The Executive Homes Process

Creating your custom home to fit your unique needs

We understand that your home is not only one of the largest investments that you will make, but it is also one of your most personal investments as well. As your builder, we take our role seriously. From design through construction and beyond, Executive Homes will guide and oversee each step to ensure a seamless process. Most importantly, we are committed to building you a quality custom home that you will be proud to call your own.


Design Consultation

During this informal meeting stage, we’ll simply get to know each other and give you an opportunity to let your ideas and objectives begin to take shape. By getting to know our clients and understanding their goals and vision for their new home, we’re able to begin the relationship that becomes the strong foundation for our homebuilding philosophy and process. We’ll also provide client, vendor and financial references for your review as well as reviewing financing options.


Design Guide and Site Selection

Taking what we’ve learned from our design consultation, we will compile a PROJECT SUMMARY which will outline the critical details of your proposed home – its finished living area, basement criteria, garage size, master suite location, architectural style and more – and how they apply to the specific site on which you’ve selected to build. We’ll also create a written set of preliminary specifications that detail the proposed features and finishes of your home. At this time, we will also provide a preliminary pricing estimate to ensure that we are meeting your financial objectives as well as your design criteria.


Conceptual Design

Once we defined the home design and price estimate, we transition into the design phase. These plans are the backbone of a custom home build and help bring the project to life. You’ll work directly with our design team to develop a conceptual plan that ensures your home is a true and accurate reflection of your lifestyle, with ample opportunities for your design input throughout the conceptual design process. The conceptual plans will include floorplans as well as exterior elevations for your home.


Construction Drawings

Once the conceptual design is developed, the process of completing construction drawings begins. These final plans begin to bring your custom home to life with a defined architectural style and design as well as room sizes and other job specific details. With more than two decades of experience, we have the knowledge and ability to turn your initial ideas into finished, construction-ready blueprints. Upon completion of the construction drawings and final pricing, we are ready to sign a purchase agreement.


Permits and Financing

Upon executing the purchase agreement, Executive Homes will proceed through the building permit process. During that time, you will arrange the project financing through a construction to permanent loan. Once the permits and financing are complete, we are ready to begin construction.


Pre-Construction Meeting

During this meeting, we will introduce you to the Executive Home team who will guide and direct the construction process. The team includes our Construction Manager, Project Manager, and our Administrative Team.



Plans finally leave the page and your home begins to become a reality. We bring our collaborative approach from the design phase with us into construction, ensuring your home is just as you envisioned with your input welcomed and encouraged. Throughout construction, you’ll be kept in direct communication with your construction manager.
