Building your first new home doesn’t have to be difficult, and with the new Excel Homes Starting Lineup series, it isn’t. The Starting Lineup series features smaller homes with all the style of what is typically found in a larger floor plan and is designed specifically with the first-time homebuyer in mind. These basic homes can be shipped on a single carrier and the completion of the home is simple enough that in most cases, it can be finished by the set crew.
The Craftsman Bungalow harkens to the simple designs of the Sears kit homes from the 1930s and ‘40s. These proven plans were widely built more than half a century ago but are still widely sought after and treasured by homeowners today. The Craftsman Bungalow of this series makes se of the basic plan and characteristics of that beloved style, but opens the kitchen, living room and dining areas for a more modern open living space.
The Craftsman Bungalow is designed as a starter home or a simple guest cottage and offers high quality amenities at an economical cost point. The standard home comes complete with many upgrade options as standard features, including hardwood floors, hard surface countertops, mission style trim and a whole house fan.
