Rich and Brooke Maxwell are at the site of their new home every day. “We hate to leave”, Rich says. The trusses went up the other day and that’s when it gets exciting for sure! You now get a feel for the size and scope of the home. They have a lovely colonial going up with many of Smolen Homes custom touches. Coffered ceilings, black walnut flooring, fireplace with custom wood mantle and stone surround as well as built-ins with glass doors, just to mention a few. New construction is certainly the way to get exactly what you want in your home. It also offers many of the energy saving features you just don’t get with older homes.
