Buying a home is always an exciting experience, but building your own is thrilling!

In addition to having brand-new, top-quality construction, which ensures that your home is built to last, you have the ability to choose your own finishes and architectural details.

Why Buy a New, Custom Home?

Why Buy a New, Custom Home?

The process of purchasing new construction is very different from buying an older home. It allows you much more interaction than you’d get if you were purchasing a pre-built house, and it gives you the opportunity to actively create a design that perfectly matches your lifestyle and preferences.

New, Cutting-Edge Technology

New, Cutting-Edge Technology

New homes have more than the latest technology and the finest materials. They’re equipped with cutting-edge appliances, up-to-date (and up-to-code) wiring and plumbing, and durable, quality craftsmanship in every corner, too.

That gives you a clean slate; a fresh start.

Years of worry-free living because your home meets modern standards.

Contemporary Floor Plans & Innovative Building Processes

Contemporary Floor Plans & Innovative Building Process

We’ll design contemporary floor plans that meet your needs, whether you’re part of an active family or you prefer your home to be a marvelous showplace of design and décor—or somewhere in-between.

And that’s only a small part of the myriad reasons you should buy a new, custom home in Tennessee through Carbine and Associates.

Our innovative building process, which takes place in three phases (feasibilitydesign, and construction) takes all the guesswork out of building a custom home.

We’ll partner with you to ensure you’re getting exactly what you need, and we’ll be there to walk you through each step of the process.

Creating the Perfect Space From the Ground Up

We can build your dream home; all you need to do is share your vision, and we’ll make it a reality. But we’ll take things one step further. Once you’ve settled on the perfect floor plan, we’ll contact you about your initial appointment with a professional interior designer. You’ll be able to transform your already-spectacular home into an exceptional showplace that belongs on the pages of a magazine.
