Process to Build

Step 1:

Find a Lot, Find a Plan

Once you have found a lot to build on, we help you find a plan. We have many plans to choose from. After your plan has been selected, the builder representative goes over the options and provides you with a price to construct your home. Once a contract has been signed, your plan is sent to our designer/drafter to complete the design with any changes. Once all changes have been finalized and signed off on, permits are pulled to start the construction process. This process usually takes 60-90 days.

Step 2:

Make Your Selections

A unique part of the custom process is that buyers get to meet with our selections coordinator to go over the various options for the exterior and interior: brick color, stone, paint color, flooring, cabinets, appliances, lighting, etc. There are a variety of options to choose from, and the coordinator guides you through those selections and, once finalized, adds the selections to our web-based mobile application so that our vendors are aware of your selections. Once selections are made, it is very important to limit change orders because this can be costly and hinder the build process.

Step 3:

The Build Process

Building a custom home can take 6-8 months. There's approximately 85 tasks and 5 phases that require coordination of multiple vendors. After your home has been framed, a walkthrough is scheduled with the superintendent. During the walkthrough you, the customer, mark the location for light switches, cable, internet and electrical outlets. The superintendent also validates the closing time frame, at which point you can lock your rate. As the build process continues, additional walkthroughs are scheduled, giving you additional comfort during the construction process.
