homebuilding process with Weston Dean

When you choose Weston Dean, a premier New Braunfels custom builder, as your builder of choice for your dream home, you’re signing up for not only a great home but a great homebuilding experience. Read on to learn about our unique process for delivering you an amazing home in San Antonio.

There are 3 major phases of the design-build process with Weston Dean. First, we help guide you through the design portion. The second phase consists of construction, and the final stage involves putting you in your new home and backing it with a guarantee. We’ll cover each of the 3 stages briefly throughout this post, but you can refer to our Design Build Process page for extra details!

First, the design portion of the process. We’ll schedule a design & lot meeting to discuss your homesite and home design options, then get to work on drawing up a custom floor plan from scratch, modifying an existing floor plan, or perfecting one of our impressive floor plan options. You’ll have the opportunity to fine-tune any details before we move forward, determine cost, and hammer out a final contract and plans for you to daydream about.

Next, construction services will begin. We’ll help you work with your bank to obtain a construction interim loan and determine a plan that best suits you. Once your loan is closed, your lot will be prepped for groundbreaking and for the foundation to go in. You’ll get to work with our top-notch design team during this stage and start choosing design elements to be used throughout your home. Whether your preference is country comfort, Parisian chic, a striking modern look, or anything else, we like to say “your imagination and your pocketbook are your only limits here!”

You’ll have multiple meetings with the contractors and will be able to view your home’s progress through our innovative online Client Communication program. Of course, you’ll be able to reach out to us whenever you have questions or concerns–we’re here for you! Our third-party inspections will guarantee that your home is soundly built, and we invite our clients to hire their own third-party inspectors for yet another perspective. One week before closing you’ll have a walk-through to check for any final touch-ups or fixes to be made before you move in to your new San Antonio home.

Once you sign off during the walk-through, the final changes are made and you’ll get to move into your dream house! Weston Dean works hard to protect their customers from any damages or fixes, so we have partnered with ProHome for a 24/7 warranty management program. You will be taken care of with our 1 Year Craftsman Warranty, 2 Year Systems Warranty, and 10 Year BB Major Structural Warranty trio.

When the paperwork is complete and you’re all moved in, you’ll get to enjoy your brand new Weston Dean home! We are dedicated to providing homes our customers love, so if you’re building new in San Antonio, choose Weston Dean.

Our Vision Views, Continued

Categories: Custom Home Design | Posted: March 22, 2019

Happy family in pool of a Weston Dean Custom HomeA few weeks ago, we discussed three of our popular and revered custom design styles: The Spanish Revival, The European Style, and The Hill Country Contemporary Style.  Each of these carry with them our guarantee of high quality materials, construction, and most importantly, attention to every detail you can imagine.  Our goal, after all, is to provide you with the home of your dreams, and we at Weston Dean Custom Homes are excited to work with you each step of the way to ensure your complete satisfaction.

Today we’d like to continue our discussion of our Vision Views, otherwise known as our tried-and-true architectural designs and floor plan options.  These include our Traditional Style, our Texas Country Style, and last (but certainly not least!), our Custom Features.

Traditional Style
Our focus here is to emulate everything that makes a home great and livable in the modern age without losing any part of what makes a traditional home so beautiful.  With today’s emphasis on minimalism, slick surfaces, and high-tech visibly integrated into every single aspect of your life and creeping into today’s architecture, we understand that much of the rich, original aesthetic of home living has disappeared over the years.  We seek to bring that back, surrounding you with comfort and splendor in your custom home.  Even better, we can preserve that while giving you every modern technological advancement you might want without it feeling or looking out of place.

Many of the features utilized in our traditional style custom home include:
-Clean lines and masses
-Metal or otherwise flat rooftops
-Full plate, extra large glass windows
-Stucco or horizontal wood siding

Texas Country Style
In a similar vein of our Hill Contemporary Country Style, this vision view is incredibly popular in our San Antonio custom home communities.  Imbued with and exhibiting sophistication, this home design uses the influence of local and regional materials to achieve an unparalleled elegance.  Many of these feature stonework that is more blended in nature, containing what’s known as “luders and tans” rather than white limestone often chosen in previous years by other home builders.  This architectural style, in our humble opinion, is a gem wholly representative of what we love most about Texas.

You are likely to find several of these design choices in a Texas Country home:
-Low pitch roofs, made of metal or composition
-Rustic feel to more contemporary
-Country wood and stone interiors
-Stone exteriors

Custom Features
If you can’t decide between these (believe us, we understand!), we might suggest another option entirely: Custom Home Features.  You have your own special preferences and style, and we’re more than happy to accommodate you!  After all, your home is yours, and should reflect what you like and hold dear.  Many custom home owners start by considering options for their kitchens, bathrooms, energy efficiency, outdoor living and more.  There are no limitations here!

We hope that this has been helpful!  If you have any further questions about Weston Dean as a company, our custom home building process, or would simply like to get started on a brand new home, don’t hesitate to contact us!
