What's Your Cup of Tea?

Virginia Building Solutions knows that no two people are alike. Many factors go into the decision of what type and style of home you might build. Choosing based on personal preference and your family's lifestyle are obviously the most important considerations, but sometimes other factors can play into your decision. For instance, geography and topography can play a role. Also, if you are building in an existing development, you don't want to have the only two-story home in a community of ranch homes. With Virginia Building Solutions, you have the opportunity to build several types of homes:

Ranches: Native to the United States, ranch-style homes are one-story homes that can have either rectangular or an "L" or "U" shape. The houses have 9/12 or below pitched roof. They also may have an attached or a detached garage and a front gabled porch.

Cape Cods: First seen in New England during the 17th century, the Cape Cod is easily recognizable due to its broad frame building style. These homes are characterized by usually a 12/12 roof pitch and dormers. Generally Cape Cods are classified as a story-and-a-half high home with a habitable bonus area with sloped walls as dictated by the roof pitch.

Two-Story: The simplest definition of a two-story home is that it has an upstairs and a downstairs. The upstairs is usually reserved for bedrooms and baths, but the first level may also have a bedroom.

So, what's your cup of tea? With the ability to customize and build your own plan or to choose from hundreds of floor plans from VBS, the possibilities for your new home are practically endless! View the Virginia Building Solutions' floor plan library.

If you have seen any small leak or any damage to your roof then you should never ignore it. A small leak can damage your whole house and can cause loss of money and human life. Always contact roof repair plantation specialists to solve your roof issue permanently.
