Posted: January 6, 2016
You have made a fantastic choice to build your dream home with Aspen|Windmiller. Village Home Stores has had the great privilege to be involved in so many of the beautiful and unique homes that they have built in the Quad Cities region. The design and selection process works so smoothly with Aspen|Windmiller and the Village Home Stores team because we value the same end result for our customers: The building process should be simple and fun.
Aspen|Windmiller has a system in place to make sure the process is as simple as possible for you. What an incredible benefit you have in Stephanie Rudd! Stephanie works very hard at getting a grasp on your personal style and what your dream home looks like. This begins at your first meetings with the Aspen|Windmiller team. Stephanie works directly with the team at Village Home Stores to hand-curate every selection made at our store so that the finished result lines up with the overall look you want for your home. Our staff loves working on homes with Aspen|Windmiller because their clients have great taste and love thinking outside-the-box. Their homes are high-style and always on point with current trends in our industry. Every material selection is curated with your overall look in mind. We would like to introduce you to your team at Village Home Stores (left to right) Josh, Heather, Keri, and Rob. They are excited to hear about the dream home you are building with Aspen|Windmiller!
At your first appointment in the Village Home Stores showroom you will work closely with the Aspen|Windmiller team here at the store. Our Contractor Account Coordinator Josh Heitzler and Stephanie will walk you through your prepared design and help guide you through all of the details and selections to be made in the Cabinetry and Countertop showroom. Stephanie and Josh will guide you through the Kitchen, Bathrooms, Laundry, Bar, and any other areas of your design requiring cabinetry and countertops.
You will then meet with our Rob Ries who is the owner of our Appliance showroom. Rob will walk you through the options available for your design. Stephanie and Josh each work closely with Rob to insure the correct sizes and models are selected for your space. Every customer uses their kitchen differently and we can’t wait to prepare the perfect Appliance package for your lifestyle. Village Home Stores carries KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Maytag, Viking, and many more appliance brands. There is something for every look and budget. At Village Home Stores we want you to enjoy your purchases for many years to come and we service what we sell. Once your home is complete, our expert Appliance Service Team is just a phone call away anytime you may need them. You can expect an award-winning experience before and after the sale. Our service technicians were named “Most Professional Service Company” in 2016 by the United Servicers Association.
After your initial Appliance meeting you will meet with our New Construction Lighting Specialist Keri Swanberg to begin selection for your home’s Lighting plan. By this point, Stephanie will have a more targeted idea of your personal style as well as the lighting needs your design requires. Keri will help you select the Dining, Foyer, Great Room, and Island Lighting first. The rest of the selections fall into place thereafter. Our Aspen|Windmiller customers receive free non-specialty lightbulbs for their entire Lighting package and all items are delivered to your new home for free. Speaking of free did you know that a good portion of your Lighting package itself can be free when you bundle your purchases throughout our store?

Stephanie keeps you on task in our showroom and makes sure everything selected fits well into the overall look you want for your home. Your entire team from Village Home Stores is in constant communication with the Aspen|Windmiller team to assure that the entire process from design to installation goes smoothly. Every detail from lighting placement to built-in appliances, we are working towards making your dream home a reality.
A final sign-off appointment will be made to confirm all of your choices. There is no limit to the access you have to our experts. There is no limit to the amount of store appointments you may make with Josh or his assistant Heather Maxwell. Job visits and field measures will take place when needed after the selection process. The Aspen|Windmiller team will communicate with you throughout the entire building process so you know what is going on and what to expect with each phase.
