We Build Houses on your land

Simple House Building / November 3, 2019

Not everyone wants to live in a planned development, so if you are one of those homebuyers, our Build on Your Land building program was designed with you in mind.

We are often approached about building one of our homes on a customer's own lot or by those who want to build a home with their own plans. Others do not own land yet and would appreciate help in locating a lot outside of our LSSH communities that has suitable attributes for building their dream home.

If you choose us as your homebuilder, we would gladly assist you, at no charge, in finding a lot or in evaluating your property on its attributes as a good building site.

Geographically, we build within several coastal counties, especially Effingham, Bryan, Bulloch, Liberty, McIntosh, Chatham, and Glynn. Discuss your situation with us, and let us price one of our homes on your land, or ask us to help you locate land that would be suitable for building and your needs.

On this page is a new home we recently completed on St. Simons Island. We worked closely with the customer to quote both the land preparation and the actual construction of the home. To learn how you can get started, read more about what's included in our quotes and how the process works.

For more information, contact a new home specialist at 912-208-4133.
