The main purpose of this step in the process is preparation for construction to begin. Whether your needs are land allocation and plan design or neither, we will work with you to accomplish these steps in the process. While assisting in the plan design we are able to give preliminary budgets and estimates to help guide you through the design. Upon completion of the home design, we will send the plan to an engineering firm to design the slab and, if needed, other structural components of the home. Once the plan and engineering are finished we are able to give you definite pricing for the home.
This stage in the process also entails permitting if within the city limits, as well as financing. Your lender will need specific documents including the plan, engineering, and budget in order to finalize your loan.
On the building site, we will need to locate where the house is to be placed. Experience and thoughtfulness is crucial in this step to take into account sun orientation (mostly during the summer months), drainage, utility locations, and drive access.
