This was our first time building a custom home. Jim and Julie Young of Teal Creek Homes made it an amazing experience for us. We were interested in building in an area that hadn’t been completely developed yet. Jim helped us to secure the lot we wanted. He and Julie also met with us multiple times prior to the lot even being ready so we could put together the ideal house plan. As soon as the lot was ready, Jim and his crew were ready to start building our house.
Next came the interior design. Julie was extremely organized and gave us a heads up as to what decisions we would need to be making and when. She met us at various locations to help us with choosing everything from flooring to light fixtures. She even stood outside with us on a windy, cold March day to choose what exterior paint color would look best with our stone! Teal Creek also had an interior designer that will meet with you. It was so great to have these two professionals helping me out. Julie would suggest stores for me to shop in, but ultimately the decision was mine, so if I didn’t find something I loved it was no big deal to get house items from another place. There was never pressure to buy from a particular store or choose a particular product. Julie learned my style quickly and was so helpful!
I always felt kept in the loop about things that were happening with our house and knew that if I had a question or concern I could call up Jim or Julie and get a quick response back. We threw them for a few loops including deciding to finish the basement (after all of the framing had already taken place!) and making a frantic call to Julie one evening because I was doubtingsome color decisions I had made. She met me at the house that week with samples of my hardwood, tile, grout, and paint so I could see everything together in my house. She even brought the interior designer!!
Jim and Julie obviously love what they do and strive to build the best house suited to each of their clients’ needs. I would build another house with Jim and Julie in a heartbeat, but I don’t think that day will come any time soon. We love our Teal Creek Home and can’t imagine being anywhere else!
