The Design Studio

Choosing the features of your home is one of the most exciting steps in your homebuilding journey – and our new Design Studio helps make the selection process simpler, more efficient, and stress-free.

Reserved exclusively for those building an EGStoltzfus home, our Design Studio experience inspires customers to personalize their home just as they envisioned it, with expert guidance from our team.


Your Studio Experience

We make your design studio experience efficient (and fun!) by breaking the process down into three simple steps:

Virtual Shopping. After choosing your home plan and investment level, your studio experience starts with remote shopping in our Guide to Personalization. You can compare included features and available options before your first visit to the studio.

Design Studio Preview. Next, you’ll attend a Design Studio Preview, where staff will introduce you in-person to the design choices you’ve considered from your Guide.

Selection Appointment. Finally, you’ll meet with your Design Studio Consultant at your Selection Appointment – finalizing your choices and completing the vision for your new home!
