    I was wondering which builders any of you might have had good or bad experiences with? We'll be building a house at some point so any feedback is appreciated. I've looked at a lot of the builders sites and reviewed floor plans and although there are quite a few plans we like we haven't narrowed it down much.

    Here are some of the bigger/popular builders I've heard of. Any specific experiences with any of these builders?
    Remington Homes
    Orton Homes
    Happe Homes
    Greenland Homes

    I highly recommend checking out Drake Homes. Depending on your price range i recommend them and Stanbrough as well. Team USA mortgage provides excellent options for the loan process too.

    If you want quality, look for a builder that only does 25 or fewer homes per year as they typically are more hands on.

    Hard to answer your question without a price range.

    Look at some existing homes when possible.

    Based on the prices I see from the houses listed on their website, they are out of our price range.

    Nice looking house. I like everything about the floorplan but I would maybe like the garage walk thru door to open into the kitchen directly. Not trying to be nit picky but I like it.
