Vision Views For Home Inspiration

Categories: San Antonio Custom Homebuilding | Posted: February 1, 2019

custom home designWhether you’re settled into your home, just purchased one, or are still in the design process, Weston Dean has plenty of inspirational directions to take your vision to new heights. Our Vision Views page provides customers and homeowners alike with design, decorating, and remodeling ideas for their San Antonio home. We’ve broken down each style category below to provide you with plenty of ways to conceptualize how each could fit with your home or home-to-be.

Traditional style homes are thoughtfully constructed with floor plans allowing for modern living, but without modern-looking design features. This style is highlighted by large windows with full plate glass, horizontal wood siding or brick, flat and/or metal roofs, and clean lines throughout. Think of colonial homes when you think of Traditional style influences. Pillars on the front of the house are a great addition and crown molding sets off the feel of a Traditional home.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Hill Country Contemporary style blends clean lines with rustic materials. Also known as Texas regional, this type of design often features exposed beams, stone, earth, and stucco accents, regional materials, and low pitch metal roofs with an overall emphasis on making contemporary features out of local, rustic provisions. Hill Country Contemporary homes tend to have open floor plans, vaulted ceilings, and clean, square lines.

Texas Country style is slightly less sophisticated than Hill Country Contemporary but makes up for it in charm. This type of home tends to have more wooden features on the outside of the home while still incorporating plenty of natural wood and stone materials on the interior. General characteristics such as stone or wood interiors and low pitch metal or composition roofs help set off a modern country feel.

Spanish Revival style architecture has become increasingly popular in San Antonio, and Weston Dean is no stranger to this type of design. General features like thick walls, recessed windows, exposed beams, red barrel roof tiling, and more are highlighted by details such as arches, stucco walls and exteriors, terracotta tile, rich fabrics and woodwork, and wrought iron railings and fixtures. This type of home is easy to visualize: think of a hacienda-style property with tans and reds as the major color palette and plenty of rich fabrics, detailed tiles, cozy rooms, and archways.

European architecture is known for very high pitched, steep roofs, divided pane windows, slate roofs, hinged French doors leading to balconies or patios, rounded entryway towers topped with cone-shaped roofs, and masonry exteriors. Tudor homes exhibit several of the qualities of Weston Dean’s European style homes. During the last 100 years, American architecture has enjoyed a renaissance of European style homes and features, particularly in Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston.

If you’re simply looking to upgrade what you currently have or make a few tweaks to your home, Weston Dean offers many, many ways to customize your place. Kitchens can be redesigned to include pull-out trash bins, upgraded appliances, stone or tile detail on granite islands, glass cabinet doors, and so on. Bathrooms can be improved by adding rubbed bronze fixtures, barrel ceilings over the tub, speakers for an intercom or music entertainment, linen closets with clothes hampers, a jetted bath tub, and more. Outdoor living spaces can have a kitchenette, fire pit, bench seats, or wood truss ceiling installed. For increased energy efficiency, tankless water heaters, vinyl windows, recessed lighting, and improved insulation can help make an impact.

Let Weston Dean build your home customized with the features and architectural style you’ve always dreamed of. Their Vision Views provides homebuyers and owners plenty of inspiration to mix with their own ideas.

Building a Custom Home: Part 3

Categories: San Antonio Custom Homebuilding | Posted: January 18, 2019

Welcome back to our series about building a Weston Dean Custom Home, who is one of the most sought after New Braunfels custom homebuilders in the area! Weston Dean can build your dream home on your dream lot. So  far in this blog series on the custom home building process we have discussed;

Phase 1: Design Services   and Phase 2: Construction Services.

In today’s post we want to talk about Phase 3: Our Warranty Services. Read below for more information, or call us for a site evaluation!

Your complete satisfaction is our goal, and so we’ve partnered with a warranty service company called ProHome to manage our warranty process 24 hours per day, 7 days per week during the first year of living in your new San Antonio home. ProHome is a national company that is well known and recognized for their customer service. (And so are we; one of the highest compliments we can receive is for you to be so impressed by our level of service and commitment to quality that you’re willing to recommend us to friends and family. We strive for that honor every step of the way).

1 Year Craftsman Warranty: The coverage for that first year is similar to your car’s “bumper-to-bumper” warranty. All builder-installed fixtures and appliances are covered for performance and workmanship for one year. We think that offers you the reassurance you need in your first year of custom homeownership; nothing should break, but if it does? We have you covered.

2 Year Systems Warranty: We also have this system in place for the first two years to ensure that all of your major systems are covered for proper delivery of service. That includes your plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and other appliances. Now, some parts and pieces of those systems are warranted for a lot longer than 2 years. We cover those first 2 years and afterwards your contractor will be there for any other issues.

10 Year BB Major Structural Warranty: Your San Antonio custom home is covered until year ten by Bonded Builders. In the event of any major repairs – whether that’s a foundation crack, pool leaks, framing sags, or other related issues – Bonded Builders will contract all repairs. Bonded Builders strictly screens all builders added to their warranty service program and we’re pleased to be a part of this system. We think it offers you peace of mind and the reassurance that we’ll be there if you ever need us.

At Weston Dean Custom Homes, we take the privilege of building your new custom home very seriously. Our unique custom designs and construction service experience have become one of a kind in our local market and we hope you consider us in your custom home construction, whether in one of our beautiful communities or right on your lot. Attention to detail and communication is what we’ve built our business around, to make the construction of your dream home as stress-free as possible. We hope this look at our Build on Your Lot program has helped inform you about the process.
