17 Aug What to Expect from the Custom Home Building Process
While it offers a massive amount of control and customization, the custom home building process can be intimidating and full of unknowns. What is the process of home building? How much will it cost? How much time will it take? Here are Pasadera Builders, we offer a concierge-level service to that is designed to help our clients feel comfortable and informed throughout the “Design-Build” process. In doing so, we ensure that every single facet of the project turns out perfectly in the process of building your custom home.
Initial Meeting- Dream Phase
This is the fun stage. Although not every idea may be feasible due to budget or land options, it’s the time to dream and think of everything that you could possibly want in your custom home. After all, you’re spending the time and money to build your home from the ground up – it should be exactly what you are hoping for. Do you want that sauna in your master bath? What about an extra large range in your kitchen and a butlers pantry for hosting your parties? Do you want your kids to have a separate play room? This stage of the custom home building process is the perfect time to voice those ideas.
Design Phase- Hiring the Right Team
Next, you’ll need to find the right team and budget for your goals. We have multiple architects and designers that we partner with on a regular basis, or you are also welcome to choose your own architect and designer. The architect creates the architectural plans for your custom home, and the interior designer provides concept boards and inspiration for what the interior of your home could look like. As they create the plans, they seek your feedback to make sure your design and budget goals are met.
Once plans and specifications are created, our professionals at Pasadera Builders estimate costs and time lines for all aspects of the home – from cabinetry, to exterior finishes, to roofing, to tile and stone, to flooring, to the pool and landscaping. When you approve the construction budget and time lines, we can apply for the necessary approvals and permits to start construction.
We are your advocate. Pasadera Builders makes sure that your voice is heard by all members of our team to make sure things stay on schedule and in budget. We staff our projects daily, maintaining safety, quality and that the plans and specifications are followed correctly. Moreover, we communicate with you on a weekly basis to keep you in the loop on our progress and answer any questions that may come up.
Once all plans and budget are finalized, the building begins! Necessary permits are acquired, foundations are laid, initial structure is built, walls are constructed, and so on and so forth. Maintaining the highest levels of quality and avoiding mistakes can take time but we pride ourselves on finishing on time and on budget.
Last but not least, our team puts the final touches on the custom home building process by adding the accents, designs, and interior finishes that take your space and turn it into a home. From built-in bookshelves and wine racks to the exact kitchen drawer knob you prefer, we make sure that all the minor details fit together perfectly. Your dream home is ready for you and your family to move in and enjoy many happy years.
