Say Hello to Ethan Weaver, Project Designer

Tell us about something you do in this role that others may not realize you do?

In addition to being a drafter and working on client plans I also manage the PCR process (personal choice request) which is when buyers want to customize a part of their floor plan beyond what we typically offer.  Providing sketches, estimates, and working with the buyers needs and wants until a final decision is reached.

What is your favorite part about working at Keystone Custom Homes?

Having the opportunity to be part of a highly efficient and productive team where we can all work to accomplish a goal together is something I appreciate every day.  My favorite part of the job is creating sketches and providing estimates when buyers want to customize part of their home to fit their needs.  Figuring out how the space will be used and being able to make suggestions and solve problems is something I love to do.  I really enjoy being able to help New Home Advisors by answering questions that come from home buyers to keep them moving through the process.
