Our homes, additions and renovations are mostly "custom designed". What this means is that we can build any plan that you may have or we can assist you in getting a customized plan for you at a very reasonable price.
The custom design plan can start with nothing more than the dreams in your head or can be as well defined as a full set of working drawings that need to be "tweaked." Our staff can help you with these needs. Any pictures, sketches, plans or thoughts we can use to design your dream home will be appreciated.
As your plans are developed, we review them with you every step of the way. This way we can stay on course with your ideas of what the finished product should be.
The process starts with an interview where we gather any information you may have. We make any appropriate suggestions which we think can help.
We begin to draw the first floor plan. We review the first floor plan with you when the first draft is complete. We again make any suggestions that we think can help.
You make your changes, if any, to the first floor plans. We then make any corrections and draft the second floor plan.
You make any changes, if any, to the second floor plans. We again make any suggestions that we think can help.
We make any corrections to the second floor plans and draft the elevations (drawings of front, back and sides).
You make changes, if any, to the entire plan. We again make suggestions that we think can help. We correct the plans. Together with you, we develop specifications such as type of windows, siding, roofing, flooring, etc., etc., etc.
If modular, we go to the factory for pricing. If stick, we send to the lumberyard for a lumber list and pricing. If panelized, we send to panel company for pricing.
Construction Budget – Once we get the pricing from the modular company, lumberyard and/or panel company, we complete the construction budget and review pricing with you.
This entire 8 step process can take 2 to 3 weeks or longer based upon a number of factors but most importantly your availability and quickness of your decisions.
