A River Island Dream Home

A River Island Dream Home

If we were asked to choose our favorite custom home that we’ve built to date, it would be admittedly difficult (probably impossible!) to pick only one. Because each is unique, every BEC Custom Home is an opportunity to fall in love with a new lot, a different floor plan, fresh design elements, and all of the possibilities that are entailed in the process of building a house. We love every single one of them! But 709 Marsh Point was a particularly wonderful home building experience for us, for a number of reasons.

709 Marsh Point is a gorgeous house situated in River Island in Evans, boasting 7 bedrooms, 6 baths, and a very spacious 6505 sq. feet. We built this home last year for new homeowners Bruce and Sophia James.The Jameses met with numerous custom builders before deciding to partner with BEC Custom Homes to build their dream home. They said, “We were immediately impressed with the quality of workmanship and attention to detail.” It was that first impression, along with the recommendation of several of their friends with whom we had worked, that sealed the deal for the James family. And the feeling was mutual! Bruce and Sophia have terrific taste, great vision, and they knew exactly what they wanted in their new home. However, they were also incredibly gracious and open-minded, trusting in our expertise when recommendations were made. It was a perfect partnership that resulted in one amazing dream home.

It’s tough to decide our favorite elements of 709 Marsh Point. The house features some of the most beautiful light fixtures, many of which Sophia selected from Restoration Hardware. We’re also pretty wild about those beautiful wood beams in the foyer. And just feast your eyes on that backyard… it’s like having your own personal resort to enjoy year-round! We feel confident that Bruce and Sophia are making some wonderful memories in their custom home.

The Jameses shared a few (incredibly kind and really awesome) words with us about their experience working with BEC Custom Homes:


Building a new home is an exciting, yet somewhat terrifying process. During our build, we had numerous changes. Brian and Beth listened to our desires and implemented them flawlessly. They were there to assist and offer suggestions on everything from home design to fixtures to landscaping. BEC met every commitment of budget, timeline, and most importantly, quality. After the completion of our home, they have been available to answer questions and fix the very minor issues we had promptly. We absolutely love our new home and would highly recommend BEC Construction to all of our friends and family!

Wow. Are we blushing? Because we’re certainly grinning from ear to ear! Nothing makes us happier than knowing that our customers are beyond satisfied with not only the craftsmanship of their custom home but also the journey we all took together to bring it to fruition. We enjoyed the adventure just as much, and we’re grateful to have been a part of it. Thank you, Bruce and Sophia!
