As a homebuilder, we take pride in using only the highest-quality materials and products in our homes. We understand that durability, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal are of the utmost importance to our customers, and we strive to deliver on all of these fronts. Our homes are built with top-of-the-line lumber and engineered wood products for framing, insulation that exceeds industry standards, energy-efficient windows and doors, and a variety of finishes such as porcelain tile, granite countertops, and all LED fixtures. We are constantly staying up-to-date with the latest building materials and technologies to provide our customers with homes that are not only beautiful but also sustainable and energy-efficient. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that all materials and products used in our homes meet or exceed industry standards and regulations. Additionally, we pay special attention to elements such as lighting, both inside and outside of the home, with ample garage, patio, and exterior lighting. Our exteriors are largely made of brick, or a combination of brick and stone. We also use higher quality faucetry and other inclusions that are above standard builder grade, to ensure a higher level of quality in our homes.

Absolutely! We would be more than happy to provide you with past testimonials or perhaps introduce you to a future neighbor. We hope to have a whole website page dedicated to this type of thing soon!

We are dedicated to providing our customers with high-quality, energy-efficient homes. That's why we have recently upgraded a variety of features in our standard building specifications. For example, we now use foam insulation in all exterior walls to improve energy efficiency and comfort. Additionally, we have transitioned to more efficient windows, with vinyl frames that have a lower thermal transfer coefficient. Furthermore, all of our lighting has been upgraded to LED fixtures, which not only improve energy efficiency, but also reduce the need for frequent bulb changes and minimize potential electrical issues. These are just a few of the standard features that we offer. If you're looking for something more, please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your options.

Our homes come equipped with a range of high-quality appliances and fixtures that are designed to make your life more comfortable and convenient. These include appliances like dishwashers and ovens, as well as fixtures like ceiling fans and light fixtures. Each of these items comes with its own manufacturer's one-year limited warranty.

When it comes to our homes, we typically categorize them by their total interior square footage, which is a measure of the total air-conditioned space within the home. Our homes generally range from 1700 sq. ft. to over 3500 sq. ft. However, it's important to note that there are other square footage measurements besides the interior living space. We recommend checking the details of each individual home regarding its covered patios, front porches, and garages – to ensure that the square footage and other spaces meet the needs of you and your family.

Yes! All of our homes come with both a covered front porch and back patio. At each location, you’ll have lighting and access to power. Each home style/floorplan will have different sizes of each of these spaces. Extending or adding on to these areas is just a conversation away – ‘Contact Us’.

We understand the importance of considering the neighborhood and surrounding area when purchasing a home for your family. Our Lake Wellington Estates and Trophy Park neighborhoods flow into the West Foundation Elementary school district, while Starwood residents attend Fowler Elementary School. From there, all three neighborhoods share the same middle school (McNeil Jr. High) and high school (Rider High School). One nearby amenity is the Memorial Stadium Sports Complex, consisting of several different recreational activity venues. Further east is Wichita Lake Park, serving as a primary entrance to the Wichita Hike & Bike trail. Access to the park is walkable or ridable via bike. Whether it's nearby schools, parks, or shopping centers, our team is happy to provide more information about the area. Simply stop by our office and speak with Judy or Tanner to learn more about what your new neighborhood has to offer.

Yes, we offer the ability to build custom homes that are fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or can work with clients to create a customized feature set that is tailored to their specific needs and budget.

We offer various options for adding on additional amenities such as pools and pergolas to enhance the overall aesthetic and functionality of the backyard. These options are only available to our direct homebuyers and can be discussed and customized to their preferences after the home purchase. We do not offer these services to non-customers.

We have long understood the growing need for dedicated office space as more and more people work from home. We have adapted our floor plans to include a variety of options for office spaces, whether it's a dedicated room or a home office nook. Many of our move-in ready homes come equipped with office space or the option to set it up.

Per statistics from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and the Texas Department of Education – Fowler Elementary and West Foundation Elementary are two of the three top elementary schools in Wichita Falls ISD. After elementary school, both McNiel Jr. High and Rider High School are highly ranked within their respective categories within the Wichita Falls Independent School District (WFISD). All three of our neighborhoods currently fall within the boundaries of these top-performing schools.

Our neighborhoods have deed restrictions that prohibit carports, but we offer the option to build additional garage space for our customers. This way, they have a secure and covered space to park their vehicles.

Custom building faqs

Yes, we can definitely assist you with building on your own lot or finding the ideal location for your new home. Contact us to learn more about the building process and start your journey today, regardless of your property status.

Having a survey of your property is the best starting point if you own the land. If not, don't worry, we can assist you with acquiring one. Additional engineering and surveying may be required in some cases.

