Modern Rustic Homes
Established in 1996, Modern Rustic Homes’ Michael Grant represents the “design,” while Joe Dixon signifies the “build’ behind this wildly imaginative Design-Build Custom Home Construction company. As the name suggests, their stunning homes are marked by a mix of rustic materials such as poplar bark, rough-sawn planks, heavy timbers, and stone accents blended with the latest advances in design and livability. Home designs emphasize windows for viewing the natural setting and filling living spaces with light, vaulted ceilings to enhance the sense of spaciousness, and the creation of intimate gathering spaces – inside and out. Modern Rustic Homes’ design/build strategy captures your ideas and transforms them into a home that reflects your vision and enriches your lifestyle.

Their in-house designer can create a home design that enhances your life, meets your needs, and matches your style preferences. With a specialization that extends to interior design, they can guide you through the selection of virtually every aspect of your home’s interior. Through a creative mix of elements, Clay to Custom strives to achieve both elegance and value for your new WaterStone home.
Bring Your Own Builder
Once you have purchased your home site in WaterStone at Jonica Gap, you are welcome to bring your own custom home builder to craft your new home. Because there is an overall vision at play among the hardwood trees and rolling hills of our community, all builders, their plans, and elevations must undergo a review by our Architectural Team. We understand that you and your builder are eager to launch construction. We will endeavor to make the review process as seamless as possible as we ensure their designs are in harmony with the landscape and neighboring homes. Once approved, we look forward to watching your new WaterStone home take shape!
