Own Land? Great! When you have your construction-to-perm loan, send us the information. Need a Lender/Loan? We recommend our preferred lender, who has a wide variety of construction financing available. Need Land? If you're working with a realtor, let us know when you find your perfect piece of land. Then, we can meet to walk it. Your realtor will be able to help you through the purchasing process. No Realtor? We can help. What areas are you interested in? What is your budget? We can help you search on MLS. Are you purchasing the land or do you need us to purchase it? (Only considered on a case by case basis).
Before we can continue, there are questions to answer: Are the soils tests done? If not, you will need to have this done during your study period. If we are purchasing the land, we will do this. Public water/sewer? Are there fees? Are they paid? Is your land within our service area? Contact us to see! Are there unique features to consider? Wetland, easements, etc? If in a community, is there an architectural review process that we need to go through?
Go through our Build-On-Your-Land packet, browse our online galleries, and let us know what you would like to see.
Once a plan is identified, we will meet to go over any questions, walk the floorplans you like, and discuss anything you would like to add to the plan.
Once pricing and plans are finalized, a contract will be sent (electronically or in person). A 10% deposit is required at contract.
When the contract is ratified, our designer will set up your design appointment. You will make all of your selections at this meeting. Send us your ideas, Pinterest boards, and wants so we can custom curate your design appointment to your taste!
Once your design selections are made, we work on getting approvals, permits, etc (This part may take a while!). Once we have your permits, your builder will walk the lot with you to determine the placement of your home, clearing, driveway, etc.
If you are handling the construction loan, your lender will need to pay draws to use per the schedule in the contract. Your construction manager will keep you up to date throughout the process. At electrical walk-through, you'll have the opportunity to add electrical options, determine outlet placement, etc.
Once complete, your project manager will familiarize you with all of the systems of your home, and answer any additional questions you may have before closing and moving into your home.
Once settled, enjoy peace of mind knowing you have a warranty, including a 1-year drywall warranty, as well as a 5-year structural warranty.
