New Home Construction
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Hiring a design professional to design a custom home and all its moving parts can get expensive. Since we streamline the process by offering to design and build, we discount the design and construction drawings required.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Most clients don’t have final plans, so we meet and discuss how they live and what their needs, wants, budget and overall vision is for the new home. This helps provides a roadmap where we can begin a custom design. We’ll meet and review each new design sketch as we start to zero-in on a final floor plan, while keeping the overall budget in mind. After the floor plan is approved, we move to exterior elevations and the remainder of the construction drawings required. Once funding, engineering and permits are completed, we can begin the home! The overall work breaks down as follows; - Site work - Foundation/ In-ground Plumbing - Frame/ Windows / Windstorm - Electrical/ HVAC / Plumbing - Roofing - Insulation/ Exterior materials - Drywall - Interior Trim/ Cabinets - Paint - Final Electrical/ Plumbing/ HVAC - Counter tops/ Glass - Landscape There are hundreds of other steps intertwined, but those are the key benchmarks. As construction progresses, we are in constant contact and keep the client abreast of the schedule. Depending on the complexity, our construction process will typically take from 4.5 months and up to a year. Every project we work on is tailored to each client, as we aim to provide a truly custom experience. We try to keep our business as lean as possible, so we’re able to pass along this savings. We find this also helps with the communication between us and the client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our professionals come from the architectural design side and the material supply side of residential construction. It’s an excellent match as we’re very versed in all stages of a project.
