Building Process

The following are the steps that go with building a Steve Nyhof Custom Home:

Lot Selection and Home Design Coordination.
The majority of clients have a house design in mind. We will meet with you to get a feel for your lifestyle and location needs. He will help you find the ideal lot for your house, so that you don't end up with a lot that does not accommodate your design plans.

Design Creation and Implementation.
We will work closely with our design team who will help you achieve your vision for your new home. You can log into your account from your home of office to access, view and print your plans, all online. We will always combine the uniqueness of the individual client with the practicality of function.

Custom Design Elements.
Pricing out your home to give you an accurate idea of cost is a job taken quite seriously. We will talk through the home design and then develop the specification documents for you. If you have specific custom design elements you'd like incorporated into your new home, we encourage you to bring pictures of it. A picture can help answer a thousand questions. At the end of the pricing process, if needed we can offer design changes to help accommodate your budget.

After all the initial contract documents are signed, we have resources that will work with you on your financing. When financing is complete, a survey with the house placement is done, and we are ready to start construction.

Construction Phase.
Construction begins with the excavation. At this time you'll be given a schedule for your home selections. It's now time to select your materials. Some clients choose to work with an interior designer and some choose to use our resources; we can assist you either way. At each critical point of construction, we will go through the house with you to help answer any questions.

Final Walk Through.
As completion draws near, we will keep you abreast of the projected completion date. Many clients have existing homes to sell and we can assist you in the marketing and selling of your home. Prior to closing we will do a final walk through together and make notes of any unfinished details, and get them taken care of before closing.

Your new home is covered under warranty and one of our strongest assets is his service period agreement. Every new home goes through a "breaking in" phase and it's our guarantee that all warranted items in your home are corrected in a timely manner, see our warranty page for more details.

Move In!
Our success depends on your satisfaction with the home building process. Once you've dealt with and come to know us as a company of integrity; we would be pleased if you would refer him to any friends, family or co-workers looking to embark on a home building project.
