Dream It

Plans to fit your lifestyle

Browse our floor plan gallery to find the plan that best fits you and your family! We’ve been building and refining these plans for years, so there’s no question you’ll find something that fits what you’ve been looking for!

With our Interactive Floor Plan Designer® you have the ability to make some minor modifications to your home! These changes are based off of the most popular features from past projects.

Build on your lot

Do you already own your building lot? Let’s go visit your site together. We will discuss the lot dimensions, project orientation, lot terrain, views, easements, etc. Let’s make sure we think through all of our options on your lot to maximize all of its characteristics.

Still on the hunt

If you don’t yet own your own building lot, we are here to walk you through this fun and exciting process! We have connections all over the state to help you find the right lot for you.

Cul-de-sac lots perfect for little kids. Ask us about our current lot inventory. We might already have the perfect lot for you

Build It

Price Per Square Foot

The first question that people always love to ask? What is the cost per square foot to build? This is much like calling your favorite steak house and asking the question, “How much is it for a piece of meat?” The answer is, it depends. It depends on the overall size of the home. It depends on the types of finishes. It depends on the subdivision building requirements. It depends on the available city services. It depends on a lot! After discussions regarding your specific lot, floor plan and desired finishes, we can prepare a very detailed cost estimate that is guaranteed to be a competitive and fair price.

Preliminary Budget

We like to know right up front what your target budget is for your new home so we can guide you through our process. Our goal is to educate our Owners on today’s construction costs and help place the focus on those items that are truly the most important features of their home.

Fixed Price Contract

This means exactly what it implies. The price you see is the price you get. Dialed in right up front to avoid any surprises. Your initial base contract price is guaranteed to remain the same, no matter what.


When it comes to shopping for the fun stuff like flooring, counters, fixtures and appliances the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. To help keep the process as stress free as possible, you’ll have our professional, in-house design team by your side the whole time. We have curated a wide variety of finishes and materials that are in-budget, as well as some upgraded options to create your beautiful home. Know right away what our upgrades are so there are no surprises after selection week!

Real-Time Pricing

With the convenience of our online building Program, we are able to keep track of all of your requested changes in real time. Your requested changes and upgrades throughout construction will never get away from you. Login at any time to get the most recent totals of your requested change orders and see how they are reflected in your overall final contract price. No need to cross your fingers at the end of construction and hope for the best.

Who’s Paying for It?

Highland Homes offers years of experience working with countless banks and lenders regarding construction financing. With a quick discussion regarding your financial goals on your new home, we can provide direction for the perfect financing scenario.

Owner Financing

This is the most common option and will allow you to carry the construction loan in your name throughout the build process. A huge bonus is the ability to lock in your low interest rate at the beginning of the build rather than hoping rates are good at the end of construction. You can also save on some overall closing costs. Highland will still handle everything when it comes to draws, appraisals and bank inspections.

Builder Financing

For the rare occasion when owner financing isn’t possible, we offer builder construction financing for your home. Deposits and down payments are all specific to your project and, at the end of construction, you simply purchase the home using your own permanent financing. Use your own lender or ask to speak to one of our lenders experienced in new construction financing.


Our #1 priority throughout the build process is communication. We have found over the years that an informed homeowner usually makes for a happy homeowner. The build process is filled with schedules, budgets, selections and more. Remember, this build process can and should be fun and exciting. Our online building program is designed to keep our buyers informed as to every selection, budget and scheduling item throughout construction. Check out our online program. No surprises means you can enjoy the exciting build process without the stresses of unfamiliarity and uncertainty.

Pre-Construction Meeting

Before we ever break ground we sit down and answer any questions you may have about the upcoming project. We will go over construction schedules, important dates and selection procedures. Most importantly, we will introduce you to your own online building program that will be your best and most useful tool over the coming months of the build project. You will love it!


Take advantage of the opportunity to work with one of the finest interior design teams in the business. You will get to make almost all selections in our state of the art design center. From flooring, to paint, cabinets, and fixtures, you will get to see your home come to life! Our designers will walk you through the process and make sure it all blends for the perfect look! 

Onsite Visits

As construction progresses, we will schedule onsite meetings to discuss the specifics of outlet and switch locations, trim carpentry details, and any other questions you have about your project! 

Final Orientation and Walk-through

Prior to closing we will schedule a final walkthrough. Your home will have already been through multiple, rigorous final inspections in preparation for closing. We take this opportunity to provide orientation and training with respect to your beautiful new home. We want the home to be the beautiful, perfect home that you always dreamed of.
