Step 1: Free Consultation
Whether you are just starting to think about building a home, or you already have a lot purchased and a blueprint in hand, we are happy to offer a free consultation. During this meeting, we will discuss your family’s needs and wants, your budget and propose a timeline for completing your home. Our experience building homes that vary widely in size and style allows us to accurately and honestly answer the many questions you may have about the process and cost. After the consultation, we will put together a preliminary design and budget before moving on to the final design phase.
Step 2: Design Process
We offer an in-house architecture service, which often saves you a significant amount money on the design process. Since you don’t need to hire an external architect, you’ll have more money to put into the home itself. By designing your home ourselves, we are able to create customized plans that fit your lifestyle and your specific building lot. During the design process, we will discuss square footage, finishes, layout, flow and other important aspects of the home. We take into consideration your obvious needs, such as number of bedrooms and bathrooms, but we also consider the small details, such as where your breakfast nook should be situated to make the most of the morning sunshine.
Step 3: Budgeting
At Griffin Concepts, Inc. we understand the importance of a detailed and accurate budget. We carefully listen to the needs of our customers to make certain we create a budget that is both feasible and realistic. We are straightforward and honest with what the entire project will cost so that no corners have to be cut to finish within your budget and timeline. If major changes are made to the plan after the contract is signed, we will thoroughly discuss the impact on the budget with you prior to making these changes so that you are fully aware of any extra costs or delays.
Step 4: Contract
There are many different ways to structure a contract between clients and builders. We can help explain the differences in contract types, and help you decide which is best for you based on complexity of the project and your building timeline. Once you have selected the type of contract that works best, both parties will sign and work on your dream home will commence.
Step 5: Preconstruction
We are 100% committed to quality, lasting construction, which is why we employ the most reputable engineers in the Valley to engineer our soils, foundation and structural framing as needed. Though some competitors believe in cutting costs anywhere possible, we feel a properly engineered home is far more important than saving a few bucks on corners that should never be cut.
Step 6: Construction
The duration of construction will vary depending on many factors; including, size, location and complexity of the project. A typical 2,000-3,000 square foot home will require approximately 1-2 months of planning, budgeting, permitting and preconstruction. The same size home will require approximately 5 months of active construction.
Step 7: Completion
GCI is dedicated to customer satisfaction, and to providing a 100% complete home at the time of closing. We provide a 1-year warranty on all workmanship.
