Family Style
Different by Design

Have you ever walked into a house and just knew ... knew that this was the place that you wanted to call home? At Family Development, we know this feeling does not happen by accident – it is the direct result of a home’s great design.

In today’s world of quick production, we feel too many builders have lost this special touch. Most claim to strive for quality, but when it comes to design, their homes have become rather uniform and bland. We hope you agree that a home designed by Family Development is different… and the difference is by design.

Family Values

The market is the ultimate authority and they have spoken loudly - design does make a difference.

Family Development’s hands-on approach to homebuilding has allowed the company to design and offer homes and communities of enduring value. Evidence of the value of the Principals’ intelligent planning and positioning can be found in the fact that homes designed by Family Development have sold for more than their similarly sized competitors. This same price premium has been found when the homes are sold in the resale market as well. Of course, there are no guarantees in the market, but it pays to go with a proven winner and Family Development has won some of the industry’s most prestigious design awards. Read more >
