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!
You have picked your community, floor plan and signed your contract, so now what?
Next up is picking out all the finishes you would like in your home as well as going over the floor plans to make sure all the details are there. We love greeting new home owners when they walk into our design studio for the first time. Honestly, we see a mix of emotions. Some can not wait to get started on this part. They have been on Pinterest, Houzz or other websites collecting pictures and information of what all they want in their new home. The other set of people walk in looking like a deer in head lights!! The thought of having to pick everything out and making sure it all matches is overwhelming for some. In comes our wonderful team to save the day!!
Landmark Fine Homes believes that we build your home not ours. With that being said, we want to make sure we have all the details in place that you want in your home. There are several meetings scheduled throughout the process of building your home. In the beginning you will come in for a Plan Review Meeting. This is where you will meet with our Estimating Department to make sure we have everything on your plans that you envisioned down to where the light switches are. Then we transition you into meeting with our Design Team. This is where you get to take all those ideas of finishes out of your head and bring them to life! The team does a great job at taking those ideas and matching them to products. During your home building process you will have one designer that is committed to making your home something that you will be proud to show off. Landmark Fine Homes also works hard at not making the process overwhelming. You will have several meetings with our design team where you can focus on certain areas of the home and not feel like you have to make decisions on every facet of the home in one visit.
Now, doesn't that sound easy and fun? It really is! Check out what this family had to say about the process!

Have you walked into our Model Homes and wondered who was behind the design? What about being at a friends house that you know has NO design eye yet their home is beautiful and was built by Landmark Fine Homes?
Meet the Team that helps make those ideas into a reality!
Kim Kelley works with all of our customers in designing their homes. Kim has been with Landmark Fine Homes for 12 years. She loves being able to see everyone's ideas on style and what is important to them. "I feel like I learn as much from the customers as they get from me" said Kim. Kim loves the challenge of taking someone's ideas that they bring in from Pinterest, Houzz, or other designer websites and work to make them fit in their home design.
Amy and Kaitlin Reeves make up our team who design and decorate all the Model and Spec Homes. They have been designing since Landmark Fine Homes started in 2000. They both love being able to be creative, try new things and love to see the projects come together. There is nothing better that to have something start as an idea and see it completed. "I look everywhere for design ideas. I might be sitting in a restaurant, a doctors office or a commercial space and I will always notice the ceiling treatments, floor coverings and wall colors. I love taking one item and designing a room around it. One of my favorite shows years ago was Trading Spaces. I loved how they would be given one object and then were required to design a whole space around it." Functionality of a room is also critical for this team. Looking at a room and deciding how the space is going to be used is crucial in making a house into a home. Kaitlin fills her days with walking jobsite with superintendents and making sure all the details are in place to make the design what it was intended. She said, "There is nothing better than being in the field and watching the designs become a reality."
This is a team you can trust when you are building your next home. You don't need to worry about trying to make all the decisions alone. You will have the Design Team at Landmark Fine Homes to help guide you in creating the home of your dreams.

She can help you make sure the whole house will come together and be something you are proud of.
