     There simply isn't anything like the overall satisfying feeling of pure comfort and security that comes with the purchase of a new home. Having your own home positively affects your day to day lifestyle while providing the perfect opportunity to express personal taste and individuality. When purchasing a new home, you are making a statement about who you are - something unique that you create to call your own. Buying a new home is more than just having a place to live. It's about building dreams and memories that will last a lifetime. 
     Our goal at D&F is to offer a home plan to fit your lifestyle while incorporating the most current techniques, first class features and top of the line components, and energy efficiency into every home we build. Our mission has always been to achieve the highest customer satisfaction possible by providing the utmost degree of service in the custom home building industry. After all, we realize that building a new home is most likely the single largest investment that you will make.
     At D&F, we pride ourselves in our ability to meet and exceed our clients' expectations during and after the entire home building process. We have a vast portfolio of home plans for you to choose from, or feel free to tailor a custom plan to better accommodate your needs and tastes. Our team of professionals will work closely with you to assure that the custom home we build for you is everything that you dreamed it would be. We ensure that every home we build meets your goals in terms of your own personal style, outstanding architectural design, state-of-the-art features and that it all fits within your budget parameters. We look forward to building your next home!​​​
