Building Your Custom Home

What is the first step?

Once you have decided to build a custom home, you will need to purchase property that is suitable for what you have in mind. You can contact a real estate agent who works in your area to find the best property for your money. Once you own the property, call our custom home builders to schedule your free consultation. Our home builders can walk you through the process of turning your plans for a custom home into reality.

Do I need to own land before contacting you?

Ideally, you should already be the proud owner of a plot of land. However, if you contact our custom home builders prematurely, we can help you get in contact with real estate agents who are familiar with lots for sale. Once you own land suitable for building, we’ll be able to work with you to help you design and build your dream home.

Do you have references?

Yes, we have references that can give you a good idea of our building capabilities. During your consultation, we can show you past projects that are similar to what you envision for your dream home. Check out our gallery of custom built homes to get started.

How much will this cost?

Each home is different. After we evaluate the property and get some blueprints drawn up, we will be able to estimate the cost of your new custom home. The cost of your custom home will depend on its size, location, complexity of design, and other factors. To learn more, schedule a free consultation with one of our home builders.

How long before I can enjoy my new custom home?

New home construction can’t be rushed. The expected completion date for your custom built home will depend on weather conditions, the size of the proposed house, the complexity of design, and other factors. We recommend setting up a free consultation with one of our custom home builders to get an estimated timeline for new home construction.

Can you build in the winter?

Yes, we’re able to build custom homes in the middle of winter. However, you’ll need to keep in mind that we’ll have to wait for optimal weather conditions before we can pour the foundation and install the exterior elements of your home. However, once your custom home has been sealed off, we’ll be able to complete the rest of the project according to an estimated timeline.
