Our Custom Build Process
Select a Lot
Whether it’s in Mooresville or out of town, we are happy to look about anywhere your family would like to relocate. If you choose to build on your own lot, please provide us a survey to begin the process. If you do not own your lot, give us a call and we can research the area in which you want to live and find the right lot for you. It's that simple!
Either select a plan option from our library or bring us the CAD drawing for your own custom plan. You neither have a plan or see a house that suits you in our library, then we are happy to consult with you on drafting a custom plan specifically for you. We have access to numerous plans and a team that includes a CAD drawer and an architect that can design your plan from scratch.
Foundation Homes Residential has several banking relationships that are available to assist you with your financial needs. Consult with your Foundation Homes representative to discuss which banking options are appropriate for you and your needs. We strive to make this a one stop and streamlined process; turn-key and hassle free. We will review several financial packages that will be tailored to meet your family's financial needs. The great thing about this process is that we can create a "one-time" close upfront before construction begins. You, along with your personal builder/partner, control where the money is spent. It's that easy!
Site Visit and Evaluation
Part of the construction planning is to have a true understanding of the lot on which you select to build your dream home. We will need to discuss and personally view the topography as well as securing an engineer's report on the septic field, any well considerations and/or compaction tests for a safe building pad. Our builder/partner will handle these environmental circumstances professionally with you and your family. It may be as easy as tapping into the city water and sewer, but we have to evaluate the situation with you and your family.
In our design room, all options and color selections will be made to complete the contract. All signatures are finalized at this point and any changes beyond this point will be handled in a change order format.
*We have great vendor relationships that we can recommend/refer to you and your family if you desire specialized flooring, lighting, cabinets, etc… Typically these vendors have their own showrooms available for you to visualize your selections. This is a fun and great experience through the process of buying your home.
Meet with your personal builder/partner to discuss communication about the selected blueprint of what you have selected to build, along with an itemized specification and selections sheet signed off on by all parties. This is a vital part of the process and we want you to be 100% satisfied with the direction we are taking. Four personal meetings will occur during the building of your new home along with weekly telephone calls for updates. This is the personal attention you desire and will receive throughout the building process of your custom home.
