What to Expect During the Custom Home Building Process

Home Building Process

Do you want to own a home that perfectly suits your wants and needs? Of course you do! Designing and building a home from scratch is the best way to make this a reality. Oh, the possibilities . . . exciting, right? And if we’re being honest, maybe a little daunting too. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be at all. 

At Bill Roberts Custom Homes, we’ve mapped out a home building process that ensures your experience is positive and rewarding. Step by step, our in-house design/build team offers a tried-and-true system to ensure efficiency, time and cost savings, and your satisfaction at every step in the creation of your new home. 

Here’s what you can expect when you build a custom home with Bill Roberts: 

Home Building Process

Design

The first step in designing your custom home involves choosing your floor plan. You can opt for one from our selection or you can create a unique, custom-drawn plan. Next, with the guidance of a Design Specialist, you will customize the structure of your home to meet your personal needs and desires. Best of all, you’ll receive a 3D architectural rendering to get a sneak peek of your beautiful dream home. 

Once the floor plan is perfect, you’ve approved the pricing proposal, and you’ve signed a contract, it’s time to let your inner interior designer come out to play. From cabinetry to interior finishes such as flooring, countertops, paint, and hardware, you’ll choose the style you desire for your new home. Our expert Interior Designer will lend her knowledge as she guides you along the journey. Once you’ve selected your finishes, it’s time to start building.

Build

You’ve made all the design decisions, and now it’s time for the real fun to begin. Before we break ground, however, you will come in for a pre-construction meeting. Here we will discuss the next steps and answer any questions you may have. As construction begins, so too do our daily communication reports. Each day you can expect to receive an update regarding the progress our team of craftsmen has made.

With all the preliminary work done, it is time to start constructing. Here is the basic order of events you can expect to see in the home building process:

  • Foundation
  • Rough-in plumbing, heat, and air
  • Framing and roofing
  • Windows and doors
  • HVAC and plumbing 
  • Drywall and insulation

Along the way you’ll have walk-throughs to approve the following: 

  • Placement of outlets and light fixtures (electrical)
  • Tile (indoor) 
  • Accent brick or capstones (exterior) 
  • Layout of closets, pantries, and beams
  • Landscape design 

Finally, once the trim, cabinets, and closets have been installed; the walls have been painted; and final finishes have been added throughout the interior, it’s time for a punch list walk-through with your Project Manager, followed by a final walk-through. Once you’re absolutely satisfied, it’s time to close and move into your new home.

It’s a special day when you receive the keys to your exquisitely designed custom home. With Bill Roberts Custom Homes, you’re in good hands.
