Express Yourself

One of the best parts about building a brand-new home with Challenger is the ability to personalize your home; its all about choices for you! Choosing your own finishes is a huge reason many folks build a brand-new home instead of getting a used one. Rather than having to put up with the preferences of a previous owner, you get your home your way. Every choice is yours to make. Take a generic floor plan and add the elements that make it a home for you and your family. You get to pick the upgrades and options that matter to you. You get to express yourself through a color palette and finishes that make your home one-of-a-kind.

Design By Challenger

Once you finalize your floor plan and home site the next step in the building process is your Design Consultation. It’s time to make all those decisions about colors, flooring, lighting, cabinets, and countertops. This meeting is held either at the Design Studio in our corporate office or at the model home in the neighborhood where you are building your new home. Some homebuilders view the design process as a profit center, utilizing commission sales people to up-sell and over-sell customers. At Challenger Homes it’s all about making life better. That is why we use salaried design professionals in our Design Studio whose only mission is to help you craft your house into your home, meeting all of your needs, many of your wants and helping you stay within your budget.
