Delaware New Homes: Creating a Unique Space

So let me start off with a story about building a Delaware new home.

Just this year, a Realtor friend of mine was working with a client who ended up buying a new home with a large builder here in Delaware.  Her client was so excited- new home, great location, great price.  The builder had a very systematic process for how it built Delaware new homes.  They quickly made their selections, lined up their financing, and in very short order they were sitting in a pre-construction meeting.  They met a production supervisor at that meeting, and he explained the entire process to them.

At some point in the meeting, they told the builder that they wanted to add a screened porch to the house.  They knew it would be an additional cost, but they wanted to have some outdoor living space.

Keep in mind that the house wasn’t started.  This is pre-construction.

The builder said “no”.  Adding a screened porch didn’t fit in their process, so they said no to the client.

My friend’s client was crushed.

So the client’s life didn’t fit the builder’s process.

We think this is no way to build Delaware new homes for people- why?  Because the house is for the people.

A screened porch is a big deal- a gathering place, a place of quiet morning contemplation, afternoon naps, and dinner parties.  Isn’t a new home supposed to create unique spaces for these life events?  Isn’t a new home supposed to be for living?

So the client’s life didn’t fit the builder’s process.

A builder’s process shouldn’t get in the way of your life.  That’s why I founded Statera- so we could create unique, craf- built Delaware new homes designed around the lives of the people who own them.

You’ll hear two things at Statera- we create craft built homes, and we create Delaware new homes that are unique like you.

Craft built- what does this mean?  This means that we focus on the craftsmanship of our homes.  Most builder focus on process- how to make the process of building a new home more efficient and cost-effective.  We focus on craftsmanship.  This focus starts when you first contact us, and it continues until long after you move in.  We are going to make sure your new is built to last with materials and finishes that will last and create value in your new home.  We focus on using local vendors and contractors to build our homes.  We care about how our materials are sourced.  We create very efficient homes to reduce their environmental impact.

For some people, these things don’t matter.  If you just want a house at the lowest possible price, then Statera isn’t going to be the right fit for you.  But if you understand that value and price are two different things, then keep watching.

So we take pride in our craft built Delaware new homes, and we build them unique like you.  Have you ever walked the streets in Manhattan?  I am always amazed at the incredible variety of people on the streets, in the coffee shops, or riding the subway.  Somehow, all these incredibly different people find something in the city that fits who they are.  At Statera, we are going to build the new home that fits who you are.  Some builders don’t really offer choice- you get what they give you.  Some people are okay with that, but if you’re a person who has always want to build a unique new home, then Statera is for you.  Even if you’re not sure exactly what that looks like- we will take the time to understand you, and we will take the time to shape a new home that fits you.

At Statera, you’re not a production unit, and your home is not a product for our process.  You are unique.  Your home should reflect who you are.  Your home should enable and enhance the life you want to live.  Sometimes last minute decisions, like adding a screened porch, are the best decisions.  We embrace building unique, craft-built homes for people who care, and we support last-minute screen porch additions.

If a craft-built, unique Delaware new home is something that fits who you are, then we look forward to hearing from you.  Our homes are not for everyone, but you aren’t everyone- you are unique and valuable.  It’s time to build a home that reflects who you are.
