When we set out to build a home, we had very clear expectations for our home and builder. Most importantly, we wanted our home to be within our budget. We needed a builder to give us an exact cost for every single element before we could proceed. McGowan built did just that. At the end of the whole process we came in very close to budget. Another expectation for our builder was great communication. We wanted to hear about every detail and be included in all decision making. John and Misti did a great job of communicating with us throughout the process. While other big builders in the NWA area will actually charge thousands of dollars to communicate during the building process, John and Misti were always available to talk. Lastly, we wanted our home built quickly and efficiently. Other builders we spoke with estimated +9 months for a custom home, but the McGowans had ours built in 7 months (including significant land prep/tree removal) We really appreciate the work they did for us. We would definitely use McGowan Built in future projects!
