Custom Homes by Built By Adams
Build Your Dream Home in York County or Cumberland County with a Company You Can Trust
At Built By Adams, we understand that a custom home is just that - CUSTOM. It is with that understanding that has made us one of the leading custom home builders in Southern Maine for over 40 years. We work extensively with each of our clients to ensure that we are not building the home we want.... we are building the home you want at the budget you are comfortable with investing.
We give you the power of choice and we can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of an onsite stick-building vs. stick building using panels. Both types of homes we build are superior to traditional built homes and you cannot go wrong with either process.
Built By Adams has over 30 pre-designed one story and two story home plans to choose from which can help streamline the home building process. Or bring us your own ideas and we can help you design and build the home of your dreams.
Building a new custom home is a big decision and we get that more than most builders. And one of the biggest causes of stress for most people who are considering building a new home is the cost or determining initial budget and pricing. Learn more about our Pricing and Fees.
While the price is one of many factors that ultimately goes into building a new home, it should NOT be your number #1 factor when deciding who to choose as your home builder. We have seen many people get burned by chasing the lowest price for their new home only to be left with a half completed project and nowhere to turn for help. Do not let yourself fall victim to this common problem.
Pay Attention to the Builder Warranty and Home Performance
At Built By Adams we feel you really need to pay attention to the warranty and guarantee that is given from your builder and history of performance (testimonials, reviews, lots of successful projects under their belt (at least 20), etc). We have been building homes and remodeling since 1976. And with hundreds of projects successfully completed, we truly have seen it all.
Maine is a not an easy place to build a home and you need to make sure you hire a builder who stands behind their work for longer than 1 year (We provide a 10 Year Structural Warranty + 2 Year Workmanship Warranty which is 2x's the standard warranty that 99% of builders offer in Maine offer - see Warranty page for comparison).
Second should be what goes into the home as far as how the builder plans to deal with moisture (both outside and inside the home), air infiltration (for comfort and for energy savings), insulation, quality materials, structural performance, solar orientation, and so on.
We review all of this in our detailed Free Project Consultation so we know exactly what is important to you in your new home and you know exactly what you are buying.
Areas We Serve in Southern Maine
Easy to Understand Home Building Pricing and Process
We build homes in York County and Cumberland County. On occasion, we may build outside of this area for special projects, but mostly this is where we build. With offices in Sanford, Maine and a model home in Kennebunkport, Maine, we are well positioned to serve these areas.
Over the past ten years, we have also integrated high performance home building practices into our custom home building process. On the outside, most homes look the same, but most don't perform as they should and most "old school" builders have been really slow to adopt modern building science. Building an energy efficient home, doesn't have to cost much more than a traditional home, but by building smarter you will gain a lot in both energy savings, comfort, and improved indoor air quality.
We take pride in the fact that we want you to have more than just a house, we want you to have a home that you can be proud of. A home that is built by the finest craftsmen, a home that is durable, built with quality materials, and helps reduce your energy needs and consumption. At Built By Adams, we don't feel it's right to build a home any other way.
