Phase One – Establishing Scope Of Work

Designing your new home starts out with us having a conversation with you and understanding the needs and wants of your perfect home. Then define the scope of work and budget to develop an outlined timeframe.

Phase Two – Initializing Design

After the preliminary timeframe is outlined we start defining the design concept and spatial analysis. Using sophisticated computer aided drafting (CAD) software the Custom Home Design team will create construction documentation and renderings. During this process we also start the selection process for exterior elements; windows, roofing materials, siding, and color palettes.

Phase Three – Implementing Design

After your custom home plans are finalized we can use our construction connections to put you in contact with the right contractor to build your dream home. Depending on the project you might also work with our Residential Interior Design team to fill your new home with your style. By the end of this process you’ll be living in your perfect new home.

What to expect from us:

  • To listen to you
  • To do our best while managing your project with speed & passion
  • To be flexible and responsive
  • To hear from us often
  • To adhere, and/or flag any changes to budgets, timelines, and issues
  • To deliver top-notch results
  • To be living in your dream home in the end

GHID is confident that you will enjoy your experience with us.
