The Spanns Share Their Story of Building a Custom Home with Tilson Homes

Customer Stories

Kelly and Mark Spann have a beautiful 3-acre property with a lake view in Navarro County. They had owned the property for 11 years prior to choosing a builder to help them make their dream home a reality. They chose Tilson Homes because of our experience building on customers' land and our flexibility in helping them make changes to achieve their dream home. The Spanns were able to select every detail in their home, from the size of the rooms to the placement of the porches for the perfect view.

A Dream to Build on Their Land

The Spanns have always dreamed of building their own home on their land by the lake. They thought it would be a retirement project, but when they saw a Tilson Homes sign that said "build on your own land," they decided to call and inquire. Now, their dream has come true and they couldn't be happier. Their new Tilson home in Navarro County has a beautiful view of the lake all the way around. It truly is their dream come true.

Designing the Home of Their Dreams

They went to Tilson's Design Center in Melissa to tour the models. The Spanns talked to the Tilson team and felt like it was meant to be. Cheyenne, their sales consultant, made it easy to customize the things they wanted. She rearranged all of the interior walls to achieve Kelly's two non-negotiable spaces: a Christmas tree closet and a butler's pantry. We were able to make these additions and Kelly is extremely happy with how it turned out. For Mark, Cheyanne designed the perfect three-car garage and a wraparound porch, as well as a big island in the kitchen. 

A Beautiful Home for the Family to Enjoy

The original goal was to build their lake home for retirement. Because they aren't completely retired yet, it acts as a second house. It's a vacation home where they can bring their whole family and visit with friends. They rest on the beautiful porch and take in the views of the lake. They've also been able to let friends stay there for a getaway.

The Spanns are so happy with their new Tilson home and would recommend us to anyone who is looking to build on their own land. They loved the process of working with Tilson Homes and being able to customize every detail of their home.
