Custom home construction is at an all-time high, presumably influenced by a low inventory of homes and unprecedented low interest rates despite the current fluctuating costs of materials and labor. Simply put? There isn’t a better time than now to build a new home in Chapel Hill.

Chapel Hill has three of what will be six new single-family model floor plans from Kansas City’s leading building companies open now to tour, along with a new furnished model villa home in Chapel Hill’s new limited maintenance-provided area. All model homes are open daily until 5 p.m.
