Bringing It Together

Once you’ve envisioned your dream home, you need a builder in order to turn that dream into a place you can live. They can take your ideas and turn them into the house that you will call home.

While design/build teams of architects and builders are becoming increasingly popular, the home in which you will be living will be the direct result of your contractor’s efforts and expertise. Depending on the breadth of your project, you and your builder will be in a working relationship that could last as long as 6 months. Therefore, it is essential to choose a company or individual with whom you have a good rapport, who has excellent references as well as experience with your type of project. Seek out a builder whose attention to quality detail willingness to listen to your concerns, and in-depth knowledge of the trades assures you a smooth road on the way to your new home.

Which comes first- the Architect or the Builder

The selection of a builder or remodeler is a major decision and should be approached in a thoughtful, unhurried manner. Allow plenty of time to interview and research at least two candidates before making your choice. Hours invested at this point can save months of time later on. At the initial interview, the most important information you’ll get is not from brochures, portfolios or a sales pitch, but from your own intuition. Ask yourself; Can we trust this person to execute plans for our dream home, likely the biggest expenditure of our lifetime? Is there a natural two-way communication, mutual respect, and creative energy? Does he have the vision to make our home unique and important? Is his sense of the project similar to ours? Will we have any fun together? Can we work together for at least a year? If you answer “Yes” you’ve found the most valuable asset -- the right chemistry.
