Sterling’s Pre-Construction Process – Part III

PORTFOLIO-Texas-Traditional-8079-ElevationThe key to a pleasant custom home building experience lies in the processes and organization developed by your Austin custom homebuilder. At Sterling Custom Homes, we have created and continually refine our systems to provide you with the most organized, enjoyable building experience in the industry.

This blog series will delve into our pre-construction process, which contains 10 easy steps that carefully guide you to the actual construction of your unique Sterling Custom Home.

 Step 6: Preliminary Plan Review

In our world a preliminary plan is a ¼” scale version of the clients’ floor plan and elevation. You’ll recall that the prior plan versions were at a smaller 1”=10’ scale. We review the ¼” scale plan with the clients,  providing them with furniture cutouts to work on the space planning. Any changes to the plan are communicated to the architect and a final Preliminary Plan is produced.

Step 7: Finalize Preliminary Plan and Specifications

Once the preliminary plan is finalized, we meet with the clients to go through the Sterling Detailed Specifications. In these meetings we will take the client through the plan, room by room, and define the scope of the project. We will discuss every option available as we determine the materials and finishes that will be applied. Our specially developed interactive software system automates this process and produces a comprehensive document defining every detail of this unique home.
