Different By Design

"There are many parallels between family and home, they both require a solid foundation and are built with unconditional love, commitment and passion"

–V. Barbato

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 that 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 that 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.

For the past 25 years, our efforts have been concentrated in the desert communities of Southern California and now Arizona. We are proud to be a local company who understands how our homeowners live and define value. This first-hand knowledge allows us to design homes specifically for the desert lifestyle.

Home designs that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living, master bedrooms that provide a real sanctuary, secondary bedrooms that can easily accommodate out-of-town guests or a multitude of other uses, courtyards that are meaningful living spaces not just extra-wide walkways; these are just a few of the many special nuances that you will find designed into our homes.

A home’s design should go well beyond just its four walls and roof. Simply put, we believe that your home should be designed to live the way you live – not the other way around. No one should have to settle for plain when they can have spectacular. When you walk into one of our homes, we look forward to hearing you say, “Yes, home at last!”

"We feel our commitment to family is what makes us unique and sets us apart. So, no matter how you define family, we welcome you and yours to ours"
