Turner Customer Home Process

Our Custom Home Process

Do you already have the architectural plans for your custom dream home? If so, bring them to us. We will use our knowledge and experience to ensure you have thought through all of the details and we will plan each choice and selection to ensure the end result is what you envision.

Do you have an idea of what you want, but no plan yet? That’s fine, too! We will match you with an architect to plan the right footprint for your home.

Builders often leave the final details, such as finishing selections, until last. And those details are often passed on to someone else to manage. This leaves much of the final cost and budget until later in the building process, giving home owners uncertainty regarding their costs. It doesn’t have to be that way!

Right from the beginning, we will work to provide fully detailed plans that give you the costs for fixtures and finishes right from the beginning. No outlandish surprises! And we see it through from beginning to end. Building your custom dream home is about making the right choices. The first right choice you can make is to call Turner Custom Homes.

Step One: Initial Consultation

Meet with the the Turner Custom Home sales team and we will discuss your overall budget and the size of home you need.  If you need a plan we would bring in our architect to help you develop your dream home look and floor plan.  Once you are happy this that you would move into step two which is getting into more detail on the finishing of your home.

Step Two: Firm Price Quote

We will than start on work with our design team to start to pick out the specifics for your custom home.  The only way you can get a true and accurate price for custom home is to make your selections. During this time you will select your interior and exterior design features, including brick/rock, granite, tile, carpet, interior and exterior paint colors, doors, and trim. Just breaking your custom house into allocated budgets often causes the new home build go over budget, we want you to make your exact choices.  We want you to make your selections so we can know exactly what everything is going to cost.  Once the firm price quote is developed and you are happy with everything you see.   Now we are ready to sign a contract and get started building your home.

At this time, the builder will verify that all selections and locations specified in the plans are followed by the contractors. At the completion of this step, all inspections required by the city or county, including framing, mechanical, plumbing, and electrical rough must be passed prior to installing insulation and moving to the next step.
