Whalen Custom Homes

Building A Custom Home in St. Louis

When it comes to building a custom home, many people do not know where to begin. Often times, people will engage the services of an architect to begin the design process. Others conduct exhaustive searches for the lot of their dreams or spend countless hours touring tract home developments for ideas. Each of these paths seem intuitive to most, but rarely are the most productive or cost effective measures to begin the custom building process.

We want you to avoid unnecessary costs, or frustrating wastes of time. We would like to offer you FREE consultation meetings, plan sketches, and cost estimates to help you through the nonsense to see if a custom home is the right decision for you. Please take advantage of this opportunity. You have nothing to lose. Even if we are not the right builder for you, you will get some great insight on the process and how to avoid many of the potential "land mines" that people encounter while building a custom home. Please contact us at if you would like to meet for a FREE consultation.

Listed below are the base prices of several of our most popular custom model homes excluding the lot cost. These prices are based on the standard features list for our Bridlewood subdivision. We also have several available custom home lots (and their prices) that we either own or are marketing. Using our base price and the lot price you can get a general idea of what your dream home would cost on a custom lot or your own land in St. Louis. Please bear in mind that there are often site costs associated with custom lots that go above and beyond the purchase price of the lot. The costs include (but are not limited to) utility connection costs, septic tanks, wells, demolition, site remediation costs, and several others. We can help you identify these costs early in your due diligence process to limit the "surprises" and cost over runs. Planning and due diligence are keys to a successful project. Again, let us help you!
