Who We Are
Our founder, Jimmy Tanghongs, has a unique background. He earned his degree in Electrical Engineering and worked in the corporate world for 9 years in the North Dallas area. Much of his time was spent in Research & Development, and afterwards in Operations. As an engineer who loves to improve every process he’s involved in, he wondered how he would design a better home. Thus he created a challenge – Innovate to build the best modern homes in the world that represent all the best that 2017 and beyond offers. Modern technology so that a home produces as much or more electricity than it consumes. Modern philosophy so that a home is as maintenance-free and sustainable as possible. All of this combined into a beautiful, modern-style architecture, with the newest in forward looking designs, open floor plans, and air quality that’s healthier for the homeowner. The sum of all these efforts help to eliminate our carbon footprint on the world. And so began The New Modern Home™.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What processes does The New Modern Home™ help with?
A: We can help you from the beginning to end. That includes searching for and purchasing a lot through our realtor, to custom designing your home to suit your lifestyle, to building your home and providing warranty on your home. If you are financing your home, you will first need to get pre-approved with your bank to purchase the lot and then obtain construction financing. Once your home is completed, you will combine your lot and construction financing into one mortgage, that is similar to any other single-loan financing method.
Q: What are your build prices?
A: In the automobile industry, you will find a car that has a basic model, and the same car filled with options and upgrades. A fully-optioned car will in some cases be as much as 50% higher than the same basic car. Homes are the same way, even for the same square footage home. With that said, our standard home, which comes with a higher quality of home than any other production builder’s standard, begins around $140/sf, and can go to $200+/sf. Larger open rooms require longer spans of beams, and this will bump up the price of the home. Higher-end appliances can add $5-10/sf to the home. Hardwood floors are an upgrade over carpet and tile.
