Rolwes Customers Are Part of the Reason We are so Innovative

The Rolwes family name has been building homes in the St. Louis area since the mid 1950’s.  Rolwes Company has a long tradition of quality and valuing the customer experience.  As a St. Louis homebuilder, we are in tune with what buyers in our area want in a new home.

While we are steeped in St. Louis tradition, that does not mean that Rolwes Company is stuck in the past.  Each and every year, we listen to what our customers are looking for in a new home.  Rolwes Company employees actively seek out feedback from prospective purchasers on what they like in our homes and what they don’t like.  We also ask what they like about the homes of other St. Louis homebuilders. 

Several times during the year, as employees, we meet and discuss the information that we have gathered from the public.  We compare this information to what our current home lineup offers and discover what we are lacking.  Often times, this will result in a new feature being implemented to existing plans. 

Recently, we have started to add “planning areas” to ourhomes because of the sentiments our customers have expressed.  In today’s busy lifestyle, buyers want their builders to provide a space where they can drop their phones, mail, bags and other items that is out of the way.  Rather than empty their belongings onto thekitchen island, a small area that is hidden, and has outlets and USB ports forcharges is highly sought after.

A second innovation that our customers have helped shape in our homes is the loft area that many of our plans have.  One of the great concerns that families have today is what their children can be exposed to on the internet.  A suggestion that many experts have made on this topic is to never allow children to have private access to a computer in their bedrooms.  The idea is that computer access should be out in the open where monitoring by a parent can occur.  When our buyers brought this to our attention, the idea of the loft area in our homes came to be.

This area is typically located at the top of the steps in our story and a half and two-story homes.  It allows for a family computer, gaming system, or other internet connected devices to be utilized in a wide-open space. 

Another outcome from these meetings can be the introduction of an entirely new plan.  Our Kingston plan is a perfect example of taking the information that buyers want from a St. Louis homebuilder and designing a home around that idea.

Most households in our area are dual income families.  And even though both people are working, they often don’t have the exact same schedule day in and day out.  There are likely early mornings and late evenings scattered throughout the work week.  Often these differing schedules will cause disturbances in sleep schedules.  A modern solution to this has been to create a space within the Owner’s Bedroom Suite that is separate from the main sleeping area.  This area allows for one partner to get up early, make their coffee or tea, gather their items for the day without having to turn on lights or otherwise disturb the sleeping partner before they need to be awake.  Conversely, in the evening, if one partner has gone to bed, and the other arrives home from work late, they can prepare for bed without waking the other with lights and other pre-bed activities.

If you are considering a Rolwes Company to build your new home in St. Louis, please be certain to let us know what new innovative features you want in your home.  Your input is key to making us the best new homebuilder in St. Louis.
