Sapphire Homes, Inc. is a local, family owned and operated small business that builds 30-40 spec homes in Seattle and on the Eastside annually. We build at three different spec levels depending on the location. All of our communities are within a 30-minute radius of downtown Bellevue with homes as far south as SeaTac/Burien/Tukwila and as far north as the south Snohomish County boarder. We have been active in land development and new home construction in the King and Snohomish County building industry for the last 20 years.
Over the last 7 years, we have built 200+ homes across 25+ communities in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Issaquah, Renton, Burien and King County. We are on target to bring 50+ new homes to market in 2018 and we currently have a full pipeline of work for our team through 2019.
We pride ourselves in building high quality homes that include many luxury amenities other builders add as upgrades. Our Eastside homes include covered outdoor living areas, sound dampening windows, wood-wrapped interior windows and mirrors, extensive hardwood, slab Quartz throughout, stainless steel professional grade appliances, iron balusters, 8 pound carpet pads, self-closing custom cabinetry, melamine shelving in the master closet and pantry, and custom millwork cubbies in the mud room.
Sapphire Homes take a very hands-on approach to building. As owners, we are involved in every aspect of the homes design and construction; from the initial lot development through floor plan selection, design decisions and all finishing details. We are actively involved in the construction and personally inspect each individual home to ensure the quality that Sapphire Homes is known for is there in every step of the process.
We offer a one-year Sapphire Homes builders warranty as well as a 6-year Residential Warranty Company http://www.rwcwarranty.com/ extended structural warranty on all homes.
We are an active member of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, the Building Industry Association of Washington, the National Association of Home Builders and the Project Management Institute.
