10. What is the building process?
We have a process in which we know the appropriate time to schedule selections and installations. We have a design consultant, in addition to having relationships with designers and decorators in our area as well as the region. Our in house designer can help the client with selections, or the client can use their own decorator. If the client would like to hire a decorator, but needs help in finding the right match, we are happy to help make those connections. In our experience, we have found that if the client has someone to assist them, it makes the process run smoother and is much more enjoyable. Often decisions are made on a more timely basis and in the end will help pay for itself.
Some clients already have land on which to build, some are still looking for land of which we can offer assistance. We are extremely familiar with property in the area and have relationships with realtors and others in the business. When a piece is found there are certain soils tests and percolation tests that need to be performed to ensure the land can hold a structure. We also aid in plan development, working with the client and architect on order to have a set of construction drawings completed which are needed for pricing and permitting applications required by the municipality. Beyond that, we have a process in which we take the client through to help make selections, adhere to the building schedule, and the billing schedule.
We have developed a selection process which ensures timely construction. For instance, did you know that plumbing is one of the first features you need to choose? That, along with other choices that require materials to be placed inside the walls must be chosen first. For that reason we will walk you through the process, so that appointments are made with the proper vendors, that selections fit the integrity of the house and stay within your budget. Steve, your project manager, or a qualified representative of Capstone, will accompany you on appointments.
