Buying a new home is one of the most meaningful times in a person’s life. Building a custom home makes this experience even more personal. When creating a custom home, homeowners are empowered to make their space special and catered to their needs. This process is exciting, but it can be overwhelming as well. However, with professional and experienced builders by your side, the process can be as smooth and stress-free as possible.
Build By Owner
At Build By Owner, we understand the complexities of the home building process and know how to navigate the process with a professional and refined process. Our attention to detail, customer service standards, and professional relationships have earned us the stellar reputation that we have now. We are considered the foremost custom home builders in Houston, Texas, and have worked diligently to earn that reputation. Our standards have never wavered, and we ensure to uphold our meticulous level of care no matter how busy or popular we become in the building community.
The Build By Owner Difference
As the world changes and more and more people rely on their homes for comfort and respite, it is the perfect time to construct a custom Houston home. It is important to love where you live so that you can find peace and relaxation at the end of your busy days. Whether you work from home or leave to earn your money, it is important that you love and appreciate your time at home. At Build By Owner, we employ several unique standards to ensure the best building experience. These standards include:
- Support and Communication. A common complaint in the building industry is the lack of reliable and clear communication between builders and clients. Many builders are simply going through the motions and don’t allot the appropriate time and attention to each project. At Build By Owner, we know that this process is brand new to most of our clients, so we prioritize communication that reflects and respects that. We practice the art of listening to, not just hearing, our customers. You never have to worry that a concern or comment will be ignored, and you can expect the same courtesy when we communicate with the vendors and subcontractors that help us do our job. We have a stellar business-to-business reputation because we put effort into our communication.
- Personalized Care. We are not a large corporation or chain; we are a small, locally-run home builder in Houston, TX. This means that you won’t be dealing with large-scale policies or runarounds, and your project will have priority to us. Your building process will be personalized to you and your family’s unique needs.
- Transparent Policies. Because we are a small business, you can be sure that you will not be interacting with just an employee but the owner directly. You will have access to the highest level of care and expertise that we can offer, so you will never have to doubt the process.
- Affordability. Many builders charge based on a myriad of different factors, all of which can change. At Build By Owner, we charge you our price, which remains constant and reflects hundreds of hours of research on how to make the building process affordable and accessible. We source many of our supplies from wholesale establishments and hand-select subcontractors that fit into our price model.
These qualities may seem obvious, but they make all the difference for our customers. Many custom builders do not extend basic respect or quality promises to customers, which can make the building process more stressful than it needs to be.
The Build By Owner Process
Part of the stress and overwhelm of the building process comes from not knowing what is going to happen. At Build By Owner, part of our clear communication is ensuring that you know what is going to happen so you can plan ahead. We know that moving is a big process, and we never want you to be guessing about when you will be able to begin. This is our standard process for building a custom home.
During this part of the process, our team will meet with you to discuss your goals for your home and your preferred style. This is where we apply our expertise to help guide you to make knowledgeable decisions about your new home. We know that you have big dreams for your home, so we use the discovery phase to brainstorm how to execute that dream in a practical, doable way.
This is often an exciting step because it is where you begin to see your home dreams come to life. During this phase, we design a home that fits your aesthetic and needs and also fits on your particular home’s plot of land.
Interior Design Phase
During this step, you will be able to pick out the details of the inside and outside of your home. These choices are what make a home personal and special and include flooring, countertops, fixtures, cabinets, and more. Many people thoroughly enjoy this stage, and we love to see our clients have fun and get creative!
Now it’s time for your home to come to life! Though you may not be as hands-on with the project at this point, we will always keep you informed of what is going on and ensure that we stick to the budget. You won’t be physically building your home, but you will know everything that is going on as if you were part of the construction crew. We also make sure to honor your timeline in this phase. No one enjoys a construction project that is behind schedule, so we do everything we can to avoid missed deadlines or delays.
Once the build is complete, you will have your final walk-throughs and move into your new, custom home! We love our business because of this phase. There is really nothing like seeing a family thrive in a home that was built just for them.
During this entire process, we never forget who we are committed to – you. We work for you and will treat you with the care, communication, and respect you deserve as a valued client, no matter what phase the project is in.
