When planning a new home, you want to find the best match for your lifestyle and needs. At Lamar Smith Homes, we understand that the ability to customize a house helps make it a functioning home. That’s why we’ve been working hard to revamp our floorpans , options, and elevations, to bring you the best homes possible.

Building a new home, versus buying a resale, gives you many advantages. You can customize the layout to your personal taste, incorporate energy-efficient throughout, and move into a home that is fully warrantied.

Another distinct advantage of choosing a new home is that you can incorporate universal design. Also known as “barrier-free design”, this thoughtful approach accommodates details that make your home accessible to anyone. Households with elderly or disabled family members experience challenges that others haven’t considered. Whether you need extra space to maneuver a wheelchair or single-story living to avoid climbing stairs, there are many details that can be easily built into your new home, like wider hallways and doorways, lower countertops and sinks, and ramp access.
