Cairn Custom Homes will guide you through every detail of building your dream home!
If you are coming to us to assess the suitability of a lot you are considering or purchasing a lot we are affiliated with, we will walk the lot with you and discuss potential placement and other factors important to research.
Floor Plan Design
We offer a library of floor plans that can be modified to best fit your needs. We can also work with our architect to design a new plan based on your desires. We encourage you to show us your photos, pinterest boards, magazine clippings - any document that provides inspiration and illustrates how you would like your home to look and feel.
Based on the size of your home, we are able to provide a base price using our standard inclusions. We meet with you to discuss the specific features you would like to have in your homes, and will come up with our recommendations for allowances, in order for these upgrades to be factored into your loan amount.
We have had the pleasure of working with many lenders, and are happy to recommend a lender and title company to handle construction-permanent financing. Building a custom home requires that your loan settlement occur prior to construction starting on your new home.
Our team handles all of the paperwork involved in obtaining the building permit from the local jurisdiction. This includes, but is not limited to, working with our engineers create the site plan to comply with building setbacks, easements, and other restrictions; and collaborating with our architect and structural engineer to complete the full set of blueprints, ensuring that your floor plan meets all local building codes.
One of the many advantages of building a custom home is that you are not limited to a pre-selected list of options. We will provide a detailed schedule and guide you through meeting with our vendors to design your kitchen cabinetry, select your individual slabs of granite, layout your lighting design, and more! We appreciate that each homeowner has a distinct style, and we will help you achieve your desired style with the finishes you select for your home.
The selection process begins prior to home construction, but will continue through most of the construction time. During construction, our project manager will work with our trade partners to ensure that your home is built to the highest quality standards. We welcome your visits to see your home progress, and enjoy the excitement in seeing your dream come to life. We will have a number of pre-scheduled meetings to walk the home with you, including a pre-drywall walk through to place electrical components and structured wiring, such as surround sound wiring.
You are able to move into your home when the county has issued a Use & Occupancy permit. Prior to that, you will meet with the project manager to conduct an extensive walkthrough of the home and review house maintenance. After move in, Cairn Custom Homes will visit you to perform touch ups necessary as the home settles in its first year. We hope you enjoy your home for many years to come!
