You could say that JLD Custom Homes were experts at building houses on Tucker Street. They recently completed their sixth home in this little enclave and it just so happens it is the only home available in Lakewood Hills for less than $1 million.

Just a peaceful neighborhood in the Lakewood Elementary School attendance area. With four bedrooms, a bonus room, four bathrooms, and a large backyard, this is a perfect addition to the neighborhood.

Frisco Custom Luxury
When I first laid eyes on this Frisco custom luxury spec home in the Hills of Kingswood at 4012 Starling Drive a few weeks ago, it was still in the final stages of construction. However, from the moment I entered until I left, I had to keep picking my jaw up off the ground.

That was Philip Carter’s objective. Carter is the president of Christian Custom Homes and is bringing a new level of luxury homebuilding to Frisco. His firm was just won three of the 2017 Dallas Builder’s Association ARC awards: Best New Build over $2 million, Best Kitchen, and Best Closet.

It’s hard picturing yourself in a home that is completely empty. Sometimes it’s even harder in a new build. That’s why staging is so important, especially for spec homes. 
 
When The Avant Group — a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder — finished this beautiful contemporary two story in Midway Hollow, the home’s incredibly lofty ceilings and cool neutral color palette made it feel cold and cavernous. So Avant’s marketing chief, Heaven Porteous, brought in Suzie Barrett, owner of Dallas Staging Solutions. The results speak for themselves.
