If you’ve ever done a little channel surfing on the TV, you’re sure to find a dozen shows focused on home renovations. Home remodeling is all the rage nowadays. However, when contemplating a whole home remodel, you need more than the DIY network can provide. At Joy Design + Build, the process to amend your current home is not dissimilar to that of building a custom home from the ground up. Let’s start a conversation about creating a lifestyle solution for your home.

A Lesson on Lots

We offer a “build on your lot” program for home buyers that wish to build on their own property. Joy Design + Build will construct a custom home specifically to fit on your lot. Alternatively, if you do not currently own a lot, but wish to purchase one, finding an ideal home site can sometimes be a hassle and an exercise in humility. At Joy Design + Build, we are often approached by developers, realtors and individuals with fantastic opportunities for tear downs before they are ever published on Bright Multiple Listing System (MLS). In addition, we have a robust prospecting program in practically every neighborhood in the McLean and Arlington areas, which provides us with undisclosed and unavailable market knowledge about future lot availability. Let us know where you want to build you dream home, and we’ll scour the earth until we find the ideal lot for your inspired investment by Joy Design + Build.

Entertaining is a life skill and should not be confined to the interior square footage of your home.
Quality isn’t expensive; it’s priceless.
A well-designed space is never complete without your personal history laced throughout.
The best spaces pay equal consideration to comfort and style.
A library is not a luxury, but a necessity of life.
Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love.
