Custom Home Features

No other custom builder is as committed to quality as Lakecrest Builders. Our commitment is to always design and build homes that surpass expectation, defy definition and cater to a higher standard. Inside-and-out, our homes are the epitome of unique design, superior materials and quality craftsmanship.

Custom Home Features:

We prefer to use the Arxx Wall System as it outperforms other construction methods with its structural integrity, energy efficiency, sound reduction, and wind and fire resistance.
A wide range of materials are used to provide variation for the exterior of your home, including Mt. Moriah stone and fieldstone wainscot of random rubble (different sizes and shapes of stones), arranged to create an Old World appearance.
We use metal clad wood, casement style windows, with wide horizontal mullions and large windowpanes. Finish colors vary.
We use various roofing techniques and materials including concrete tiles reminiscent of European slate. Roof colors can vary from home to home and will have a tone on tone variation. We also use rustic, cor-ten roofs, cor-ten gives interest to the roof and adds dimension to the overall appearance of the home.
We use wooden doors of the highest quality with a thickness of 3 inches and overall measurements of 4ft wide by 8ft tall, or larger.
An accent to the exterior of the home. A stone band at the bottom with a ornamental chimney cap at the top blends nicely with the body of the home.
Drainage of rain water is led away from doorways with copper-metal gutters. The copper will age, creating a beautiful patina.
Surround yourself with Old World hand-textured walls in a two tone paint contrasting the beautifully stained doors.
Our homes feature beautiful plumbing packages that are functional and stylish. We have many different finishes to suit your tastes.
Interior doors of solid alder feature two vertical panels with a square top, which forms this eight foot high solid-core door. The unique grains and patterns of this natural wood will be finished with medium tone stain and satin sheen sealer.
Custom built-in entertainment centers and kitchen and bath cabinetry enhance your home and exemplify your personal style.
Thick granite countertop slabs in the kitchen, baths and throughout the house add incomparable luxury and value.
Fireplace surround choices include cast or natural stone flowing from the hearth up to the wood or stone mantle.
A simple base with clean lines finish off the walls and can be 7 1/4 inches tall, painted to slightly contrast with the wall color. Beautiful crown moldings - a simple cove design painted with light hues to accent the rooms. Window sills have a "Craftsmen" style look with a painted finish to compliment the overall style of your home.
We use a variety of flooring materials in our custom built homes including hand-distressed wide planks to achieve an authentic Old World look.
As a beautiful way to finish doors, we install hand-made levers mounted over a raised escutcheon in a pewter finish.
We install professional grade appliances including Sub-Zero, Thermador, Viking, Wolfe and Bosch to name just a few.
Our interior designers are the very best in the area and will help assist you in making your selections.
Hand-laid to assure perfection and durability.
Custom-designed landscaping creates instantaneous visual interest while increasing the value of your home.
Customized black wrought iron.

Our homes feature the finest materials and elements available. From exterior options like Mt. Moriah stone, hand-forged garage door hardware, metal clad wood windows and custom landscaping. Interior details include gourmet kitchens, granite counters, creative tile designs and brushed pewter door and bath hardware, our homes exemplify quality and attention to detail.
