How long does it take to build a custom home?

The building process includes several stages.  They range from design, financing, permitting, site work, the actual construction, and finally, move-in day!
 
On average, the design phase can take up to 8 weeks.  It then takes another couple of weeks for us to quote your set of plans.  Assuming you choose to move forward after receiving your quote and making any modifications, if necessary, it typically takes 30-45 days for your loan to be processed with the bank before we can start obtaining permits.  The permit process takes about a month. 

Once the actual construction of your new home is underway, it can usually be completed within 6-7 months.  This time frame, however, depends on the size of the home, as well as scheduling.  Scheduling inevitably plays a role in determining the actual length of construction because we feel adamantly about using the same set of sub-contractors and suppliers for every job, regardless of the clients’ budget.  The reason we do this is to ensure that we maintain the same quality of workmanship on each home we build.
