Investment Grade Products. Are you ready to trade up from builder’s grade? Let us assist you in weighing the benefits of the best available brands, products and features. Details matter. Build on our experience to create the home your family deserves. Clients can either chose one-stop shopping working directly with our professionals to develop a color scheme, create a fabulous gourmet kitchen, detail a luxurious master suite or we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with clients’ interior designer.
Craftsmanship isn’t a myth or a skill possessed by a chosen few; it’s a process. It begins with careful planning, thoughtful choices and an experienced design team who can guide your steps. It is realized by sourcing the finest products and materials then directing skilled trade contractors through a rigorous scheduling and inspection regime.
Define Your Style. When you drive up to your dream home do you imagine a Main Line Manor house, a cozy Craftsman Cottage, Tuscan Villa, sprawling Adirondack Lodge or even Minimalist Modern? Trust your instincts! When you peer in the window do you see an open plan where the spacious family room, sunny breakfast nook and spectacular island kitchen overlook a natural stone veranda? Or is a formal center hall colonial torn from the pages of the Philadelphia Story your heart’s desire? Let us help you to realize your vision, whatever it looks like. Chose to either modify one of our existing plans or work with an architect to create a one-of-a-kind structure. GCB has long standing relationships with many of the leading architects in the region.
Build New or Remodel? So should I build my dream house now to take advantage of the record low mortgage rates and construction costs? Or should I refinance my current home to get the funds I need to make it the showplace I’ve always wanted?
Things to consider:
· Is the building unique, historic or otherwise worthy of restoration?
· Is the location irreplaceable: the view, the privacy, the schools or the neighborhood?
· Will the neighborhood support the increased value of the remodeled home?
· How do I find a lot, an architect and a builder I can trust?
