Custom home design in Colorado Springs

Building a custom or luxury home is an exciting and rewarding experience when you choose the right builder and home site. But even choosing the right homesite begins with the design of your new home. You may not have the design formalized yet, but the type and style of home you want to build is really the first thing in your mind. Everyone can envision the home of their dreams before the process even begins.

There’s a story of a famous sculptor who was given the task of creating a sculpture of an animal out of a large piece of stone. As he was chiseling away his friend asked him what he was doing. He replied, “I’m trying to get the bird out.” The sculptor saw what no one else could see. In the same way, it’s our job at Albano Homes to bring your dream to a reality. When looking at a raw homesite, we see what many others can’t see. We are here to help you see the final product, even before it begins.
