There are several steps in designing a custom home, as you can see below. A lot of these items are happening in the background during a design so our clients can focus on the fun stuff, designing and choosing what goes in your home. Typically designing the home will take 2-3 months then plan on another 2 months for engineering. These time frames can be drastically different based on the client. If there are many changes and long lead times to make decisions can easily push this process to over 3 months. Additionally, your community HOA review board can affect these time frames.
Typical design phase items:
Site engineering for soils, and ground stabilization
Boundary and topography surveys
Finish Selections and configurations
Foundation and structural engineering
Truss engineering and design
Mechanical design and calculations
