Building Process

Choosing Your Homesite and

Designing Your Plan

If you haven’t already purchased the property for your new home, Steve is happy to assist you in choosing a lot/land based on many factors including location, direction, slope, home site size, price point, and school district. Our goal is to design the home to compliment the home site, without sacrificing the natural beauty of the property.

We offer an in-house architect who can assist you in the Design or we can work from a 3rd party set of plans acquired from an architect or an online designer/architect resource. It is always helpful to start collecting pictures and floor plans of homes that fit your needs. If you have already acquired a full set of construction plans and detailed specifications, we are happy to bid and provide you with a proposal for your project. We understand that modifications to your plan may need to be made. We are here for you to evaluate different options and scenarios to the project if needed.

Pre-Construction & Contract

Once you approve the architectural plans and budget pricing, we will be ready to finalize the contract price. You will be presented with the plans, pricing, and detailed specifications, allowances, and time to complete the home. There are several up front items that need to be done prior to construction.

  • Financing for the project has been secured.
  • Septic Engineering and Permitting
  • Building Permits (per county)
  • ​​Homeowner Association and/or Architectural Control Committee Approval
