Looking for a builder
I am trying to help my parents who live in the Columbus, Ohio area to find a reputable builder(I'm in CA and can only help from afar). They are in their 60's and wanting to downsize from their current 2600+ sqft 4/3 suburban two story house. They are looking for an age in place home that may very well be their forever home.
They haven't found an existing house that suits them after almost a year of looking. They are now looking at land to build on, but are at a loss on who to talk to besides basic(Wayne, Shumacher). Their current home was built by DiYanni. This time around they do not want to be in a neighborhood.
It seems very difficult to find a modest sized home(~2000 sqft) with a large kitchen and master areas. They are preparing to downsize, but they don't want to compromise so heavily on the main spaces that they will use all the time. They don't want a luxury build, but a good solid basic house with a few key upgrades.
They also don't know anything about building and really don't need to be worrying about cracked foundations and potential roof or plumbing problems in their retirement years due to shoddy building practices.
Any solid recs, or personal experiences to pass on? Thanks in advance!
