Building Process

Site selection

The start to any custom home project begins with site selection. Paul and Melani can work directly with you during site selection providing useful information regarding site-specific development costs, site features, and design considerations. All custom home building sites present opportunities for unique design features, and some offer challenging obstacles to overcome. Professional guidance from an experienced custom home builder or an architect/designer may simplify the selection process and reduce unnecessary expenditures.

Design process

Once you have your site selected, the design process can begin. A great home design that fits the desires of the client is the foremost key to a successful custom home building project. Our in-house design services have produced some of our best work and satisfied the most demanding clients. We use the services of talented draftsmen to oversee our designs and provide complete working drawings. If you require a professional architect, we retain the services of various professionals. We are also happy to work with your architect of choice.

Material selection and cost analysis

During the completion stage of the working drawings is when we like to begin the material selection process. Paul and Melani will walk each client through every phase of construction, guiding them through a thorough material selection process that will provide the foundation for cost estimating. Preliminary pricing is provided during this process to determine the estimated cost to build and develop a targeted budget. You will have the opportunity to meet with some of the professionals who will be providing products and services in the completion of your home. Prior to construction you will be provided with project specific blueprints and a proposal that detail each aspect of your custom home, including the specifications of materials.


The construction process is the most important stage of the project. All of the up front time invested in the design phase and during the materials selection creates a smooth functioning building environment so that you can enjoy watching your vision come to life. Paul oversees each project personally to ensure the level of quality his clients expect and deserve. Although Maryland can present a variety of weather conditions, we strive to keep projects running in a timely fashion.

Post construction

Your new custom home will be delivered after thorough inspections by finishing contractors and multiple inspections by the builder, personally. Our professional cleaning crew will follow behind the touch-up crews and complete a final polish of your new home. They assist us in monitoring the fulfillment of our finished product in the most exacting detail, so that nothing is missed prior to delivery. Upon delivery we will provide a tour of your new home, and give guidance to the operation, use, and care of the components. Over the course of the following twenty-four months our warranty provides you with timely corrective action regarding your custom home.
