Our process begins with an initial consultation where we get to know each other. During this meeting, we will discuss the goals of your project and answer any questions about our design and construction process you may have. We will determine if Blythe Custom Homes custom home builders is a good fit for your home building project and if it is, we will work together to establish a targeted budget.
We can help you design your dream home, or we can use established plans. Custom home designs are an additional cost to be factored into the budget. There are three steps in the home plan design:
This is the fun stuff. We go through a questionnaire and interview so that your vision, style, wants and needs are understood by Blythe Custom Homes. We want to look at homes you’ve found online, pictures of features you love, and discuss anything else that helps us meet your goals during the home building process.
We will create and discuss detailed specifications and budget that outlines all the aspects of construction. Realistically, it's difficult to make all decisions at this point, and we understand that. We are experts in our field and can undoubtedly adapt as we go along, but the more that gets decided upon during this phase, the less the risk of going over your budget. If a preconstruction decision cannot be made, we can help determine accurate allowances for you with our quality vendors and trades.
We will schedule a meeting with you at your home site to discuss orientation of the house, placement of house, and conduct a land evaluation (what trees need to be taken down and other prepping). We also will prepare a plot plan showing your future home on the property.
During construction, we have multiple walkthroughs with you. Additionally, you will meet with our experienced team of subcontractors and vendors to discuss plumbing, lighting, cabinets, paint, and more. You will meet with our team as many times necessary throughout the process to finalize selections and allow you to make good decisions on features that are important to you. Once we have completed construction, we will do a final walkthrough to inspect your new home.
