Pre-construction meeting

Pre-construction meeting with your builder

You’ll meet one on one with your builder to review your building plans prior to construction. We want to ensure that we have documented your new home the way you want it built, with your special features. Here, we ensure that we understand each others expectations.


Framing and Mechanical Walkthrough

Once your home is under roof and prior to sheetrock, you will be invited to walk-through your home with the builder. Here, we will verify your selected finishes are completed to your preferences and specifications.

Homeowner Orientation

Homeowner Orientation

Once your home is completed, we will schedule your homeowner orientation. We want to take the time for you to view each room of your home and verify its completion and quality to your satisfaction. We will also educate you on the maintenance and functions of the home.



Prior to closing, you will once again walk your home to ensure that any and all concerns have been addressed. We will not ask you to close until the house is 100% complete to your satisfaction.
