A Guide Through the Phases of Building Your New Home

When you’re building a new home, it’s critical that each detail is perfectly attuned to the lifestyle of you and your family. An experienced design build firm with a unified team of licensed architects, residential designers, interior designers, and construction professionals, guides you through several stages from initial land review to the final build completion (and beyond!) to assure a smooth process.

Advisory Phase
The first step is to evaluate land before making a purchase or to assess the feasibility of the property you already own. During this advisory phase, we’ll discuss the desired scope of your new home and begin to gather the information necessary to prepare a preliminary design and budget. If there is already a home on your property, we’ll offer advice about the best way forward for you – from a whole home remodel to a complete tear down and rebuild.

Preliminary Steps
JDR’s design-build approach offers you a team of professional designers and licensed architects with a track record of innovative, award-winning projects, all under one roof. This saves you the step of searching for a separate architect, interior designer, and construction company as planning gets underway. Our pre-design and architecture phase includes an initial project review, scope of work and preliminary budget.

During pre-construction, the vision for your home will become more clear. This phase includes architecture and design proposals, constructibility reviews and value engineering studies, trade partner walk-throughs and bidding, permit approvals, and much more.

When building begins, you can rest assured that our subcontractors are fully vetted professionals with a history of integrity and quality craftsmanship. Your job site will be supervised by a dedicated JDR Project Manager committed to communication and transparency with you, every step of the way.

Our mission to “build clients for life,” includes a commitment to dedicated client care after your home is built. The post construction phase includes maintenance services, warranty assurance, and more. See details here.

Your home is your retreat, the place where you want to feel safe, comfortable, and inspired. Our unified team guides you from blank slate to beautiful new home with a proven collaborative process developed to make your experience satisfying and enjoyable.
