STEP one
Consultation

Tell us about the home you've always imagined. We want to hear more about you, your family, your ultimate wishlist, and your ideal budget. Where do you want to live? Are you considering a cozy neighborhood lot or a spacious estate parcel? Do you have a plan in mind, or do you want to start the design process from scratch?

Getting to the bottom of what's most important to you allows us to craft a proposal and get to work building your dreams. Our team has the knowledge and experience to guide you toward a suite of custom features that fit both your inspiration and budget.

STEP two
Plan Collaboration

Once we've agreed on an initial budget and list of features, our design team will work with you to create a detailed floorplan with a carefully considered room layout and exterior elevations. At this stage, you will select your architectural style and build on your initial inspiration. Many of your custom amenities, energy efficiency features, and other details important to your lifestyle are considered and added at this time.

How you plan to use your home is at the forefront of our design discussions, and we will advise you at every turn to keep you on budget while we focus on crafting your vision.

After your home has come to life in our modeling software, we will formally bid your home and create allowances based on your wishlist and inspiration. Once the plans, specifications, and budget are approved, a contract can be executed.

Finishes & Selections

Our in-house designer will work closely with you at this stage to pick the flooring, tile, appliances, lighting, plumbing fixtures, and other details that you will see and touch every day in your new home. We can help you identify your personal style and bring your inspiration to life through your selections.

We coordinate appointments with our incredible local trade partners and showrooms to give you access to industry-best products and finishes - complete with experts to guide you and keep you on track. Can't make it in person? Through our online project management software, you can ask questions, see product photos and information, track due dates, approve pricing, and work with our team and trade partners - all from the comfort of your home.

Construction

At this stage, our experienced production team will deftly bring your vision to life. We have cultivated a construction process that produces the highest quality homes both on-time and on-budget. We are proud of the relationships we share with local tradespeople, contractors, and suppliers who share our passion for uncompromised craftsmanship.

One of our dedicated Project Managers will be your point of contact throughout the construction of your new home. Through our software, you can ask them questions, track updates, view site photos, and interact from wherever you are. Milestone in-person walkthroughs will be scheduled to review key phases of construction, allowing you to further customize things like switch locations and closet shelving layouts.

Building a home is a highly collaborative process that doesn't end after the initial design. We make it easy to stay engaged and connected from the foundation to the final clean.

STEP five
Energy Efficiency Certification

Our homes include building envelope and indoor air quality practices that exceed building codes and contribute to their excellent energy efficiency and performance. Throughout the design process, you may select myriad features that further contribute to this efficiency.

We include both HERS scores and Pearl Certification with our homes to document the home's overall energy efficiency and increased value. These reports ensure accurate appraisals by outlining both the visible and unseen performance features of your new home.

Move In & Warranty

At this stage, we finally hand over the keys! We are proud of the homes we deliver and want you to rest assured that our relationship does not end here. We will help familiarize you with your new home and walk you through its systems, functions, and features, and provide you with contact information for utilities and select trades.

Our generous warranty will begin at closing, and our software will help you track any punch list items that you would like to have addressed. Throughout the warranty period, you will have access to the same online communication features you enjoyed while the home was under construction, and we are happy to answer questions and help you with anything that may come up.
