For the discerning homebuyer with an exact vision for a dream home — including the ideal location — Coventry Homes’ Build on Your Lot program can take the guesswork and potential high cost out of building your own home.
Coventry has been in the business of constructing homes since 1988. While known primarily as one of the nation’s premiere volume builders, the company also builds semi-custom homes, leveraging their knowledge and buying power as a nationally recognized builder.
“Many people know where they want to live but find that none of the homes in that area suit them,” said Paul Blackburn, Region President for McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc., (MHI), parent company of Coventry Homes. “So, they opt to buy property — at which point, they are faced with the daunting task of designing and constructing a home on it. That’s where we come in.”
Through the Build on Your Lot program, customers can contract with Coventry to build that home — even in urban areas such as Bellaire, Meyerland, Memorial, Spring Branch and inside the Loop.
“The advantages to building with us are many,” Blackburn said. “We offer one-stop shopping and trained professionals who will be with you every step of the way. We have a team of in-house architects available to make custom changes to one of our many floor plans and a design center where a professional designer will help you choose all of your interior finishes.”
Coventry boasts an extensive selection of award-winning floor plans. These flexible-construction designs allow buyers to make any changes necessary to ensure the home fits their needs.
Plans are divided into three series ensuring that there is a design to fit every budget. The Estate Collection is priced from the $350,000s, the Legacy Collection from the $370,000s and Heritage Collection from the $400,000s. Each series provides a different range of standard features.
“As a volume builder, Coventry Homes also has relationships with a variety of contractors and suppliers,” Blackburn said. “These relationships can translate into savings for Build on Your Lot customers.”
Coventry Homes is also an industry leader for energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly construction. The builder follows stringent Eco Smart building regulations. Every home Coventry builds is certified through the Environments for Living energy-efficiency program. On average, Coventry’s homes are up to 50 percent more efficient than homes built prior to year 2000. This means owners can breathe easy knowing their Coventry home will be efficient and certain to keep energy costs down. This is because the Environments for Living energy-efficiency program is designed to predetermine the amount of energy to heat and cool a home, providing optimal comfort. The progam offers the original homeowner a three-year limited guarantee for heating and cooling energy usage and overall comfort.
The Build on Your Lot process begins by contacting Coventry Homes and their team of experts, who will travel to the owner’s homesite to assess site cost, possible location adjustments, building elevation, water and electricity service before building begins — at no charge. It’s the first step to a successful building relationship and the first step in delivering a home built specifically around a customer’s needs.
Even with all the benefits of building with Coventry Homes listed above, Blackburn says that the most important advantage to buyers is Coventry Homes’ sterling reputation.
“Our customer recommendation rate is 98 percent, so customers know we stand behind our product and offer the best customer service,” he said. “With our Build on Your Lot program, we take the stress out of building your own home and turn your dream into a reality.”
