Custom Homes
Teal Creek Homes believes the home building process should be fun and exciting. Our friendly and knowledgeable team is dedicated to providing a one of a kind home building experience. From the initial consultation to the completion of construction, you can be confident that you are getting the very best in quality and service. We build homes that stand the test of time, with many clients choosing us to build their “forever” home. Whether we build on your lot or you choose one of ours, let us build you a home that you will fall in love with every time you walk through the front door.
Initial Consultation
Whether you have a vision for your new home or have a good idea of what you want in a new home, our initial consultation is our opportunity to explore floor plans and features along with general budget. From there, we can talk about the next steps and get the ball rolling.
Getting Started
Once you decide to build with Teal Creek Homes we will get to work finalizing all the details. We will review the plans and specs and put together the full scope of work, including changes or modifications to the building plans. We also offer professional Realtor services to help you sell your existing home. Being able to partner with a Builder and Realtor under one roof can help alleviate financial surprises as well as assure you that all parties have your best interest in mind.
Laying the Groundwork
Once the plan details and finish details have been determined, we can begin to plan for construction; this includes selections for your new home. We understand that picking the right finishes or being completely comfortable that the color of paint picked goes with everything can be a source of stress. As a service to our Clients, our designer attends the finish selections meetings so you can rest assured that your new home will look and feel exactly the way you have envisioned. We also know that things change during construction, so we schedule small “blocks” of finish selection meetings throughout construction, rather than cramming all the decisions into one meeting. This allows us a level of flexibility that you just wont get from most Builders.
Starting Construction
Once the first handful of decisions has been made, we can then get your new home underway. The average time for new homes is 4-6 months, depending on size, location, and level of detail. We know that constant and open communication between the Builder and the Client is paramount to a successful project. We provide regular updates on schedule and will keep you informed when the next batch of finish selections are due. Proactively collaborating with the Client helps keep the project moving forward and ensures that everything is done right the first time….on time and on budget.
Wrapping up
As the home enters the final throws of becoming your home, our team will continue to work hard to make sure that all of your selections and details have been installed so that we can make any adjustments needed before we close on the home. Just prior to closing, we will schedule a formal walk through to review the home and fine tune the remaining details. At this time we will thouroughly cover the warranty; we pride ourselves on our responsiveness and follow through during the warranty period.
