For most of us, the custom home building process is equally exciting and overwhelming–you’re ready to live in the house of your dreams, but making it happen can be an overwhelming prospect. The best way to get comfortable with the custom build process is to do a deep dive into the logistics and then find the right partner in your builder.
When you have a good idea of all the steps involved in a custom build, and the right team, all the overwhelming parts of the project shrink back down to a manageable size. Amerimex Homes Inc has been building and remodeling in the Piedmont Triad area for 18 years, and will guide you through the entire building process.

When you choose Amerimex Homes Inc, we’ll assist you with the selection, and ensure that your desired spot is not only the right topography for your home, but home elevations and expectations are met.
