Have a few questions about how building on your own lot works? We thought you might!
Can you build anywhere?
We have a set of approved locations in which we will build on your own lot. Generally we try and build within close proximity to the communities that we are already building within. If you own land within our approved locations – we would love an opportunity to discuss further!
Does it cost more to build on your own lot, than in one of your communities?
The cost to build a home within our communities or on your own lot is the same, where the differences lie are with variable site development costs. Examples of these additional costs would be tree clearing, long utility runs, additional lot grading, long driveways, large landscaped yards, additional permitting fees, storm water management, demolition of structures on site.
How long does it take to build on your own lot?
From the time you sign a sales agreement to moving into your new home – the total time is anywhere from 12 – 18 months. This timeframe includes finalizing plan designs, financing, permitting, etc. This is a little longer than the construction time within our developed communities, because of variable and additional site development.
Can we bring our own vendors and subs?
We run our offsite builds, the same as we do within our communities. You will work with a Project Manager who will build your home from start to finish. In order to keep efficiencies and continuity, we utilize the same vendors and subcontractors. Rest assured, we work with the best of the best in the industry!
Can we bring our own blue prints/floor plan?
We will start with one of our award winning floor plans and customize from there. To help our customers visualize their new home and various options/upgrades, we have our decorated models as resources. We find our customers use this as a valuable asset when building their new home.
Do we have to go to all the different vendor showrooms to pick our selections?
We have developed a seamless and painless selection process! You will be paired with a Selections Coordinator who will work with you throughout the entire building process. We have a designated Inspirations Design Gallery where you can see most all of the selections you will need to make. If you would like to visit one of our vendors to choose from a wider array of selections, you are more than welcome to do so!
Will you help me find land?
If you are searching for land, we recommend working with a realtor to help you through that process. Once you have identified land (within our approved locations), and have it under agreement – we can take it from there!
