Salem Custom Designs FAQs

1. Can I build a barn or out building?

Answer: Yes. You can build a secondary building on you home site, but there are restrictions. You are required to meet the same restrictions on the outside of the structure that your home has to meet. The same brick, roof pitch and windows. Please refer to the “Restrictive Covenants” it is available on the web site. Inside the building can be anything you want, a barn, a shop or a studio.

2. Will you build on my lot?

Answer: I would appreciate the opportunity to build your home for you.

3. Can I use my own builder?

Answer: Yes, You are allowed to choose your builder. All plans & details must be approved in writing before any construction can begin. All builders must have their TRCC license # and be in good standing with TRCC. Please look at the “Restrictive Covenants” it is available on the web site here.

4. What is the average cost per foot?

Answer: The average cost per square foot is a very ineffective measure to use, because it does not consider some large costs involved in construction. The sq.ft. of covered porches, how many garages you have, the cost of the driveway, landscape & extras. My favorite analogy is comparing this question to the purchasing a new auto. How much does a new 4 door luxury car cost? Obviously GMs version does not cost the same as a Lexus, or a Mercedes, they are built differently and the cost is different.

5. What are the utilities, phone, cable costs?

Answer: All of these are controlled by you. Utilities are a big concern, that’s why Salem Design came up with its “Smart Energy package. This package could save you hundreds each month by effectively insulating you home. You the home owner still have the final control, by setting your thermostat wisely.

6. I’ve never had a septic tank; what do I need to know?

Answer: The biggest difference in living with a septic system compared to a city sewer hook up is the home-owner need to promote the healthy growth of a bacterial culture within the septic treatment plan. This is done by not using any products that contain bleach in your home. You also need to not put oils or any animal fat down you drains (These items can not be broken down by your system). The Aerobic systems we use treat the waste water then recycle it to sprinkler heads that water your lawn.
