PREPARE FOR YOUR NEW HOME

It's best to be as prepared as possible before starting construction on your home. Our path to building on your land starts with creating a budget, choosing your floor plan and gathering important documents.

1. PREPARE FOR YOUR CONSULTATION

Select a floor plan, have some idea of your budget and bring your property documents (plat, cash sale, etc.)

2. MEET WITH YOUR BUILDING CONSULTANT

Schedule a first consultation to find out what options are included, make floor plan changes and discuss what features fit you best. A Purchase Estimate for you based on this information.

3. PURCHASE ESTIMATE

Review your line-item estimate, make revisions, pay your deposit and sign to move forward. Contract documents will then be prepared for you.
