To us, custom means quality. We know the area, love living here and would like to be the first ones to welcome you to the neighborhood.
Communication is important to our team and our process. Our homeowners are not just customers, they are our neighbors that become part of our Bass Built family. Our availability is second to none.
We build our homes above code and with our coastal climate in mind. The products we use and our techniques have proven to increase the structural integrity of our homes.
Not every home is a “Forever Home,” however at Bass Built we build with the future in mind so our homes are enjoyed by the whole family from generation to generation.
While other builders fit your desires into a budgeting software, Bass Built Homes hand picks every recommended detail to include in your custom home plan.
Bass Built Homes built our main level back in 2013. (We built the main level elevated on posts with it open underneath except for a small storage unit.) We let Bryant Bass know our long-term plans of wanting to build out underneath our main level at some point in the future. This required us to bring in fill dirt so the lower level would be above the flood plain so we could obtain an elevation certificate. In 2016 we followed through and added on to our finished living space and also added a two stall garage.
We had been through a couple of weaker hurricanes and tropical storms and had no issues at the house. However, hurricane Florence was a different level of hurricane altogether. We were under a mandatory evacuation order and we evacuated on 9/11/18 when Florence was still a Category 4 storm. Backing out of that driveway and looking at our house for perhaps the last time was a feeling that I hope I don't ever have to experience again. It was an overwhelming feeling. We stayed with good friends in Raleigh for the next 8 days.
We were both lucky and fortunate that our house was built so well by Bass Built Homes. We were lucky since the storm dropped from a category 4 to a 2 and that when the strongest part of the storm went over us, we were on the southern side of the storm. We drove home on Wednesday, 9/19/18. During our drive home, we saw so much devastation. We arrived home to find our home completely intact with no visual damage whatsoever. Upon further inspection, we had no water leaks and didn't even lose a shingle. So many homes had different levels of damage depending on their location and proximity to the ocean and trees. The only damage we sustained was to the door on our fence which can be easily replaced.
We are so thankful and consider ourselves both lucky and fortunate to have chosen Bass Built as our home builder. Our home experienced a true test of the quality of the construction from both a structural standpoint and also being water tight since the wind was driving the rain at upwards of 90 mph. I do highly recommend impact resistant windows since we did not have to put up plywood over our windows. This gave us the time we needed to focus on packing our most important belongings for the evacuation instead of having to buy plywood and then wrestle with putting those heavy pieces up over the windows.
So, in conclusion, we highly recommend Bass Built Homes since they build a high quality home and are a stickler for details to assure your home can withstand Mother Nature. Greg Bell
We love our Kure Beach home constructed by Bass Built! Bryant Bass and his crew were excellent from beginning to end. He worked closely with us, keeping us informed on the progress of our construction. They are ethical, thorough, and easy to communicate with. He was a wonderful resource for any design changes we wanted to make, and for coming up with new ideas as the construction progressed. Any questions or concerns we had were promptly addressed and Ashley, the project manager, is excellent! We are extremely happy with our new home and would absolutely choose Bass Built in the future!
We are so pleased with our new home. We have commented often on how well the house is built. During the framing process, we were so impressed with the quality of workmanship and materials used - often referring to the house as Fort Knox :). Bryant prides himself on building an energy efficient home. We can attest to the fact that he does as our electric bills have been low. It was a pleasure working with the entire team from start to finish.
Over the years I have loved working with Bryant and his team. Ashley has been a pleasure to work with. I am also impressed with their involvement in the community volunteering their time and resources to help those less fortunate. Good work.
