What do you think of this house?

gingerjennyMarch 22, 2012


This is the general size house we are looking for except one story. Nothing over the top but nice.

We received a quote from this company for 40K less than another company. We have only received 2 quotes so far.

I'm looking at the two bids and I really can't see where the $40,000 difference is coming from.

The higher bid company is using silverline windows which i have read are not that great.

Company b is using andersone 200 series for our windows. He showed me two houses. One using 200 and the other using silverline and to me it was a huge difference in quality.

The higher bid company makes some beautiful houses and are more well known.

How did you finally pick a builder!? its crazy.

Let me know what you think of the model home. I realize its not as fancy as what a lot of you are building but it works well for our needs.

Here is a link that might be useful: model home

Ps. everything seemed well made. Dovetail on cabinets. Floors didn't squeak. Foundations looked ok to me. Not sure what I was looking at. Garage was insulated.

You could ask the higher bidder to explain the differences. That's what a friend of mine did and he explained things that someone not in the business probably wouldn't know.

looking at the link is there anything that jumps out at you as strange or as a red flag? i guess that would be the question. I have no idea what i'm looking for when i look at a model.

The floors didn't squeak so i was pretty happy.
