Our Process Guides You to a Successful Custom Home


From the first time we communicate, Statera will take the time to understand your life and evaluate your goals, needs and budget. We will hear you and take the fear out of designing a new home. We will partner with you to translate your vision into an agreement to build your home.


Together we begin to plan your new space.  Step-by-step, our process will guide you toward a final design.  We tailor this process for your level of comfort- as much or as little customization as needed to realize your vision.  During this step, we will coordinate the financial aspects of your new home with a trusted lender (if necessary).


With final plans, choices made, permits obtained, and financing secured, we make your space a reality. We use local craftsman, our experience, and attention to detail to create your new home- one we’re all proud of. Our process allows for great communication and checkpoints to ensure our your vision is realized.

Statera’s promise to build your vision doesn’t end once your home is completed.  You will have peace of mind knowing that we stand behind everything that goes into your new home.  We want to build your dream home; our customers become our friends and neighbors.  We value long-term relationships.  We are passionate about building custom homes.  We care about your experience.

Lower Energy Bills.

You probably already know that a new home can provide substantial energy cost savings versus a used home.

The typical Statera Home can be 50% more efficient than a used home.

Our homes are typically about 20% more efficient than required by local building codes.

Each Statera home is tested and verified by a third-party inspector for its performance and its energy efficient features.  When you visit us, we’d be happy to explain the incredible efficiency of your Statera Home.

*Based upon Sussex County, Delaware building code.  Our features are customized for you, so our energy ratings can vary.

You Deserve a Craft-Built Home

Quality materials from brands you trust to create a craft-built new home.  We source locally whenever possible to benefit the local economy and the planet.
