6 Steps To Your Dream Home

Our Process


What are your goals for your new home? We’ll talk budget, the scope of work, convenient payment schedules and more in our initial interview. Whether you have a clear vision of your dream home or need inspiration from our professionals, we’ll make sure that our team is the right fit for you and your family.


Once the initial budget and scope of work have been defined, the planning begins. Our team will work with you to turn the vision for your home into an actionable set of plans and construction documents. An appropriate design fee will apply.

If your project is a renovation or addition, we may need to incorporate an exploratory phase where we open up some walls and ceilings if necessary to determine the best course of action and feasibility (a fee may be required for this as well).

Once the plan is completed, we will provide you an estimate with allowances for your selections. 


Now it’s time to go shopping. You control a large portion of the budget here and can go for bargain or high-end finishes, appliances and more.

What’s your style? We’ve built homes that are Hill Country rustic, Texas chic, classic and elegant, clean and modern and much more! Looking for a combination of one or more styles? You have final say on all of the selections! We are there to guide you along the way.

Want to leave selections to an interior designer? We pledge to work collaboratively with all design professionals on your team. We are also happy to provide you with one of our interior design partners to assist in your selections (fees will apply). We will suggest suppliers and vendors that we routinely work with and do our best to help you stay within your budget. But ultimately, it is your choice. There are no cookie-cutter selections or tiered menu options. You get what you want, plain and simple. 

Proposal & Contract

We can now provide a proposal with a set price based on real numbers quoted by contractors who have been to the site and reviewed your selections. You will know what the bottom line is and it will not change unless you make the changes.


Now that the hard work is done, you are free to step back and enjoy the building process. Our clients typically take this time to bring the kids out, put handprints in the walkways, build a treehouse with scrap lumber or take on any projects they wanted to complete themselves. With no more decisions about cabinets, countertops, backsplashes or plumbing and electrical fixtures, you will have time to focus on the things you need to do, like getting ready to sell your current house or buying new furniture.

Follow Up

We stay in touch once your dream home is complete. We don’t anticipate problems, but sometimes things need adjustments or the movers dinged the walls. We schedule a 30-day and 90 day inspection in order to be proactive about addressing your needs. After that, we are always a phone call away!
