Idaho Home Builder Recommendation. Builder Recommendation

After looking for 3 months for a home in the Boise area, we decided to have one built. This was due to seeing the quality, value, and craftsmanship in a Syringa home compared to buying a previously built home. Steve is the consummate professional--he quickly returns calls/emails and I experienced the highest level of customer service with Steve. Our realtor noted that of all the new home deals he has brokered, Steve's systems, contracts, and time lines were unparalleled. For a construction project, Steve was only one week off his estimated completed time, due mostly in part to the Thanksgiving holiday. Contracts for change orders were handled every step of the way in a timely fashion, and we were reimbursed down to the penny if we changed any thing that would give us a credit. I can go on and on regarding Steve and his professionalism and the very easy process it was getting our first home built. But until you step inside a Syringa home and see the amazing quality, you can never appreciate it. We got top of the line or near top of the line materials, accents, fixtures, carpet, hardwood floor, cabinets, etc all for his BASE price! You can always spend more, of course, but I am blown away by how many people comment on how beautiful our house is...features that come STANDARD on a Syringa home.

There were certain features we wanted for our home, which made finding a previously built home in the area and price we wanted rather difficult. Steve was able to modify an existing home design to include ALL the features we wanted, including a half bathroom downstairs, and winding staircase. We had so many choices for the base price we were overwhelmed when we had to choose from so many styles and materials, but his professional home decorator helped tie all the colors and materials together to make unified style. One example stands out in my mind which exemplifies how "custom" our home is: we were told to choose any style of fireplace we wanted. My wife looked at hundreds of pictures of fireplaces online, printed it out, and Steve's fireplace guy matched it EXACTLY! This was all included in the base price--no extra! The details and touches he made regarding interior trim, wall accents, and color also make this home feel truly unique, not just a mass produced home.

There are so many elements my wife and I enjoy, but I think we feel that our home is a work of art--Steve's ability to affordably build a high quality home to live in. Even 6 months later, I wake up and love being at home. I almost would rather not leave to go on vacation and just stay home--my house is that cool!

Fred Meyer has everything from indoor/outdoor stuff to items for every room of the house. Bed Bath and Beyond had the best curtain selection around.

Ben Janke from Vizions real estate was top notch. He spent a couple hours with us up front, telling us his role in our home buying experience, answered all our questions we brought to him and some we hadn't. After going out for a couple of hours for about 2 weeks, he figured out exactly what features we were looking for and then it was just finding the right location/price, which ultimately lead to building our first home.

What advice would you give someone buying or building a new home?   What advice would you give someone buying or building a new home?

When building a new home, there is a high degree of time involvement during certain phases to pick out your desired materials. After that, things just cruise along except for on site check points which Steve uses to ensure the builder and buyer are on the same page. I did not feel compelled or thought it necessary to check the site every day for fear of problems. Steve runs a tight ship.
