carefully crafted for you

Custom Homes make street and sometimes state sale records.

Spec homes (off the plan) are generic, incur variation charges for small changes, use inferior bulk buy products and feel stale.

Why build a home that is tailored for the project builder rather than you?

A Hughes design is uniquely yours. Carefully created alongside our drafting team to incorporate high quality products & materials, keep up with modern design trends and build in features that compliment your lifestyle.
