I came across an article about upgrading a builder’s home and thought, “wouldn’t it be nice to not have to upgrade what you pay thousands of dollars for”? And as I scrolled through Pinterest, I kept seeing “DIY upgrades for builder standards,” “upgrade builder bathroom mirrors,” and “10 inexpensive ways to update a builder-grade home.”

But what if your new home already had those upgrades?

I was car shopping a few months ago and at one particular high-end dealer, I was asking about specific elements of the car which (in my opinion) seemed cheap and were not meeting what I expected a luxury automobile would have as part of their package. Additionally, I was told a few times that they couldn’t upgrade for me, but I could do it myself after I purchased the car. Why, if I’m spending $60,000 on a car, do I then have to go and find someone who would be willing to do something for me after market?

If I’m paying good money, I expect a good product.

So what if you got your new home with those builder upgrades, but at the price of what others charge for their standard selections? At Silverthorne, you get just that. We pride ourselves in redefining the builder standard. You don’t get one of our houses to only have to do more work, when you walk into your new home all you have to do is unpack and enjoy. So what do some of those standard options include? This list covers some of them, but for a comprehensive explanation based on the house you select, contact our sales team for more information.

  • Nest thermostatKitchen with white cabinets and large island
  • Optional rounded corners
  • 42-inch cabinets in a variety of colors (including white)
  • Hardwood floor
  • Granite counters
  • 9-foot basement ceilings
  • Zip system

When you get a Silverthorne home, there’s no extra work, no extra projects. You get a custom house at the standard builder’s price. So let’s get started. Browse our gallery to see what some of these standards look like.
