Our Process

STEP 1: Pre-Build

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

Step 2: Selection

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

Step 3: Construction

This is where the fun begins. We can now pull the permits, survey the land, and stake out the lot for the construction to begin. Watch the exciting process as your home is being built from the ground up. This step includes:

  • Excavation and Foundation Work
  • Reviewing/Finalizing Selections
  • Framing
  • Rough-Ins
  • Electrical and Plumbing
  • Dry-Wall, Painting, and Landscaping

Step 4: Finalization

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
  • Closing on the Home/Move Day


How much should I expect to pay price per square foot?

It really depends. The site location of your home,  your selections, floor plan, upgrades and other customizations will determine the overall price per square foot.

How long will it take to build my home?

Again, this is varied based on several factors including location, square footage of the home, and weather. Our typical custom home ranges from 6-9 months for around 3,000 square feet.

Are we allowed to do any of the work ourselves?

Based on our buying power and relationship with contractors, we’re able to offer you custom home solutions at competitive prices. We think you’ll be more than happy with the quality of workmanship and savings we provide, but are always willing to talk through ideas.

Can you build on a lot that I currently own?

Absolutely! We will build on any of our clients’ lot and if you don’t have one, we’ll help you find one.

Can you modify pre-existing floor plans?

You bet! We work directly with the design team to make all the changes and tweaks until you’re completely pleased with the result. Because we’re a custom home builder, we’ve never built two of the same homes before.

You've convinced me, what's next?

Awesome! Please give us a call at (402) 201-4213 or fill out our Contact form to get started right away. We look forward to meeting you!
