We very well might ask YOU the same question. There are hundreds of variables at play affecting cost when designing and building a new home. Because of this, we don't have a set price per square foot that we charge. Instead, we work closely with you from the start to determine how to get the most out of your budget. Our highly-skilled and trained team members are taking a value-engineering approach from the onset of the design phase. At any budget level, this approach ensures you are getting the most important features in your new home all while respecting your stated budget goals.
Dennis Miller Homes never starts with any base, stock or ‘cookie-cutter’ type of floor plans regardless of whether our clients choose to go full or curated custom. We have found that our clients really appreciate having a truly one-of-a-kind custom home tailored for their specific lot and around their unique lifestyle. Being able to start designing on a ‘blank canvas’ allows us the artistic freedom to accentuate the positives and mitigates whatever negatives there may be in regards to the homesite’s surroundings such as views, streets, neighbors, etc
We take a true team approach to building our one-of-a-kind homes at Dennis Miller Homes. Each team member plays a very important role in the construction of your new custom home. Our clients will interact with a handful of our dedicated team members at various stages of your project. Once the project enters the actual construction phase, you will be visiting mostly with one of our highly-skilled and experienced Project Managers.
Home is someplace offering peace of mind, comfort and an enhanced quality of life. Dennis Miller Homes is St. George Utah’s custom home builder. Building beautifully inspired homes with unlimited possibilities on the land that you love. We serve many of St. George Utah’s premier areas, whether you want to live in the heart of St. George or have a custom home on the outskirts of Hurricane - DMH has you covered.
There are several variables affecting the construction timeline when building a new home… weather, material and labor availability, customer changes, geography, etc. In most instances, however, our curated custom homes take an average of eight to ten months to build and our custom homes are in the ten to fourteen-month range.
We frankly and intentionally don't have a standard features list. As a genuine custom home builder building unique one-of-a-kind homes, we say "everything is on the table." In other words, a DMH client will have the flexibility and opportunity to make choices not only regarding the design, fixtures, and finishes of their home, but also in many other areas throughout the project (i.e. framing specifications, windows, insulation, HVAC specifications, etc.). We will educate and guide you along the way letting you know the benefits and costs associated with all your available choices. This approach is what allows our delighted clients to truly experience what it means to build a custom home.
At Dennis Miller Homes, a Pre-Construction Services Agreement is a document used to establish a method for providing our clients with a real achievable “plan” for their new construction project and not just a typical “bid.” Upon completion of the Pre-Construction portion of the project, our clients will be equipped with detailed architectural plans, structural plans developed by a State of Utah’s licensed Engineer (If requested), a geotechnical investigation and summary of the soils on their property, Homeowners Association Architectural approval (if applicable) and a detailed list of specifications and allowances for their new home… all within their predetermined desired budget goals.
Value engineering means continuously looking for ways to lower overall project costs while keeping the features our clients really want. We pride ourselves with seeking ways to save money, we do this by making possible suggestions like changing the floor plans and elevations, or using different materials in specific areas.
