Latest News in Custom Homebuilding

  • Trends and challenges
  • 4/08/2014
  • It seems like the economy may finally be straigtning out...at least that's my opinion.  I have many of our clients ask me what the future may hold for homebuilding so I thought I would put a few of my thoughts down.
  • Cooler weather is heating up!
  • 9/12/2013
  • Well, It seems like the fall of every year is our busy design time. We currently have two custom homes in final design stages and hope to start both before the end of the year and another two that we are in final details on negotiations. We're going to be doing some traveling however....with one home in Western Wake County...another in Granville County and one in Chapel Ridge. Stay tuned for more information.
  • Our Latest Completion
  • 6/18/2013
  • Check out this short video of our latest home. This beautiful home was recently completed and the client has already moved in and is enjoying the great setting. The home is a 2,600 square foot ranch with an unfinished basement for the client's woodworking shop. If you would like more information on this home or any of the homes we have built, please don't hesitate to contact us at 919-981-0341 or info@morningstarhomesinc.com.

  • Encore Presentation of Our Parade Home
  • 6/18/2013
  • Well, timing was such this year that we were unable to enter a home in this year's Parade of Homes. So, we decided to do an encore presentation of the video from our Parade Home last year[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ljHb991FbA]. This home was built for a client that wanted to incorporate some additional energy features over and above what we provide as part of the Energy Star certification. To this end, this home had solar hot water, 18 Solar Photovoltaic panels to supplement their energy, an Energy Management system, a rain water harvesting system and upgraded insulation.
  • On Your Lot!
  • 3/12/2013
  • We just wanted to remind everyone that Morningstar Homes is one of the leading "on your lot" custom home builders. Now, what happens if you want to build with us and don't own a lot? Not to worry, we will help you find a lot! We are constantly on the lookout for available lots, in the areas that we build, so we can pass this information on to our clients. We will gladly look at any lots that you may be considering and give you an objective opinion as to the pros and cons of a particular lot so that you can make an educated final decision.

  • Well, The Election is Over
  • 11/13/2012
  • I know that many of you have shared with me that you are glad that the election is over. Whatever your political leanings, we are all hopefull that there will be some continued progress with the economy. I will say, that since November 6th, we have written two contracts for custom homes to be built "right away" to quote our clients and have a third in the works.
