We are building in Havasu Foothills Estates.
It's going to be a 3100sqft 4 bed 5 bath with a 30x75 RV garage + 2 car and room to build a 15x65 toy garage/Casita in the future. Footings started in Feb

Desert Storm completed ours a couple months ago. He did as promised but hes no conversationalist.
Update Brian did not deliver. Bad business I will never do business with him nor should anybody else. If you don’t fit his narrative he walks. Later dude. Mohave Pools are now my pool contractor.

sounds like he fell in to the ways of most Havasu contractors. He started out hot, delivering on what he says and doing it quick but after the first couple years he began flaking on people, pushing dates over and over and doesn't return calls. We've all seen it happen over and over again here.

I think keeping a team of workers is the biggest problem out there. This is common in Havasu.

Congrats you guys. That is AWESOME!! Looking forward to seeing it come together.

Are you moving there full time or is this a second home? Have you found it's been cheaper to build from scratch rather than buy one pre-built in there? Do you think it's been worth it over all to build from scratch? Sorry if that's too personal, I'm just curious.

Oxley. I'm sure the house will be built good. Oxley has to much stuff on his plate so it takes longer
Thanks. Escrow almost closed on my lot. I know things are crazy right now building, so weighing building vs manafactured. Good thing is the lot is non- HOA, so there's no time limit. Appreciate the info.

We've been here full time since 2017. For me I Started before the building boom so I think it is cheaper the way I'm going Versus buying complete, Plus the house I'm building checks all the boxes. If I started the process today I don't think I would be able to afford the house I'm building.

Love it. Any issues with erosion due to the wash in your backyard?
