Sponsored: Build the foundation for your dream home with Jimmy Jacobs seminar

Jimmy Jacobs Custom Homes is sharing their design and building expertise with the public on Sunday, March 17. The free, informational Build-On-Your-Lot seminar will take place at their model home in Crystal Falls, located in Leander. These seminars are open to anyone either in the process of, or interested in, building a custom home in the future. From noon to 2 p.m., the seminar will focus on all aspects of starting and completing a dream home. This includes a deep look into the construction process, financing options, energy-efficient products, the benefits of using American-made products and much more.

Held only a few times a year, the Build-On-Your-Lot seminar is led by two of Jimmy Jacobs’ Build-On-Your-Lot specialists and is designed to guide attendees through the many stages of the home-building process. These stages involve lot selection, plan development, design selections, construction and more.

Additionally, the Jimmy Jacobs’ team highlights the latest energy-efficient products, which save homeowners money during the construction process and beyond. Also highlighted is the Made in America program, where Jimmy Jacobs Custom Homes incorporates 70 percent American-made materials and labor into construction.

If you would like to attend the Build-On-Your-Lot seminar, from Austin, take US-183 N and exit onto 183A Frontage Road; Turn left onto County Rd. 272/Crystal Falls Pkwy and continue on as Crystal Falls Pkwy becomes Goodnight Trail; Turn Right onto High Lonesome and take a Left onto Lions Lair where the home will be on the Left.
