Our Process

Build on OUR lot (Arbor Village, Sawgrass, Autumn Ridge)

  • Select lot and floor plan - Selecting your lot and floor plan go hand in hand.  We will assist you in this decision and provide guidance based on budget and lifestyle.  We have several designs to choose from or can create a custom floor plan for you.
  • Prepare pricing and sign purchase agreement - Pricing begins with a standard list of specifications for the neighborhood.  We allow changes and upgrades.  Once pricing is finalized, we will prepare a purchase agreement that includes a fixed price and the list of specifications for your home.  We require a minimal down payment and a pre-approval commitment letter from a lender.  
  • Secure construction financing - Once the contact has been signed, we will finalize the blue prints and submit for our construction loan.  This process takes approximately 4-6 weeks.
  • Pre-construction meeting - Prior to construction, we will meet with you to discuss the construction process, and to review the plans, specifications, site plan, etc.  We will also finalize your exterior and rough-in selections.   
  • Construction begins - Construction time on your home depends on several factors including size, complexity, customization, labor, materials, and weather.  Once construction has started, most homes take 6-9 months to complete. 
  • Interior finish selections - At approximately the framing stage of your home, you will begin your interior finish selections.  Our office is complete with a selection room that showcases many of the sample items available to you.
  • Walk-through and closing - We will walk you through your new home to acquaint you with its features and the operation of various systems and components.  We will explain your responsibilities for maintenance and upkeep, as well as our warranty coverage and procedures.  You will work with your lender and the title company for closing.
