Talbot Custom Homes © 2023
Do the Right Thing – Always
The first step in the process is our initial communication with our clients. Whether it be through the website, email, or social media, we want to make sure that Talbot Custom Homes is the right fit for each of our clients’ needs.
Second, Adam and his team will come out and do an in person consultation to discuss your ideas and understand your needs. This is the time to bring your photos, floorplans, Pinterest boards and any other wish list ideas you want to incorporate into your project. We’ll be offering our own ideas as well as addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Let’s take this opportunity to get to know each other and determine if we're right for you!
Third - we sign a professional service agreement between you and Talbot Custom Homes. We request a deposit and a signed agreement at this time to show you want to work with us for this project. This allows us to create a slot with our schedule and set realistic time frames and overall project schedule with you. With so many competing projects we want to make sure we are transparent about our capabilities and time frames, but also want everyone to have a dedication to getting things done expediently.
Once you’ve decided to move forward with us, we want to make sure you’re in the loop every step of the way. We’ll provide you with login credentials to our online portal where you can login to keep track of the schedule, view progress photos, and submit new requests. You’ll also be able to stay on top of expenses and when your payments are due. Have any questions or concerns during the project? Easily contact us through the portal and we’ll get back to you right away.
For those projects that require architectural design and engineering, at this point your initial print is complete. Once it is done, we will communicate however you would like to discuss the print. At this point we want to make sure to go over all the checklists! This way we have 100% of everything you want in the prints prior to going into engineering.
Once the design has been agreed to, we send it over to engineering. Again, depending on your project scope, your plans here were sent to engineering. Once this is complete we move into permitting/selections and the final contracted price.
We will have a pre-construction meeting prior to the permit being released. This will allow us to redline your plans to make sure no stone was left unturned as we build your home!
In simple terms, a pre-drywall walk is a process where you, as a homeowner, walk through your new home with the builder to make sure all the important components of your home such as plumbing, electrical wiring, insulation, framing, and HVAC ductwork are installed correctly and up to code. This is important because once the drywall is installed, these components will be hidden from view, and it can be expensive and time-consuming to fix any issues that may arise later on. By conducting a pre-drywall walk, you can ensure that your new home is being built to your expectations and meets the highest standards of quality and safety.
The final walk-through is a critical stage of new custom home construction where the homeowner inspects the property with the builder to ensure that all agreed-upon features and fixtures have been installed. During this process, the homeowner show you how to use all the systems and features in your home and identify issues as they come up that are homeowner maintenance items. We test all the systems and features of the home, identify any defects or issues that need to be addressed, and create a punch list of items that require fixing before the final closing. We also provide the homeowner with all the relevant documentation, instructions, and user manuals to operate and maintain the home's features and systems. Ultimately, the final walk-through provides the homeowner with peace of mind that their new custom home meets their expectations and is ready for occupancy.
Once the final walk-through and punch are complete, we have a handover celebration. Here we walk the home for a second time, making sure all punch items are complete. All inspections are 100% completed at this time and certificate of occupancy is also completed. Time to celebrate!
