Answers to Our Most Asked Questions
How Do I Get Started?
How Much Do Turnkey Homes Cost?
Our goal is to provide affordable homes without sacrificing quality. By using innovative designs, limited employees, and few subcontractors, we are able to keep our overhead down, allowing us to build homes at affordable prices.
What Quality Can I Expect From Turnkey?
Turnkey Construction homes are built by its employees; we are not a general contractor who hires other firms to perform the work. By being on the job we are able to control the quality from the ground up. The subcontractors we do use are held to the same high standards that our customers expect from us.
What About Customization?
Turnkey’s building and design experience and hands-on approach allow us to work one-on-one with the customer to create a living space that is both functional and comfortable. Do you have a plan that you like? Or not quite sure what you want? We can work from existing plans or from your ideas to design a home within your budget.
Most of our homes are designed with radiant floor heat. Radiant heating quietly and continuously warms by circulating warm water through tubing located beneath the floor. For optimal value, on-demand water heaters are used in conjunction with this heating method. Discover the comfort of radiant floor heat!
What Building Codes & Materials Are Used?
Turnkey Construction is committed to its customers. Staying abreast of evolving building code regulations and keeping up with changing building materials and practices remain a priority. We are proud of our capability to provide customers with options best-suited to fit their needs. We are equally proud of the workmanship that goes into each and every project we undertake.
Our commitment extends past the end of the project. Customer follow-ups are protocol. We are there to answer questions, warranty our work, and provide overall assistance to make the experience of a new home as simple and enjoyable as it should be.
Custom Home vs. Spec Home
The primary difference between a custom home and a spec home is the funding.
Custom homes are funded by the customer, usually through the utilization of a construction loan from his choice of financial institution. Custom homes offer the customer flexibility for design from the early planning stages. It is a team project between the builder and the customer throughout all stages.
Spec homes are funded by the builder. Normally, there is not yet a customer, so the builder needs to use his knowledge of the market base to provide a comfortable home for his yet-unknown customer. For the most part, buyers of spec homes are purchasing the house as designed by the builder, as materials are ordered early to guarantee delivery on schedule. Depending on the timing, a customer may still have the opportunity to customize appliances, colors, and flooring choices.
Turnkey has built numerous spec homes, all with excellent results. We enjoy the opportunity to look at the topography and layout of the lot, design a house to maximize its views and size, and create a future home for that special someone we’ve yet to meet. In this way, there is no difference between Turnkey’s custom homes and spec homes.
