  • 1. Initial Consultation

    Understanding Your Vision

    We begin the process by asking you to share your vision for your ideal custom, luxury home – inside and out, roof to landscaping. If you have magazine clippings, pictures of finishing touches you love, website images of rooms or exterior details you like – perfect! We will take your ultimate wish list and show you how they would transform into your future real-world home.

    We’ll listen to your budget and home design criteria. We’ll determine your favorite color palettes, etc. We’ll talk about your landscaping wants and wishes. We’ll show you ideas and home examples. If you have not found a lot and are still searching for that perfect location, we can help you find it.

  • 2. Preliminary Plan

    The Details – Your Floorplan Comes to Life

    Incorporating all of your input we will then present you with a preliminary, detailed floor plan and front elevation accompanied by a detailed and realistic budget proposal.

    This budget will be the cost to build the home with every detail accounted for from landscaping to flooring and lighting allowances, from roof to foundation. Once we have agreed on the budget, amenities, specifications and allowances, we will prepare a Building Agreement and move forward to prepare a full set of engineered construction drawings that will be ready to permit.

  • 3. Breaking Ground

    Your Dream Home Becomes Reality

    We embrace the fact that you and your input are crucial to building your custom dream home to reality. To ensure that everyone is working together and on the same page throughout the process we begin with Our Kick-off Meeting. At this meeting you will personally meet the key professionals who will create your home including the home Construction Manager, your personal Interior Designer and the individuals responsible for the various stages of creating your home.

  • 4. Selecting Finishes & Fixtures:

    Making it Easy and Enjoyable

    Based on your input and your collaboration with your Interior Designer we will prepare a component finish schedule on the finishes and fixtures you specifically selected for your home. Your Interior Designer will accompany you as you select your cabinets, countertops, tile, appliances, etc. and will offer their artistic expertise on choosing accents such as ceilings, arches, niches, built-ins, and more. With our guidance, pricing information and samples, this may be the best shopping experience you’ve ever had!

  • Our Promise to You

    Serving You from Beginning to End

    Together with your Interior Designer, your Construction Manager, our Office Manager, the onsite Craftsmen and Construction Workers, etc., together we will work with you as a cohesive team to create the custom home that luxuriously showcases your personal style.

    Our promise is to make your home design and build process completed on time, on
    budget and with the end result creating an exceptional experience that will last a lifetime.
