Discover how you can be happy in a million ways when you choose a new Steiner home for the holidays.

“I remember when we were little; all of us kids slept upstairs. We have a decorative window on the second floor that overlooks the great room. We would run to it as early as we were allowed and look at our 16-foot Christmas tree with the presents around it.” Molly Steiner, daughter of founder Dan Steiner who now handles marketing for Steiner Homes, said. “Whether you realize it or not, your home will always be in your memories of growing up. If you’re able to build your own home, why not make it a home you love? I love all the little architectural details in my home, like that window, because of all the memories we have built around them.”

From comfortably entertaining a crowd of all ages to an intimate dinner party, a home built by Steiner is thoughtfully planned so you have plenty of space for everyone and everything you need.

“As a custom builder, we work closely with our clients to create the perfect plan for their new home,” Dave Gring, Director of Sales for Steiner Homes, said. “We always welcome customer plans - nearly 20% of our business is full custom - or we have over 40 floor plans that can be modified as needed. We have some lot inventory and also often build on other sites – subdivisions or acreage.”

Thoughtful design features like walk-in closets in most bedrooms, ample linen storage in all the bathrooms and mudrooms with custom-built storage lockers allow you to keep seasonal items well organized and out of the way when company arrives – invited or uninvited – while award-winning trim finishes, architectural ceilings, solid wood flooring and more set the stage for your distinctive décor.

Now through the end of the year, Steiner Homes is offering their biggest promotion of the year – free granite kitchen countertops plus a free upgrade to wide-plank hand-scraped woods AND a free upgrade to 36” upper kitchen cabinets (from 30” to 36”). Call Dave Gring at (219) 916-3744 for complete details and to schedule your personal tour of Steiner’s latest models.
