“We look to set ourselves apart through focus on quality as well as innovative and smart floorplans,” said Jen Hughes, co-owner of First Construction Company with her husband, Brian.
In 2013 the couple became the new owners of First Construction Company — which has been in business nearly 25 years — both bringing prior experience in the industry and adding to their team to innovate design concepts and features. Since they took over the company, they have twice won first place awards in the Fall Parade of Homes.
“We feel like we have a really strong team in place,” she said. “One of the reasons our team is successful is that we walk our customers through all of the decisions that go into the building process – to ensure their goals and the value in their investment is maximized.”
For example, the home on Cottage Hill is near the end of a cul de sac, set on a private, wooded lot in the scenic NE side subdivision. Stone accents and custom inlaid wood ceilings are just a few of the details that set this home apart. With its open floor plan, the home offers an ease of flow between functional spaces. The gourmet kitchen features quartz counters, custom cabinetry, and a large walk-in pantry. The wall of windows and open staircase take advantage of the wooded view, as well, with the stairway leading to a lower level with plentiful space.
Michael Drive and Eastview Avenue showcase other award winning floorplans from this builder. Both are set on private lots. Eastview overlooking a gorgeous pond and Michael overlooking the Iowa countryside. Both have trademark FCC finishes– quartz counters, custom cabinetry, a large walk-in pantry, and a plethora of windows that take advantage of the view and natural light
Every home built by First Construction Company is built with a focus on energy efficiency— from LED lighting, high R-value insulation, aerosol duct sealing for prevention of air loss, whole house ventilation to the highest efficiency mechanicals, and every home they build will obtain a 5 Star Plus HERS Rating from a third party, which exceeds Energy Star requirements and will save the homeowner money on utilities.
