Building in Today’s Environment | Stewart Builders LLC

We made it! 2022 is here and can we all agree that making it through 2021 was a HUGE accomplishment?!  I have no doubt that we have all had personal hurdles to overcome during the pandemic…and it goes without saying that the same is true for the custom home building industry~Building in Today’s Environment may seem overwhelming, Stewart Builders is ready to guide you through the process!

Building in Today’s Environment may seem challenging, but you do not need to put your dream home aspirations on hold! In fact, putting them on hold may cost you substantially more in the future.  We have all heard “lumber prices have skyrocketed”…although they have increased over the past year +, they have also seen a slight decrease.  WOO HOO!

Now, let’s dive into other aspects of Building in Today’s Environment~ Plumbing, we are seeing 10%-40% increases (as of today) along with material shortages, painting supply shortages, sheet rock material price increases, electrical increases at 50%…you get where I’m going.

At this point, you may be asking yourself, “why in the world would I want to build now?”  It’s a pretty straight forward answer…prices are not going to go down any time soon.  So, if you’re on the fence, or thinking “I’ll just wait until things settle down, then I’ll start my dream home”. 

Our advice: STOP WAITING!  Patience will be key as we all navigate through Building in Today’s Environment.  The end product will be GORGEOUS!

Stewart Builders is dedicated to keeping our clients, vendors and sub-contractors safe and healthy~ Many of our vendors are limiting the number of clients in the showroom, and/or offering virtual appointments.  So, grab a cup of coffee and select your appliances from the comfort of your home!

Alright…enough about pandemic “stuff”.  Let’s get to the important topic ~ What are the newest trends?!  Stewart Builders is still seeing a beautiful mix of modern to rustic, and everything in between.  And can we say hey there Blue Tones in about every shade?! ~ LOVE~!
