We’d love to hear about your vision and welcome you to our new office and of course, view our showroom. We will then go through the preliminary design goals, preliminary cost estimates, and financing pre-qualification needs and of course determine if there are any possible challenges.
Ultimately, the initial consultation is where you’ll express your vision of the home you desire, get to know us and view our past projects and get an understanding of the home building process. Plus, you’ll leave with a directive list of the next steps in building your new home!
Now that you have an understanding of the framework required in building your new home from the initial consultation, the next step is to enter into a Design and Plan Development Agreement and off to work we go for you!
First, we must gather specific information to get ready to build. This includes; engineering, hiring the drafter for plan designs, HOA requirements review, a meeting to review and choose color features and design specifications. Based on your selections, the bidding process starts with subcontractors in order to develop a realistic preliminary budget based on the desired plan, finishes and site evaluation.
With our help, you will then deliver the above information and specs to your lender in order to receive a preliminary loan approval. You will also have a packet that includes; a reviewed site plan, drainage, covenants and restrictions to build ready for building permit submission. The paperwork and design process is complete at this step and then we’re ready to build!
With the planning work behind us, we are then ready to start vertical construction! First, we enter into a Construction Management Contract and begin the construction process. We use cutting edge software called BuilderTrend for scheduling and it hosts a homeowner account option so that you’re always on top of the process and well informed. Your account will include photos of the building progress as well as notes and information from the field.
We will meet you for on-site walk-throughs at different phases and keep you apprised as things move along. Our favorite walk-through is the final one – where we hand you the keys to your new home!