To start the custom building process, reach out to our team for guidance and support by clicking "Contact Us". We are here to assist you throughout the entire process, from planning and budgeting to designing and building. By partnering with us, you can bring your vision to life and create a home tailored to your unique needs and budget.

Our design services are exclusively for new home customers and the fun begins shortly after we establish a builder-client relationship. As a client, you can either start immediately with one of our pre-existing plans and options sets, or you may opt to enter into a Design Services Agreement, which covers the cost of custom home design before entering into a contract or starting construction.

Our goal is to identify all desired elements of the home before construction starts. However, sometimes things can be missed and only noticed later. In such cases, we have a Change Order process in place where clients are quoted a price for the requested changes and asked if they want to proceed with the knowledge of that cost. The full amount must be paid at the time of the request.

Standard features can be influenced by your lot and location. However, in general, interior finishes are on par with those in our Starwood neighborhood homes and offer entry-level quality, trim and crown molding, a substantial lighting allowance, and typical features of an RJ Wachsman home. During the initial discussions of the builder-client relationship, we will discuss and showcase the specific standard features that will be included in your build.

Building your home with energy efficiency and sustainability in mind is possible when building from scratch. Our team can help you weigh the cost-benefit of incorporating various energy-saving and environmentally friendly options into your build.

Building a new home from start to finish typically takes around 12 months with us. We begin the process by thoroughly understanding your needs and preferences as a client through multiple meetings and discussions. This includes determining the floor plan, site, and features for both the interior and exterior of the home. Our contractors work in a coordinated and scheduled manner, with inspections taking place at different stages. However, please note that this timeline is an estimate and special projects or unforeseen circumstances, such as product unavailabilities or delays, can affect it. Despite this, we always strive to keep the project moving forward and keep you updated on progress.

To get started on your custom home building journey with us, please reach out to us for a phone consultation. We can then set up a meeting to discuss your specific needs, budget, and design vision. If our visions align, we will move forward with a Design Services Agreement (DSA) which involves a deposit for preparation of plans, site evaluation, and any architectural, engineering, or rendering needs. The cost of the DSA depends on the scope of work, and can vary from no cost for an RJWH lot and floorplan.. to several thousand dollars for a remote-build location. This stage also helps identify any potential costly issues and helps determine the final cost of the home. By entering into a DSA, we establish a builder-client relationship and begin the journey of turning your vision into a reality.

To minimize building issues, we prioritize clear communication and effective planning during the building process. If any issues do arise, we work to find appropriate solutions in a timely and cost-effective manner, always striving for a positive outcome that meets the client's needs and expectations.

Our team is ready to help you with building your new home on your land. Every parcel is unique, so please feel free to contact us to discuss your specific building opportunities and options.

Our building process is supported by a highly experienced team with decades of expertise in the field. Are on-site employees are always conducting surveys, inspections, and addressing any issues that may arise. Third-party inspections are also conducted to provide a fresh perspective and identify any potential problems. Effective communication and collaboration with our skilled subcontractors is key to our building process. We are constantly working to ensure that all concerns are promptly addressed.

Building a new home typically involves additional costs, but we may be able to offer savings compared to other builders. It's best to speak with us directly to learn about potential savings. Some common fees still apply, such as survey fees for obtaining a proper survey of your property (which may be required by lending institutions), and title/closing fees for the transaction of the home. Individuals not seeking financing have lower transactional costs associated with purchasing a new home.

Smart home features can be included in your custom home build if discussed and agreed upon during the initial stages of the builder-client relationship. They are not available as a change order request after construction has started.

We are happy to work with you to incorporate any accessibility features into your custom home build. Whether you have specific requirements for ADA compliance or other special needs, we are committed to meeting your needs and ensuring that your home is comfortable and functional for all its residents. Just let us know what you need, and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.

Yes, definitely. We have many different options on how to best equip your new home. Please note that there are restrictions when building within City limits or within certain residential neighborhoods.

Please refer to our FAQ above for statistics on school districting for our neighborhoods, but for any other location – you will have to refer to that specific addresses’ districting.

It's important to consider the installation of a pool or hot tub during the planning and design stages, as it can impact the layout of the home and the home site. Our team can work with you to incorporate these features into your custom home build.

We offer additional living space options, but we do not build basements because of our region’s general soil profile.

We have extensive knowledge and experience in local zoning and building regulations. However, every building project is unique and has its own set of challenges. If you're considering building a new home on your property, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We would be happy to discuss the specific requirements and limitations of your property and how we can help. Having detailed site information, including a survey, would greatly aid in this process and allow us to provide the best possible guidance and support.
