Let’s Build Something Together

We know this process can we overwhelming, especially for first time builders. Here are some frequently asked questions. Feel free to give us a call if there are any questions you might have about a project with us.
Why should I build a custom home?
It takes a special house to become a home. And you deserve a home that is built exactly to your liking. Imagine getting to choose all of the custom features, desired details, and finishing touches just the way you want. A home that is customized for you will be your own unique haven and place of hospitality. You’ll make memories that last a lifetime in this home.
How long is the building process?
After the first shovel hits the ground, the building process usually takes six to eight months, depending on the size of the home and the level of finishes. We will also work with the county on your behalf as needed to help obtain a building permit.
Aren’t custom homes really expensive?
Not necessarily. Custom homes come in all different shapes, sizes, finishes, and prices. Our customers have been surprised how affordable custom homes can be. Tell us what you’re looking for, and we can give you a bid back in 5 business days!

Client Testimonials

We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciate for the fine job you and your associates at Thomas Brent Custom Homes did for us on our project to finish our attic at 506 Parkview Crescent. The project was of very high quality, on time and within the estimate you provided. The site was left very clean and all waste materials removed. We would have no hesitation in recommending you for other work.
Carl and Leslie Braam

We knew this was the house for us the moment we walked in. It is the perfect layout for our needs – which is difficult to find in a spec home! We have found the quality of construction to be exceptional and your attention to detail is outstanding. Together they make our home special and elegant. Your friendly and professional demeanor is refreshing. You have always made yourself available when needed and you have periodically checked on us to see how we were doing. Not many people can say that about their builders!
Stacy and Robert Stein

Brent Voelkel is a “hands on” builder with usually only one or two project in process at the same time. He was on the site for the most part, every single day, supervising the work of the various sub-contractors. Brent is also very good about maintaining as clean and safe a construction site as possible. He hires very talented professionals and ensures that their work lives up to his and his client’s expectations.
