Building A Custom Home: Part 2

Categories: Custom Home Design, Home Buyer News, Weston Dean News | Posted: January 11, 2019

Last week we introduced the process of building a custom home with Weston Dean, a premier New Braunfels custom homebuilder. This week, we will discuss the next phases of the custom home building process.

Once Phase 1 of your Design Build Process is complete with us, we’ll move on to Phase 2: Construction Services

Finance Construction: We’ll assist you in working with a bank of your choice and getting your draw schedule set up based on the benchmarks we’ll create for your project.

Clear Lot Meeting: This will be the start of the construction. We’ll meet with you at your lot to go over any final details, like tree removal will take place. After this meeting we prepare your lot for foundation.

Design Decorator Meetings: We have a vast array of options and the utmost expertise in our designers and design services. You will meet with our designers phase by phase of your home design to keep your project on schedule and easy on your end.

Communication and Construction Meetings: We know you have a life outside of the construction process of your new home. We’ve partnered with a software company to incorporate a communication system to keep track of your entire construction process.

Third Party Inspections: We hire third party inspectors to cross check anything we may have missed on our end. You have the option of hiring your own third party inspectors as well throughout any point of the construction process.

Final Orientation & Sign Off: We will meet with you seven days before your final draw for construction or closing. This will be our time to look over any touch-ups that need to be made and ensure that all aspect of your contract was met and to your satisfaction.

Blueprints

For many who want to build a custom home, knowing where to start is often the most puzzling piece. Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier New Beaunfels custom builder, offers a unique custom design and construction experience for our clients that take the guesswork and stress out of the custom building experience. We believe that building your dream home should be a positive and rewarding experience, so we’ve developed three simple phases to give you the most stress-free service as we construct your new home. Below is part one in your road ahead!

 Phase 1: Design Services

 Vision Meeting: During the first phase of your custom home building experience with us, you will meet with our project manager to discuss your project. This meeting will be detail-oriented and we’ll be able to address everything from your needs, wants, and budget.

 Lot Meeting: This is where you will meet with our team together at the lot to determine all factors of where your home will be placed, laid out, views, and all cost factors will be determined.

 Begin Design Process: After the two initial meetings have taken place, we’ll begin drafting a custom floor plan for you, or modify a plan we have already built that we can customize further to fit your vision.

 Site Evaluation & Refine Design Concepts: This is where the drafted floor plan of your home and the site evaluation will take place on your lot. You’ll be given an accurate cost proposal at this stage.

 Cost Proposal: After many years in construction, we’ve developed a system that is an industry leading cost calculation tool that will also function as a part of your contract.

 Design Revisions Based on Cost Proposal: This is where we take your budget and wish list for your home and come to an agreement to where you get what you want for the price you’re willing to spend.

 Contact and Final Plans: This is the most exciting part for us at Weston Dean Homes, because within 6-8 months we will take your vision and plans we’ve created together, and provide to you the home of your dreams!
