This discussion of your house plans or architectural renderings will help us better understand your needs. If your house plans are in-process but not yet finalized, we can work with you through the final steps. If you’re still searching for the best plans, that works, too. We’d love to have a look at your ideas.
We’ll provide you the big picture of what it’s like to build a custom home with us and why our software improves the process.
This initial meeting provides you solid direction for next steps in the process of building your custom home. If you need draftsman or architect references, we have them. If you plan to purchase land, we can visit the property and give you perspective on that as well. You’ll leave this meeting with your specific questions answered.
MAYBE YOU’VE NEVER HEARD THE TERM “PRE-CONSTRUCTION SERVICES AGREEMENT.” IF YOU’RE BUILDING A CUSTOM HOUSE, YOU SHOULD CHANGE THAT.

For one thing, builders don’t price apples-to-apples. For another, builders are never of equal caliber.
Building a house is one of the largest investments, in terms of both time and resources, that you’ll make in your lifetime. You’ll have to live with the decisions you make today for years to come.
