The Better the Plan, The Smoother the Execution

Sterling Custom Homes prepares a detailed set of specifications that allows us to accurately forecast the cost of your home before you’ve spent significant money on architectural plans.

Our specifications are more detailed than most. We prepare a 46-page document that defines every aspect of your home, from the stone and lumber down to the door hinges. We walk room by room through the home and define the scope of the project, identify the materials that the client’s going to use in the project, and the allowances they will have to work with.

The Sterling Experience

In this 10-minute video we explain the Sterling Custom Homes Experience and show how carefully crafted elements come together into one amazing home building experience.

We thought the design and costing process was very accurate and your input here was very valuable as it significantly reduced change orders that one might expect. This allowed us to plan our expenditures and we knew early in the building process what we could expect. Your process in this regard was exceptional.
