Frequently Asked Questions

What makes a custom home custom?

According to Wikipedia, “a custom home is a one-of-a-kind home that is designed for a specific client and for a particular location”. We build your home on your lot to suit your needs.

How do I select a custom homebuilder?

In selecting a homebuilder, certainly reputation is an important consideration. Having a strong reputation, a long career in home building with a local presence is important. Select a builder who makes you feel comfortable and one whom you feel you can trust.

How much does it cost to build a custom home?

The cost of building a home can fluctuate. We believe there are four factors that greatly affect the cost of a home which we call the Four S’s… Site, Size, Structure, Selections. All have a pivotal role in determining the cost of a home. While many builders use a per square foot price, this type of estimating is too general and does not encompass the true costs associated with custom construction.

What are the steps in building a new custom home?

1. Identify a property.
2. Create a house plan.
3. Develop a construction budget.
4. Secure financing.
5. Begin construction.

What kind of warranty do you offer?

Corner Construction offers a ten-year limited structural warranty from the date of Certificate of Occupancy. This warranty consists of structural components to the house including foundation, exterior bearing walls and truss system. Corner Construction Services and all affiliated contractors offer a one-year “fit & finish” warranty from the date of Certificate of Occupancy. This warranty will cover HVAC systems, plumbing, electrical, windows/doors and roofing.

Do you have a model home or showroom I can visit?

Since Corner Construction is custom builder, we do not have model homes for you see and we do not offer a showroom of products. However, we have a great office in St. Augustine you can drop by. If you would like to see some of the homes we have built in the past, just contact us and we would be happy to take you on a tour of one of our most recent builds.

What size home is too small (or too big) for you? And what size budgets?
