Custom Home Building Process – University Park

Building a custom home can seem like an extremely overwhelming process. Our team is committed to keeping things as simple as possible in order to take away the stress and anxiety that can come with building a custom home. We have created a strategic process to not only keep the building process on track, but to get you into your custom University Park home as soon as possible.


Milestone 1

During the initial building process, site selection is the top priority. After selecting the perfect site, we will begin meetings with an architect for preliminary design kick-off. We will develop a preliminary budget, which will be massaged and eventually finalized along with your home design. Once your plans have been completed, we will help you arrange your construction financing.

Milestone 2

Your foundation will be poured, the house will be framed, doors and windows will be installed, and all of the HVAC/Plumbing/Electrical will be roughed in. Your selected exterior building materials will be applied, including your roof material. At this time, we also begin to select and review your custom interior finishes.

Milestone 3

Drywall and texture are installed. Once this is complete, we will begin the installation of cabinets, countertops, flooring, tiles, and trim.

Finish Out

Milestone 4

Phase four starts the installation of appliances, plumbing and lighting fixtures, as well as your selected door and cabinet hardware. Your flatwork is poured and irrigation and landscape are installed. As the house nears completion, we will finalize painting and staining of cabinets and walls before doing the final sanding and staining of the hardwood floors throughout your home. Once every detail is complete and the punch out list is finalized, it’s time to move in to your brand new custom home!
