Custom Built/Design and Build Homes
This service is currently not our main focus. While we have “cut our teeth” building many very nice custom homes (see below), we are currently finding our greatest success in major home renovation/remodeling projects. While central Virginia is overflowing with home builders, professional remodeling contractors are in short supply. Most of the inquiries that we receive for custom home building are from folks who seem to be “kicking tires” and “getting three bids” searching for the best value “per square foot”. Our experience has shown time and again that this is an approach that does not benefit the customer nor the contractor.
If you have a specific custom home project that you are especially interested in speaking with us about, and realize that we will be working differently (and at a greater cost) than most other contractors, please let us know. We are certainly not intending to come across as disagreeable, but are merely trying to limit frustrations for you and also to help us focus on what we do best for existing client projects without too many interruptions. And, of course, we will be excited to talk if instead of a home building inquiry, you are interested in a major home remodeling project.
While the market is flooded with many new houses for sale, some people are looking for a builder who can build a custom house to suit their needs and design preferences. We have also noticed that over the recent years, the quality of new homes seems to have declined as houses are thrown together and speculated to make a fast buck. Often times, it is also hard to find the right floor plan among the thousands of online plans available.
Carrying on the tradition of his father, Ken Milton, Todd Milton and Milton Construction Company are among the few contractors who can design and build your unique custom home. The journey from your ideas to an actual house you can live in is one of our specialties.
The scrollable pictures below are just such a case in point. These folks spent a few years speaking with us prior to starting the planning process. After many conversations, we eventually were able to put their ideas into the form of blueprints—and then, finally—their home. This was probably the most unique and custom-tailored home we have ever built. In the pictures that follow, you will see the front porch of this featured home plus a custom design and build home newly completed in 2020. Also, when you scroll, you will see more custom home examples from large and luxurious, to a southern hospitality home, and a smaller starter home that we have built several times in various locations here.
When we first met with Todd and Ken of Milton Construction, we knew right away they were the builders for us. They could have not been any more helpful to us than they were. We were living 900 miles away from the property we were building our retirement home on. We knew there were going to be obstacles to overcome living so far and not being able to see progress and oversee the building. But, we needed not worry, Todd was always in contact with us via e-mails and phone. Any questions or changes he understood and made happen.
Milton Construction went the extra mile to make us happy. We never felt we had to question anything done to our home. They delivered on their promises and we are happy to report that the house was ready on time for us to move in. They worked through snow and any other condition that presented it self. The quality of their construction is flawless and professional. They use the best materials and qualified workers. We can’t say enough good about Milton Construction. Even after we moved in they are fine-tuning a few things in a timely manner. Thank you for making my dream house come to life. I look forward to living here a long long time.
