What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"Thank you for all your efforts towards making my coastal house a reality. As you know, the coastal area of south Tallahassee, Florida is isolated from major building supply houses, accommodations, and food services - thus complicating the demands of labor. It is for these reasons and more that I chose to use Nationwide Custom Homes. Not only did the house arrive equipped to handle the high wind conditions of the area, but also afforded me with a nearly - completed home on the first day.

I appreciate your time in teaching me about your company's product and used the knowledge to design the perfect coastal home for our family. The impact to the local environment was minimal and the house never received a drop of rain inside. We considered other systems-built manfacturing plants in the Southeast, and chose Nationwide Custom Homes for the quality of product, sales knowledge and engineering support."
