Are you limited to building from Mitchell Homes floorplans, or can I provide my own set of plans for construction?

 

Certainly! We welcome the opportunity for you to bring your own set of plans. Our team will promptly provide pricing, typically within 4-6 weeks. Alternatively, we offer a selection of 40 fully customizable floorplans, featuring various elevation choices and an extensive array of options and upgrades.

Why build custom?

A custom home is a unique residence designed for a specific client and location, providing control over layout, land placement, and accessibility. At Mitchell Homes, we aim to make the home-building experience exciting and enjoyable, ensuring your investment is well-protected. Hear from our happy clients and find out why building custom with Mitchell is the best choice for you and your family.

What defines a stick-built home and its significance? 

“Stick-built" refers to homes constructed using the traditional method of assembling materials on-site. This approach offers the highest level of customization, building substantial value and equity over time. Researching the resale value of modular homes versus stick-built homes in your area is crucial, as stick-built homes typically exhibit higher appreciation and resale value.

Custom home vs. spec home: What's the difference?

A custom home is tailored explicitly to your preferences, allowing you to make decisions on every aspect of the design. Mitchell Homes offers full customization with over 40,000+ options and upgrades to suit your unique lifestyle. In contrast, a spec home lacks a specific owner and is built based on the builder's perception of market demand, offering limited customization and often overlooking factors such as comfort, view, and quality.

What new home warranty do you provide?

Every Mitchell Home includes a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty as a standard feature.


My husband and I reached out to Mitchell Homes back in December of 2020 when we thought about building a home. Naomi helped us from the very beginning! I could not have asked for a better person to help us with this process. Naomi was upfront, honest, and SO helpful from the very beginning. We honestly wouldn't have built our house if it wasn't for her guidance & the knowledge she gave us! We had two days to decide if we wanted to build our home due to the lumber prices increase! Naomi was never "pushy" on making us make a decision but gave us all the information we needed to decide.


Once we locked in with Mitchell Homes, the process has moved fairly quick! I did not know much about a house build before starting this process but everyone has been extremely helpful. If you are thinking about Mitchell Homes, defiantly reach out! Everyone was very helpful and answered any questions I had. It has been a 10/10 experience! We are so excited to live in our new beautiful home!
