Summer Solstice

The Summer Solstice celebrates the joy, warmth and laughter of summer. The beginning of summer represents a time for fun and renewed energy. With the Summer Solstice this weekend, we thought we would share photos of beautiful homes that celebrate fun, joviality, parties, and barbecues with family and friends. Days are longer which gives us more time to enjoy the sun and soak in it's warmth.  What better way to enjoy Summer than on your very own Oakley back porch.  Welcome to paradise.

Twice as Nice - We love Repeat Clients

Oakley Home Builders is having the good fortune of building two homes for repeat customers.  Earlier this week we signed contracts to construct new dream homes for some of our favorite previous clients.

One of the home owners happens to be selling the home with this gorgeous kitchen below.  They are moving on to an Oakley Home with more space and we are excited to see what their next kitchen will look like.  No pressure, but this home has had over 600,000 views on  We can't wait to see how they top that!

We love repeat clients and are looking forward to again building the dream homes of our friends/clients!

Oakley Home Builders Specializes in Value

What are the two biggest complaints that clients have about the custom home construction process?

Number one is lack of organization from their builder, and number two is lack of communication throughout the process. Studies show that they are very displeased with the process (or lack of process) that their builder brought to the project.

At Oakley Home Builders, we specialize in a Design/Build approach to home building.  At the start of the build, we give our clients our step by step guide to an organized, enjoyable custom home construction process.  By the time the project is completed, we will have meticulously covered the
home from top to bottom with our 550 point check list.

At OHB, we maximize home investment through design innovation and expert construction, giving our clients the best of the best.  We value ... value and can't help but build it into everyone of our homes.

Latest Trends for Home Decor

Beauty and comfort go hand in hand when designing and decorating a home.  Unfortunately, they don't just happen! At Oakley Home Builders, we have a team of experts waiting to design your home from the outside to the inside.

Choosing the right windows for the home is important as well as dressing the windows.  Both are essential to great home style.  Whether it be a cool shutter or an elegant drapery, the windows should be a focal point in every room of the home.  And don't forget that trim colors inside and outside of the windows also sets a design tone.

Gorgeous color schemes are vital to the beauty of the home.  Starting from the exterior, the facade of your home dictates the style.  Architectural accents add detail and warmth to both the exterior and interior of the home.  Pops of color throughout the interior lend a modern flair as well as brighten the space.


Tiling a wall is a classic feature that adds refinement and class to an ordinary wall.  Faux finishing can be a practical way to give walls a soft, classy look, while wallpaper lends itself to a decorative finish all it's own.  These finishes are simple ways to continue to provide artistic impression to your wall surfaces.

Let Oakley Home Builders help design and build your dream home for you from start to finish.
