Lots of discussion. It’s a process that develops your new home in several steps. Our designers will help you decide the larger issues (the size of the home, how many bedrooms & baths, garage capacity, indoor & outdoor space requirements, what you need and want for your family, etc.), and we’ll look at houses you like to help guide the design and layout of yours. Once a basic design is developed, we’ll refine it with you until you’re satisfied that the final rendering truly captures the home of your dreams. 

Yes. We will give you a complete estimate based on our final determination of your new home’s design, size, construction materials, etc., so you can move forward in securing the financing from your lending agency.

We provide some of the best warranties in the industry on HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. We warranty that your new home will be free from defects in workmanship & materials for one year, free from defects in applicable systems for two years, and free from structural defects for ten years.
