looking for land?

Rachel Brown Homes can help you find the perfect place to call “home.” We assist in not only seeking out a lot in a subdivision or acreage, we also assist in making sure it’s suitable to be built on and verifying important details like soils, utilities, and septic/sewer availability.

create. don’t replicate!

At Rachel Brown Homes, we work with a draftsman to create a home specifically designed to your lifestyle. We work “from scratch” using your ideas and “vision”, as well as pictures, magazines, online resources, and Rachel’s design skills to assist you with the designing and drawing plans of your dream home.

Walk Away From the “Assembly Line” Design Approach!

“Production Home” Design Centers that “claim” to build “custom” are very limited. Don’t be fooled. Rachel personally meets with you at multiple vendor’s showrooms to pick your selections from vast collections of lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, and flooring just to name a few.

Worried About Your Budget?

Let us worry about the numbers for you! We work diligently to hire the best quality sub-contractors and vendors for the best pricing, and because we pick out all your selections with you, we help keep you in budget while still giving you the “Style” and “Function” you desire.

I don’t have floorplans.

Whats next?

That’s the exciting part of CUSTOM building with Rachel Brown Homes. Do you dream of a workshop for your tools? A large closet for your heels? A man cave? We think that’s AWESOME. We take your ideas as well as many resources from our floorplan inventory and design with a draftsman exactly what you dream.

Should we buy a lot or land prior to meeting with your team?

If you currently own a lot or land, we will walk your lot to make sure the home we design is situated on your land the perfect way for your lifestyle. We take the burden of site planning and prepping off of your shoulders. If you do not own land yet, we can assist you in locating your desired homesite as well as researching to make sure that the land is viable to be built on.

What if I still have a home to sell?

No problem! We work with many talented real estate agents that can assist in the listing and timing for the sale of your home. On average, our Huntsville AL custom homes take about five to six months to build. We also have excellent working relationships with many lenders who can provide you with exactly the loan that fits your needs best. We believe in teamwork at Rachel Brown Homes!
