Initial Consultation

We would love to know more about you, your interests, ideas for your new home, and expectations. We would also be more than willing to tell you about who we are, what we do, and how we can help you. Therefore, we begin our process with a pre-scheduled and free initial consultation.

The initial consultation is the most crucial step in the entire home building process. It allows you to gauge and compare us with other custom home builders. In addition, it helps us immediately determine whether we can add value to your project or not. Because suppose that we are not the best option; then, we can provide you with recommendations as to which company would be a better match for your project.

After the talk, we will give you a document that details our initial projection of how much your new home would cost. This is our estimate, and we give it free of charge. You can use this to compare our rates with other builders or secure your funds for the project.

Contract Signing

When you decide to hire us, we will set another appointment to discuss your project in more detail. We will talk about who you want to be responsible for specific tasks. For example, you can have your new home’s design done by the architect of your choice.

We have an in-house designer who can work with you on the design. We can also be in charge of pulling permits, scheduling the inspections, and selecting the subcontractors.

After deciding on the specifics, we will discuss our terms and draft a contract that you can review before signing. If you wish to clarify anything in the contract, we would be happy to sit down with you to discuss them.

Pre-Construction

After you sign the contract, we will begin the pre-construction phase. We will work on your designs, construction plans, and other deliverables in this stage of the home building process. The permits will be obtained, the materials will be procured, your finishes will be ordered, etc.

Custom home building in Chicago can get overly expensive without proper planning. This is why this stage of the process can sometimes take months.

Construction

The construction phase officially begins when the permits are ready. This is the stage of the project where we execute the plans we developed during the previous phase.

Homeowners are usually not as hands-on as in the previous phase. However, to keep you in the loop, your project manager will be communicating with you every now and then to bring you updates.

Turnover

When your new home is ready, a city inspector will visit the site to check our adherence to building codes. If everything is in order, the city inspector will provide you with a Certificate of Occupancy. Finally, you can enjoy living in your new custom home.
