Thinking about building a new custom home?
Deciding exactly who that builder is may be the most difficult decision that you’ll be making in the entire process. Advertising, word of mouth, promotional materials, testimonials and site and model reviews are all important influences in making that decision. But, in the end, it will be about whom you trust the most to fulfill your personal vision. Behind every product or service is an implied promise. Who will you entrust your family dream to?
What is a Promise?
A promise is a pledge, an assurance given by one person to another that they will act exactly as agreed to. The range of a promise is great and so are the implications. A promise made should not allow circumstances to break or negate that agreement.
For the team at Stonehaven, that promise is the only thing we sell. It is in fact, our product. That promise becomes the delivery vehicle and mechanism for any home that we build… whatever the size or design price point.
Before poured concrete or stacked block walls, the foundation of a project is as important and lasting as your family home, is the promise made between Rick Kartes, the founder of Stonehaven Custom Homes and you. And, that is the best peace of mind one might hope for in aligning your dreams with the practical realities of building a custom home.
Between, all the words and tone of a contract drawn between individuals is an intent; a mutually understood goal. Therefore, the first step in the “framing” of your home is “Our Promise.”
YOUR LOT OR OURS
Understanding Your Dream
A house is a building, but a home is a state of mind, a place that reflects your personality, a place to build a life and to nurture dreams. Working with you, the homebuyer, our team will assist you throughout the entire building process. Building a house is a major financial and emotional milestone in your life. Stonehaven Homes makes the process easy on you, giving you peace of mind every step of the way. It all begins with a friendly greeting and progress steps, shown below.
Step 1 – Initial meeting
At this first meeting, we determine your needs and your price range. Then we review some of our plans that may be a fit for you. We have a large selection of designs to choose from that you may customize to suit your tastes, or you can bring a plan design to us and we will build it for you.
Step 2 – Selecting a home site
It begins with a dream, and then you pick your ideal location. Our lot or yours, we will build your dream.
Step 3 – Making your selections
Feel at ease with a home builder with years of experience to go over the final blueprints and help with every step of the decision-making process. To assist you, we will supply you with a Homeowner’s Manual to guide you along the way.
Step 4 – Building your home
Once your selections are complete, construction begins. We will provide you with estimated completion dates so you can begin to plan your move.
Step 5 – Close on your new home and move in
We will make the necessary arrangements with your attorney and your lender as closing time nears. At this time we will do the “final walkthrough” with you to confirm that all the components of the house are in place as agreed, to explain how various items in your house work, and to review the warranty and service policy procedures.
Step 6 – Hand over the keys and call the movers
Once we hand over the keys, we don’t forget about you. Our service program offers the peace of mind you expect from a new home.
Step 7 – Every step of the way
Every step of the way, Stonehaven Custom Homes is available to answer your questions, to address your concerns, and to assure your complete satisfaction.
