Process

We build Custom Homes On-Your-Land in North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee. If you own your own land or need help finding that dream home site, we can help!  This is a different process than building in cookie cutter subdivisions so make sure the builder you choose has the experience and knowledge to help you avoid the surprises that can pop up during on your lot construction!

Construction Agreement

Once we have your home plan chosen, we can start your construction agreement. At your construction agreement meeting, we will make any modifications needed to your plan and get the ball rolling with your selections!

Pre-Construction Meeting

Before construction begins, you'll meet with the construction manager to go over all of the details of your home and the home building process. This is also when we will set up utilities in homeowner’s name and begin the septic permit process.

Pre-Construction and Site Prep

Right before construction begins, we'll be prepping your home site. This is when you'll need a commitment letter from the bank and a construction loan in place.
