Stage 1

This is the preliminary work that sets the foundation of your home…so to speak. It’s important for us as custom home builders to not overlook the details in this step so we spend the necessary time to ensure we’re crossing our T’s and dotting our I’s. This step includes:

  • Lot Selection
  • Creating Preliminary Plans
  • Establish Specifications and Allowances
  • Finalize Lot Selection and House Plan

Pre-Construction / Planning and Permits

Stage 2

Though it seems early, we begin making selection to help us ensure all the products arrive when we need them to install on your new home. This is where you have an opportunity to work with our designer to help establish the look of your home. This step includes:

  • Select Products (Appliances, Finishes, Lighting, Flooring, etc.)
  • Secure Financing/Sign Contract
  • Deposit Payment

Lot Clearing / Foundation / Framing

It’s almost time to hand over the keys! This is the final step where we have the house inspected by the city to make sure it meets all health and safety requirements. Once we get the green light we can do a final walk-through with you to ensure everything is completed according to your expectations. Don’t worry--we include a professional cleaning to ensure a clean, brand new home. This step includes:

  • Detailed Cleaning
  • Final Inspection
  • Reviewing Insurance and Warranties
  • Pre-Closing Walk-Through
