You have picked everything out so the fun can now begin! Meet our Construction Team. It is time to turn over the floor plans and selections to this group. Their job is to take all those ideas and selections you made and bring them to life.
Before we break ground on the project, you will have a Pre-Construction Meeting at our office where you will meet your Construction Superintendent. This is a opportunity for them to be introduced to you as a homeowner as well as your floor plans and selections. They will be briefed on all the details of the home so they have a clear vision of what you are wanting. From this point on they will become part of your family! They will be one of the main sources of contact throughout your build. Their job is to schedule all the trades, get inspections and make sure everything is followed on the plans. They are also the eyes of the company to make sure not only all your selections are fulfilled but everything behind the walls are built soundly and energy efficiently.
During the build of your home, Landmark Fine Homes will schedule several meeting on your jobsite. This gives us the opportunity to educate you on what is behind the walls and get feedback from you on how you want certain areas of your home to look like.
You are getting close to moving into your new home. Only a few more steps and it will be complete. Check back in next week to see what's next!
|Understanding Your New Hom|
Once you have made the decision that choosing a Certified Professional Builder is crucial, the next area to look at is, "What am I getting for the price?". This can lead to HORROR STORIES! Budgets spinning out of control and promises that were made verbally and never kept is a typical comment we hear from people regarding their previous experiences or those of family and friends. How horrible to start such a personal endeavor with those thoughts! But the reality is, you can do a great deal to avoid bad experiences simply through the way your choose your builder. Like the foundation of your home it is crucial to have a good foundation of expectations with your builder.
Landmark Fine Homes is a Custom Home Builder so we do not have a base price for each home. We want to give every potential homeowner the opportunity to make changes to our floor plans as well as pick out what amenities they would like in their home. After building homes for over 18years we have found that what everyone thinks of as standard or base is different.
We have developed a wonderful process that is FREE of charge to the potential homeowner. The first step to the bid process is finding out what floor plan you like as well as what lot you want to be on. We will then go over the floor plan to see if there are any changes you would like to make such as:
There is a lot of flexibility you have in designing YOUR home!
The next step is to find out what amenities you would like in the home.
Again- there is a lot of flexibility in the choices you can make.
Once that is complete, you will receive a VERY DETAILED bid on your home that will include the options you have chosen. When you sign a contract with Landmark Fine Homes you can be confident that unless YOU make changes during the build process you will not pay anything additional for your home, you will not have to worry about “upgrades” or wonder how much the home will cost you when you are ready to close.

If you are looking to make a change in your housing situation this year, knowledge is power. We decided to do a series on "Quick Tips" that you need to know before making that decision. It is important to not only look at the aesthetics of the home, but verify that the builder is trained and qualified to build the home.
Once you have decided the style of the home you are wanting (Farmhouse, Modern, Rustic, Mountain Lodge, Mid-Century Modern, Transitional, Urban, Tribal Chic, Traditional) you can create a list of potential builders who can meet those needs.
Be sure and contact your local home builder associations to verify that they are a member and in good standing. It is also very important to make sure they are a Certified Professional Home Builder. In order to become a certified professional builder, the builder must meet the following requirements.
Don't risk the biggest investment of your life with a builder that doesn't meet the Certified Professional Builder standard.
Fall is here and winter is right around the corner! Temperatures will begin to drop so now is a great time to take care of a few items.
