We first meet with you to understand your lifestyle, your ideal home characteristics, and your desired time frame and budget. If possible, we will also tour your property or desired property location. We can provide property search and identification services as needed. We provide you with preliminary sketches to help establish your home’s desired look and feel and to discuss floor plan, layout and budget. Our goal at this stage is to translate your hopes and wishes into the design of your dreams. We aim to keep the process fun, engaging and productive and to always meet or exceed your expectations.
Our design sketches are converted to construction drawings by our architect partners in the industry, ensuring that all appropriate construction codes and permit requirements are incorporated into your plans. Simultaneously, we prepare cost estimates for your review. We offer a highly transparent cost estimating process, basing our budget on bids from sub-contractors and adding our fee as a separate, percentage-based amount. With us, unlike a great majority of builders, there are no hidden mark-ups. Any cost saving we can achieve through competitive bidding in our sub-contractor network is passed directly on to you as the project moves forward. Your job documentation is always open for your review.
We provide exceptional construction management and trade oversight. Because of our expertise at the planning phase and our depth of construction knowledge at each step of the way, your project is more likely to run on schedule and with minimal need for change orders. Your dream home will be completed according to your wishes, will reflect your personality, and will exhibit the highest quality craftsmanship.
