Sawlor Built Home Sweet Home

After months of researching potential builders, our Homeowner’s approached us with their magazine clippings and Houzz idea books and asked if we could help them on the journey to their Home Sweet Home. We assured them we could! Because of the uniqueness of our Clients and their dream home, we documented the building process to share with our Fans!

It is very important to keep your jobsite neat and tidy. As you can see below, our crew has organized their tools and materials are stacked nicely around their poured gingerbread foundation. Every home must start with a solid foundation! (Learn more about jobsite safety and maintenance.)

The walls are going up! It is important that your structure is straight, square, plumb and level! Framed with clean, kiln dried gingerbread and lots of insulating icing materials. This home will be extremely warm and comfortable! 

At this time, Homeowners are thinking about all of the Decisions they will be signing off on in the near future. (Learn more about the interior and exterior decisions a Homeowner will make during the building process)

Our sweet Homeowners stopped by for a visit! They are very happy with the progress thus far. Communication with our Clients is critical to ensure an enjoyable building experience. Don’t forget, hard hats and work boots must be worn on site! (Learn why "Communication is the Key to Your New Home")

Our Homeowners have signed off on the exterior decisions. Installation of the shingles is coming along nicely! Our Homeowners have decided on charming candy finishes including Natural Gingerbread with White Frosting Shingles. Natural Gingerbread Siding paired with Fondant front door & matching window sills.

The installation of exterior finishes must be completed correctly and professionally! Poor installation will cause you and your builder a lot of grief! Decorative details such as gum drops and jelly beans should be securely fastened in place, without compromising the integrity of the roofing membrane. (Learn more about the importance of ensuring your siding is correctly installed)
