Immediately after we got back in to see the damage to our home we knew it would be a daunting task to come back. Our home, full of over 20 years of memories, was a mud coated moldering shell. A decision had to be made – do we rebuild it or tear down and replace? Soon it became apparent that the best option for us was to replace the house and start over. It was no lightly taken decision. We researched and made calls and checked all of our options finally deciding on going modular.
But who to choose? The amount of builders offering modular in the wake of Sandy was overwhelming. Again more research, phone calls, and meetings with the builders we decided best had what fit our needs. This decision at first was based on advertised price and floor plans. Not the best decision as it turned out.
Our first meeting with a relatively large builder was a huge disappointment. After phone calls to them, discussions, emails with pictures and plans we were interested in – when we arrived at our first meeting (a 2 hour plus drive from where we were) after waiting nearly an hour for our appointment to start – the first thing we were asked was “Why are you here?”. Somehow we thought there would be some notes, a file, a copy of our email?
Why am I mentioning this – well as it turns out pretty much everywhere we turned we were met with disappointments. All the builders were so “busy” selling and building homes that we were just another one of the fish out in the ocean of Sandy casualties. So in the end – we did it ourselves, and there was much to learn.
We soon realized the best approach to building was in the management of the project. Builders are great at building, but it takes a dedication to detail to really walk a client through the maze of options and decisions that exist in order to deliver a home. We will walk you through the entire process and make it seem simple. Discuss all of the options with you and give you the information you need to make the decisions that are right for you – not easy for the builder. The choice is yours – we can deliver a turn-key home OR we can deliver your home to your site and set it on your foundation in as little as 4 weeks from the order. Either way we will be there throughout the entire process. That’s why we say “Your wants, your needs, your dreams”. It’s what we deliver and what you should expect.
Make the decision to work with us and we will soon be saying Welcome to your new SI Home!
