The Magnolia Difference

When we build a house our goal is to create a superior home.

At Magnolia Homes, our quality craftsmanship, efficient construction, intentionally-chosen materials, and attention to detail make a huge difference in the world of home building. These aspects ultimately set us apart! With over 65 years of experience combined, 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 that is characteristic of Magnolia Homes! Our goal is to make each individual house feel like the home of our buyers’ dreams.


Our standard included features below go far beyond what is typically included in a brand new home! We go beyond the standards to give you what we have learned to make the difference between living in a house or living in a home – the Magnolia Difference!


We meticulously design our homes with our owners in mind

When choosing a home that best fits your needs, selecting from efficiently-designed floor plans makes the process much simpler! Each of our homes already come with our unique customized touches, but you can take that even further with additional floor plan options!


Magnolia communities understand the importance of livability

Not just in your home, but in the community itself! We typically 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!


Our goal is to give you peace of mind

We know that when you purchase a home you are making the largest investment of your lifetime. Our goal is to give you peace of mind in this decision! That’s why we provide a 10-year limited warranty that is even transferable if your home is sold! View Our Warranty Page Here! 



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 the likelihood of 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!


We extend your living space to the outdoors

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 Andrew Turf and Tree Services lawn treatment that reduces the need for weeding and fertilization of grass during your first year. This allows you full enjoyment of your yard upon move-in and additional cost savings on landscaping and maintenance during your first year.


Save in energy bills over time

Pella® & JELD-Wen® windows with Argon Gas and Advanced Low-E glass to continue the easy exterior maintenance with no painting and no rotting. You will save on 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.

We take pride in putting together a home beyond everyday building materials

We choose Pex Plumbing Tubing for plumbing instead of PVC and copper which are the norm. Pex Tubing handles colder weather better due to its high durability and flexibility, is resistant to corrosion, mineral buildup, and erosion, and provides a clean and quiet water distribution system with no pinhole leaks like copper.


We step beyond the minimum foundations used in most homes in the Memphis area

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. 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.


efficiently-used attic space

In a Magnolia Home, we use radiant barrier TechShield 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, including all mechanicals such as your hot water heaters and HVAC units, by constructing walk-in attics and stairways to the third floor level while also laying additional flooring for ease of storage. This coupled with the organized, compact wiring and duct work make your attic a usable, accessible space for additional storage!


Each of our homes go beyond the standards

Each of our homes go beyond the standards to infuse the unprecedented details that define Magnolia Homes! Each of our homes has a custom-built bench and hooks to keep the back entrance organized and clutter-free with additional storage! We also create a custom vent hood for each kitchen, fitting perfectly to its space in the kitchen. We provide quality details throughout with elevated trim work, cedar beams, and additional timeless characteristics that set a Magnolia Home apart.


Timeless designs and lasting finishes

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.


Customized, sturdy, maintenance free, professionally installed

We take closet space seriously at Magnolia Homes! We only use Inspired custom shelving in our closets. These are customized, sturdy, maintenance free, professionally installed and never need painting! We also design each of our homes to include generous closet space and linen closets.


We go that extra step

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!


Top quality construction and safety go hand in hand

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


From top to bottom, and from the inside out, Magnolia keeps track of the details and never settles for ordinary. Our 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 a lifetime!
