    Our house sits atop an east facing hillside in Grapevine, Texas with an exceptional twenty mile view of Dallas skyline.It was the lot the builders rejected and others thought unbuildable. This site sloped severely from the street to the top of the hill; however, the views are stunning. Building the house on this steep upslope terrain meant that it would have to be approached unconventionally, thus presenting many challenges which require creative solutions.  
Bailey Draper of Draper Custom Homes took this difficult and challenging job and turned it into an opportunity for us to build our dream home.   With a careful planning to work with the terrain and to blend with the nature, Bailey came up with the most efficient and cost effective way to build the house without compromising the views.
The unique design of the house also presented additional construction challenges. The main living area has ceilings that span to about 50’ wide by 50’ long at 24’ high, which require custom beams to support both the ceiling and the roof.  To capitalize on the spectacular view from this site, the house is installed with many large windows which require reinforcements to support the heavy bricks and stones.  Too many windows also led to another challenge in creating an energy efficient design in a hot Texas summer climate. A thoughtful design process led to foam insulation, low-emittance windows, radiant barrier roof sheathing, and ridge vents which have proven to reduce the energy consumption.  These are just a few of the challenges that Bailey overcame with his creative ideas and attention to detail.
There is nothing more important than feeling that you can trust your builder, trust their expertise, trust their contractors and trust that you are getting a fair price.  But the best aspect of building a home with  Bailey Draper Custom Homes is the personal attention. He took time to understand our priorities and to listen to our concerns.  His attention to detail and communication show the highest level of professionalism and dedication. Bailey has done an awesome job, and most importantly, Bailey proved to be trustworthy and honest. 
Bailey Draper made the stressful home building experience a very pleasurable one.  We love our home and are proud to tell others about Draper Custom Homes.
We look forward to a continued relationship, personally and professionally, in the years to come.
