What we have historically built
First Choice Custom Homes, the top home builders Springfield MO was started in the summer of 2010 and at the time we would do anything from handyman work to building the occasional home. We started by building a few small starter homes in the Republic area and eventually we were building various sizes of custom homes all over the Ozarks, from Mount Vernon and Marshfield, MO Down to Ozark, Nixa, and even Highlandville, MO.
The first homes that we built were small ranch style homes, but we always used high quality materials and we took pride in the fact that our homes were built better than the other starter homes that were being built by others in the same neighborhood that we were building in. Once we started getting more established, we started building more custom homes in multiple styles as well as remodeling homes. Then in 2016, we stopped remodeling and focused solely on new construction. Now we are building custom and semi-custom homes.
Styles of homes
There are multiple styles of homes to choose from, following is a description of a few popular styles of home that are being built in the Ozarks. The home builders Springfield MO of choice can help you through this process.
Craftsman – Craftsman style homes typically use a combination of stone and siding materials on the outside of the home combined with square columns on top of stone bases on the front porch. Inside, it uses 3 or 5 panel doors with 1×4’s and 1×6’s for trim, warm colored wood floors in the common areas, and shaker style cabinet doors.
Contemporary/ Modern – While these two houses are not exactly the same, they are close enough to be classified together. They will both have flat roofs, clean lines and a mix of stone or brick and stucco as well as a mix of metal roofing on any pitched roof and rubberized roofing for the unseen flat roofs. The inside of the home will have open floor plans, lots of large windows, and they will use a lot of cooler colors throughout.
Colonial – Colonial homes are known for large porches with grand round columns. These homes typically have all brick fronts and either siding or brick on the sides and back and are usually 2 story homes. Historically this home is broken up into smaller rooms on the inside, but with the open concept that is so popular today, we try to keep the house plan open while using soffits and columns to define the different spaces within the home.
Farmhouse – Farmhouse style homes are known for their large porches and white siding on the outside. Inside they have simple white trim, wood flooring and shaker style cabinets. All in all it is designed for maximum usable efficiency and the home builders Springfield MO at First Choice Custom Homes Can Help!
French Country – For years, French Country was the rage in the Springfield market. They are known for their steep pitched shaker roofs along with a combination of brick stone and stucco exteriors. Inside they have lots of stone, opulent large woodwork, and ornate cabinetry along with hand textured, glazed walls, making it look like stucco on the inside of the home.
Ranch home – Ranch homes are typically a timeless look that have always been popular. On the exterior, these homes have a 4/12 to a 8/12 pitch roof, and a mix of brick and siding. Inside they typically will have colonial style casing and base with 6 panel or flush doors.
Other types of homes that are popular in other parts of the country, but few are built in this area, are Victorian, Cape Cod, Tudor, and Mediterranean. If you are interested in any style of home, give us a call and we will look forward to the opportunity to help you build the home of your dreams!
