We build extraordinary, distinct custom homes. Let us help you build yours.
1. Land/Lot Acquisition Phase
2. Pre-Construction Phase
Once the lot is found, we bring in the experts necessary to carefully vet the property and confirm that the lot is ready for your desired project. This step includes bringing in the proper subcontractors and consultants, such as soils engineers and pool consultants. During this stage we also review city restrictions and municipal codes to ensure compliance of the design.
As one of the top custom home builders on Seattle’s Eastside, we have built great and effective professional relationships with the areas top architects and interior designers. We provide introductions for you, matching your style and design needs of your project to the right professionals. We enjoy this part of the project as we get to work hand-in-hand with your architect and designer and you.
The details make the home. We work together with your architect and interior designer to create your “specs” (specifications) which are then used to create your budget along with the construction drawings.
Using our current bids from our subcontractors for a home in your similar style, we create a budget to start the process. Each element of your home will get a line item, from hard costs such as lumber and foundation, to soft costs such as architect fees.
Once your plans have been submitted to the city planning department, we begin to establish the build schedule.
3. Construction Phase
One of the advantages of working with HBG is our full-time staff of seasoned construction managers who have been in the industry for 20+ years.
Once your project is underway, our Construction Manager will track all aspects of scheduling, giving you the ability to see exactly where things stand. And our Office Administrator will track all of your expenses and provide detailed monthly billings, as well as stay on top of insurance and lien release challenges.
HBG manages every facet of the construction process, acting as the central liaison for subcontractors, consultants, vendors, and city inspectors. Our commitment includes addressing challenges promptly. Your Project Manager, present on-site daily, guarantees adherence to specifications for superior results.
Our comprehensive project close-out procedure involves a thorough examination conducted by our team along with an independent third-party walkthrough with you. Adam will then join you, your Project Manager and your warranty representative, creating a final “punch list.” Upon your move-in, you will receive a Comprehensive Close-Out Package containing duplicates of all contracts, releases, city documents, manuals, warranties, and photographic documentation of your project.
Your relationship with Highlands Builders Group extends beyond your move-in day. During the initial year post-completion, you’ll benefit from a comprehensive warranty.
