Custom Home Design Process
A major part of our custom home design process is helping you decide on a floor plan that best fits your needs and preferences. This helps to give you a starting point for a layout and general design, then let’s you adjust the specific custom home design elements and features. Our custom home design team will work with you hand-in-hand through our design process to create the best home of your dreams.
- Research & Pre-design – The best place to start planning your custom home. Our professional custom home design team will work with you on the following items to get a better idea of your vision:
- Creating a budget
- Creating a timeline
- Discussing expectations
- Research (boundary surveys, site cost, soil test reports, and HOA guidelines if applicable)
- First floor plan – This is the first plan and aerial layout of your custom home that uses the items discussed during the pre-design stage. During this stage you will make decisions about the:
- Size of your property
- Flow of the home in general and making sure that it aligns with your needs
- Locations for each of spaces including the garage, mudroom, closets, and entrances
- Subsequent renditions of floor plans – Having seen the first layout and floor plan, chances are that you will need/want to make changes. Through this stage of the custom home design process our designers will work with you on the different renditions and floor plans to ensure all the kinks and changes are worked out. The designer will also be able to provide more interior details at this time as well as exterior elevations. You’ll be given a much better idea of the sales price during this time as well.
- Final Plans & Construction drawings – Following all the changes and renditions of your custom floor plan, will come the final plan. This plan will consist of specific details such as measurements of rooms, entrances, square footage, flooring types, windows, countertops, etc. You being the homeowners will have to sign these final plans before we can pass them off for framing and foundation to begin.
