Building a custom home should be a fun and rewarding experience! Collaborate with our team of design professionals to put all of your ideas on paper. We'll generate floor plans and 3-D models so you can see your dreams becoming reality. We call these preliminary plans.
STAKING YOUR HOME
Because we meet on your building site before design begins, we know where you want your home and drive positioned. Now is when we officially stake the outline of your home to confirm its location on the property. We always consider natural features like trees, slope, views and orientation in this process.
CHOOSING A BUILDER
It’s easy to choose a builder from one of our many pre-screened professionals. We check references and screen for quality work, attitude, ability and willingness to follow plans. If you already have a builder in mind, we'll be happy to meet and learn more about them.
These drawings list specific dimensions and performance requirements for all the materials that will go into your home to make it unique, structurally sound and energy efficient. Visually communicating these details helps ensure your home will perform the way we say it will.
We communicate with both you and your builder throughout the project to answer questions, provide updates, and check on progress. We also make site inspections at strategic times:
- during foundation
- during framing
- after the Ice House Roof™ is installed
- after insulation is finished, we test for air infiltration
- when the house is complete
- when the energy rater tests the home for performance after you have moved in
There may be additional inspections depending on the complexity of your home and for your assurance.
