At WillowTree we walk you through each step towards finishing your luxury home.
DESIGNING YOUR HOME
WillowTree has expert personnel ready to design your home to any standards, size or requirements. Let us know what you envision and we will make it a reality.
LAYING THE FOUNDATION
Just like any other endeavor in life, to build something strong you must begin with a solid foundation. Every luxury home we build starts with a strong base.
FRAMING YOUR HOME
Once the foundation is set, it is time to frame your home. During this time you will finally begin to see your home come to life as the skeleton becomes whole. Rooms, hallways and closets become clearer as wiring and plumbing are visible throughout the house.
Once the shell is built, your new house becomes a home down to the smallest detail as we complete construction with luxurious finishing touches and expert interior design.
