FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Can I help design my own Home?
A. Absolutely. You can design a home to fit your specific needs. Whether you select a standard design, modify an existing design, or utilize our custom design service to create an original masterpiece of your own, you can help
design your new home, while at the same time making sure that local codes are adhered to.
Q. Can I participate in the construction of my home if I choose to?
A. Yes! You can decide how much, or how little, you want to contribute to the construction process. Regardless of whether you do much of the work, some of the work, or virtually none at all; the choice is yours. Many people are able to reduce costs by doing painting, insulation, or similar tasks, often building enough “sweat equity” into the house to satisfy down payment requirements, or to avoid having to pay PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance). This can reduce your monthly mortgage payment.
Q. What about obtaining building permits, project supervision and subcontractor scheduling?
A. If you want to get very involved, we will assist you in such things as obtaining building permits, project coordination, validating material deliveries, worker scheduling, quality control, local inspections or obtaining the certificate of occupancy. We are knowledgeable about the process, and know how to keep your costs down during the construction period. Alternatively, you could also choose to have limited involvement in the construction process. The choice is yours!
Q. Can you just build an outside shell and I finish off the entire inside of the home?
A. Yes! Depending on where you’re building, we have partnered with various lenders who support this idea, and are ready to lend you construction funds to get your project started. Contact us to learn more.
