Building On Your Lot | Frequently Asked Questions


In what locations will Landmark Homes build on my land?

We are able to build in Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, and York Counties. Our home base is in Ephrata, PA (Lancaster County). 


How long does it take to build a home?

Our process takes approximately 6-8 months, with the construction of a home being about 180 days. Since it is necessary to allow time for site work and permits, however, the complete process may be a total of 10-12 months from start to move-in.


How are necessary site work requirements assessed and identified?

Before we can begin building your home, your land will need to be prepared. If you already have a site plan and/or grading plan, please let our private lot sales manager know so that we can provide you with estimated site work allowances. If you do not have a site plan and/or grading plan, we can recommend an engineering firm to assist in obtaining the required plans and permitting needed prior to building.
