"My wife and I had already chosen to build the "Tradition" with Lew Combs at Cornerstone Home Builders Inc. on our property in Chesterfield, VA before the event, but couldn't resist the chance to see our home in the plant being constructed. We took the plant tour and our home was about half way through the process. I am Nationwide's biggest advocate in our local area and after seeing the process up close, I really don't know why one would choose to build any other way. It literally is Henry Ford's assembly line all over again.
The build is a fulfillment of a life long dream of mine as it will be located on our property which has been handed down for five generations. We feel we are not just building a house, but a home that will become a part of our legacy and a permanent part of the landscape on our family farm. Thank you for helping to make that possible. "
John & Michelle,
