OFFERED BY NATURECRAFT CUSTOM HOMES By Lynette Chilcoat

"My goal is to show that the customer has flexibility and I want to give people design freedom," says builder Travis McKenzie, owner of Naturecraft Custom Homes. As someone who has been in the building industry since 1992, McKenzie has forged a signature platform—he creates beautiful homes out of fundamental elements.

Berin Jacob Wachsmann, Andrea Schaefer and Jason Billings have all helped to create a winning medley of homes available from Naturecraft. “The difference is in the details,” says Wachsmann. “The integrity of the builder is important, also,” adds Schaeffer. “Travis is building the best houses he can.

Here are a few of Naturecraft’s select projects.

Five bedrooms located throughout are co-mingled with a main floor great room, an oversized family entertainment area in the basement and an inviting loft begging to be transformed into a comfy reading space or relaxing craft corner.
