    Scala was open to my personal ideas, no matter what we asked,  always found the right solution to make the house feel home. Right away I knew I could trust Ari, that’s why we decided to move forward and buy the land.

    Building with Scala was a really good experience, overall the process enjoyable. 

    We had our home on time, Scala was extremely responsive to our questions and to the changes that we wanted to make along the way. We were also kept up to date throughout the whole process and even able to add our own customizations to fit our specific needs. Scala wanted to make sure the house they were building was not just a place, but the home to start our family.

    At a late stage of the construction, we left for an extended vacation in India.  I couldn’t visualize how everything was going to look at the end, and coming back I was greatly impressed. Nothing was a problem at all.  I was really happy.

    Working closely with Scala at each stage of the design and build was collaborative, interesting, satisfying and very enjoyable.  Ari and Chris T. provided great ideas and suggestions to make our home more ideally suited to our needs. It was a first-class buying experience and the build quality was excellent.

    Since we moved into our Scala Home at Spirit Bay we truly do feel we have been “living the dream”. The house fits our lifestyle perfectly. We love the craftsmanship details and the fact that it is a quality built home. Some of the suggestions we were given during the build were features we had never thought of and were delighted with the results afterward. The people behind the design and location of the house knew how to optimize the view and light. Thank you Scala!

    Scala did a great job adapting the home design to our needs even during the middle of the construction process. If there was something they believed was not the best option, they would bring it up and make the necessary modifications. I feel they treated us as if they were building their own home, trying to maximize the space and ensuring we were happy with every detail.

    We appreciated that Scala was willing to sit with us and walk us through the whole process from the beginning, making suggestions and adjustments until we were happy with the final plans. They innovated to make the design fit our needs, and they responded to our ideas. This was the first time that we were involved with designing a home, and we were not present to supervise their work. Ari and the others from Scala inspired confidence and trust throughout the building experience.
