FAQs

Why should I think about a Stillwater home?
Stillwater was founded by two prominent residential architects and a custom home builder with a simple mission: to make contemporary design, premium materials and sustainable building practices available to more discerning home buyers.
Stillwater homes are designed with dramatic natural lighting, intelligent floor plans and premium contemporary finishes, for exceptional quality and value.  Flexible, systems-based prefab construction supports a high level of design and craftsmanship, controls costs and eliminates surprises.   Building a new home should be exciting and rewarding, not stressful and open ended. Stillwater streamlines the design and building process, shortening project time, reducing waste—and saving money.
Is it possible to tour a Stillwater home?
We conduct private tours of Stillwater homes by appointment.  Since the homes we show are occupied by their owners we need to schedule in advance.  If you're serious about visiting a Stillwater home please contact us and we'll arrange a tour.  The next best thing to a personal visit is our video tour of a Stillwater home.
Will Stillwater revise a plan or do a custom plan for me?
Absolutely.  Our team of experienced architects is dedicated to crafting solutions for your unique needs. Many Stillwater clients start with one of our Detailed Plans and customize it to fit their needs.  Others envision an entirely new Stillwater—either way we can help.   For information on custom design services please contact a Stillwater representative.
What do Stillwater Homes Cost?
Stillwater homes generally cost 30%  to 50% less than typical site built custom homes with comparable professional design, finishing materials, fixtures and appliances.   The typical total project cost for a Stillwater home is between  $225  and $300 per square foot, complete on your lot.   Please contact us for more detailed pricing information.
How long does it take to build a Stillwater home?
The time from order placement to move-in averages six to twelve months—up to a year faster than a site built custom home.  The many variables in the process that can impact timing include customization, local zoning, permitting and site work.  Actual time in the fabrication facility is only 8-12 weeks.
What is included in a Stillwater Home?
Stillwater produces a complete home, fully finished inside and out, complete with paint, lighting and plumbing fixtures, cabinets, wood flooring, countertops and all electrical and plumbing systems. The total price includes all architecture drawings, structural engineering, and state building permits.  Our Specifications Fact Sheet gives you all the details.
How complete is the home when it's delivered?
Homes are about 98% complete when delivered.  It's largely a matter of attaching the home to the foundation, connecting utilities and completing our comprehensive set-up process.
