A Peek Inside Our Commitment to Quality

Posted by Dornhomes on Dec 10, 2018 2:17:17 PM

Building a brand new home is a major step for most people, no matter where you are in life. You may be selling an existing home, securing financing, and changing cities, and those are all steps you’ll take before you even start designing your new home. After you’ve chosen your model and met with our professional interior designers in our state-of-the-art Design Center, we get to work building your dream home. All of that work planning, and building culminates in one moment: the moment you step through the front door. We understand just how important that moment is.

When you live in Cottonwood, you’re only a few minutes from all of the restaurants, art galleries, and wineries that Old Town has to offer. With so much to do in Old Town, we thought we’d share some of our favorite spots.
