Marty Pinna is a licensed builder and General Contractor, capable of handling every aspect of the building project if the customer so desires. In fact, Marty lives in a Heckaman Home, so it can truly be said that he lives in what he sells.

We offer over 80 floor plans in popular Ranch, Cape Cod, Two-Story, Chalet and Duplex models. Sizes range from 1000 to over 3000 square feet. 4 Section ranches and capes are also available. All plans offer customizations, and our staff will assist you in choosing one which meets your needs and your budget. Once a plan has been chosen we will help you decide on styles, colors and options. If you would like to see a Heckaman home first hand, please feel free to arrange an appointment to see our model home, a Cape Cod/Chalet style house in Buckley, or contact us and we can mail you information. We also provide a reference list of past customers to everyone that inquires about a home.

Carriage Custom Homes will work with any lending institution of your choice to finance your home. We are experienced and knowledgeable in handling all aspects of the financing process for construction loans. Upon finalizing the sale, Heckaman Homes delivers the home, sets it on your foundation by crane, and finishes the home's interior. When completed, Carriage Custom Homes will do a walk-through with each customer to determine what minor service is needed. Any needed service work is noted and sent to Heckaman Homes for their service crew's attention. Additionally, once a home has been lived in for one full year, a final drywall inspection is done to repair any imperfections due to settlement. This service is unique to Heckaman Homes. A 10 year structural warranty is also standard on all homes. Many of our competitors only offer a 5 year structural warranty.

For the "Do-It-Yourselfer" or the cost conscious buyer, a set of floor plans can be provided. This allows the customer to choose and hire their own sub-contractors for the remaining site work on the project.

Our goal is that each and every homeowner is completely satisfied with their home, and we pride ourselves in the fact that many of our customers come from the referrals of our current home owners!
