Here's What It's Like to Build a Raleigh Custom Home - Review of Stanton Homes:
"Stan (the owner) has put together a group of people that care about the quality of home they build. I would like to mention that it took us about a year to find land to build but Stanton Homes honored there initial quote even after a year (which is technically only for 60 days). This spoke volumes about their character to ensure that we were building the most affordable home possible. Although cost of building materials had most likely increased after a year, they didn’t try to pass the increase in expense on to us.
During the initial design phase we worked with Jim, who is super!!! Jim was always accommodating to our busy work schedules. He was available day and night to work with us on any concerns about design changes.
We also really enjoyed working with Phil (an up and coming project manager at Stanton Homes that is great to work with) over the last 8 months of construction. As a home owner and someone who has some experience in construction, I was heavily involved throughout the entire building process. Some companies might have found it somewhat intrusive during the building process but Phil was more than accommodating to address any concerns or questions I had. I would like to mention that Stanton Homes has a framer (Nick) they use that I would recommend to anyone because he does an excellent work!!
I also would like to mention that Andrea, the interior designer, is great with helping you make your home look beautiful- thanks again Andrea for all of your suggestions, especially the dining room color.
Darwin and Charles are great to work with as well. They wrap up many of the fine little details just before you move in. We have been in our home for about four months and have not had any problems. For the size of this company, they are one of the best builders out there. I would recommend this company to anyone. If you ever need any additional details just send me an email at [email protected] I would be more than happy to talk with you further about our experience with this company. Overall this is an excellent company.
Just to give everyone a final update, we have been in our home for approximately 18 months now. We did not have any major issues during our 6 month, 8 month, 12 month, and final 18 month inspection provided by Stanton Homes. There were your general nail pops and minor caulking issues that happen as a house goes through multiple seasons. Phil had the painters come in immediately during our final house inspection to deal with those issues. The painters were an excellent crew that cleaned up every day after they finished, which is something we really appreciated given that we have two young children. Stanton Homes builds an excellent home and we are very pleased with the craftsmanship and friendly service provided during our building process. Make sure you ask for Phil when you decide to build with Stanton Homes."
About The Christina Floor Plan Design
The Christina is an open concept floor plan with no columns between the kitchen and great room. The foyer flows into the great room and formal dining, which has archways along each wall. The large kitchen boasts an angled island (with bar seating), corner walk-in pantry, and herringbone backsplash design above the cooking range.
Inside, you'll see examples of an angled island kitchen open to the great room. A navy blue formal dining room with archways. A wainscoting firplace with built in bookcases on each side. And a his and hers master suite with bay sitting area and separate vanity bath. See a photo gallery of this home, here.
A bold navy blue paint gives the formal dining room contemporary contrast in the predominantly beige home:
A slight vault in the great room opens up the space, with a wall of windows and glass doors and white painted bookcases to keep the room bright:
The home office is just inside the one story barrel vault foyer, through the double glass French doors. The framed opening leads into the master suite:
