What is the Cost Per Square Foot When Building with Sterling?2019-12-30T19:15:30-06:00

This is the most common question we get… and the most difficult to accurately answer. Until we have had the opportunity to meet with you and determine the scope of the project, no builder could give you an accurate answer. Many factors affect your cost per square foot, such as the cost associated with the amenities you choose, the amount of covered porch area, the community requirements, the topography of your lot, the need for a water well and/or septic system, the distance of your home from the street, whether or not you want a pool, sport court, casita, outdoor kitchen, or other feature… the list goes on and on. We take the time up front to get to know you and understand your lifestyle. With this in mind and the budgetary goals identified, we walk you through the process and deliver a fixed price cost sheet that identifies all the components of the cost associated with your project.

What Awards & Industry Recognition have you received?2020-04-25T11:42:38-05:00

Sterling Custom Homes has been honored with over 100 Local, State and National awards throughout the years, and still counting. In 2008, we were recognized by the Texas Association of Builders as the Texas Custom Builder of the Year, an honor we received from TAB in 2004 and from the Texas Association of Realtors in 1992, as well. In fact, Sterling Custom Homes is the only builder to have been named Custom Builder of the Year three times. While the awards and peer recognition are gratifying, our most valued compliments come from our customers. We’d love to have you talk to a few of them before you select a builder for your next custom home.

Can You Supply a List of References that We Can Contact?2019-12-30T19:15:30-06:00

When we meet, you will receive a comprehensive list of everyone we have built for since 1989. We encourage prospective clients to contact several of our past customers and learn about our product and processes, or watch The Sterling Experience and hear what our customers say about us.

How Do I Choose an Architect / Designer?2019-12-30T19:15:30-06:00

We have worked with many of the prominent Architectural and Design firms in the Austin area throughout the years. We have found that some clients come to us with the desire to use a specific Architect/Designer and we are happy to accommodate that request. If you do not have a preference, we spend time with you to learn about your design criteria and then offer a recommendation of an Architect/Designer that we feel will fit the project.
