Spending more time at home means families these days may be realizing they need a lot more space. After the last few months, with more parents working from home, kids with e-learning, Zoom calls, etc., the need to build a new house, or remodel their current home, has become glaringly apparent.

Families may be looking to build a larger home to accommodate more room for a new home office, a study/quiet area for the kids, an additional bedroom or even a family entertainment room. Carl McIntyre, president of Carrington Homes in McCordsville, said that with the current housing market, there has never been a better time to build a new custom home.

“The interest rates on mortgages are low, and existing houses are selling quickly,” McIntyre said. “If you want to build a new house, we can determine and deliver exactly the home you want. We are known for our outstanding client communications.”

Established in 1992 by Chuck, Sandy, and Carl McIntyre, Carrington Homes has a solid reputation as a builder that emphasizes integrity and excellence.

“We also offer excellent remodeling work,” McIntyre stated. “We recently remodeled homes in the Crooked Stick and Meridian/Kessler areas, along with many other large-scale home renovations.”

When choosing various options for both the interior and exterior of a client’s dream home, ingenuity of design is one of their many specialties. Over the past several years, Carrington Homes has focused on whole home renovation projects.

“Our excellent architectural designers and interior designers can work with you to build the home of your dreams,” McIntyre said. To build or renovate the perfect home for your family, contact Carrington Homes at 317-336-8002, or visit them at
