Build Your Home Wisely

Budgeting and Other Costs
There are several costs to consider when building a custom home: design, construction documents, construction materials, permits, county or city fees, land development costs, professional consultants and other costs. Our sales team is here to help provide your custom home building experience with direction and project management.
Choose a Home Builder Wisely
Hiring a home builder can help you better build a custom home. The right home builder can also help you determine if there are features on your site that may cost you more such as steep slopes, utility deficiencies, rock outcroppings, etc. They can also inform you if construction requires more permits and other problems that may come up.
There are a lot of home builders in the market today but do not just choose a builder that offers you the lowest price. Your highest priority should be on quality, not the price. Keep in mind that this will be your permanent home; it needs to be the best in terms of design and construction.
Hire a builder with several years of experience building homes as they are already experts in the field.
