We focus on the little things

The defining touch of a Mongold home is our attention to details. Right from the start, your new home is closely watched to make sure it is not only built to the highest standards, but exactly the home you want.

This attention shows in the finish! We invite you to walk through any one of our homes and compare these details to other houses in the area. A full-time Color Specialist will be on staff to assist with all of your decor decisions and a full-time Construction Supervisor will be on site for the supervision of construction and quality workmanship. Here is a list of some of the additional details included in each of our custom home builds.
