You’re probably familiar with the benefits of building your own custom home. You know that it gets you a lot more control over the design, layout, and finishes. What’s not to love?
We created this post to help you understand some of the more technical aspects of building a custom home so that you can better understand the process before taking the next step toward creating your own masterpiece!
With Mills Custom Homes,
our design process comes with 6 steps:
Step 1: Exploring your options
The first step to building a new home is choosing where and how you want to build it. Our team at Mills Custom Homes will work with you to find the perfect lot and plan to create the exact home of your dreams.
With an open design and space to create your personal living environment, you can choose from a wide range of possibilities—from the size, shape and color of a room, to the flow of indoor-outdoor spaces and their placement around your home.
Step 2: Realize and Customize
Mills Custom Homes can take your ideas and realize them into a 3D rendering of the finished project. You can’t build your dream home without accurate plans, or knowing what it will look like before you start! A 3D rendering of your home lets you “walk” through everything before construction begins. This gives you the opportunity to adjust or change any detail, or find alternative options that fit into your vision.
Our team will also make sure to work within your budget, survey your property and can even prepare a design guide. This process can be overwhelming but need to to worry, Ryan walk you through the process!
Step 3: Finalization
At this point, you can start the process of financing your home. We will supply you with a detailed budget at the time of signing. Here at Mills Custom Homes, we want to make sure we get it right the first time. Our engineers will meet with you and go over every detail of your house design before construction begins. This allows us to make any changes needed until we have succeeded in our goal for each room. After all of this is done, we get ready for construction by closing on your loan.
Step 4: Build, Build, Build
Our goal is to design and finalize your dream home so you can move into it as quickly as possible! We will keep you informed throughout the entire construction process. If at any point you have questions or need to make changes, Ryan will work with you to ensure that changes, if possible, get made. Our craftsmanship shines through in the details. Unlike most home builders, we are actually custom builders. From start to finish, we are dedicated to providing you with an exceptional construction experience that exceeds your expectations.
Step 5: Moving Into Your New Home!
Moving into a new home is always exciting, but it’s even better when that home was custom built just for you. After closing on your new home, we will take you on a thorough walkthrough of all of the features in your new home to ensure you know how to utilize them, which will ultimately make moving day a much easier process.
Step 6 : Follow-up
We know that the home you build is more than just a house. It’s a statement of your family and your dreams, so we will work hard to ensure your satisfaction and will conduct follow-up walkthroughs at 6 months and 11 months post build to ensure your new home continues to exceed your expectations.
