There are numerous advantages in choosing to work with a design-build firm including:
At LUXE Homes we view ourselves as a team. When you engage us for your project we partner with you to make your goals and dreams a reality. Because we are a Design/Build firm we have complete control over the design, construction process and project schedule. This provides accountability which results in less errors and omissions throughout the project. You have a single point of contact where everyone is invested in your satisfaction and the successful completion of your project. This eliminates unnecessary time gaps and cost overruns. We are involved daily throughout the process and available to answer your questions quickly, assuring you that the project is proceeding according to your expectations.
After you contact LUXE Homes we will set up a meeting at your home or project site to discuss the scope of your project. We will answer any questions you might have about LUXE Homes or the project you are considering and discuss the specific items you wish to incorporate. It is best if you have a list of items you wish to include in the project in their order of importance. Knowing your priorities and budget will help us value engineer your project to best suit your needs and wishes and allow us to evaluate and share options given your space.
Following this initial meeting, we will create a preliminary design for your project along with a pricing estimate based on those items initially included. We will then schedule a follow-up meeting to discuss the preliminary design and budget. At this meeting, we will determine whether LUXE Homes is a good fit for you and your project and will proceed to the Design-Build agreement. (See the “Process” page for more details)
The LUXE Home owners have a lifelong commitment to quality and have chosen this work because of their love for beautiful, high quality homes. This means the work is personal to them, not just a job. One of their mottoes is “Cheap costs more” because in the long run it does. As such, each phase of the project is done using quality design, materials and processes which produce excellent results while saving time and money. This attention to detail and production process prevents costly mistakes and budget overruns assuring quality and value for each project.
Because LUXE Homes is a Design/Build firm, your required involvement is minimal and can vary based on your desire to participate. Approving the Construction Plans and selection of material finishes are necessary and can be done relatively quickly with our assistance. We will provide regular updates through our client portal for your specific project and can quickly address your questions or concerns.
This varies widely based on the scope of your project. We will be able to give you a general estimate during the Concept Design meeting and a more accurate time range once the Construction Plans have been finalized.
Working with a design-build firm helps you be in complete control of the costs from beginning to end. We will design your project based on the budget you determine, and will provide you with a fixed price for your project that includes allowances for all of your finish selections. Once construction starts if you decide to alter the scope of work or select finishes outside the budget, we will discuss the changes with you and adjust the final budget accordingly.
