How long will it take to build my home?

The timeline of the build depends on the size and complexity of the design, as well as the decisive speed of the client. On average, once the plans are finalized and a building permit is approved, site preparation and construction takes about 12-15 months. For a more specific timeline estimate for your home build, please call us to discuss.


What if I want to make changes during the building process?

We understand that no matter how thorough we are in the planning and development stage, you may still want to make changes during the build. We will work with you to achieve your vision as best as possible, while clearly communicating how the alterations at this stage will affect the budget and timeline of the build.
