Pratt Homes is excited to launch its first Follow My Home project. This is an exciting project where we build a brand new home and you get to follow along as we build it. Derek and Heidi have graciously allowed up to document the building of their home on Facebook and Pinterest. You can follow along on Facebook and the Pratt Homes blog for updates on the building process and you can follow along on Pinterest to see all of the appliances, carpeting, fixtures, lamps, flooring, cabinets, etc that the new homeowners have chosen for their home.

The Follow My Home project is designed to be a resource anyone can access and use to help plan, manage and improve their new home project. These are just some of the steps you’ll get to follow as we go about building this lovely new 3 bedroom home in White Bear Lake:

  • Groundbreaking
  • Laying the Foundation
  • Framing
  • Flooring
  • Countertops
  • Light Fixtures & Electrical
  • Exterior Siding
  • Plumbing Fixtures
  • Trim & Cabinets
  • Appliances
  • Final Touches & Finishing

Derek and Heidi decided to build a new home because they wanted home that was in their desired location and wanted a home that met their individual and unique criteria – something they couldn’t find in an existing home.

“Choosing Pratt was easy. We were familiar with the quality and excellence of a Pratt home and equally important was the fact that we knew and trusted the people behind Pratt. When it came to trusting someone to build our new home (and sell our existing home) we considered Pratt to be the “dream team.”  Len, Jeanine and Mandy were always a step ahead providing options and resources for us to consider. Being okay with something was not good enough, they encouraged us to love every decision along the way.

From the beginning, Pratt listened to what was important to us. Once we chose our lot, they allowed us to do the research we needed to ensure we developed a floor plan that was perfect. They were patient, offered resources and advice until we got it just right.

The design phase at Pratt was dreamy!  Joy and Art quickly learned that we had an opinion about everything – from toilet seats to light fixtures and everything in between. They made that okay and we were able to truly build a custom home.  We had numerous short design session where we concentrated on one or two areas. They brought options to us and we were able to choose selections to create our perfect home.  Advice and professional guidance was a part of this and when we got stuck, they dug deeper to find more options until we landed on a perfect choice.  These were big decisions for us and each time we would return, Joy would have our previous selections laid out so we could adjust items that didn’t feel just right.

It has been a wonderful experience to work with exceptional people who go above and beyond to ensure our new home exceeds our expectations. Each person we encounter is made out of the same mold – honest, skilled and reliable. This culture extends to the contractors we worked with.  They spoke about the honor it was to be a part of the Pratt team and offered the same exceptional qualities that defines Pratt.” – Derek and Heidi
