The Custom Home Building Process

At Saville Homes, we use the following Custom Home Building Process for every project we work on.

Step 1 – Consultation - Every project is unique, so we begin by identifying the needs and wants of each of our clients. Proper preparation and planning are critical to a successful project. Saville Homes will discuss location, budget, design, timelines and any other important details to your project.

Step 2 – Lot Selection – if required, Saville Homes works with you to find the perfect lot in your desired community that fits all the requirements of your custom home. Our knowledgeable team can help identify any concerns or requirements of build lots.

Step 3 – Architectural Drawings -  We help you choose from a list of trusted architectural firms that best represents your style of home. Saville Homes works closely with you throughout the entire design process to ensure vision and budget are met.

Step 4 – Specification Review and Pricing – Careful review of Saville Homes specifications with clients and a detailed budget is prepared before construction.

Step 5 – Construction – working closely with your dedicated project manager we take the project from conception to completion. This is done with scheduled walkthrus at specific stages of the build. Construction time can range from depending on complexity and scope of each project but most projects can be completed within 8-12 months.

  • I met Sheldon, owner of Saville Homes, several years ago, when my wife and I had decided to build our dream home.  We had interviewed quite a few custom home builders that came via referral and some that we had researched online.  Our house designer, Phase One Designs, had recommended that we should meet Sheldon, telling us that he was just finishing a project and that she was really impressed by the quality of the workmanship. I am so happy with the process so far, which I understand can be the most stressful things in a person's life, but Sheldon has made the process easy, as he deals with all the stressful things before it ever becomes an issue.  Above all, I would say that if you are thinking of building a home, Sheldon at Saville Homes is the person to go with.  You will not regret it.  I doubt you will ever find another home builder that cares as much about your house as Sheldon does.

  • I would like to highly recommend Saville Homes. We initially began with a custom quote for a basement bathroom renovation, which we are planning on going ahead with. However, since the first meeting with Sheldon at Saville, my wife and I have felt extremely comfortable with the whole process and really appreciate the recommendations that Sheldon has made to improve upon our ideas. I would completely trust Saville Homes to completely renovate my entire house and have already referred them to friends and family! Thank you Sheldon.
