Testimonials

My wife and I had Andy Holmes glass in our screen porch. Andy came and sit down with us and listened to what we wanted , made a few suggestions because of constructional concerns and was back with us in a few days with a drawn plan and an estimated budget. We could not have more pleased; we were so pleased that before Andy had finished the porch we had him redo the garage, put on a new roof, and new gutters all around the house.


All of Andy’s workers were very professional, always came they were suppose to, and always on time. We got to know most of the guys by their first names. Andy checked on out progress almost every day and when he couldn’t he was just a phone call away. We changed our minds a few times throughout the process and Andy was always accommodating.


When the projects were finished, we again sat down with Andy to go over the final figures. He was within a few dollars of the original estimate (not counting the add-ons of course). He told us that he would check back with us in a few months and fix any concerns we had and for us to call if needed before he returned. Andy Holmes is without a doubt the best person you could get to do your construction work.

Andy Holmes is doing something different in home building and people are noticing. It’s almost like being on one of those television shows where the finished design blows the home owner away. I felt like I was on one of those shows with Andy. The only difference was I never saw a camera crews, rather work crews who understood the timeline and the budget.


If you want to have one of those “blown away” moments like people experience on television – do what I did. Call Andy Holmes.

My wife and I are thoroughly enjoying the screened-in back porch that Holmes by Design built for us almost two years ago. We have been able to spend time on the porch for about ten months out of the year. We particularly enjoy some of the features that they suggested that we incorporatedinto the design of the porch. For instance, the vaulted ceiling that gives us more light and airflow than what we were originally envisioning, as well as the screen system they suggested - that has worked out extremely well. Also, we enjoy the gas fireplace because it extends the time that we can spend on the porch during some of the colder months of the year. And best of all, your estimate for the project was something we thought we could afford - and the total project actually came in below budget, so that was an additional thing to celebrate. We are thankful for your great ideas, your professionalism, and the care and skill that you put into our porch - it has enhanced our outdoor living experience.

We just wanted to say thank you to all of you for each of the parts you have played in the build of our dream home. We are so fortunate to have had such a wonderful team helping us through this process. We have heard horror stories of other builders and we are so glad we don't have one to tell! We are still working through the last few things at the house but all in all it has been a great experience! We hope we didn't drive you guys too crazy along the way.

Thanks so much for the gift basket and the Batey's farm frozen food. We love the neighborhood already! God had a plan for us to meet Holmes by Design at the right time and for him to show us this perfect lot in the perfect location and he happened to still be working for the best home builders. Everything came together just as He always promises it will. We will definitely be recommending you guys for remodels and new builds whenever we get the chance (be on the lookout for my Mom - Kathy Stevens - she wants a remodel).

Building a forever home is a very personal endeavor.  My husband and I did not want to work with just any builder.  We had worked with Andy on our first house when he was still with Ole South.  He was the project manager for that house, and we really enjoyed working with him.  So when we found out he had started his own company we called him immediately! 


Andy not only brings a vast knowledge base about constructing a house, he also brings an artistic touch to every aspect of the house making it an unbelievable home.  He was able to listen to every ‘hair-brained’ idea we had and mold it into this amazing house that I get to come home to everyday (I’m still pinching myself). 


In our first meeting we met the team at Holmes by Design.  At first I was not convinced that a team could do what I had in mind.  I thought they would not see the vision.  I was totally wrong!  Johnny is a very hands-on project manager.  He has been with us every step of the way, making sure that we are comfortable and the subs have done what they were tasked to do.  Laura, there are no words to describe how much she means to my husband and I.  She has gone out of her way to keep us up to date on everything and her checklists are awesome!  Doug was on the ball from the start with our budget and keeping us on track.  There is not one person on this team that out shines the others, but this team outshines any other team out there!  There is absolutely no way we would every build or renovate anything without calling Holmes by Design!

5 Questions to Ask When Deciding Between Remodeling and Building

5 Questions to Ask When Deciding Between Remodeling and Building

If you’ve been living in a home for several years or have recently had your kids move out of the home, you may be starting to think about what home you’ll want to settle down in. Do you think the home you are currently living in is the home you want to stay in forever? If it’s not, what would you change? Since remodeling can end up costing just as much as building, you’ll want to be certain you make the right choice with the right reasons in mind. Is it the location you don’t like? Or is it just the fact your bathroom is too small and your kitchen doesn’t have enough counter space? Here are 5 questions to get you started on the debate between fixing up the home you live in or starting from scratch to build a home that 100 percent matches your taste and lifestyle.

Are the Bones of the House Good?

If you’re going to remodel, you need to love the structure of the house. If anything about the bones of your house bothers you, building should be the way you go, unless a remodeler tells you they can fix whatever aspect you don’t like. The structure of your home also needs to be in good enough condition to bother updating. If you feel like your house is about to fall down on a day that’s too windy, you might not want to invest money into it that could be spent on building a structurally sound home. Also look at the structure to determine if the additions you want can be added to the house you have. Some renovating projects aren’t possible without taking too much of the existing foundation apart.

Do You Want to Live During a Renovation?

Most people don’t think about the inconveniences of having a home renovated. If you’ve ever lived through having your roof replaced or even exterminators coming inside to spray, imagine that annoyance and inconvenience times a lot. You’ll have to deal with months of dust and disruption and could even go weeks without parts of your home such as a kitchen sink.

Is Your Location Nice?

One of the benefits to building is that you get to choose your location. But what if you already have a decent home in a great location? Unless your neighborhood has available building lots, you may like remodeling your home better. Especially if you would be leaving close friends and a perfect proximity to your main places such as work or the grocery store.

Do You Have Emotional Attachments to Your House?

Especially if you have lived somewhere for at least ten years or have watched your children grow up in a house, it can be difficult to say goodbye to those floors where your baby learned to crawl and those walls where your toddlers scribbled. If you have too many good memories soaked into your current home, you’re better off fixing up what you don’t like about the place than uprooting and starting over.

Is it Financially Smart?

Already, renovating a home can end up costing just as much as building. But you definitely don’t want renovating to cost more. You have to ask yourself if renovating makes sense for your home’s value. If you plan to move in a few years, renovating wouldn’t be a wise choice. You also have to consider the values of other properties in your neighborhood. If they are rising, you should skip the renovations and find a place to build.

If you’re still unsure between remodeling or building your home, contact Holmes by Design today. We will be more than happy to discuss your options and help you weigh out the pros and cons to get you started on the path to a home that works for you.
