When we met with NVD, despite not having a floor plan, we knew what we wanted in a house. They listened to our ideas and budget, and came back with 3 options. They had drawn up the house plans from scratch and each was within our budget. Their quote was extremely detailed so we knew from the start where our money would be going. I was very adamant that we have all 4 bedrooms upstairs as we have 3 small kids and wanted to be on the same level as them. One of the plans had the 4 bedrooms on the second floor, but Laurie and her team had drawn up 2 plans with 3 bedrooms upstairs and the master on the main level. She encouraged us to have an open mind. She reminded us that we had told NVD that this would be our forever home, and we wanted to live in it until we were elderly. She recommended having the master on the main level to make this a possibility. She suggested using the master on the main level as our guest room, until we were ready to move on a separate floor from our kids. She recalled two of our kids were already sharing a room, so the 3 bedrooms upstairs would fit our current needs. Most builders give you what you ask for and many home buyers end up doing huge renovations only a few years after building because of dysfunctional design flaws in their floor plans. We are so glad Laurie and her team had the expertise and wisdom to take what we wanted, and turn it into what we needed.
In the past we had been warned about the hazards of building. Everyone complained of builders going tens of thousands of dollars over budget, finishing the project months past the move in date. NVD had us in 4 days early and came very close to being on budget.
Many believe it must be exceedingly more expensive to build with NVD because the interior design component is part of the package, however it is a complimentary service when you build with them. This is the New View difference. As a busy mom with 3 kids under the age of 6, I did not have time to run to numerous hardware stores or do online shopping looking for tiles, light fixtures, flooring, faucets, etc. One of the highlights of working with NVD is they would get an idea of our style and then give us 3 options for each decision; 3 options for flooring, 3 options for doors, etc. They would then carry that theme and design throughout the house so in the end it all came together. Interior design is not a skill I possess nor do I enjoy. NVD saved us spending our time and weekends carting 3 toddlers to 4 different department stores making the hundreds of little decisions that go into building a house. Looking at the end product, Sam and Laurie nailed the design and gave us a stunning house we just simply could not have imagined on our own.
The carpenters were punctual, reliable and led by Marshall, a superb foreman. The NVD team delivered us our dream house within our budget, on time, with very few hiccups along the way...during the COVID pandemic. They were transparent with us the entire build. We can not recommend the NVD team enough if you are looking to build a home."
