Every home is unique to its owners and a custom home is the most unique.
A custom home is the most involved type of construction and one that skill and process – most importantly, process – keeps on track and ensure the success of a home build.
The process is not just a “step-by-step” procedure but also a means by which to confirm that the buyer and the builder are well-suited to work together.
Achieving your successful project relies on us being able to ensure that clarity and compatibility exists between yourselves and our company.
Design and budgets are the most important things that need to be agreed upon between the buyer and the builder long before any project begins.
At Duromac Homes our process looks like this:
- Discuss floor plans ideas (Bring in a floor plan concept that you like or review sample ones from extensive history). This will determine the layout and overall dimensions of the home.
- Discuss land and lot location. Every lot has its own challenges and the geographic concerns of its area be taken into consideration before commencing the project.
- Determine and discuss a list of NEEDS and WANTS for the new home.
- Discuss budget
If compatibility between the builder and buyer has been determined, a series of emails will follow. These emails will provide clarity on various questions – from both parties – and to help narrow design features. Once these are completed, a budget can be determined.
Meet to sign contracts, set tentative closing dates and verify all specifics related to the design and layout.
Permits, Applications and Construction
Once the contracts are in-place, Duromac Homes will move forward on acquiring all the necessary Permits and Applications are completed and submitted. Once these are approved by the associated municipality construction can begin on the project.
Rough-In Walk Through
Nearing the end of all the rough-in’s of Electrical, Mechanical, and Plumbing we invite you to the jobsite to do a walkthrough and ensure that there aren’t any changes. A walkthrough gives an opportunity for the buyer to truly “feel” what the drawings and ideas only hinted at.
As the project nears completion, we are able to finalize all the numbers before turning over the keys and ownership to the buyer.
A final walkthrough is encouraged to ensure that everything has been completed to the buyer’s satisfaction and that everything is in “working order” before completing the project.
