The Answers

Rachel Brown Homes

I don’t have floorplans. What’s next?

That’s the exciting part of CUSTOM building with Rachel Brown Homes. Do you dream of a workshop for your tools? A large closet for your heels? A man cave? We think that’s AWESOME. We take your ideas as well as many resources from our floorplan inventory and design with a draftsman exactly what you dream.

Should we buy a lot or land prior to meeting with your team?

If you currently own a lot or land, we will walk your lot to make sure the home we design is situated on your land the perfect way for your lifestyle. We take the burden of site planning and prepping off of your shoulders. If you do not own land yet, we can assist you in locating your desired homesite as well as researching to make sure that the land is viable to be built on.

What if I still have a home to sell?

No problem! We work with many talented real estate agents that can assist in the listing and timing for the sale of your home. On average, our Huntsville AL custom homes take about five to six months to build. We also have excellent working relationships with many lenders who can provide you with exactly the loan that fits your needs best. We believe in teamwork at Rachel Brown Homes!

Will Rachel Brown Homes handle my site work for me?

Unlike some builders that expect you to prepare your site and have it “build ready” before they start, we do all of that for you. Since every lot is different, as part of your lot walk and quote, we will estimate the costs involved to get your site ready for your new home.

Isn’t picking out my design selections and staying under budget stressful?

The most thrilling part of working with Rachel Brown Homes is that Rachel meets with you at every vendor design center and assists you in not only picking out all your design selections like lighting fixtures and flooring, but she stays involved with making sure you stay within your budget and still get the “look” you have in mind.

Do you have Model Homes or Homes Under Construction I can view?

We always have projects in multiple “stages” of construction. Contact us for a list of homes to view!

How long does it take from start to finish?

On average, it takes about two months to design floorplans, about two weeks to “create an estimate” to build the floorplans, 30 days for the lender to close on the construction loan and about four to six months to build. So approximately, eight months total from inception to move-in day!

Do you offer a warranty?

Rachel Brown Homes offers a one year warranty from the date of move-in.

What are some of your construction standards?

Every home is tailored to our customer’s specific desires and needs. However, we build by the following standards in most of the custom homes we build~

  • Working with Rachel Brown Homes has been a smooth experience from Day 1. My clients were wanting a specific look for their home, had particular requirements for the home itself that they could not stray away from, and in a location with very few opportunities. One builder could not meet my clients' specific requirements within the price range they allotted for themselves.

  • Recently I began working with clients who are relocating to the area. After viewing several homes, nothing was clicking with them, even new construction by other builders. I suggested that we speak with Rachel Brown Homes about a custom built home. Right away, I saw the concern about the idea of "custom built". I could tell that they were thinking "expensive, long build times, and overwhelming choices.
