I am in the process of buying a house in Fieldstone. We decided to get one of the 50" with Brighton. They do have lots left and are building several inventory homes so your options will be limited depending on the floor plan you use. The person we are working with mentioned that they are going to open a new section but did not provide a date.

If you are buying in 2013 they will probably have homes but like everyone else suggested that's a long time period and things can change.

Hope that helps.

My wife and I just got a home built there. We signed our contract on February 14th, 2012 (Happy valentine's day for us) and the house was finished by may 23rd. That is crazy fast! We built with Meritage as their 2 story houses were better than their one story (who puts laundry and pantry areas together?? - crazy). In any case, we had a really nice experience. The agent and the construction manager were always available with any questions we had (via email or phone) and anything we didn't like they fixed. Whenever buying a home from Meritage, I recommend going to see the progress every weekend (they don't work sat/sunday) and take notes on what you think needs improvement. You can call them on monday (they promise to call you every monday with updates, but you better call them to "remind them") and pass on your "list" and you will find it fixed by the next week. We got the 45 feet lot and our backyard is 41x45 feet (we have small dogs) and is more than enough. I found the whole process very stress-free. As with anything, this is a man-made product and will not be perfect (I am not very happy about some of the painting work, but it will do), in fact you may find a lot of little things once you start doing things to the house (we painted some of the walls in accent colors). All in all, for this being our first home, we are quite pleased. We made sure to get a lot as far away as possible from the entrance and it is very, very quiet.

Good luck getting a new home!

Brighton is a builder in my subdivision and we always walk their houses that are unlocked to look at the quality. I must say I am usually not very impressed with it. Stud have lots of nails poking through from mistrikes, back porch is pulling off the hardy board from the wall because it is not supported correctly. All in all I am not very impressed with them.

This was not my experience with them. They've done a good job and when my inspector or myself found issues they were quick to correct them. With that said I have been extremely involved during the construction process. I visited the site every other day and documented everything to the builder with pictures and emails.

I will also add that I think it really depends who the contractors performing the work are. Some are good some are bad. Whenever I went to visit the property I politely spoke to them in spanish, since they all spoke spanish, and provided them with water, gatorade, etc. They were very appreciative and did a good job on the home. Those guys work very hard on the TX hear and I think a little appreciation/thanks does go a long way for them to give the extra mile.

I have to say so far so good. Happy with the way things are going.

Field Stone is very close to Grand Mission and i think you can buy more houses for the money in Grand Mission. Both communities are very similar.

If I had to choose between Fieldstone and Grand Mission I would go with Fieldstone. More aesthetically pleasing and Grand Mission is getting a bad rep for stuff that goes on in that community.

I was just looking at all these old posts for Fieldstone. It's like a time capsule. People speculating and going back and forth. It's very interesting. Let's fast forward to 2015. The area is booming. Tons of new businesses are coming to this area and they have expanded home building to 4 new sections. We have also seen an increase in property value of about 17% in one year alone, which has killed me on taxes. Lol.

I looked at fieldstone and decided to build a home in the neighboring community waterview estates in the new section. One main reason was fieldstone was only offering either 40' or 45' lots in our price range. This is incredibly small.

my coworkers owned a home in Fieldstone. They didn't like their home. They have been living in this house for 6 years but never hung a picture on the wall. Because they always thinking to sell the house. The house always problem, for example, ceiling leak, the backdoor is rotten after a couple years, they have to reinstall a new door, they have to fix a lot of things around the house so they hate their house. The builder was filing bankruptcy and sold it to other builder. So they lost their warranty or whatever they said. Anyway, I would never move there.
