How long does it take to build?

Build times can vary depending on several factors, including weather, terrain, and other influential components. A typical timeframe for new home construction can take anywhere from 9 months up to over a year. 

Can I visit the home during construction?

We'll schedule various meetings with you throughout the process, so you'll see your home at multiple stages of construction. You're welcome to visit your home throughout the building process, as long as all safety precautions are taken at all times. Stay clear of any large, heavy machinery that may be working on your lot and be careful not to walk in areas that appear unfinished or unstable. 

What are site costs and how much should I expect?

Site costs are additional costs that depend entirely on the specific lot and construction of the home. Various environmental factors can determine how much may be needed. Some examples include piering, foundation modifications, tree removal, additional grading material, and more. See our Site Costs Guide for more information. 

How does the closing process work?

On the day of closing, you'll schedule to meet with your lender or our title company. Be sure to have a cashiers check or initiate an electronic wire prior to this meeting. Allow for at least an hour to sign all necessary paperwork and at least two hours for the funds to transfer. Plan to schedule a time in the morning, preferably Monday through Thursday, to close. You may not be guaranteed to move on closing day, so be sure to plan movers accordingly. 

Will you build on a lot I already own?

We're available in most areas of the Kansas City metro area, however please Contact Us to confirm whether or not we can build in your specified area.
