How It All Begins


The Process

Every step of the way Creative Design Homes will work with you to ensure you are comfortable with the price and the services we provide. An initial project evaluation is required to assure that we get specifics about your project. Once this is done we will provide an estimate of cost which includes a request for authorization to proceed. The request for authorization to proceed incorporates and details a deposit to secure our services. After receiving your authorization and deposit, a second meeting is required to finalize the specifics so that your custom design can be created based on your selections and specifications to establish final cost. Once all details and costs are approved a contract is generated.  The contract will reflect a price which includes details for down payment and once it is signed and payment is received you will be on your way to having your project completed just as you specified.

This Process is mainly referred to as Design Build. Design Build is a system of contracting in which one company performs designs, bidding and construction under one single contract. As the customer, you are the most important member of the housedesign-build team. Your wishes and ideas drive the design, materials, selection and budget.

There are many advantages to choosing Creative Design Homes as your Design Build Contractor. A Design Build Contractor will design while carefully estimating the construction costs to stay within your budget. When an independent designer is generating a design for a client they tend to over design, they may design to make something look appealing to a client without considering cost and therefore can potentially generate cost overruns. As a Design Build Contractor Creative Design Homes is able design within your budget. Decisions can be made during the design of the project based on the budget rather than the design dictating the cost.

A Design Build Contractor will draw your plans to government specifications. Often times when plans are drawn by a independant designer plans are drawn so that they are appealing to the client yet they need to be updated to meet government regulations. For a set of drawings a professional architect will typically charge about 6-8% of their estimated amount to complete your project. With Creative Design Homes as your Design Build Contractor you will only pay a fraction of that cost.

  With both design and construction in the hands of the contractor, there is a single point of responsibility for the quality, cost and completion of your project. With Creative Design Homes as your Design and Build Contractor, your project is “Designed to Meet Your Budget and Created to Exceed Your Expectations”. In most cases any additional costs is limited to only the unforeseen or additional changes in design.
