The Peregrine Building Process
For the majority of people building a home is the greatest financial investment they will ever make. It’s also an overwhelming process that leaves some buyers confused and left wondering where they should begin and what’s the next step. The Peregrine Construction’ team would like to put your mind at ease and help facilitate this process for you with a step-by-step guide from home building design, move-in day, and everything in-between.
Step 1- Bank pre-approval
Unless you plan on paying cash for your new home, it’s a good idea to get pre-approved by a bank to know how much you can afford. We’re approved home builders for several banks if you need any suggestions or you can choose a bank of your own.
Step 2- Understanding the basics
This may seem obvious, but before we start there is basic information we’ll need from you. What’s your budget? How many square feet are you looking for? How many bedrooms do you want? Is there a certain architectural style you’re looking for or any unique elements you’d like to incorporate? All of these questions will give us the answers we need to ensure we can meet your expectations and help us narrow down the types of lots you should be looking for.
Step 3- Choosing a lot
Before we can design your luxury home you’ll need to choose a lot to ensure the custom home we design will fit within the parameters of your lot. We’d love to help you find a lot, but if you already have a realtor or want to look on your own that is great too. Once you find the lot of your dreams we’ll get a copy of the survey and meet with you to design a home that works with the lot and your budget.
Step 4- Designing your home
Now on to the fun part. This is your chance to put all your thoughts and creative ideas to paper and design the home of your dreams. Peregrine Homes works with several of the areas top architects, allowing us to connect you with the architect that best fits the architectural style you’re looking for. For those of you that already have a set of building plans we’d love an opportunity to bid that too.
Step 5- Contract and closing
Once you approve of the design and specifications of your home, we’ll finalize the lot and construction contracts and proceed to closing.
Step 6- Engineering and permitting
This step doesn’t involve you, but Peregrine Homes will get your truss and structural engineering approved and sent to the building department for issuance of your building permit.
Step 7- Construction begins
Now that we have your building permit approved we’ll immediately begin laying out your home and digging your foundation footings. We’ll also introduce you to our design coordinator to help you select all the finishes that will go into your home. It may seem easy, but it’s very difficult to select all the paint colors, cabinets, countertops, flooring, wet tiles, plumbing fixtures, fans, light fixtures, and appliances so they come together and meet all your design goals. We’ll also introduce you to your superintendent and all other members of the Peregrine Homes construction team. Together we’ll constantly stay in contact with you so you know what’s going on with your home and facilitate the construction progress.
Step 8- House is complete!
Prior to closing and moving in we’ll schedule a walk-thru and prepare a punch list. At this time we’ll address any construction defects and get them resolved as soon as possible. At closing we’ll give you the keys and garage door openers to your house, along with all the warranty information, subcontractor contacts, lien releases, and all other pertinent information that is associated with your home.
Step 9- Enjoy your Peregrine Home
We value all of our clients and strive to give you the best home construction process possible. We thoroughly hope we can exceed your expectations and we want you to sit back, relax, and finally enjoy the dream home that Peregrine Construction designed- with your help of course!
