Lou Nigro's building background in the construction industry
started while working in his father's family business, dating
back to the 1950's.
With his father retiring in 1980, Lou used that opportunity
to complete a degree in aviation management and spent the
next 12 years as a corporate jet pilot.
Experience, gained from a business that demands responsibility
and accountability, helps Lou bring that level of dedication to
each project he undertakes. Taking advantage of opportunities
which allowed Lou to return to his Nebraska roots, he returned
to residential new construction in 1993.
In the Lincoln area LA Home Builders is now recognized in the
building industry as a leader in raising the standard for new
home construction and custom home building. This process happens
on many levels. We can recommend, and use regularly, such technology
as underground geo-thermal heating and cooling. Our homes can
be fully electronically automated and we have the capability of
packaging your home as an air tight "healthy home."
Regardless of amenities or how you choose to finish your home,
every project we build starts with a pre-engineered truss system
and is built to perform for the next hundred years.
WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
We have a wide pool of resources that we work from. Whether it
is using 100-year-old reclaimed pine from New England to become
an heirloom in your home or forging custom iron railings that
bring design and architecture together, we have the necessary
people and tools to make it happen. We restrict production levels
of our custom homes to a schedule that allows us to individually
focus on the level of design that we and our clients seek to accomplish.
HOW WE WORK
Our services are structured so that we may work with each
customer on a level that is most comfortable and beneficial
to them. LA Home Builders offers three distinct service plans.
- Our first and most popular is used when our customer has selected
LA Home Builders as their design and build team. At this point we can create
a custom home plan specifically designed to maximize the advantages
of your property and accomplish your goals for both design and
budget.. We work with you to create the home that will grow
with you and your family. The planning time we spend together
allows us to form an important relationship that gives us the
necessary tools to make suggestions and bring the design of
your home to the highest level possible. This benefits our customers
as well, because in learning what you want in your new home,
we can give a true custom home proposal that reflects your desires.
Not just a run of the mill generic estimate on cost. That means
less stress and fewer surprises later on.
- For those clients that want a unique home but have a house
plan already selected, we can refine and develop it into a completed
set of buildable blueprints with the LA Home Builders level of detail you
- LA Home Builders also has a portfolio of plans from which we build and continually have in various stages of production. Our "spec" houses are specifically
designed for each individual property. This allows you the LA Home Builders quality and detail and can give you a home that will be completed based on your needs.
ON THE JOB
At LA Home Builders we consider ourselves students of architecture
and design, and we consider our customers the catalyst
for challenges that expand the breadth of our professional
home building skills on every level. When you offer a product
that involves truly custom details, a direct link to the
job site construction process is vital. To break the line
of communication and add middlemen to interpret our details
jeopardizes the finished product.
Lou takes on the roll of builder as well as job foreman and supervisor.
This provides the direct link that our customers need to accomplish
the details we design. Having the personnel our client works with
on the jobsite on a daily basis minimizes confusion and delays.
Coordinating details between the customer and LA Home Builders construction
team is Lisza Coffey, Design Coordinator for LA Home Builders. Lisza directs
the design process from conception of plans through the completion of building
of the house. During construction she will guide you through the
maze of possible selections to create an environment that accomplishes
what feels like your home. We work hard at taking into consideration
your budget and we feel a great responsibility in the trust you've
placed with us in building your new home. Financially this is
one of the biggest investments if not the biggest investment you
can make and we understand that. Ask around, our past clients
tell us that by guiding you through the process we keep the stress
of new home building to a minimum and we make it exciting and
For those clients who want a truly customized home, we have the
knowledge and expertise to accomplish those things. We give our
clients the courage to do unique things in their home and be confident
it will turn out right.
