There are a number of homes to choose from on a pre-sold or to-be-built basis in Colorado Springs and El Paso County. Because we are a small custom home builder in Colorado Springs, at Albano Homes we often have a spec home for sale. These homes are normally priced between $600,000 and $1,200,000.

With such an array of styles to choose from, the style of your home can be traditional, transitional, lodge, Victorian, mountain industrial, or farmhouse industrial. Square footage can range from 3,400 to 6,000 feet. Our homes are usually situated on 2 ½ acre lots and can be wooded or non-wooded, with or without views of the front range and Pikes Peak, and with or without walkout basements.

Our pre-sold or to-be-built homes are determined completely by our clients who we work with to design their home. From lot purchase, to architectural design, to exterior and interior selections and colors, our clients communicate their needs and desires to us as we bring the home of their dreams to a reality.

We make the home buying and building process simple and easy. When it comes to home cost, we don’t like surprises, and neither should you. From start to finish you always know what the cost of your home will be.


Colorado Springs is one of the fasted growing communities in the country. And when looking for a home site there are plenty of choices, from small city lots, to large acreage in rural areas, and everything in between.

When considering a custom home, most home site choices will be on larger parcels. The more common sizes would be 2 ½ acre lots, although both smaller and larger pieces are available. But in any size home site you can choose from either treed or non-treed lots, with or without views of beautiful Pikes Peak and the Front Range. And unlike many other parts of the country that do not lend themselves to basements or lower level walkouts, you can find sloping lots that will accommodate these options.

But when you consider a home site for a custom home, it’s important to work with a builder in that process. Things like the maximization of views, natural light coming into the home, homesite, driveway, well, septic, and utility locations, as well as passive solar are important. An experienced builder can help guide you in your decision to purchase a homesite so that you get the right one to fit your dream home. The builder can also give you information about the soil conditions of different homesites in different areas that will be helpful in determining youy cost of the home. Some lots may have a history of poorer soil conditions and deeper well depths than other lots in different areas. Knowing this information will help you make your final decision in purchasing a home site.

As you can see, there’s a lot to consider and a lot to choose from when purchasing a home site in Colorado Springs. So if you are thinking about building a custom home here, let Albano Homes help you realize your dream from start to finish.
