Why Choose Andrew G Construction to build your custom home?

With the Andrew G Construction team, you get an experienced team that truly cares about how smooth your home build project goes. This will make all of the difference both when planning your home and when enjoying it decades from now. We work hard to create the home of your dreams within the budget you have.

This helps us to keep projects on time and on budget for the homeowner. We want you to enjoy your home for years to come.

We care about:

  • Analysis of costs: Dream homes come with a price tag, and it is important to know what that price tag is before you start building. We give you a full analysis of your costs so that you know where you’re spending your money. And, if you want to change priorities and spend more or less in some areas, we can help.
  • Ongoing communication: You deserve to know exactly what is going on with your project and you shouldn’t have to ask. We keep you updated with the relevant details of how your project is going, so that you don’t stress about it or feel like you’re out of the loop about your own custom home build.
  • Honest scheduling: We know that you want your home built as soon as possible, but we don’t mislead you about when we’re available or how long the project will take. You’ll get a precise schedule, and we’ll stick to it. Your home will be completed in a reasonable time frame, and you’ll know when that is.
  • Exceptional quality: In the end, you want your home to be enjoyed for many decades and to remain functional and stylish for as long as possible. We care about all of the little details that will make your home more durable and well-built.

Kitchens often end up being a gathering place.  There are many different options to consider:

  • Galley Kitchens: A galley kitchen, or corridor kitchen, is characterized by two parallel countertops or walls divided by a three-to-five-foot walking area in between.  The most common galley kitchen features include twin workstations facing each other, one wall with cooking appliances, and a second equipped with prep and cleaning fixtures.
  • Island Kitchens: A kitchen with an island also has options.  Islands can be stationary or moveable.  They can provide extra seating, storage, or counterspace.  They can have butcherblock counters, tile counters, granite counters, as well as other materials.  Some are even utilized for the cooktop.
  • Peninsula Kitchen: Similar to the island kitchen, a peninsula is one that incorporates a counter that juts out from a wall or cabinetry.  Many offer seating and extra cabinetry.
  • Open Kitchen:  An open kitchen is usually more L-shaped or U-shaped.  It has a more open feel to it.

The floorplan for your custom home will involve how you set up your kitchen and what type of functionality you want it to have. 

Other kitchen considerations include:

  • Flooring
  • Countertops
  • Appliances
  • Paint
  • Tile
  • Cabinetry
  • Lighting
  • Fixtures
  • Hardware

Our team is here to guide you through all of these decisions. We will help you navigate your needs and the style that will work best for you and your family. After all, it is the heartbeat of your home and it should be comfortable space.


Aside from the number of bathrooms needed in your home, there are other considerations as well.  It’s important to make decisions about how to maximize function and the layout of the design before worrying about the little details.  You need to think about how the room will function and flow in your design.  

Some things to consider:

  • Low flow toilet
  • Shower style
  • Bathtub/claw tub
  • Single or double sink
  • Built in nooks
  • Storage
  • Windows for natural lighting
  • Types of countertops
  • Types of flooring
  • Radiant flooring
  • Tile
  • Paint
  • And more


Bathroom Reference

Your Andrew G team will help you with all these decisions. They will help you decide if and where windows should go to let in natural lighting. They will also help you make decisions about other types of lighting you might need. They will guide you in deciding if painting, wood, or tiling would be best with your plan. You will need to decide the type of storage options you’d like in your bathroom. Whether you’d like a stand alone tub or a tub and shower combination. Whether a glass surround works or another option. There are many choices and decisions to be made before you even consider the fixtures and hardware that you’d like. In the end, we will guide you and help you create the bathroom with the amenities you dream about.

Additional Considerations

What is your idea of your dream home?  What rooms does it have?  What elements do you want to see?  We want to make your dreams come true.  We know there might be constraints, but let’s see what we can make happen to create a home you will enjoy for years to come.

Do you want a lot of open space or a cozy feel to your home?  We will create the space you are hoping for in your dream home.  We believe it can be functional and beautiful.
