The Magnolia Difference

When we build a house our goal is to create a superior home. Our craftsmanship, construction, material choices, and attention to detail sets us apart from our competitors. With a combined 53 years of experience, Karen Garner and Reggie Garner Jr. oversee each home as it is being built. From concept to creation Karen and Reggie are there every step of the way providing that extra touch. We know the importance of a dream home, and our goal is to make each individual house the home of your dreams.

Our standard included features below go far beyond what builders typically include in a brand new home. We go beyond the standards to give you what we have learned make the difference between living in a house or living in a home.

1

Custom Designed Plans

We meticulously design our homes with our owners in mind. Each home already comes with our unique custom touches, but you can take that further and make more design changes to fit your own family’s needs. We pride ourselves on not just being a custom builder; we are your personal builder.

2

Amenities

Magnolia communities understand the importance of livability not just in your home, but in the community itself. We typical include one or more additional features such as community pools, park areas, walking trails, common open spaces, or stocked fishing ponds. These special touches add to the Magnolia difference.

3

10-Year Limited QBWC Warranty

We know that when you purchase a home you are making the largest investment of your life time. Our goal is to give you peace of mind. That’s why we provide a 10-year limited warranty that is even transferrable if your home is sold.

4

Easy Exterior Maintenance

Our exterior standards include copper flashing and elegant European round downspouts that do not rust or ever need painting. The James Hardie cement-based siding and trim reduces termite, rot, and fire concerns while providing a 30-year warranty on the siding and a 15-year warranty on the trim. We want our homes to be easy to maintain while retaining the polished finish that makes a Magnolia Home stand out from the rest.

5

Landscaping and Exterior Features

Not only do we use maintenance free materials, we extend your living space to the outdoors. We include covered rear porches with ceiling fans as a Magnolia Homes standard to provide a more comfortable setting and energy efficiency. We include full landscaping and provide a one-year Herbi-Systems treatment that eliminates the need for weeding and fertilization of grass during your first year. This allows you full enjoyment of your yard upon move-in without any additional costs on landscaping and maintenance during your first year.

6

Energy Efficient Windows

Pella windows with Argon Gas and Advanced Low-E glass to continue the easy exterior maintenance with no painting and no rotting. You will save thousands of dollars in energy bills over time with these energy efficient windows. They also reduce the fading of furniture, floors, and window treatments and include a 20-year warranty on the glass, and a warranty-limited/lifetime on the window to the original homeowner.

7

Quality Plumbing Materials

We take pride in putting together a home beyond everyday building materials. We choose Pex Tubing for plumbing instead of PVC and copper which are the norm. Pex Tubing handles colder weather better, provides a clean and quiet water distribution system with no pinhole leaks like copper. No more singing and water hammering of piples.

8

Reinforced Slabs and Rigid Roofs

From top to bottom, Magnolia Homes goes beyond standards in construction to build a superior home. The foundation of your home is an important part of the longevity of construction. We step beyond the minimum foundations used in most homes in the Memphis area. Our foundations are 14” minimum above grade slabs with extra rebar to increase the overall integrity of the foundation and reduce the possibility of water infiltration. The same attention to detail goes into our roof construction. Our extra step of 16” on center rafters vs. the typical 24” on center construction provides more solid roofs and better resistance to weather conditions.

9

Optimal Attics

Attics can be the hottest and least usable space in a typical home. In a Magnolia Home we use radiant barrier E Shield and raised air ducts for better attic insulation and floor storage. Instead of regular plywood ceilings in your attic we use TechSheild – this is a foil facing that reflects heat penetration. Not only does this insulation help with the attic but the overall energy efficiency of the entire home. We also make it easy to access and utilize your attic space by constructing walk-in attics or stair ways and laying flooring for ease of storage. This coupled with the compact wiring and duct work make your attic a usable, accessible space.

10

Custom Details

Each of our homes go beyond the standards to infuse the custom details that define Magnolia Homes. Each of our homes has a custom bench and hook to keep the back entrance organized and clutter-free with additional storage. We use 5” wide engineered, hand scraped hickory wood floors for durability and beauty. These floors require less maintenance and have a life time structural and 25-year finish manufacturer’s warranty. Our 5” baseboards are standard throughout our homes. This gives that additional quality custom look not found in other homes in the area.

11

Kitchen Comforts

When creating the perfect kitchen we only use custom built solid wood cabinets featuring self closing drawers and doors. All our cabinets are locally made. Other custom features include light rails, adjustable door hinges, false doors on the sides, and no retro-fitted fillers that are typical in factory-built cabinets. We top off our kitchen designs with Moen faucets for timeless designs and lasting finishes.

12

Custom Closets

There are no cheap wire closet racks in Magnolia Homes. We only use Incognito custom shelving in our closets. These are customized, sturdy, maintenance free, professionally installed and never need painting.

13

Insulated Garage Doors

We go that extra step to insure less heat and air conditioning loss through your garage by installing insulated garage doors. We also use a quieter motor with belt drive to keep the noise down.

14

Clean and Safe Work Environment

Our approach to uniquely designed quality homes extends to the safe and clean environment in which our construction crews work. Top quality construction and safety go hand in hand. We reduce waste and reduce costs by keeping a clean and safe worksite.

From top to bottom, and from the inside out, Reggie and Karen keep track of the details and never settle for ordinary. Their goal is to make your Magnolia Home the perfect combination of beauty, efficiency, low maintenance, and sturdy construction. These are homes you will want to live in for years to come.
