Garage slab… check!

The garage slab was poured and is being finished (polished with the paddle blades).


The garage slab can be poured too!

We have raised the floor of the garage to make for minimal steps coming in to the house from the garage.  The compacted fill sand has been completed and we are ready for the concrete to be poured.

Custom home builder, loving my work!

Duvin 100 Tadworth (640x480)                How many people can honestly say they love what they do?? I can!! What a wonderful blessing!! Being able to wake up and be excited to help folks bring their desires to life is so satisfying. I enjoy the fact that my work encompasses so many arenas. I like to get to know you from the very beginning of the process. When we talk about your needs and wants I get a good feel for your lives. Then on to selecting a lot if you don’t have one yet. Being able to help you see how your home will site on property and explaining any pitfalls are very important to me. I love looking for all of the options and possibilities each lot presents. During the lot process we are also selecting a home plan to fit your specific needs and desires. Once we have the plan and the property then it’s on to the selection process. I get to take you to the suppliers to guide you in your selection of features, keeping you from making any mistakes and encouraging you to stay true to your taste and likes. You get my personal hand holding and all of my professional experience. It’s a blast!! I love making it painless and fun for you!! In the mean time, I am getting all of the approvals and permits to begin clearing and construction. By this point my heart is so full of excitement, joy, and the promise of another happy, satisfied customer and hopefully friend. I just enjoyed coffee and catching up in a customer’s home that I built for 17 years ago. The reminiscing was fun and getting to catch up on kids and grand kids even better. I think back over all of the friends I have from just that initial point of contact of a house needing to be built and am amazed at the relationships that grew out of that. Again, what a blessing!

Getting calls about building 2,000 s.f. custom homes and up in Ford’s Colony, Williamsburg, VA

I am glad to see that “I might be on to something” as one fella said on the phone. I have such a desire to help folks by building small quality built homes in the wonderful Ford’s Colony neighborhood or any other lot you want a quality home built on. I see such a need for this and want to fill the need. I have been working on floor plans to fit this idea and also updating my builder’s package to be able to mail out to out of town-ers that would like to learn more about Kimberly Builders. I am even talking with customers from almost 20 years ago who have become dear friends of mine. They also are talking about reducing the square footage of their homes by building one of our smaller plans. It’s exciting to see this direction starting to take off. They are even sharing it with their friends and family members. One caller loved the idea and was going to share with his adult son the possibilities of living in Ford’s Colony in a 2,500 s.f. home (2000 1st floor, 500 bonus room) because he wanted to downsize.
let me know how I can help you downsize and keep on living the lifestyle you love as we age gracefully together.757-880-9321

New Single Story Custom Homes for downsizing, life needs & retirement in Ford’s Colony Williamsburg VA 1800 s.f. and up

JPEG for blog

I am excited to be updating our plan portfolio to include single story home plans starting at 1,800 s.f. and up. These homes meet the minimum square footage requirements for most of the sections in the Ford’s Colony Community in Williamsburg Va.  Some of these plans are homes that were built for our customers and have been enjoyed for years.  Ford’s Colony is a wonderful place to live because it has all of the amenities that most folks are looking for at a very reasonable HOA fee.  Unlike many of the retirement communities that have a much higher HOA fee you can have a retirement style home but live in a quality built custom home built by Kimberly Builders, Inc.  Just in case you are wondering though, these plans can be built anywhere in the Williamsburg area where building lots are available or on your property as well.  I am designing them to be more senior friendly or life needs friendly to not only meet the open concept of our current younger market but also to meet the needs across the board of life.  These plans are open, light, bright and airy and have wider passageways and doorways.  They are designed to have large walk in showers with a bench option for ease and function.  I am also including many more features and putting quite a bit of forethought and planning in to the function of the home as well as ease of access in and out of these homes.  I am reducing the steps in and out of the house at the front door, garage door and rear patio doors.  I am happy to modify our plans  to fit your desires and needs or we can build plans you bring to us.

I am also offering a full service package.  Not only will I build your new home but if you are currently living in a larger home that should be updated to put on the market, I can take care of that for you.  After updating your larger home, while you have it on the market, we can be selecting and preparing the house plan that works best for your lifestyle. We also offer as a free service help with selecting the proper lot for you new home as well.  I will keep you from making the mistakes so often made during the purchasing process.  Once your ready to start construction I will take care of the complete construction process from beginning to end and I will walk you through the selection process as well.  My aim and goal is to make this a stress free experience for you allowing you to do life as usual.  Who knows, you might end up loving building as much as I do when it’s all said and done.  So give me a call to talk about how I can help you~  757-880-9321  Kim Griffith
