Custom home construction involves many complex variables. Making informed decisions on developing a suitable design, selecting the right materials and keeping on budget can be challenging for most clients. Skagit County Home Builders can help you with every stage of the building process, including hiring the right subcontractors and trades. We can manage your custom home project from start to finish.
Skagit County Home Builders is experienced in working on custom home projects of various types and sizes. Homes have become more complex over the years and building code requirements more stringent. This has affected the timeframe it takes to obtain building permits in the Skagit County area.
Many of our customers have found that it is helpful to understand the building process before construction begins. Skagit County Home Builders gives you realistic expectations and can help you make informed decisions about what is involved in construction in the following areas:
The cost to complete your home to occupancy will be dependent on the size, location and complexity of the project. The time taken, availability and quality of trades-people used will affect the labor component. The reality is that it is more important to consider the value of work being done than simply choosing trades based on a low hourly rate.
Choosing the right people can save on a lot of labor cost and fixing problems later on. Generally the use of higher quality material gives you a better finished result, less waste and lower maintenance as well as substantial cost savings during construction. Skagit County Home Builders uses best construction practices in all of their projects.
A well-designed addition to your home takes thorough planning. Your addition should not only consider lifestyle needs, but also increase the value of your property by more than the construction cost. Structural changes resulting from your addition may give you a chance to improve other outdated components.
Skagit County Home Builders uses up-to-date, energy-efficient construction practices. Home additions often require changes or upgrades to air handling equipment to improve moisture control and air quality in the house. The objective is to increase the comfort as well as the function and size of the home.
Many additions will require a building permit, particularly when the external footprint of the home is increased. Skagit County Home Builders has access to professional designers who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
Skagit County Home Builders can help you make sure that your addition is structurally sound, meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home.
A professional renovation makes your home more appealing, more efficient and more durable. Skagit County Home Builders has the right kind of experience to make you comfortable that your project will be successful. We provide you with realistic estimates and perform the work to meet building code standards. We can also assist you to source experienced designers and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation. You will need to consider:
Good up-front planning is crucial before you start work to keep costs under control and get the best result. A thorough inspection will help you to assess the condition of your home. Skagit County Home Builders can arrange for a professional home inspection for you that assesses signs of deterioration and the possible causes.
Skagit County Home Builders can then help you plan your project and make your home look better, last longer and be more comfortable.
Building a new home, renovating your existing one or planning for a home addition requires careful planning and the right expertise to get the best result. Skagit County Home Builders has the experience and resources needed for any major home construction project.
Custom home projects require a variety of professional resources that understand the details of the project and work efficiently together. Although these people act independently, they need to be available at the right time and at different stages of the project. Skagit County Home Builders has a network of professionals who are used to working as a team.
Using a proven system means a much better finished result and more value in your home. Skilled people and the use of quality materials will pay for themselves during the construction. The building goes faster which saves labor costs and reduces construction waste.
Some of the more crucial areas where expertise is needed include:
Skagit County Home Builders has full access to a wide range of technical experts including designers, drafts-people and engineers. In custom home construction, all projects are unique to some degree. The key to a successful outcome is to identify all the variables in the building process and make sure they are included in the budget.
We use the proprietary Custom Builder XPM ™ system, which was developed specifically for estimating the cost of custom home projects. This process enables you to plan ahead and make the right decisions to minimize the risk of budget overruns.
The design you choose will determine what kind of construction method needs to be used to build the home. More complex structures can include elements of post and beam or timber-frame construction combined with conventional framing. Homes can also include solid log rafter systems instead of posts and timbers. This means that different structural techniques are needed to support the roof and floors.
All structures have the advantage of being able to incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. Although they are a little more costly to build than conventional homes, they generally have a much higher appraised value.
Skagit County Home Builders can help you determine the right kind of design for your budget. Your choices of design, materials and construction method also play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home.
Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. Skagit County Home Builders is capable of building a wide variety of custom homes and uses premium quality building materials to give you a better-finished result.
