With an emphasis on forethought, client education and planning, Shawn’s vision was to avoid common pitfalls that customers have with other builders by building the client’s dream, not the builder’s. The Starr® team initiates a custom approach from the outset, considering everything from design and materials to site consideration and funding, all planned in advance with your needs in mind. After all, your new home should be the template for the lifestyle you’ve always wanted for you and your family.
The team at Starr® Custom Homes brings together all the elements needed to bring your inspiration to life: exceptional design, strong experience and, most importantly, you – at the center of it all. You’ve dreamed it, now live it®.
