Scott Homebuilders, a CandysDirt.com Approved Builder, is no stranger to custom craftsmanship. From design to build, Scott Homebuilders brings your dreams to life! And they are the very team responsible for this week’s Builder’s Beauty. In fact, the warm and inviting lodge-style home at 289 Pine Drive in Southlake is the very essence of what Scott Homebuilders stands for – making the process of owning a new home efficient, enjoyable, and rewarding.

“We’re proud to have completed design-build construction of this lodge-style home with a transitional interior on one-acre, with a private well in Southlake, for Chris and Heather,” says John Scott, Managing Partner at Scott Homebuilders.

The 8,770-square-foot (under roof) home was meticulously crafted. The builders used only the finest materials, all while taking special care to not only meet but exceed the owners’ wishes, according to Nancy Scott – wife and managing partner alongside husband John, at Scott Homebuilders.

And the result is nothing short of extraordinary! From its use of natural materials on the façade, to its fresh transitional interior of buyer’s selections, you’re going to love what’s in 289 Pine Drive. But be ready to take notes. This Builder’s Beauty is one for the books!

Canadian_Lumber

Last week, the Trump Administration announced a new tariff of up to 24 percent on Canadian lumber. According to a report by CNN Money, Canadian lumber accounts for nearly a third of all lumber used in the United States, and the new duty could raise the price of homebuilding by six percent, on average.

“For builders, it’ll increase the cost of construction by about $3,000 on the average home, which unfortunately will be passed on to consumers,” said Jerry Howard, CEO of [the National Association of Home Builders].

Builders argue that higher prices will translate into a slowdown of construction activity that could cost 8,000 U.S. jobs and $500 million in lost wages.

How could a lumber tariff affect homebuilding in Dallas-Fort Worth? We reached out to John Scott of Scott Homebuilders for a clearer picture of how local trades and buyers could be impacted.
