Will you build from plans out of a plan book or from an online database?
This depends. We feel that a home needs to be site-specific, properly designed and engineered around our homeowners’ vision. However, looking through online databases or plan books is a good place to start for ideas. We can take plans out of a plan book and “re-design” the plan to compliment our homeowners’ vision and adhere to local building codes.

Absolutely. This is one of your biggest investments. We welcome your ideas and input throughout the construction process, and we remain flexible and willing to accommodate your wants.

We own our home site, but don’t have architectural drawings. Will you work with us?
Absolutely, in fact many homeowners purchase their home site prior to contacting a builder or architect.

Yes. Since we are custom home builders we do not currently build pre-designed homes. However, Westharbor Homes is owned by the developers of The Resort At Port Ludlow and does have access to lot inventory owned by the developer. Many of these lots were designed or are suitable for custom homes.

Will you work with my Real Estate Broker while we search for a home site?
