Renovate vs. Build A better way to transform your home

A major renovation is a huge undertaking, often requiring no less of your time, energy, and resources than building a new home. Here’s how renovation compares to building a home with TJH.

Frequently asked questions

Our home plans are designed to work within specific city and county requirements. We understand the nuanced restrictions, codes and ordinances within each jurisdiction. Our library of plans maximize the size and functionality of homes on the average homesite in the neighborhoods in which we build.

Where we build

Our all-inclusive pricing includes architecture, construction management, interior design, landscape architecture and installation, and closing services for the home. It also covers all demo, permit fees, new utilities fees, and any additional city-related costs.

Every TJH home plan offers a designer-curated selection of customizations and interior upgrades. These options are selected before contract execution and detailed in the new home construction agreement. This process allows us to guarantee the total price of a home regardless of material or labor cost changes during the course of a new home build.

Our preferred lenders offer special financing that takes your existing mortgage off the books and rolls your new construction loan into a permanent, long-term loan. You only pay a one-time close to minimize transaction costs. For more information, connect with a TJH home buyer specialist.
