Thank You for considering Taylor Homes!


Testimonial from one of MANY Happy Homeowners!

“….I was so comfortable with the process. Picked out everything for the home I wanted to build, and started building in December of all times…in 4-1/2 months it was built to spec and changed little
things along the way and still came below budget. WOW! I am amazed how easy this was and how great everything is; I don’t feel like this was a business transaction at all, it was more like I got invited into the Taylor Homes family!…
….Here is the topping of the cake, my house appraised for more than I paid for it, instant equity!! Who can say that when they build a house – very few people!
Thank you so much for letting me be a part of the Taylor Homes family. You will always get my business if I ever sell but doubt I would, I love my home!” S. Thomas
