THE CUSTOM HOME BUILDING / HOME RENOVATION PROCESS

Initial Contact

To begin the construction of your new home or home renovation, simply call, contact us online, or visit the Care Free Homes office in Fairhaven, MA, and meet with one of our building project consultants. We will schedule an appointment to meet at your home and discuss the custom home construction or home remodeling project.

Initial Site Visit

One of our design consultants will meet with you at your home for our initial meeting. Together, we will discuss your needs, wants, and the desired outcome for your project. It is preferable to discuss your budget ranges up front to ensure a realistic project scope. Discussing the budget initially will save time and energy while creating the project scope and design.

Once budget parameters are established, we will revisit your needs and expectations in order to reach your desired outcome. Simply give our design consultant an overview of what you are trying to accomplish. Let us know what you currently like and dislike about your home. We will discuss a strategy and plan that will ensure that your new home meets your expectations, fulfills your needs, and enhances your lifestyle.

Leaving the first meeting with budget parameters, scope of work, preliminary sketches, and preliminary material selections will allow CFH Custom Builders to price the home building or renovation project.

Contract (Detailed Job Specification)

Our second meeting can take place at your home or in our Fairhaven, Massachusetts, office. During this meeting, we will review the budget parameters, scope of work, preliminary sketches, and building material choices made during our first meeting. Our custom home building design team will discuss pricing and seek a preliminary commitment from you in regards to scope and pricing. With your commitment, we will produce detailed job specifications and a construction contract. Once we enter into a construction contract, a deposit is required to enter the design stage.

Design Stage

Our team will meet with the designer to produce working drawings. Initially, approval is sought on floor plans and elevations. Usually, this is a multi-meeting process during which the layout and details are refined. Once the floor plans and elevations are approved, the drawing can be completed. With the plans completed, the necessary building permits are obtained.

Building a house is a complex and detailed process that requires professional management. Prior to construction, CFH Custom Builders has planned and scheduled your project to ensure timely completion.

Construction Stage

CFH Custom Builders employs the construction industry’s most skilled craftsman and trades contractors. While the work is being completed, our team will take every precaution to minimize disruption to your normal living conditions. This includes daily job site cleanup and securing tools and equipment. Keeping in contact with the home owner will ensure that you are kept up-to-date with our work progress and schedules. It is our goal to make the home building or renovation process smooth and enjoyable.

Completion of Project

The day you have waited for has arrived on time and on budget. Our team of professionals will complete a final walkthrough with the home owner to ensure complete satisfaction. During this walkthrough, we will address any outstanding issues you may have with the project. Matters that need attention will be taken care of in a timely manner.
