Are there certain keepsakes from your current home that you don’t want to part with? When you right size and move into a Cornerstone home, you’ll see that every inch is designed to make your life easier. Walk-up attics give you easy access to wide open storage for you to keep all of your special possessions safe and sound. At Cornerstone Homes, we partner with California Closets to personalize these spaces just for you… from a place to stow pet supplies to wrapping stations and  Christmas décor storage, to extra clothing storage for your off-season wardrobe. California Closets can customize spaces in your new walk-up attic,  laundry room, bedrooms, pantry, and other additional closet spaces within your new home to store the things you use less often.

Finally, you call all the shots.  Our plans give you many options on creating spaces to fit your lifestyle needs.  Why not turn a large bonus suite into an old-fashioned movie lounge, or one of our flex spaces into that personal music room, extra bedroom, expansive closet, or wine room? Customizing extra space in our walkout lower levels, give you endless options to personalize.

When you build a brand new Cornerstone home with us, you get to be the first and only person to call it home. From beginning to end, your personal preferences lead the way, so your finished product looks exactly like the home you’ve always seen in your dreams. A new home is perfectly special — a new home is perfectly you.
