Getting Started
Builders are experts in taking your dreams, ideas, wishes and budget and developing them into a working design that meets all codes, regulations, and industry standards. Their day-to-day work is channeling their experience, resources, and knowledge into a seamless operation.

Pre-Construction Phase
Building a home requires more than choosing floor plans and selecting tile. From financing and drafting to permits and construction, an experienced builder works for you as your guide to manage the entire process.

Construction Phase
Experienced home builders will already have a reliable team of sub contractors at their disposal. That way, construction is sure to run smoothly and consistently while ensuring your home exceeds standards and meets deadline. It’s the builder’s responsibility to make sure everyone is doing their part, and you should expect to receive regular updates from your builder during the construction process.

Post-construction Phase
As part of your move in experience, your builder will orientate you on the use and maintenance of your home. This includes detailing the location and operation of items such as the air conditioning system and electrical panel. After this meeting, you should feel confident and ready to care for all components of your new home.
