Looking to Build in the Fall/Winter? Start Planning Ahead Now!

by | Aug 1, 2014 | St Cloud Custom Home Design

The end of summer is rapidly approaching and soon you’ll be faced with family obligations and the holidays. The Design Team (St. Cloud MN) ensures that your home design vision will be fulfilled thanks to our personable approach and years of experience. If you are hoping to begin building your dream home in the fall or early winter, it would behoove you to contact The Design Team at your earliest convenience.

Contractors will want to meet with you before the ground freezes in order to meet your established deadline. The designing of your home is a multifaceted process that can be broken down into 3 phases:

Phase 1: Preliminary design based on first client meeting (these are not build ready plans)

For newly constructed homes, floor plans and one “road side” elevation is discussed, or the “lake side” elevation of the home in the case of waterfront property

Phase 2: Revisions & Fine tuning (These are not build ready plans)

In these meetings we discuss any feedback we’ve gotten from you, possible design recommendations, and finalize any revisions to your design plan. The “allowance for revisions” section of your work order allows for 2-3 hours of revisions. We will keep you updated as to how many of the allotted hours have been used.

Phase 3: Final Construction Documents (permit and construction ready plans)

At this phase, The Design Team advocates a pre-construction meeting with the chosen contractor, all sub contractors, the designer and the homeowner to come to a unified understanding of the client’s expectations for the project.
