Plus, the one-of-a-kind, customizable homes in Talking Rock’s Outlaw Collection are perfect for those who want to speed up the custom-home on a custom-lot timeline. Save time with the Outlaw Collection, a process that streamlines the architectural, approval and construction process, allowing you to have exactly the home you want in short order. These homes are available with personalized options that include added bunkhouses, extended patios and rooms, and more.

The Outlaw Collection is just one offering at Talking Rock; the Ranch Cottages and new Dorn Home collections offer more choices, and more peace of mind, than ever.
