5 Simple Steps to Stress Free Custom Building

If you are thinking about building a custom home, but your only thought is 'where do I even start' then this is the article for you. At FLR Developments our expert team has broken down the end goal, your beautiful dream house, into a full-service 5 step process.

Let's explore how we take the overwhelm out of your new residential home build, while still allowing you full customization.

Your Expert Full- Service Custom Home Builder

We know there are many options for building your home, but we believe that our design-build process is truly second to none.

For many, your home is the largest investment you will ever make and you want to ensure that it is exactly what you have been envisioning. When you partner with our professional team, we guide you through the process to ensure you are:

  • Getting the end result you desire.
  • Staying within your budget.
  • Enjoying your new home when we said you would.

Our 5 Step Design-Build Process

Initial Consultation

This consultation is more than just an initial meet and greet. We use our time together to dig deep into your needs, desires, expectations, family dynamics, future plans and so much more. Only after these important conversations can our expert design team begin to create your custom home.

Detailed Project Quote

This is an important step that we believe many home builders do not provide enough detail on. We take pride in knowing our quotes are highly accurate and detailed, so if you need to make changes you can be very clear on what is, and isn't working within your budget.

Planning and Design

This is the step that allows you to see your vision really come to life. Our professional design team takes your ideas, your budget, and their expertise to create a detailed plan for your custom home.

Final Review

Before we ever break ground we ensure that:

  1. All permits and applications are complete
  2. Your budget and timelines are met
  3. All drawings and plans are accurate


During construction, our in-house platform will allow you to oversee the full construction from start to finish even on the days you are not physically on site. Because of our extensive planning in phases 1-4 your development will run smoothly.

Custom Home Building: Frequently Asked Questions

Although our initial conversations and meetings are incredibly detailed it is important that you have a general idea of some important facets to your project before we begin:

  • What do you want to spend on your home?
  • Do you have land, or want us to assist with land acquisition?
  • When do you need to be in your home?

All other details can be worked through with our team, but these three important questions will help us create your detailed quote.

Choosing your land to build on depends on your lifestyle, the style of home you want to build, whether you want to build a backyard suite, and other design-oriented aspects. Our team loves to help our clients find the perfect piece of property with them. Ask us today about helping with land acquisition.

The timeline of your residential build varies greatly based on:

  1. State of the lot pre-construction
  2. Size of the home
  3. Amount of customizations

Those things considered, we are committed to handing over the keys to your new home quickly. Ask us about some of our time saving, and sustainable, construction techniques that will cut back construction time and save you money.
