About Donnelly Developments

Our company was created for one reason: change the home building experience. Most people dream of building their own home only to be disappointed in the entire process. They find that the builder, usually a large nationwide company, only offers a limited number of selections and does not allow any modifications to their plans. You have to choose everything in your home during a single “design” meeting and are not allowed to make any changes after this short meeting. You have all kinds of design ideas, but nobody is willing to consider them or work with you to achieve your goal. You are basically buying a home instead of truly building one. It’s easy to get discouraged when you see that your dream of building a home is not as fun as you had planned.

We understand that every person is unique, and their home should reflect that. We don’t just build you a house, we build your dream home. You deserve custom and we are here to help. 

At Donnelly Developments we understand that most people have no idea how to start the building process. We have set out to simplify the entire process with the goal of working with our clients to achieve their dreams. When you call us we take the time to talk to you about your wants and needs. We will set up a time to get together with your builder who can walk you through the entire process. When we listen to everything that you want in a home and prepare a preliminary budget based on the floor plan that you choose.

If you don’t have a floor plan we can assist you in finding one, using one of ours, or working with our architect to draw one from scratch. We get a general idea of what kind of features you like and prepare an estimate based on your desires. We don’t make you choose all of your selections for the home while sitting in an office. Our budget will show you how much you have to spend on all of your finishes to stay in the budget you provide and then you get to pick them out.

If you want to spend more or less than we have budgeted in your estimate than you simply pay the difference.

We don’t upcharge you or make a profit based on what you want to put in your home. In fact, the biggest difference you will find is that we work off of a flat fee, not a cost plus method. The cost plus method basically means that you pay the builder an extra 15% for everything that you choose for your house. 

Our estimates are 100% transparent. We will show you exactly what the builders fee is and you will never have to pay us another penny once the contract is signed.

We are here to help you from the initial consultation, floor plan selections, design choices, and every step of the way until you are in your brand new home.
