HPG-20002-1 – The Forrest Wood
In the fall of 2007 we were expecting our second daughter due in February 2008.
We absolutely love the area and neighborhood we are in and had heard from a neighbor that the lot directly across the street was going to possibly be up for sale in the near future.
We didn’t think much about it, we loved our house and it was suiting us just fine as we were, but we knew when the new baby came we would certainly like to have more space.
In January of 2008, the new baby girl was born and we thought we would start looking into the prospect of building in the coming fall. Unfortunately we all know 2008 did not end on a high note for the economy and more specifically the housing market. We decided it would be in our best interest to keep our land but look into building within 5 or so years. Then came 2010.
I received a phone call from a friend of a friend. She told me she grew up in the house next door to us and really liked our neighborhood. She said she was told by our mutual friend we owned the land across the street and was curious if we had plans to build.
I told her we hoped to one day, but weren’t looking into anything too seriously at that point because houses were still not really selling at that time. She asked me if we would consider selling our home as they were very interested in living in the neighborhood and there were no other homes for sale at the time. I told her, with the right price, just about anything is for sale. Needless to say that went off without a hitch and we were off to live with my mom and begin our dream of building.
We bought books and surfed the web day after day looking for house plans. We kept coming back to this one plan. It was in a couple of the books we looked at and on almost every website we looked at. We finally decided this was our house. It just needed a couple of modifications that would really make it ours. And then came House Plan Gallery.
They responded to my email and asked me to describe in detail all of the modifications I wanted. They let me know I would be hearing from someone within a few days. But it wasn’t a few days… It was one day!
We further discussed the modifications and House Plan Gallery emailed me the cost and a sketch within the next day. It was absolutely PERFECT. It’s very clear why our choice was House Plan Gallery .
They take customer service to the extreme to ensure 100% satisfaction. I even received a call later after ordering asking how construction was going and just a simple hello and thank us for our order. Not many companies follow up quite like this anymore. I’m without a doubt a fan of the entire House Plan Gallery family.
We are so very pleased with our home and would not hesitate to recommend or even use them again in the future. Thank you House Plan Gallery for making our dream home a reality!
