1. Initial Consultation & Design Center Tour
Tour our Design Center....get inspired....and learn the difference in how we build.
We want to understand your motivation for moving and discuss your dreams for your new home; your ideal location, your lifestyle and your investment objective. If you don’t have land yet, select from our current inventory of building sites or we have connections to assist you in finding land.
2. Preliminary Budget Planning
We will discuss a preliminary estimate based on land costs, development costs, home size, features and specifications. Why settle for Off-the-Shelf plans? You can bring us a floor plan idea, look through our plan archives for inspiration or we can start from scratch. With a specific plan we can put together a detailed estimate so you can pick and choose from your wish list to meet your investment objective.
3. Design Agreement
We work as a team to collaborate with you to create a custom design to match your lifestyle and budget. Our in-house drafting department will prepare a preliminary floor plan incorporating all of the important design features from our initial discussions. Designing everything in-house allows for a quicker turn- around time.
4. Finalize Your Design & Estimate
At this meeting we will review your home plan, finalize any needed changes and discuss the finishes you would like for your new home. This will give us everything we need to complete your estimate. If needed, we’ll schedule a site meeting to discuss home placement and any site conditions. If required by your community’s restrictions, your plans and renderings will be submitted to the Architectural Review Board for approval.
5. Authorize Purchase Agreement
Your final plans, detailed itemized option list and Included Features list are all signed to complete your purchase agreement. To prepare you for the building process we will give you a list of decisions you will want to consider before your first selection meeting. With your initial deposit we can move forward and get building permits.
6. Construction Financing & Insurance
We have long standing relationships with several local lenders who can assist you with obtaining construction financing. Whether working with a lender, or self-financing, we will establish a schedule for payments due throughout the various stages of construction to completion. Clients need to obtain a Homeowner Risk Insurance Policy before construction begins.
7. Start Selection Process (*See Design Center)
Our Design Consultant will meet with you at our Design Center to start making your choices. Any upgrades or changes, that were not included in the original contract, can be authorized with a change order and payment for the choices during selections.
8. Construction Begins
Congratulations! With your approved building permit and financing in place we can put your home on our construction schedule and do the behind-the-scenes work to get ready to dig.
