Standard Features

Southern Lifestyle Homes offers standard features that are upgrades with most other builders. We build the best home on the market from the ground up. The quality of our homes is not merely cosmetic. Of course, we design and outfit our homes with the best interior styling, but our homes have the feel of quality craftsmanship when you walk in the door. Our homes are built to exceed code standards from the foundation to the roof and the insulation to the plumbing. All of this attention to detail results in the most solid house you can buy… one that will minimize common home owner headaches, and be suitable for your needs for a long time.
