Our unique “Custom Home Program” provides the in-house services necessary for those who prefer a fully customized, one-of-a-kind home. Our team member and award winning Architectural Designer will customize a plan of your choice, or design a one-of-a-kind original. Our comprehensive Design-Build program eliminates a trial and error approach to planning, design and building a quality custom home. We have created a step by step process that we call “Seven Steps to Custom Home Construction.” Our program has proven to be a reliable process and has produced great results. Our goal is to partner with you and your family in a way that is efficient and effective in achieving your new home goals and objectives. Our design-build program begins with an in depth discussion, careful listening and then proceeds to capture your vision, clarify your dreams and establish your goals and objectives. The following outline is an overview of our seven step process to systematically move you through the planning and design process in preparation for construction. Following each step is a brief summary the activities and actions taken along the way.
Our building program starts with a thorough discussion and review of your family’s needs, desires, taste and budget. Using our 12 page checklist, and years of experience we can analyze everything from your design ideas and preferences for interior and exterior finishes, to the latest technology, site planning and financing options. The initial goal is to realistically determine the overall feasibility of your project.
The next step in the process is to develop the preliminary elevations, floor plans and specifications based on the criteria outlined in step one. With this information, we can update our estimated construction costs and determine if any changes are necessary to maintain your original design and budget objectives.
With preliminary plans successfully completed and in line with the target budget, our design team will produce working drawings. These blueprints will enable us to consider and resolve the architectural and engineering aspects of your home and prepare us for final construction planning.
At this point we finalize selections and construction documents as well as site and construction planning. With the planning decisions and pricing complete, we can confidently move forward and approve the Building Agreement.
With the Building Agreement and blueprints completed we are equipped and prepared to finalize the appropriate financing and secure building permits prior to construction.
Finally, with planning, design, financing and permits in place, we begin the exciting process of construction with anticipation of the reality of your finished custom home.
This comprehensive plan eliminates a trial and error approach to planning, designing and building a quality custom home. Our goal at Kristopher Homes is to assist you in realizing your new home dreams. Creating beautifully designed homes of the highest quality, with a commitment to an efficient and cost effective process, builds your future as well as ours.
