- How long does it take to build a custom home?
The duration of the project will depend on many factors, including the size of the new house. We will prepare a realistic timeframe when we review your plans. In general, though, new home construction can take anywhere from 13 to 25 weeks.
- Are energy-efficient options available?
Yes. Our construction company uses foam insulation, air sealing, and energy-efficient appliances to keep your utilities bill down.
- If I am buying land to build a new home, what do I need to know?
If you are purchasing land with the intention of building a home, there are certain questions you need to ask your real estate agent. Make sure you find out if the property already has infrastructure in place for utilities, whether the land is zoned for residential development, and, if applicable, whether you can get approval for septic system installation.
- Will I need homeowner’s insurance during construction?
Yes, having a homeowner’s policy during construction will protect you from the cost of any damages that occur along the way.
- Can I visit the home during construction?
Yes, we will be happy to walk you through the property at any stage of development. Just let us know when you’d like to stop by.
- How is your pricing structured for custom homes?
We want to offer pricing that works for every customer, so we structure our rates on a flat fee/lump sum basis, but for customers who would like to be part of the management process, we also offer cost-plus-fee or cost-plus-percentage pricing.
