Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How long does it take to build a home?

Our contract states we have 120 days from the day we receive the permit to build your house. There are many factors that can affect this schedule like, inspections, weather, and installation of utilities, but we generally are able to keep very close to the 120 days.

Question: Where do you build your custom homes?

We currently build our custom homes in Southeastern New Mexico.

Customization FAQ

Question: Can you move interior walls?

Yes, we can absolutely work with you to modify room sizes, add bedrooms, eliminate walls, or make any other changes to suit your needs.

Question: Can we make changes to the floor plans? What if we like the kitchen in one plan and want to move it into another floor plan?

Yes, we will work with you to see what is possible and will do our best to make a home that is uniquely yours.

Question: Can we change the exterior look of the house?

Yes, our standard exterior features a pitched roof, but we can give a house a southwestern look with a flat roof, vigas and lentils on the windows, or we make it look like a log cabin with a faux log exterior and faux stone.

Question: Can I do my own plumbing, tile-work, foundation, etc.? Or, leave the home unfinished and finish it myself including the sheetrock and painting?

ABS will work with you to plan the level of completion you want us to perform on your home. Please consider that that our licensed and insured subcontractors provide us very competitive pricing which allows us to pass-on the savings to you. Also consider that building a home requires close coordination and safety and quality related inspections as required by the building permit rules for your area. Any coordination or quality snafus may cause time delays and add extra costs. Come in and let us know what you would like to do and we would be more than happy to discuss what is possible.

Question: Do you do “Custom” Homes or Re-models?

Yes, ABS can construct any home you can obtain plans for. Have an idea for a home but want a ground-up design? ABS can work with your architect or can recommend a designer to help you flesh out your ideas while we turn them into reality. Have an existing home you want to add-on to or want a kitchen or bathroom remodel? Come by our show room today and see and touch our samples and talk to one of our home consultants about your dreams and needs.

 Finance FAQ

Do you provide financing?

No, ABS does not have an in-house financing arm, but we do partner with local banks that are well-versed in construction and permanent loan packages.
