Building the home you really want is partly about finding the right home design, but mostly about finding the right builder.

For many, the ideal builder is one who will encourage you to make more of the decisions along the way about home design and architectural detail that, in the end, give you a home that meets both your family's needs and its wants.

Ralph Zuckerman takes the concept of semi-custom home building to another level for his customers. The award-winning home builder and president of Avalon Building Corp., not only involves his customers in the enjoyable decisions for making a home exactly theirs, but his customer-first approach also allows for adjustments and changes, resulting in a home that fits that family perfectly.

And the icing on the cake? Zuckerman builds these truly semi-custom homes at reasonable prices.

"We will build you an affordable semi-custom home on your lot or ours, just the way you want it," Zuckerman said.

"Starting with great award-winning plans and having a company philosophy for building how you want, where you want at an affordable price is a win-win situation all around."

Avalon has been building homes in the Tampa Bay area for 16 years and has won multiple awards for its home designs nearly every year along the way, totaling more than 70 awards. Over that time, Avalon has built a reputation not only for quality construction, but for accommodating every customer need and desire in order to build homes that meet a family's every living need.

Avalon is known for specializing in semi-custom building (taking existing plans and altering them to fit homebuyers' needs) and for building on your lot or one of theirs.

"So many customers have told us they love our homes and really liked being able to make small, and sometimes large, changes to meet their families' living needs and get even more enjoyment out of their new homes," Zuckerman said. "We're glad to make changes to plans to make the house your family's home, whether it's on your lot or on one of ours. Our reputation is for quality.

"Having a building partner who will accommodate for every customer need and desire, wherever possible, helps make it a fun experience and helps you enjoy your home even more because of those personalized features or changes you were able to put in it."

Avalon offers home plans that range from 1,800 to more than 4,200 square feet of living space. Homes on your lot start at $89 per square foot and includes beautiful architectural details throughout the home that Avalon is known for providing, plus including many upgraded features as standard, such as gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, Corian bathroom countertops, all-wood cabinets, energy efficient double paned low-e windows, and much more, Zuckerman said.

Building on your lot means you have the flexibility to build in existing planned communities or on your half-, one-, or multi-acre home sites, whichever best suits your desires, he said.

"Avalon is accustomed to the nuances and added management necessary to build on your lot," he said. "We are happy to take a look at your site and give you feedback and answer any questions. Give us a call."

While reasonable prices, quality construction and customized design details should be enough to entice you to take a closer look at Avalon, your choice of up to $15,000 in upgrades thrown into the mix might be the clincher. As an extra incentive, Avalon is offering for a limited time $15,000 in upgrades when you buy one of its newly constructed homes in selected communities and on your lot.

"This is a great opportunity to fill your home with even more extras," Zuckerman said. "Come see our furnished model in beautiful Seven Oaks and take advantage of this upgrade offer while it lasts."
