Your DreamsInspire Our Work

As first-time custom home builders, we had an idea of what we were looking for – a contemporary home that still had warmth – but we did not have a design. Jerry made it come to life as he incorporated warm woods, a rock entrance, single sloped roof, and beams throughout which give it that warm, homey feel. He was eager to listen, ask questions you never think about asking, sketched out ideas as we talked, and hit it right on the spot. His patience and vision were amazing… It feels like we have something we have envisioned for many years.” – Norm and Donna

The Story is What It’s About

Whether from homeowners, builders, or the media, here are examples of how young families have used easily-customized JWR Stock Plans and couples have consulted with JWR for complete Customs. Maybe their stories can inspire YOUR story…

We saw our idea come to life quickly and easily

“As first-time custom home-builders, we had an idea of what we were looking for – a contemporary home that still had warmth – but we did not have a design. Jerry made it come to life as he incorporated warm woods, a rock entrance, single sloped roof, and beams throughout which give it that warm, homey feel. He was eager to listen, ask questions you never think about asking, sketched out ideas as we talked, and hit it right on the spot. His patience and vision were amazing. It feels like we have something we have envisioned for many years. We saw our idea come to life quickly and easily, and ended up creating a great open floor plan where we can entertain with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and a patio that is an extension of the living room and opens up our home. It feels like we have something we have envisioned for many years. As a woman, I like basic, clean lines, but also unique things like my bedroom walk-in closet with an island! I had ideas from more of a male perspective, including a beautiful indoor steel staircase – and we have it! Unlike other designers, he never said No, I can’t do that. Instead, he said, Let’s see how to make it work. He never frowned on us. And thanks to JWR’s experience, the contractor who built it had very little or no hiccups. We never had to go back once to ask for a change. Jerry was absolutely a pleasure to work with and made it a fun experience. We have nothing but good things to say about Jerry and wouldn’t question if we built another home who we’d go to!” Norm and Donna, Homeowners

The Dream of a Custom Home – at a Fraction of the Price

“We were able to get a custom home by purchasing a JWR Stock Plan and having it modified. JWR revised it a bit, changed a few things for us, and we’ve had so many comments. We see people pulling off the road to take a picture and ask us about it! We’ve used JWR Stock Plans five or six times for our own home and spec homes we build because of the ideas, finished product, and usability. We’ve seen homes where other plans seem to work, but you open the door in the laundry room and can’t get to the dryer. JWR is thorough and if we need to change something they work with us. JWR knows what spec buyers buy, and you want to build something people like. Who wants to build an ugly house, right? We are happy with JWR. Their plans are more affordable, they are great people to deal with, and are honest.” – Ken and Carla, Homeowners and Builders

 

The Ease of Building a JWR Stock Plan Home – Buildability is big for us

“We have used other firms in the past, but the quality of stock plans is not the same. We have built about a dozen homes using JWR Stock Plans and they are the most complete stock plans I’ve used…easy to build, all the numbers are there through all phases, very thorough. You are never left guessing  and don’t have to figure things out. JWR plans are buildable from a builder’s standpoint, and visually appealing…always look nice…never saw one that looks bad. Sometimes you see stock plans being built and you say, What happened there?  Their Stock Plan price is good. As house prices go up, you have to save wherever you can. People are trying to save $5,000 where they can.  JWR Ready to Build Plans are a good idea! – Marc, Contractor
