When someone hires a builder to build a home, there a various processes that the customer could find themselves apart of. The process we have grown into is a process we call “Design Build”. Our Design Build process is divided into three phases, each carrying specific tasks and a separate cost. As each phase concludes, it marks a critical step forward, providing you with comprehensive details to seamlessly transition to the next milestone in your home-building journey. Below, we detail these phases, underscoring how our approach ensures optimal flexibility and potential savings unmatched by any other home construction methodology. Discover with us why our process is the preferred choice!
FIRST PHASE – Concept and Schematic Design
The Concept Design or Schematic Design phase is where we show you the potential look and feel of your future home. It’s a key step in turning ideas into detailed plans. We use 3D walkthroughs, HD images, and an initial floor plan to illustrate your home’s design, focusing on both aesthetics and practicality. This phase begins with a meeting with you to organize all your ideas and photos. Then we begin integrating them into the design, ensuring your vision is accurately brought to life. This phase typically takes 2-4 weeks to complete,
SECOND PHASE – Technical Design + Bid
In the Technical Design and Bid phase, we focus on the Construction drawings and detailed planning of your home. You’ll receive a comprehensive list that outlines all the specifications, giving you a clear picture of the materials and selections included to build your new home. We also provide a firm price as well as an estimated timeline, so you know the cost and how long it will take to build your new home. This phase is all about getting the details right and preparing everything for construction. This phase typically takes 4-6 weeks to complete.
THIRD PHASE – Construction
The Construction phase is where everything comes to life. All our planning now moves from the drawing board into action. It’s the most exciting part of the process, as you see your dream home being built right in front of you. Our skilled team ensures every detail is perfect, making your vision a reality. This final step is more than just construction; it’s about creating the place where you’ll make lasting memories. This is the thrilling moment when your dream home becomes a reality! It typically takes 3-4 weeks to obtain a building permit, but while we are waiting on that we are scheduling and purchasing materials. And once we have our permit, we are off and running! There is a broad range in how long it will take to build your home, but I would prepare for anywhere between 6-12 months. More on the schedule here – “It’s going to take how long?!”
