Did Top Quality Homes in Thurston County Just Get Even Better?

Rob Rice Homes, your premier South Puget Sound builder, has always taken great pride in the superior quality of our construction and the fantastic finishes in all of our properties. We understand that with a softening real estate market and higher interest rates, customers are more discerning about choosing a home to purchase.

Having built luxury homes for more than 35 years, innovation and staying ahead of the curve with the latest design trends have always been core to our homebuilding process. In light of this, we’re thrilled to announce we’ve recently made some significant upgrades.

Stunning 100% Maple Cabinetry


Our stunning maple cabinets come in seven designer shades!

In a major upgrade, the cabinets in all of our homes are now top-quality maple! We offer a wide range of seven designer shades, including popular shadow, graphite, charcoal, sable, cocoa and more. Although the availability and pricing of wood has been difficult during the pandemic, we have worked creatively with our long-standing and local partner, Canyon Creek Cabinets in ensuring we are offering the highest quality cabinets to our home buyers.

The Most Energy-Efficient Homes In Thurston County 

Here in Thurston County, modern energy codes are required for all newly permitted homes and Rob Rice Homes meets or exceeds them all. All of our new homes now include solar panels and heat pumps, which makes them more energy-efficient and as a result, more cost-effective to operate.

The Best Finishes And Highest Quality

Rob Rice has been awarded the Best of South Sound’s New Construction award for several years running for good reason. Homebuyers know they can trust us to make their home dreams come true.
