hen it comes to building your own home or fully renovating your current home, the decisions can seem daunting. This is why you need to contact Timberlake Design | Build first to guide you through the process.

It is important to note that when building a home, you need to have the right lot for what you need. With the On Your Lot Program, Timberlake Design | Build will help you find it. “Prince George’s County has a great supply of available land unlike other areas that are strained with development or have astronomical fees.” Dave says, “[Clients] just need someone to help them find it. Not every lot is a buildable lot, but if you are interested in building a new house one of the things that we can help you with is finding that land and a place to build.”

Timberlake Design | Build has been operating in Prince George’s County for over 55 years. It is a family-owned business under its parent company, Timberlake Homes. “We understand the market, the approval process, and we have connections with the county. We are always going to do the right thing,” Dave says.

This starts with contacting the company and telling them what you need. Dave Lunden tells us, “There are a variety of ways to go. We are going to try and find a lot that is suitable for the client. No two pieces of land are the same. When someone comes to us, we begin identifying a piece of land whether it is through




a realtor, a developer or a contact who is trying to sell land. Part of this process is that we are going to walk the lot with the client and point out any challenges the land may have. Then, we will work up a budget for that client.” Not only does Timberlake Design | Build walk with you every step of the way, they have the resources and equipment to get the jobs done. “We have a deep bench to draw from. We do subdivision work, we have experts who have the skills and knowledge to build roads, put in utilities, and get the land approved. Our in-house people are looking at it as we go through this process in order to save the homeowner money and to give us a better product.” From finding the right lot to choosing your home, they have your best interests in mind. “Now once we identify the type of land,

people will choose from one of our house designs. We will connect with our engineers and we get our homeowners set up with a lender that will approve a construction loan or any other type of loan that is needed,” Dave says, “If you have land that you are looking to sell you can approach Timberlake Design | Build to get a buyer lined up to place a house on the land. “We work with realtors and/or property owners who have a land piece they want to sell. We try to help them market it with a house package. If we sell it this way, we can give them pricing for the house and all of the options. Buyers and potential homeowners can see one of the spec homes or model homes and walk through it to see if they actually like it rather than just looking online.” If you are not looking to build a new home or you want to stay close to Bowie, but do not have the right lot
