STAGE 1: ASSEMBLING THE PLAYERS

Our design team consists of four players, each with a goal of producing an exceptional home.

  • Homeowner – The homeowner’s responsibility in this process is to examine all of the input from our team, and make the final decision as to what stays and what goes.
  • Builder  Involvement at this point is to keep everything on track and maintain the group’s focus on objectives like budget, size, etc…
  • Architectural Designer/Planner – This person collects information from everyone on the team and translates those ideas into a set of plans. This is the person that understands the rules of design as well as building industry standards and regional building department codes.
  • Interior Designer – This is the person responsible for assisting in choices of style. They help decide on colors, paints, flooring etc…

STAGE 2: DETERMINING THE PRICE

The next step in the design process is determining the price of the home. At this point the builder takes the final plans in conjunction with the list of fixtures and finishes and “prices the home out”. This is a time consuming process but essential to our commitment to deliver your home on budget. Once we have determined the final price for the home we developed during the design process, it’s time to go to contract.

STAGE 3: EXCAVATION AND FOUNDATION

We’ve done all of our planning and we are ready to break ground. We establish the foundation, retaining walls and interior flatwork while preliminary work begins on plumbing. Additionally, we order any items that require a long lead time for production, like windows.
