Got questions? Hansman Custom Homes in Columbia, Mo has answers.

Building a new home can be stressful and confusing. Hansman Custom Homes hopes to make the new build process full of excitement without the hassle or stress. We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about finding a lot, new build timelines, new build costs, how to choose a floor plan, new build warranties and choosing materials and finishes.

If you don’t already own a lot, we will help you find the right lot at the right price. We will discuss the specific location of the lot within the subdivision, any potential grading or drainage issues, the optimum placement of your home on the lot and any other considerations. Once we have found the right lot, Hansman Custom Homes will purchase the lot for you. This will save you time and money because you will be able to close on the lot and the home at completion of construction with no need for two separate loans.

Hansman Custom Homes has a number of plans to choose from if you don’t already have a floor plan. We are willing and able to make changes to any house plan to make it fit your personal needs. If you already have a plan in mind, whether it’s a sketch you made, a draft from the internet/magazine, or a complete blueprint, we can help you decide how it can be changed to suit you.
