“From the very beginning, we were pleasantly surprised by the friendliness, research, plans and ideas that were put forth. Everything was done in a timely manner. They were available anytime by phone to answer questions and concerns, even coming back out to the site several times to explain and discuss our concerns. Creative Home Concepts made this experience the best and most exciting thing that happened to us.” —Tom & Glena

– Richmond Times Dispatch “Homes” – July 2013

Southern Living Creative Home Concepts has been building in the greater Richmond area for almost 20 years. And while many builders may build Southern Living plans, only a select few are designated as Southern Living Custom Builders.Creative Home Concepts is the only builder in the greater Richmond area with that distinction. Only the finest custom home builders are invited to be part of this network. Creative Home Concepts is a family owned operation that was established in 1996 by Bryan Smith and Shannon Horan. As a brother/sister team, they work closely with each and every buyer to offer a unique home building experience. Bryan feels that the Southern Living designation offers more than a portfolio of plans. “Being part of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program means that we highly value the satisfaction of our clients, and that we work to make sure our plans and finished homes are of outstanding quality. We value our client’s interest in building their custom home and respect the financial responsibility involved in the process.”In the past, many custom home builders were limited in neighborhoods in which to build. Creative Home Concepts has many options available for those looking to design their next home. As one of the original builders in Hallsley in Midlothian, they are moving forward with this East West neighborhood as it evolves into a premiere community. They are also partnering with Bel Arbor Builders on the final home sites available in one of Henrico County’s most desirable locations in the Raleigh neighborhood, including a limited number of lakefront home sites. Their work in widely known throughout Powhatan County as well. Cedar Green in the heart of Powhatan country was developed in part by Creative Home Concepts and offers a limited number of home sites ranging from 2 to 27 acres.
Although the structural components of a house are important to its value, the interior finishes can truly personalize each of their custom homes. Shannon works with each buyer to help deliver a true custom home that matches the individuals’ taste and personality. ‘We want the experience to be truly satisfying. Many of our homeowners come from personal referrals and we take great pride in delivering a home that exceeds expectations.” The excitement of designing a new home is one that is shared by many of Creative Home Concept’s buyers. Ken and Toni Jones, new Hallsley homeowners, continue to be delighted by their new home. “Bryan and Shannon made the design and building process exciting and rewarding. We felt that we were in complete control of our new house design. Our first days in our new home were like an Easter Egg Hunt as we discovered the many touches that they had included without our asking.
