Here's What It's Like to Build a Stanton Home - Reviews of Stanton Homes:

We are pleased to write the strongest possible review of Stanton Homes and the team that build our beautiful, custom home in the historic Hope Valley in Durham NC.

Through lifetime of relocations, we had owned six homes previously and had an experience of building a custom home in Kentucky. Thus, as we set out to build our retirement home where we plan to “age in place”, we began our search for a custom homebuilder. Our criteria were to select a local builder, rather than a national company, for the following reasons.

(a) We wanted the builder to create a unique home for us and not force us to select from 6-8 cookie-cutter designs.

(b) We wanted a builder to respect the beauty of North Carolina and not bull doze acres of land to build 50-100 homes from which to select one.

(c) We wanted a builder who lived in the area, rather than “build and move away”. Only then, a long-term guarantee would be honored and would mean something.

(d) We wanted a builder who is affordable. After meeting with two national builders and 3 local builders, we selected Stanton Homes, 800 W Williams St, Apex, NC 27502.

My wife and I are extremely pleased with our overall Stanton Homes experience, and highly recommend them to anyone who would like a beautiful custom home. The Stanton Home team really personalizes the details and everyone on their team is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.

The most valuable player (MVP) in the construction team is of course, Phil Travers, the Project Manager. From the very beginning, he told us that he would meet with us as often as we need him at the site. He was always available to answer our questions and met us on a regular basis on site to discuss any issues that we found. Since we had partially retired, we could be at the site 2-3 times a week and prepared a long list of questions for him. Being compulsive, we prepared such check lists each time we met him. We texted and emailed him with follow-up questions. We didn't really need to be on site this frequently and some of our questions were premature in that they would have been solved over time. In responding to such questions, Phil was very patient, polite and kind. He took the time to explain to us how each issue will be addressed.

Building a house is an arduous, anxiety provoking process, requiring attention to thousands of details. Patience and persistence on part of the client yield handsome dividends but the client needs a reputed trustworthy builder and a cohesive, skillful team. Stanton Home provides such a team. We strongly recommend Stanton Home as a custom homebuilder in the research triangle area of North Carolina.

Here's What It's Like to Build a Stanton Home - Recommendation from a Client Review:

DesignBuildTeam.jpg"I highly recommend Stanton Builders.     The team at Stanton made the process of building a new home very comfortable, despite the inherent stress of the building process. From the start Larry was knowledgeable and helpful getting the house and garage plans modified to our needs.

Kelly dealt fantastically with the permitting issues and kept us updated as the permitting progressed.

Andrea was invaluable for her design sense and taste, helping us through a seemingly overwhelming number of choices.

Of course Nichelle kept us making timely choices in the Builder Trend software that was straightforward and easy to use.

Phil, our Project Manager, worked closely with us from the day he was assigned our project. His knowledge of building and ability to schedule the work efficiently allowed the project to move smoothly despite the weather and permitting issues. He provided updates and feedback on the building progress and was available for questions anytime. Phil was detail oriented and showed great follow through on items that concerned us.

The Stanton Team is to be commended for a great job building a beautiful home."

About the McCoy Floor Plan Design

Stanton Homes Reviews | Stanton Homes Complaints

Everything for every day is on the first floor. The open layout makes entertaining even easier. Open the double french doors off the dining room for indoor / outdoor gatherings. 

The wrap around porch is a huge component of this home, boldly stating that outdoor living is just as important as being inside. We used 10" round columns to further emphasize the prominence of the porch, with Arts and Crafts details that add clarity, and ceiling fans and lights that ensure enjoyment night or day.

Step inside, and the home feels much bigger. Every square foot is used efficiently - with quite a few modifications from the original plan to fit the lifestyle of the owners. The house layout was flipped, the mudroom was artfully arranged to make the best use of every inch - including a pantry - and of course the kitchen was rearranged.
