Our process begins with a meeting that lasts about an hour. During this meeting, you educate us about your vision for your new home, your functional space needs, how that functional space must flow, your lifestyle requirements for accommodating special needs, entertaining, age-in-place needs, and design style preferences for interior and exterior spaces. We also seek to learn about the lot on which your home will be built and target budgets to guide the design exercise. You will learn about us, our experience and our company's history and track record of performance.
Plan and Pricing Review
About one week after the initial meeting, we meet again to review the design sketches we created to represent what we learned from you. We generally meet over 90% of your initial requests and continue to refine the sketches based on our discussions during the plan review. Once we secure an agreement from you that the sketches meet your needs and wishes, we then present our terms to construct the home. At the end of this meeting, both sides are equipped to discuss the next step.
Shortly after the plan and estimate review meeting occur, a simple construction agreement is prepared and presented providing the buyer is ready for that step. Once the construction agreement is signed by both parties, the build process begins with a complimentary preview session with our interior design team.
Sketches are converted to CAD drawings, you work with our design team to select colors and selections, surveys and soil tests are ordered, permit packages are prepared, along with many other activities to get us to the building permit being received. You will meet with us at specific points during construction and complete the process with an orientation and sign-off on completion just before you close and collect your keys.
