Blue Ocean Luxury Homes is proud to be part of the Arthur Rutenberg Homes family of homebuilders. Our builder, Doug Durrant, has been building homes for more than 30 years. You will have his attention along with the attention of the rest of our dream team! Our talented team of professionals include several licensed builders with decades of experience. They will be managing your project both in-house and in the field. We pride ourselves on the fact that our customers will be hand-held throughout the entire building process with a team who will be on your job site daily working with our trade partners to build your dream home.
We are a custom homebuilder and offer a unique way for you to customize your home. We encourage you to choose one of your favorite floorplans from our large inventory of homes. We start with that base floor plan and customize it from there. This helps us both have better predictability of cost during the building process. We have access to two Architectural teams who are very familiar with our award winning home designs. With a $500 – $1000 good-faith deposit, we can customize your home and give you the layout you desire. That deposit will be credited back to you when you choose to build with us. We call this our “Personalized Floor Plan Service”. While our designers are working on your custom floor plan, we will create a detailed quote indicating your personalized requests. This quote offers complete detail right down to the product number of the towel rack! We are a fixed fee builder, with very few allowances. Our clients know exactly what they are paying for before any document is signed or trading has commenced. We have a fantastic design studio that is professionally staffed. You will spend two days with our interior designer who will help you choose the colors for your home – Another great service you receive when you build with us. We don’t send our clients all over the place for selections!
We Keep In Touch
During the construction of your home we will share pictures and progress with you via your personal “Customer Portal” site. This is a site for our registered customers to access all their photos and documents, including Quotes, Job Selections, Finish Selections, Customer Statement of Account, Proposed Options, Design Studio Proposals, Sales Orders and Invoices. You are also welcome to visit the job site at anytime!
Arthur Rutenberg Homes is known for building a quality luxury home. We go above and beyond normal building code and in addition to the quality workmanship, we offer our clients this Credo: If, within ten years of closing on your new home, a problem occurs which you believe is caused by a defect in original workmanship, we want to hear from you. We will inspect the problem, and if we agree, we will correct it without charge.
