Planning and Budget
So you'd like to build a home and you aren't sure where to start? We'll sit down with you and walk you through a comprehensive step-by-step plan that will help you understand the process and plan a budget that will work for you. Once that is established, you will know the range of options available to you and the fun begins!
If you already own your land, or once we help you find it, we will conduct a site accessibility study to determine exactly what needs to be done to prepare for your new home.
