Our perspective of the process
New Construction & Remodeling
Undertaking the construction of a home is a collaborative process, one in which communication and documentation is paramount during all phases of the project. We want our clients to feel empowered; confident in their understanding of not only the technical details in the construction of home, but also the workings of the construction schedule, and cost estimation. In a nutshell, we want our clients to feel that they play a integral part in the entire process. In the seeking of this end, we ensure that our construction process enables and encourages this collaborative process, through regular scheduled site visits and review with our clients, in addition to weekly progress reports via phone and email. Each project will be assigned an on-site project manager that will remain with the project from concept to finished home. Upon completion of the home, our clients will be provided a Home Owners Handbook which includes warranty and maintenance literature for appliances and mechanical systems, along with basic homecare and recommendations for scheduled services.
A Prepared Plan or a concept drawing
Through our relationships with local architects, we can provide a range of services in order to facilitate the production of a finished construction ready building plan. Whether it be from a prepared plan or concept drawing, we are capable of assisting our clients with drafting of an initial concept layout complete with building elevations sufficient for budget estimation. Once an initial budget is proposed for the project, the plan can then be taken to full architectural plans suitable for construction by one of our architectural firm partners. This process is most efficient in reducing some of the initial costs associated with custom home design, by completing much of the design prior to submitting the concept drawings to an architect.
