Building Process


The building of a new home begins with three steps:

  1. The realization of one’s own ideas onto paper, or by selecting an existing blueprint which suits your needs.
  2. Customization of your choices in terms of layout, fixtures, and interior finishes by completing an interview / questionnaire at our office
  3. Signing a consumer friendly, fixed price contract will complete the process

Shortly after these steps have been achieved, the building process begins. It’s really as simple as 1,2,3!

We have attached a full schedule of the services we offer for potential clients to familiarize themselves with. To access it, click the link below and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at our office.
