Our Process for Designing and Building a Custom Home

 

INITIAL MEETING

We start with an initial meeting to learn about what you are looking for in a new home. We'll discuss design ideas, style preferences, location, and budget. You'll have a chance to look through our portfolio of completed projects and to meet some of our team members. You'll leave having a better understanding of what it means to build a new home, and we'll begin putting some of your ideas onto paper.

DESIGN AND PROJECT PLANNING

Next we'll move into the planning phase where we offer a full range of design services for your home. Expanding on developments from our initial meeting, we'll continue to work on perfecting the layout of your home. We'll help you in making informed decisions about the details of your project including size, interior and exterior style, as well as any sustainable living options you might want. At the completion of this stage, we'll provide you with accurate pricing and outline the specifications for your project. 

CONSTRUCTION

Once contracts are signed we will begin building your home. Throughout the construction process, we will continue to work closely with you determining design decisions for both the interior and exterior. We also provide an online portal where you can watch the progress of your home by seeing the project calendars, make your design selections, and keep in contact with our team about any questions or changes.

CLOSING DAY

The most exciting day of the project, closing day, will come after your home is all finished up and we have received a certification of occupancy from the town. From the day the contract is signed to the final closing meeting can take from 5 months to 7 months depending on the time of year and the level of customization of the house. By the end of the final closing between us, you and the mortgage company, you'll be the homeowner of a unique new home of exceptional quality and structural integrity.
