I want to build a new home. What are the next steps?

Before embarking on your next big project, you have a few things to consider:

  • Your budget
  • Choosing a lot
  • Picking a house layout
  • Finding a contractor

Once you know your budget and where you want to build, contact us to help you hammer out the other details. As a custom home builder, we can also help you select a lot and design your home. Most of our homes are designed in house or we can help you find a good architect.

How long does it take to build a new home?

Building a new home can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. It varies on the size of the job, who's involved, and any planning and permit obtainment that needs to get done.

Generally, for a custom home, you should err on the side of caution. Expect it to take two years-one for planning, one for construction-so you don't rush it.

Do you help with site selection?

Yes! Palmer Ridge Construction is happy to help with site selection to ensure our clients get the right plot of land to suit their needs. With our years in the industry, we offer helpful advice and guidance so you can feel confident in your purchase.

Should I buy land before or after I speak with my home builder?

We always recommend buying land after you speak with a home builder to ensure it's ready for development. But if you've already purchased land, don't worry: we can still certainly help you develop it.

What do I need to know about my blueprints?

Your blueprints are what will get you a detailed, accurate estimate for the construction of your new home. At Palmer Ridge Construction, we provide thorough blueprint consultations, so you know how to read them and understand the design of your home.
