Should you remodel or build new?

Many homeowners residing in luxury communities often find themselves pondering whether to remodel or rebuild their homes. To find the answer, evaluating your project can be of great help.

However, remodeling a home can be a daunting task that requires a lot of consideration. There are several factors to consider, including where to start, budget, style, design, location, and regulations, including those imposed by homeowner associations and city or state governments.

Homeowners may also be curious about whether they can find a reliable Sioux Falls home builder to take full responsibility for the entire project or if they should form a team themselves. Choosing the right professionals to assist you is essential. All these questions and concerns are valid, and Deffenbaugh Homes is here to help address all of them. We want to help you make the best decision for your home and turn it into your dream home.

Deffenbaugh Homes builds custom homes and remodels luxury homes and is honored to be ranked #1 on Houzz.com in Sioux Falls and the surrounding area. The Deffenbaugh Homes design team will create plans for an inspired residence.

Deffenbaugh Homes understands that you want your own special place that reflects your style and taste. Our process, “The 5 Simple Steps”™ was created as a system based on the collaborative model that allows you to describe what you want, the design team draws it, you approve it, and Deffenbaugh Homes builds it, on time, and on budget.

Our Process

1 Getting to Know You

During this step, our in-house design/build team will meet with you to discuss your requirements, preferences, concerns, and priorities for the project. Our aim is to gain a comprehensive understanding of you and your lifestyle to develop a tailored approach. We will also consider your budget to determine a scope that is feasible within your resources.

Our Process

2 Land Acquisition

We use our long-standing relationships with local real estate professionals to help you find the perfect lot and then be there to ensure the site is ideal for your needs. To confirm that your desired project is feasible we’ll do everything from bringing in soil and pool engineers and flying a drone to validate the views to reviewing city restrictions and much more.

Our Process

3 Design

We are the leading custom home builder in Sioux Falls and we have an exceptional in-house architectural design team. Our design/build team will create three conceptual 3D models that perfectly match all of your desired functions, design, and cost parameters. You can then mix and match specific variations from each to create your dream home.

Our Process

4 Specifications Development

When it comes to building a new home, paying close attention to even the smallest details can make all the difference between an ordinary construction and an extraordinary one. Our team of Project Managers takes great care in documenting every aspect of the project specifications, including plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, finish carpentry, paint colors, and more. We then provide an estimated cost for your project based on these details.

Our Process

5 The Build

One of the many advantages of working with a general contractor that has a large full-time staff is that it’s not just “one person trying to do everything.” Our Operations Manager will coordinate all of our subcontractors and Deffenbaugh staff; the Selections Coordinator will help guide you through all of your specifications selections and ordering process and our Customer Success Coordinator will be sure all of your questions are answered and guide you through the construction process.
