Build Your Dream Home That’s Close To What Counts
Did you know that McCormick is the only community in the Puget Sound area that offers new homes on a golf course? And you don’t actually need to be a golfer to enjoy the benefits of living on a golf course.

Two of the four builders offering new homes on the golf course are  Garrette Custom Homes, which has been in the Pacific Northwest for more than a decade and winning multiple awards, and Zetterberg Custom Homes. Both builders offer stunning homes with very livable floor plans and have earned a reputation for high-quality craftsmanship and exceptional service. They’re already established in neighboring Gig Harbor, along with various other areas throughout Puget Sound, and we’re excited to welcome them to McCormick.

Based in Puyallup, Zetterberg Custom Homes is a family-owned company that’s been in business since 1969. Karl Zetterberg and his wife, Jane, started as a small builder and since then, Zetterberg Custom Homes has built a solid reputation in the Puget Sound area. Now, their four sons — who have grown up in the business and have helped build homes by their father’s side — are running the company. What makes their homes in McCormick unique is that you not only get the same high-quality, completely customized home that Garrette is known for but you also benefit from living in a master-planned community. McCormick is not your typical neighborhood. It features various amenities such as parks, trails, community clubs, children’s play spaces and more, all practically at your door step. And to top that off, McCormick has a championship golf course that’s famous for its serene setting.

Besides being an award-winning golf course with stunning views, the McCormick Woods Golf Club features the popular Clubhouse Restaurant & Bar. This is where you can enjoy spectacular views and mouthwatering food made from fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Not too many small-town neighborhoods can bring this kind of dining experiences to their front door.

Many of the homes that Garrette Custom Homes is building in McCormick will border the golf course. That’s like having the best of two worlds — pristine, natural woods throughout the neighborhood on one hand, and on the other, lush, grassy vistas among the towering firs of the golf course. Any place you look, you can feel the tranquility of your surroundings.

The Garrette homebuilding experience is unlike anything you’ll find anywhere else. The company’s high-touch customer service means you don’t just choose from several floor plans that range from 1,800 to 3,200 square feet. You’ll be able to walk through Garrette 5,000-square-foot Design Studio to select every detail of your home design, starting with the front door, cabinets and appliances, and all the way down to the type of tub you prefer. You’ll get an opportunity to walk through one of the largest showrooms and meet with a designer who can help you choose the styles that best suit your needs and personality. You can get the designer’s expert opinion about materials, finishes, colors and other choices. This invaluable resource will make the decision-making process much easier, so you don’t become overwhelmed by all the selections.

Garrette Custom Homes hosts regular seminars where you can learn about building a custom home, and for attending, you’ll get a $1,000 credit toward your Design Studio purchase. It’s like getting paid to learn. And the knowledge gained will help you enjoy your homebuilding experience that much more. Call Melina Eshinski 253-678-5683 to register for an upcoming seminar.

As if the quality of Garrette’s homes and the customer experience weren’t enough, you’ll be amazed how soon you can start moving in. The process is faster than typical custom homebuilding, and you could be in your home as fast as four or five months after permits are in place.

Go ahead, set your dreams in motion. Soon you could be enjoying your new McCormick home — just in time for fall and holiday festivities. Just one more reason to celebrate. Check out all of Garrette’s floorplans featuring single story and two story homes with master on the main. Need to move quickly? McCormick has quick delivery homes, some border the golf course.
