No. The cost is the same whether through an Authorized Heritage Builder or direct. What is not, is the SERVICE and extra special attention you receive from your distributor during this critical time. Those who advertise “buy factory direct and SAVE” only tell you part of the story. What they fail to mention is that they simply keep the profits, most used for service to run expensive ‘buy direct’ ad campaigns. Heritage Builder/Distributors receive hours of professional training on everything from design techniques, to how to handle service after the sale. Their main mission is to custom build a home for your family, while making the experience enjoyable.
