What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"My wife and I are very please with our new custom built home in Summerfield, NC. We like the large storage space in the attic. With 1666 Sq Ft I have never seen a home with that much space in the attic. And the electric outlets are so appreciated. There are plenty of them in every room. Just recently I noticed an extra outlet under the cabinet in the master bathroom. All has been well thought out. The ladies must have been involved in the planning of my home. I have had several homes built but have never experience such satisfaction in a home. The floors are level, and all the walls are plumb. And the cut-off valve in the storage room, where it is always nice and warm. Not on the outside but inside the house, where it is most convenient.

Everything is quality. The work and craftmanship is outstanding. The materials used are top grade. From what I have seen in the last four months of ownership, everything is "top notch".

I have built two site-built homes before, but Nationwide is my choice from now on. In my opinion Nationwide Custom Homes is the way to go in building.

Thank you for building us such a fine home and an enjoyable home. "
