Work with bank on Pre-approval

You can work with your bank or we can provide some options that we have worked with in the past. 

Complete the New Home Design Questionnaire

This is meant to help guide you through the thought process of what details and finishes go into a house so we can provide an accurate estimate with appropriate allowances. The more details the better!

This is where that Pinterest board will come in handy! Beyond walls and windows, outlining the specific functionalities you envision. Do you dream of a gourmet kitchen with professional appliances? A home theater with immersive acoustics? Clearly outlining these details ensures builders factor them into their bids, avoiding costly surprises later.

From luxurious marble countertops to energy-efficient windows, every material choice impacts the final cost. Specifying desired materials upfront allows builders to provide precise estimates and avoid ambiguity.

Every change you make after the initial bid comes with an additional cost. By providing extensive details like desired fixtures, plumbing layouts, and even landscaping preferences, you minimize the need for change orders and keep your project on budget.
