Building a home with us is truly a luxury experience. Once you make the decision to go with Anderson Homes, we will begin the process of designing your dream home. This process will go through a series of phases:
Phase 1: Conceptual Plans
This phase starts with an initial architectural design meeting (generally 1-2 hours) where you meet face-to-face with our designer to begin laying out your new home. We will listen to your desires and will begin creating a digital concept drawing of your home.
Phase 2: Revisions
Once the concept drawing is completed, we will work through a series of revisions to refine the initial concept to your liking. During this phase we will visit your land/lot so that we incorporate the views/topography offered by your land/lot.
Phase 3: Selections (prior to agreement)
Once you start the final design process you will also begin selecting the items you want for the interior and exterior finish of the home. This starts with exterior (brick, stone, stucco, roofing, etc.) and continues throughout the interior (appliances, plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures, flooring, paint, tile, etc.). With a custom home, you have the freedom to select a wide range of materials – not just the limited choices at your builder’s base specifications. Many builders are either allowance based , meaning they give you a set dollar amount for finish amenities or have you make selections after you have signed an agreement with them. Given our extensive experience, we can say with confidence that you will be well over budget if you make your selections after contract signing. Know exactly what you want prior to signing – knowledge is power!
Phase 4: Proposal Review
Your proposal review meeting will consist of reviewing, in detail our base building specifications, the pricing of your selections and all costs associated with building on your lot/land.
Phase 5: Final Plans
Once you are satisfied that all your needs have been met, we will move to a final set of plans that we will use to build your dream home.
