Determine budget and financing needs that are acceptable to you and your lender.
Conduct site analysis and estimated cost of site preparation
– Permits, soil tests, topographical survey, determine access to utilities
– Prepare a site plan reflecting the location of your home
Develop floorplan and exterior design
You may select from our library of plans, bring us your own floorplan or work with us to design a custom plan.
All plans can be modified by our in-house draftsman in order to meet your needs and budget.
Estimate of cost to build
Once you approve the floorplan and elevation, we will work up an estimated cost to build your home within 7 business days or less.
This estimate will include generous allowances for key components of your home which include but not limited to: Site preparation work, appliances, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, flooring surfaces, counter tops, cabinetry, doors and hardware, trim work and exterior features such as brick, stone and landscaping.
Complete Mechanics Lien Contract – See our BYOL Procedure statement
We will prepare a detailed ‘room-by-room’ amenity worksheet that will define everything to be included in the contract price of your home
At contract signing, you will sign off on the floorplan and the amenity worksheet
Meet with our interior designer
We provide you with up to 8 hours with our interior decorator. She will be at your disposal to help you pick the colors, surfaces, fixtures, doors, brick and stone to make your home your style!
Meet with our construction manager
Once you have your financing in place, we will schedule a construction meeting with our construction manager. He will work from a set of construction plans and your amenity worksheet to ensure that everything will be built as per the contract
Construction- Let’s get building!
We will begin construction as soon as your financing is in place and funds are available. Depending upon the size and complexity of your home, you should expect the home building process to take between six months and one year. Our construction manager will give you a better estimate upon completion of the construction meeting.
After touch up items have been resolved and the final walk-thru has been completed, you will then be ready to close on your new home!
