Frequently Asked Questions

What seems to be an average square foot price today?

This question depends on a lot of different factors including location, amenities, finishes, materials used, etc. When meeting with Gallup & LaFitte we can get a better idea of the type of home you are looking for within your budget restraints. This information will help us determine a reasonable cost per square foot for your particular home.

The building process depends on location, weather, soil conditions, and the design of the home itself. During our design meeting we can get a better idea of the type of home you want and the average time frame to complete. Most of our homes take 8 to 10 months for design, build and completion.

Are you a builder as well?

Yes. Gallup &LaFitte services include the entire building process from design to construction to remodeling.

Can we bring in our own plans?

Yes. Having a plan in mind will give us a better idea of what you are looking for in a home even if we can't build that specific plan due to location or space concerns.

The first step would be to set up a preliminary meeting at Gallup & LaFitte so we can get to know each other and explore the ideas you have for your home. The more we can envision what you see the more in sync the building process will be.

Yes. Once finishes and color selections are being chosen we have several experts in this area that can help you choose the right look for your home.

There are several things you should look for when choosing a builder. Experience, examples of work, customer recommendations, licenses and awards. Gallup & LaFitte has all of those things and has over 11 years of custom home construction experience. Examples of our work can be found all over Lake Murray and we would be happy provide you with references from previous projects.

That's why we're here! Gallup & LaFitte not only builds and remodels but we specialize in design work. We will work with you to create the perfect home based on your individual wants and needs.

This is a valid concern and one that needs to be addressed up front. Gallup & LaFitte can take your plan and make the necessary measurements to ensure the plan fits. If it does not fit, the original plan can be used as a template to create a custom plan for your lot.
