So… How Long Will it Take to Build my Custom Home?

We get it, you want an exact timeline. Although we employ every means available to ensure a swift building process (without sacrificing quality) custom home building still takes time.

The duration of the construction process can vary significantly based on factors like the size of your home and the complexity of its finishes. Our approach involves having the design fully completed before breaking ground, meaning you’ll have a great idea early on when you can expect to move in.

  • Homes ranging from 3,000 to 4,000 square feet have a typical building timeline of ten months. 
  • For larger 5,000-square-foot homes, it’s wise to plan for an average time period of around a year
  • For those sprawling homes exceeding 6,000 square feet, which oftentimes include more intricate details and installations in the construction project, expect eighteen months or more, depending on the specific size and complexity. 

(Please note that these timelines do not include garage square footage.)

We are at the forefront of combining expertise and efficiency, ensuring that your home is built as quickly as possible, but, even more importantly, that it’s built to last.
