How the Gallery works for you.

Setting A Date - Within days of your new home purchase, your Design Consultant will call to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. We'll provide detailed information about what to expect, what to bring, who to bring and more.

First Impressions - Just as you greet guests in your own home with a warm welcome, we begin your Gallery experience in our Hospitality Area. As introductions are made, you'll enjoy refreshments and gain your very first impression of our remarkable showroom, where your new home will soon come to life.


Thanks for this amazing opportunity. We love our new home, it is beautiful and is more than enough for our family. You all are very patient and very understanding. I look forward to working more with this company in the near future.

Walk This Way

From the moment you set foot in The Design Studio, you'll come in contact with a dazzling array of flooring choices for your new Ernest home. In fact, we offer more than 400 different ways for you to step right up to exotic hardwoods, ceramic, porcelain, and marble tile, plush carpeting and durable vinyl. 

It's all yours!

The heart and soul of The Design Studio at Ernest Homes is a central work station where you'll see your personal selections come together throughout your design consultation. To reinforce the confidence in the selections you've made full array of chosen samples and displaying them together, allowing you to see the collective results. You may decide on a different cabinet, choose to upgrade your flooring option, or even discover you love your decisions now more than ever and wouldn't change a thing. Once final decisions are made, we then create a detailed and itemized list of all of your selections and, if you have chosen to go beyond our included features, provide prices as well. With your purchase agreement complete, the customization of your home truly begins and soon, it's all yours to enjoy in your very own Ernest Home.
