Custom Homes

General Contracting

A custom built home can provide your family a space that is specifically catered to your needs, while incorporating innovative design features. Some of the latest home building trends include increases in flex space, storage options, indoor/outdoor space utilization and green features.

The Building Process

At the start of our relationship, we will be discussing what you would like your dream home or commercial project to be. For example: Where and how much you would be comfortable spending, how soon you would like to get started, and when would you like to move. We want to get to know you and for you to get to know us.

Design

When meeting with Chris Smith and his team you will discuss the Home Design. This process is easier than you may expect. The goal is to make this process fun, so that you enjoy the designing experience.

We will work with your plans and designer, or schedule an appointment with one of our experienced Home Designers, Architects and Engineers.

These professionals will listen to your needs, desires, and will design a home based on your lifestyle, personal tastes, and budgetary requirements. One of these designers will develop a set of preliminary drawings, and from those drawings (set of plans) Able Remodeling, Inc. will estimate the price of your home.

If the estimated price falls within your range, we will then work on final drawings. If the estimated price is out of your range, we will mutually agree on modifications that will hopefully bring it back into your range. We will work on making your dream a reality. It's that easy.

Site Selection and Orientation

The building site you have chosen is essential when designing your custom home. You will need to take advantage of any views, trees, driveway orientation, slope and drainage that will affect the way your custom sits on the building site. Being able to for see the end result is one of Able Remodeling's strengths.

Financing

At this stage you should have your loan application in process if needed. This enables you to get your pre-approval dollar amount for your custom home and site if needed.

We will be happy to give you names of mortgage companies and banks that we have dealt with to help with your financial needs. With home interest rates at an all-time low now is the time to build your dream home.

Pricing and Groundbreaking

Now that you have your preliminary plan, building site and your financing has been pre-approved, next in line is final pricing. This is a lot easier to accomplish than you might imagine.

Pricing can be determined now that the specifications and allowances for your home have been based upon your preferences and plans. You are given allowances for items in your home such as flooring, stone, fixtures, appliances, landscaping, etc. These allowances able you to select and get pricing on your selections.

Now you and Able Remodeling, Inc. have an understanding of what your custom dream home should look like, location of house on building site, what amenities it will have and how much it will cost to build. Should you decide to move forward, we will draw up and sign a construction contract and begin building your dream home before your very own eyes. This is when the real fun begins!

Building Codes:

In the event that the building department or other governmental agency requires revisions of any work within the scope of your job, or in the event the Able Remodeling uncovers or discovers defects or problems with an existing structure or building site which should be corrected in order to conform to safety requirements, building codes, or accepted construction practices, you will be advise as the Owner of any required changes or modifications in the work.


Inspections and Approvals

The inspection of the improvements is the last step of the development process. It is in this stage where the built out process is reviewed to ensure it meets the specifications of the previously approved plans submitted to obtain the required building permits. Inspections are performed based upon the details of the construction requirements contained within the approved plans. If the building complies, this process leads to a certificate of occupancy.

Inspections include structural, concrete, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, fire, building, health, landscape, drainage, engineering and any special inspections needed to address unusual hazards. A listing of required inspections is available when permits are issued for a project.

Inspections will be performed based upon the approved construction drawings and code requirements. Some inspections are a prerequisite to others, we will be responsible to ensure the proper sequence of inspections occur.
