The Phases of Building a Custom Home
Building a new custom home requires patience, careful planning, and attention to detail. You might be wondering where to start and what the process looks like. Understanding the phases of building a custom home allows you to be prepared for what’s to come. From finding the perfect custom home-building partner to designing your dream home and everything in between, Conrado Home Builders is here for you.
The first step in building a custom home is the discovery phase. During this phase, we meet with potential clients to learn about their dreams and goals for their new homes. We also make sure that we are a good fit for each other before moving forward. This is an essential step in the process because it ensures we are on the same page from the start.
After discovering what our clients want, we compare their dreams and goals to reality. We work with them to customize their goals to meet their needs and give them the freedom they deserve. We’ll then help them bring their vision to life by helping them find an architect or confirming their design meets their needs.
Once the design team is assembled, we work hand and hand with your architect, landscape architect, and interior designer to ensure the final design and finishes you choose are in alignment with your goals and needs. This process takes months as we ensure the home, as designed, is your home. Once that is confirmed, we prepare a detailed budget that captures the entire project as designed. This detailed process aligns the design with the budget, eliminating surprises and ensuring continuity from design to construction
Once your home’s design is finalized, we’ll begin the process of acquiring the necessary permits to build. We’re experienced in all facets of the permit acquisition process and will ensure that each permit is obtained and approved before moving forward. We’ll also stay on top of inspections throughout the home-building process to ensure they go smoothly while also keeping you informed along the way. We understand you have a busy life, so we take these tasks on, updating you as we progress.
After permits are obtained, construction begins. We deliver one-on-one service from start to finish and work with you every step of the way to bring your vision for your new home to life. Our team handles everything from breaking ground to final touches, and we take pride in paying attention to every detail along the way so that your custom home is built exactly as you envisioned it
We take care in hiring only the best, so should we encounter a challenge during the construction of your custom home, we can use our 550+ years of combined experience to overcome it. Whether that means changing the design to accommodate a new request or creating a custom tool so we can hand-carve an archway in your home, our team can make it happen.
The sky is the limit when it comes to customizing your home. We can make the impossible possible, bringing ideas to life through engineering marvels and custom solutions. Whether you have a specific vision in mind or need help turning your ideas into reality, our team of experts will work with you every step of the way to create a one-of-a-kind home that perfectly suits your needs and lifestyle.

Building is the most exciting phase of building a custom home. You’ll meet with our project manager to view progress weekly and receive weekly updates via email.

As we progress through the different phases of the build, you will meet with many people from our team, ensuring you will always know what is going on with your custom build.
Phases to Expect
The inspection phase is one of the first phases of building a custom home. Inspections occur all throughout the construction phase. This is important to ensure everything is being built according to plan and that there are no surprises later.
After the inspection phase comes the construction phase, which is when the actual building of your home takes place. The construction phase can be broken down into a few parts, such as the foundation, framing, mechanical installation, and finishing work.
Once the construction phase is complete, it’s time for the final inspection. At this point, the inspector goes through the entire home, ensuring everything matches the blueprints, and passes code. After passing the inspection, your next step is to move into your new custom home!
The day has finally arrived! Your home is complete, and it’s time to move in. We will do a final walk-through together to ensure that everything is excellent and to your liking. We also take the time to show you how to use every item in your home so you can get the whole experience of loving your home for its look and functionality. Once we have completed the walk-through and you are happy with your new custom home, you can begin moving in!
