See if Design/Build will work for you?

The traditional process of building a custom home involves going to an architect/designer, designing plans, and then hand selecting a few builders to get a quote for building their plans.

Every client including you, has a budget they want to stick to.  Whether that budget is $400,000 or over $4 million, there still remains a budget.  Did you know that 9 times out of 10, the bid to build comes in over budget for clients who use this approach? What more is that 50% of those who chose this route end up not building at all.  They end up buying a resale home that they have decided to settle for because they just cannot take any more over budget news.

What happens when your plans go over budget?  You have hand selected 3-5 builders with a solid reputation yet they are quoting you a price to build that is $50,000-$100,000 over what you had expected to pay.  This can be a real head scratch-er because after all you told your architect/designer what your budget was.  Next you will spend more time sending your plans out to various builders with the hopes that one of them will arrive at your budget.  Or you will have to pay even more money to go back to the drawing board with your architect/designer.

How do you know if your plans are going over budget? Let me rephrase that question.  How do you keep your plans on budget? Diamante Custom Homes has an approach different than the traditional design-bid-build approach.  We take the bidding out and use the design-build approach.  We have refined this process over the course of 20 years and have built a team of architects/designers around us to do one thing.  That one thing is staying on budget- which takes to hassle out of the equation.  This way when we are done designing your plans, there are no surprises.  We have put time and money into a process that works- it is not meant for you to have to go back to the drawing board when we are done!
