When you visit our homes, talk to us about your unique needs such as finding the perfect lot and creating one-of-a-kind designs. Our model or spec homes are great for seeing the quality of DP Homes construction, and attention to detail. Keep in mind, your home may look completely different, we build a variety of different styles. Working with our designers, you can customize every detail, from the floorplan to the faucets. It’s all custom, from the lot to the landscaping.
