I don't know about you- but we are always up for sprucing up the exterior of our homes! Houzz has always been a great source for our customers to get design ideas on their new homes. There is rarely a week that goes by where we do not have someone show us a pictures from their ideabook that they have created for inspiration on building their new home. What some people might not know is Houzz is also a great resource for all things around your home including organizing, decorating, exterior landscape ideas and more. Check out this great article they posted on "14 Colorful Spring Containers to Cheer Up Your Porch or Garden."
You have picked everything out so the fun can now begin! Meet our Construction Team. It is time to turn over the floor plans and selections to this group. Their job is to take all those ideas and selections you made and bring them to life.
Before we break ground on the project, you will have a Pre-Construction Meeting at our office where you will meet your Construction Superintendent. This is a opportunity for them to be introduced to you as a homeowner as well as your floor plans and selections. They will be briefed on all the details of the home so they have a clear vision of what you are wanting. From this point on they will become part of your family! They will be one of the main sources of contact throughout your build. Their job is to schedule all the trades, get inspections and make sure everything is followed on the plans. They are also the eyes of the company to make sure not only all your selections are fulfilled but everything behind the walls are built soundly and energy efficiently.
During the build of your home, Landmark Fine Homes will schedule several meeting on your jobsite. This gives us the opportunity to educate you on what is behind the walls and get feedback from you on how you want certain areas of your home to look like.
You are getting close to moving into your new home. Only a few more steps and it will be complete. Check back in next week to see what's next!
You have picked your community, floor plan and signed your contract, so now what?
Next up is picking out all the finishes you would like in your home as well as going over the floor plans to make sure all the details are there. We love greeting new home owners when they walk into our design studio for the first time. Honestly, we see a mix of emotions. Some can not wait to get started on this part. They have been on Pinterest, Houzz or other websites collecting pictures and information of what all they want in their new home. The other set of people walk in looking like a deer in head lights!! The thought of having to pick everything out and making sure it all matches is overwhelming for some. In comes our wonderful team to save the day!!
Landmark Fine Homes believes that we build your home not ours. With that being said, we want to make sure we have all the details in place that you want in your home. There are several meetings scheduled throughout the process of building your home. In the beginning you will come in for a Plan Review Meeting. This is where you will meet with our Estimating Department to make sure we have everything on your plans that you envisioned down to where the light switches are. Then we transition you into meeting with our Design Team. This is where you get to take all those ideas of finishes out of your head and bring them to life! The team does a great job at taking those ideas and matching them to products. During your home building process you will have one designer that is committed to making your home something that you will be proud to show off. Landmark Fine Homes also works hard at not making the process overwhelming. You will have several meetings with our design team where you can focus on certain areas of the home and not feel like you have to make decisions on every facet of the home in one visit.
Now, doesn't that sound easy and fun? It really is! Check out what this family had to say about the process!
We don't know about you but around here it has been HOT!!! With temperatures in the high 90's and low 100's for the last several weeks everyone is looking for a place to cool off. If you live in one of Landmark Fine Homes communities that offer a community pool- you are in luck!! The pool has been a place where the community has been gathering to relax after a long day at work.
If you don't have a community pool to get wet in at the end of the day, be sure and take care of the air conditioner inside your home. Here are a few tips to make sure it keeps running at its best!

It was a pleasure working with Suzzanne Wolfe in the purchase our Landmark home. From the moment we walked into the model home in March 2014, she was cordial, friendly and extremely helpful explaining to us what made Landmark homes different and more importantly, better than other homes we had seen to that point. She was always responsive to our questions, concerns and went the extra mile to accommodate our needs for finding a great home for our move to OKC.
We moved to Oklahoma in June. When we discovered that the temporary rental home we were to move into that day was unacceptable, Suzzanne went above and beyond to help us find another suitable rental home until the Landmark home we purchased was ready for us to move in. She ensured the travel time from the rental home to Tinker AFB where Tony works was consistent with travel time we would have in the Edmond home...it is that attention to detail that we love about Suzzanne (it is most uncommon, but very much appreciated!) She provided support in our hour of need and we will never forget that support...EVER!
Evan Thomas was superb going through our final walkthrough ensuring any issues identified were properly annotated and marked and most importantly worked so that when we moved in all issues had be fixed. Means a lot to us as customers that he made sure our home was inspection ready for move in. He also went the extra mile in our functional review of the home making sure he answered all of our questions on the operation of the systems that are in the house. He did the little things like turning on the oven to burn off the factory newness so that when we used it the first time we did not stink up the house! He did not have to do that, but he did it because he is Evan and that is how he operates! We look forward to our subsequent walkthroughs, because we know he cares deeply about what he does and we know he'll take care of any issues we may discover since our move in.
We closed on our new house in December and we are very happy. We love the quality of our Landmark home. That is what drew our interest from the beginning.
Tony and Jennifer
We love hearing from our customers! Thank you Tony & Jennifer!
