I would also recommend Strohm Construction. Kirk Strohm has built several homes in Saddlebrooke and has just opened a office/product display area below the Saddlebrooke convenience store right off hiway 65.

He built our home and we are happy with the quality, the process, and the follow thru.
He is, however, pretty laid back. We've done a lot of additional work on a handshake...& are still very happy.

Another builder in Saddlebrooke is North Brothers. We have seen some of their work and it looks good. They are known for their woodworking in particular. Lots of beautiful custom wood finishes. Construction seems solid.

Saddlebrooke - Home Builders ... thank you so much for the list of builders. This list will be helpful as we get closer to selecting a house builder. Also, we are going to fly in for the annual Home Builder's Association (HBA) Parade of Homes in June 20, 21, 22 and the weekend of June 27,28, 29 of the summer of 2008.

Default SW MO Zoning

Hello, Hope this information helps. Most of SW MO does not have zoning or they have performanance zoning. Larger metropolitain areas and/or small areas with planned zoning determine growth and growth patterns with zoning. This area does not. Each lot would have to go before the county zoning and if they decided they didn't want to allow this builder / developer to continue, he'ld be stopped for lack of permits. If a developer wants complete and total control of what is in and around him, he'ld incorporate and it is legal. It's just this developers way to control his project and have the least governmental intervention. If you'ld like to verify, call the county and speak to the local zoning authorities.

Hello,
Recently got interested in researching all of the details associated with making a move from So. Calif. My wife and I purchased a lot in Saddlebrooke for a future retirement spot. I really appreciate your comments / information on the area, partic.
S.B.

Re: the list of contractors, do any of them have websites? Since I know very little about building a home, partic. being out of state when we do this, I like surveying initially via pics and general information.

Thanks in advance for your response.
Mark

Red face Probably not...

I don't think you'll find any of the local builders having web sites...at least down here in the Branson/Table Rock Lake area.

This is a series of small towns that just happen to be near some pretty cool entertainment/resort/vacation destinations...so we don't have much in the way of "production" builders that throw up 100 houses each year. Most of our builders build 5-10 homes each year!

Small town living...at it's finest.

Default Welcome to Saddlebrooke..almost

Welcome...both to the forum and to Saddlebrooke. In what neighborhood is your lot located? Zoltani and BarbHarp also bought a lot out here and they were out visiting this past week. They joined us for our OTFCC meet and I can say that they are going to be GREAT ex-cali neighbors when they finally move here. They even have friends who ended up buying a lot...the more the merrier. They did alot of interviewing and investigating on builders so you may want to PM them to see what they learned.

You go under 65, loop around and come out at a convenience store, where you can turn south. It's kind of a round-about way of doing it, but better than nothing, I guess.

Personally, I am not a big fan of covenants and restrictions, which I am sure that Saddlebrook has in spades. I've lived in subdivisions where the POA/HOA is breathing down your neck and it's not a nice feeling. If the OP doesn't care, well, to each his own, but it certainly isn't any place I would care to live.

Saw that entrance this past week as was motoring south towards cabin that rented near Silver Hill, Arkansas - did look both impressive and convoluted. LOL, while I can appreciate and understand the needs of such in a development, yea I too am the kind of person that doesn't cater to additional rules and regs of what others dictate about my property - that is why this hillbilly has always and shall remain rural.
