Create a Modern Custom Home


When faced with the limited choices of tract homes in a new development, these homeowners challenged Maykus Custom Homes (MCH) to create a new speculative home that would stand out from the crowd. Once challenged, MCH went to work to design and build an ultra-modern showcase home for their family.


MCH choose Style Line® Series windows for their sleek, narrow frames. The windows have a bronze exterior color and large 2x3 grids to give it a modern feeling. Large picture windows were used near the front entry and outdoor living areas to take advantage of tranquil views of a nearby pond.


M.J. Wright of Maykus Custom Homes offers this advice for anyone looking to build a custom home. “Do your due diligence in looking for a builder, then trust the team you hired. A reputable builder will always keep your style, tastes and interests in mind.” He goes on to say, “Our ultimate reward is to have the family love the look and design of the home as much as we do.”
