Building your dream home with care for every detail and dedication to you.

Step #1 - Find & Securing Your Ideal Homesite

Building your dream home starts with finding the perfect piece of land, but the process may feel daunting. Rest assured, our team is here to guide you every step of the way, making the journey as rewarding and stress-free as possible.

Imagine stepping onto your future homesite and knowing it’s the perfect canvas for your dream home. Our land development services are essential to ensuring the success of your vision. We understand that not all land is suitable for building especially if you are looking for a certain style of home, and selecting the right property is crucial to avoiding costly setbacks down the road.

When you partner with us, we’ll conduct a thorough evaluation of potential homesites, considering factors such as zoning requirements, utility availability, and drainage considerations. From navigating zoning regulations to assessing soil conditions, we’ll help you make informed decisions that align with your goals and budget.

Our expertise extends to estimating building costs and sitework expenses, providing you with a clear understanding of the financial implications of each homesite. Whether it’s determining excavation costs or evaluating drainage solutions, we’ll work closely with you to ensure your dream home stays within budget while meeting your expectations.

We’re committed to helping you find and secure the perfect homesite for your custom home. A few of the areas we will look at are…


Before breaking ground on your dream home, it’s crucial to understand the zoning regulations in your desired location. Our team specializes in navigating these requirements, ensuring a smooth path to realizing your vision.

Zoning regulations can dictate various aspects of your home, including size limitations and floor-area ratios. By partnering with us, you’ll gain insights into these critical considerations, empowering you to make informed decisions that align with your goals.

Additionally, setback requirements play a vital role in determining the distance your home must maintain from property lines. Our expertise in zoning regulations allows us to navigate these requirements seamlessly, ensuring compliance while maximizing the potential of your homesite.


Exploring utility availability is a crucial step in the custom home building process, with long-term implications for your home’s functionality and cost-effectiveness. Our team is dedicated to helping you navigate these considerations, ensuring you make informed decisions that align with your needs and budget.

Whether your water source will be city-supplied or from a well, we’ll assess the availability, quantity, and quality of water resources to ensure reliable access for your home. In cases where a well is necessary, we’ll conduct thorough evaluations of surrounding wells to inform our decisions and optimize water accessibility.

Determining the most suitable wastewater disposal method is another essential aspect of utility planning. We’ll analyze the costs and logistics of connecting your home to city sewer systems or installing a septic system, providing insights to help you make the best choice for your property.

In addition to water and wastewater considerations, we’ll evaluate the infrastructure for electrical, cable, and telephone services. Our expertise allows us to assess whether these utilities can be installed underground or overhead, along with associated costs and implications.

By partnering with us, you’ll gain confidence in your utility decisions, knowing that your custom home will be equipped with reliable and cost-effective utility solutions tailored to your specific needs.

We can help determine the costs involved if your home will be connected to city sewer or will require a septic system.  Septic systems work great but typically cost much more than tying into city sewer.  

When it comes to wired utilities, we will evaluate electrical, cable and telephone lines coming into your home.  We can help determine if they can be underground or if they have to be overhead and the costs involved to connect to them.


Effective drainage is paramount to the longevity and functionality of your custom home, safeguarding against potential issues such as flooding and water damage. Our team is dedicated to addressing these concerns proactively, ensuring your property is equipped with reliable drainage solutions tailored to its unique characteristics.

One of the key aspects we focus on is the topography of your land, ensuring that it slopes away from the building site to facilitate proper rainwater runoff. By carefully assessing land contours, we mitigate the risk of water pooling around your home, preventing potential damage and ensuring a dry and stable foundation.

Additionally, we conduct thorough evaluations of soil conditions, including water table levels and percolation rates, to understand how effectively the soil can absorb water. This information informs our decisions regarding drainage solutions, allowing us to implement strategies that optimize water management on your property.

In cases where additional drainage measures are required, we explore options such as gravity footing drains or sump pumps as a last resort to effectively channel water away from your home. Our preference is always for gravity-fed drainage systems, which offer reliability and efficiency in managing water flow.


Selecting the right plot of land is a critical step in ensuring the success and affordability of your dream home. We understand the importance of accurately estimating sitework costs as best as possible to avoid unexpected expenses and help ensure your project remains within budget.

When evaluating a particular lot, we meticulously assess various factors that can impact sitework expenses. This includes determining the cost of excavating and backfilling the house, identifying any potential challenges such as ledge formations that could affect building costs, and evaluating the presence of a high water table.

In situations where ledge concerns arise, we explore innovative solutions to minimize costs and streamline the construction process. For example, we may recommend adjusting the foundation elevation to avoid costly blasting and rock removal, while also implementing strategic fill placements to enhance the landscape around the foundation.

Our commitment to cost-effective solutions is exemplified by our recent success in helping clients save thousands of dollars on lot purchases. By accurately assessing the need for additional fill to mitigate blasting costs, we negotiated these expenses to be subtracted from the purchase price of the lot, demonstrating our dedication to maximizing value for our clients.

While estimating building costs related to land is not an exact science, our experienced team leverages their expertise to provide reliable estimates as best as possible. Although uncertainties may arise during the sitework construction process, we strive to keep our clients informed and ensure transparency every step of the way, empowering them to make informed decisions and achieve their dream home vision.
