We get it, you want to have your own floor plan and get it priced by three different builders to find your best fit (price wise). Lets be honest though, building a home isn't like picking a car off the lot. There is allot more to home building then selecting a paint color and a few features offered from a list.
Most "high volume builders" are almost as close as you can get to simply picking your model and a few features, but what if you want more than that? What if you don't want the same model as every other house down the block? What if you want something that says YOU? That is when you look to a custom (small volume) home builder however; in this day and age the word "custom" is used too widely and is losing its real meaning in the building industry and that is when you need to really do your homework.
A Custom home means that you have a floor plan designed from your own visions, dreams and ideas, not somebody else's from a book. Custom means that you get to pick every detail in your home (whether its behind the walls or on them) and have everything tailored to your style. But don't let the word custom fool you into thinking that it's expensive! Custom is your vision, your ideas our experience and your budget.
Almost everyday we get a floor plan from someone whom had their dream home designed and they send it to multiple builders to compare pricing. Every builder is so different with their methods of construction and quoting that each quote this person receives won't be anything like the others and more often than not, they all exceed their budget. Why? Because the client does't have a builder guiding them through a design that will fit their budget and the designers are only doing what you came there for... to design a home.
Most people get nervous to design their home through their builder because they are also locked in to build with them too and this goes back to my first comment - "you want to have your own floor plan and get it priced by three different builders". It is a long term relationship, but we can guarantee that it is one you won't regret. Price shopping your builder out doesn't work like it used to. With so many methods of construction and unlimited features and designs, shopping for the "cheaper" guy will put you in a bad spot and you will likely get a home or service that doesn't meet your expectations or the industries standards (long term & short term) Every builder has a different standard that goes into their homes and for the client to know and understand those standards and the differences is very important!
So what do we, Vleeming Construction, do? We take all your visions, ideas and dreams and we design you a floor plan that will fit your budget. We will do our best to get you what you want and what you need into your designs and we won't quit until you are satisfied. If our design exceeds your budget then we start over at our own cost, not yours. If your budget is unrealistic to the house you want, we will let you know up front and educate you on what you could get for your budget. Once designs are finalized and construction begins, this service doesn't quit, it gets better. We educate you at every stage of the home and guide you through every selection. We also ensure that your are fully aware of all costs on your home and nothing gets done without your consent.
But what does a service like this cost? We include this service as part of our Design & Build package. We don't limit the details or revisions and we guarantee your satisfaction of the floor plan. For the build process, you can consult with us as much as you want or need at no expense to you. We believe in making the process as stress-free as possible and we know budgets are extremely important and that is why we ensure budgets are established on day one.
