1. Getting to Know You
Meet with us to discuss your wishes and questions. We will get to know one another and talk about what you want in a home. You can visit our office or we can come to you. We will be more than happy to give you past clients to contact for reference, or show you some of our previous work. Looking at our plans is an option or you may already have a plan in mind. Once we get an idea of what you want, we can make changes to show what your home will look like, inside and out.
Next, if you have decided that LKN Custom Homes, Inc. is the right choice for you, we will then begin the designing process. You will decide on a plan, and start the process of creating a home perfect for you. Feel free to bring photos or websites with ideas that you are looking to follow. We will discuss allowances for such things as brick, paint, landscaping, flooring, appliances, etc. Later in the process, you will choose your hardware, paint colors, cabinetry, etc. We will setup a timeline and give you an estimate on completion time. We will also give you pointers on how the construction loan works, and steps to take to move towards a closing date.
During the construction phase, we will stay in close contact with you to make sure every square foot of your home is to your expectations. You will be updated on the progress of your home weekly, if not more often. You will select your brick/stone type and color, windows, paint color, plumbing fixtures, flooring, cabinetry, granite, electrical fixtures, appliances and landscaping. You will be provided with many choices in every price range. We will be glad to assist you with your choices, if you need help.
When your home is finished, and you move in, we are still dedicated to your satisfaction with our product. We provide a one year warranty on our work. Even after the warranty has ended, we are still here to make sure you are proud of your home. As a customer, you are our most valuable asset.
