Willco Homes

Owned by Sheryl Willingham, Willco Homes is built on the foundation of unparalleled quality craftsmanship and personalized attention to detail. They work hand-in-hand with every customer to build not just a residence, but a home that reflects their tastes and individual personalities. This personalized service coupled with exceptional quality assures the delivery of a distinctive, tailored home.

Do you have a building style? If so, how would you briefly describe it?
Our building style is as individualized as each of our customers. Whether our budget is small or large, we strive to give our customers a home of their vision, unique style and discerning taste. When we design a home, my focus is always centered around not only the beauty of the home but functionality and storage as well. We focus on the smallest details to make sure their new home is as unique and special as our customers are.

We can't wait to see your Street of Dreams custom home! If you can give us one little sneak peek, what would it be?
Our home is a very open concept, which is perfect for entertaining. It features a must-have master wing, a gorgeous kitchen with an incredible walk-through pantry, spacious bedrooms, a game room/media room that all of your friends will envy, and the outdoor living space of your dreams, which includes a beautiful lap pool, screened porch, and a wonderful surprise you won't want to miss!

What's your favorite thing about being a home builder?
We love to develop personal relationships with our customers and walk with them as they make their dreams a reality.

If you can pick one, what is your favorite design trend right now?
My favorite design trend right now would be the cleaner lines of transitional styling while adding “farmhouse” touches to make the home comfy and cozy for living life! Another design trend that I love is the growing desire for beautiful and practical outdoor living space. This space is becoming as important as the kitchen and I love being creative and functional in these areas as well.

What is your best advice to readers when it comes to custom home building/design?
Take your time designing the plans of your dreams. Do not rush that process! Choose a reputable builder that is honest and trustworthy that you want to develop a relationship with over the months it will take to build your home. Communication is key! Don't forget to enjoy the experience along the way. Building is something you and your family should enjoy while making memories that last a lifetime.

What's it like to be a part of Street of Dreams? What are you most excited for with Street of Dreams?
It is an honor and privilege to be a part of this event. I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends throughout this process. I love to be able to give back to my community and I am so pleased we are able to partner with COHBA and Edmond Public Schools to make even more dreams come true!
