Builder Program

Builders may inquire for discounts on volume orders for spec built homes or semi-custom design for pre-build contracts. John Henry Architect has developed award-winning plans for spec builders that have consistently placed in first and second categories for Best of Show including recognized Street of Dreams programs as well as in HBA sponsored events. Show-homes typically have sold in framing stages or within a few weeks of CO with numerous presales resulting from show models. We can offer schematic plans and elevations only for projects up to 4,000 SF. For those in luxury categories we can provide a more complete set of drawings up to Permit Set documents.

We work closely with a builder's staff and become an integral part of his or her marketing efforts. Your standards and details can be part of a new design or we can offer entirely new ideas for you to incorporate in terms of floor-planning, exterior style, and interior space sculpting. What is important is that you rise ahead of your competition through innovation and up to date marketing features. Our goal is to help insure your development objectives by maintaining the highest professional and creative efforts in our fields. Each builder on our client list has achieved acclaim and increased market share, catapulting his or her business as a result of combined efforts.

John Henry Architect is a proven leader in residential design. The hot buttons that we integrate into smaller plans are ideas generated from larger designs. In the SEBC 1991 regional awards program the Mediterranean style Viscaya model built by Jones/ Clayton in Orlando, Florida won the Grand Aurora Award. In 1997 the same builder entered Valmoreal (designed with Bernie Johnson, photo below right), a Gothic two story design in Phillips Landing, which won Best of Show in that year's Street of Dreams program.

Phillips landing.TIF (10281190 bytes)Our most recent spec home was designed for IBK Construction, a 5,700 SF 'Casa' in Lake Nona subdivision Orlando.  The real estate office was so ecstatic about the design they said:  "This is just super, a perfect design.   We should have no problem pre-selling it for Ira."--- and "John, I wanted to call and tell you that this plan looks awesome;  I like how the Foyer has privacy from the Living Room which is just the right size and balances the Family Room.  The winding stair should be spectacular." (Scott Hall and Roddy Owen)  In addition the Review Board admitted that "...the exterior elevations embody a rich character which will be a source of pride in the Lake Nona Community."  This project has currently been sold in the framing stage.  A second spec sold as well, the third is under construction.  Follow another builder's success and a showcase home under construction here!

A beautiful design inspired in a Country-French style and located on a pristine lake in a gated community, this project includes many hot-buttons. The Custom pre-sale client especially liked the exterior pre-cast concrete trim (faux-finished) which looks like natural stone. Concrete tile roofing imitates slate. The hand-worked stucco finish is particularly appealing.

The period architecture with a turret entry is particularly striking. Two story spaces in the Foyer, Living, Dining, and Family expand the spatial effect making the home feel larger. An over garage bonus room offers multi-use space. A �brain room� is accessible to all family members.

Special interior details include: Hand painted vault in Foyer, custom built-in cabinetry in Den, ceramic tile floors, wrought iron rail on grand stairway, and pecky-cypress wood detailing. A combination of arches and octagonal geometries enliven interior space. Balconies upstairs and overlooks make for dynamic interior and exterior views. Although a professional interior designer was not retained, the builder made excellent cabinetry and floor-finishing selections, harmonizing the spaces and details throughout.

The southern exposure lets in plenty of light, controlled through decks and large window areas. A gazebo pergola is the centerpiece of a multi-level pool overlooking a bluff with views to the lake. A walk-down deck  offers a boat dock for water sports.

This speculatively built home sold in the framing stages, a testament to the marketing and design savvy of architect and builder.
