A tile roof is free on all DBU models.
This plan has an impressive entry, foyer, and niches and dining area. Kitchen and breakfast nook designed for informal entertaining within the “great” room.
This Southwestern design has a definite Spanish and Mediterranean flavor. This home is typical of DBU innovations in the use of classical architectural concepts. The new front elevation design puts a touch of formality on traditional southwestern and Mediterranean architecture. Impressive! Unique! A classic!

With these firms, DBU will help you with kitchen design details and cabinet and counter selections. This is important because each home is unique in its own way and deserves a special touch that sets it apart. Our design professionals have the skills and experience to offer unique cabinets, countertops, sinks, faucets, and trim that can define your DBU home and give it those singular qualities you are seeking.
