8 Critical Soil Factors Before Building Your Home

But even before the foundation is poured, it is important to understand the soil and site factors that will help determine any limitations that need to be mitigated on a planned homesite.

DESIGN TREND: Custom Backsplash

 Most homeowners, whether building a new home or renovating, have the most fun making selections for their kitchens and bathrooms. These days, backsplashes seem to be getting a lot of attention. With styles in every budget and taste, backsplashes in the bathroom and kitchen are a way to display personality and set the tone for the entire home.  

Dressing Up the Lower Level

Getting a referral is always a thrill for DH Custom Homes. It’s what we live for. But receiving a referral for additional work on an existing DH home? Even better. Recently, our family was called back out to a customized Durham ranch home to finish the lower level – a 1,180 sq. ft. space which now includes a media room, playroom, guest bedroom with walk-in closet and Jack-and-Jill bath with access from the bedroom and hall.

Vinyl Flooring provides the Look without the Price


For a time, sheet vinyl with its trite, frilly patterns had become a product to be avoided in the interior design world. Design trends have changed though and sheet vinyl flooring styles have improved by leaps and bounds. It’s once again become a great alternative to higher-priced materials for both remodeling projects and new, luxury custom homes!

See how our homeowners incorporated this cost-effective option into their home - without sacrificing a polished look!


Kirkwood Custom Home Update – Foundation Poured!

Construction is now well underway at one of our newest luxury custom homes on Homewood Drive in Kirkwood, Missouri. This 1-1/2 story home was uniquely designed for the homeowners.

We’re back this month to bring you an update as we move forward with construction!

Exciting Upgrades for an In-Grade Basement

Just because you have an in-grade basement doesn’t mean you can’t have a luxurious finished lower level filled with natural light and an exterior view. A recent renovation on a local home includes features to bring many upgrades to an in-grade basement.

One Plan, Two Distinct Homes

We recently had the pleasure of having two custom Greenbriar homes under construction at the same time, but the most exciting aspect has been how dramatically different the homes have turned out. Check out our most recently completed Greenbriar and the incredible custom family kitchen and master bath!
