Extreme Home New Construction In Kentucky


Lizette, I've been told that it usually takes 4 -6 months to build a house. Will I have to wait that long? I only need one that is about 1500 square feet. That seems like a long time.  Mike A.

Time and moneyAnswer:

Mike A., It really depends on the builder and the weather.

Well... maybe the sub-contractors too.

I just closed on a house today that took just a little over a month to build.

I asked the builder what was the fastest house he ever built start to finish and he said '14 days!'

What was amazing was the quality of this builder's homes. Absolutely top quality.

One of my home inspectors said the quality was unusual for a smaller home. There was pride in the workmanship. Not even a bad spot of paint anywhere during my final walk-through.

The difference may be that the builder has his own team of seasoned professionals for every job on the construction and he owned his own heavy equipment.

No sub-contractors used at all. Kind of like watching extreme home makeover at work. With the right team...miracles can happen. 


Finding a new Kentucky home has never been so easy!

Most of the area I sell doesn't have new construction anymore...I LOVE the smell of new houses and the looks of new, fun materials! Ahhh!

Congrats on your closing!

Lizzette - What's incredible is that the builder was able to build and entire home in only 14 days and it was "top quality"  - we could use builders like that were I live!

Holy Cow!! 14 Days! Really? How did they coordinate all the utilities and hookup inspections? We have a lot of new construction in my area and they are quite fast, but no 14 day completions...

Lizzete~14 days that's fast. In Seattle it takes allot longer due to the running inspection process. I like the Q & A format!
