How long does it take to build a new custom home?

The length of time to build your custom home is determined by the scope of the work and the level of customization. It can range from approximately 9 months to 18 months depending on the variables. Ivan Stanley will put together a detailed, comprehensive and accurate construction schedule based on your specific project needs. Ivan Stanley will complete the project within the schedule parameters without sacrificing quality.

Is it okay to visit my home while it is under construction?

Yes! Ivan Stanley Fine Home Builders encourages homeowners to visit the building site and to be involved in the process. Visiting the job site and being a part of the dynamic building procedure fosters the clients’ excitement and enthusiasm, which is exactly the type of environment Ivan Stanley strives to create. That being said, your safety is our primary priority. It is important to schedule a site visit with Ivan Stanley to ensure that the site is safe for visitors. Clients also have access to our interactive construction management tool which will allow the client to see regularly updated photos of the project’s progress.

How will I be updated as to the progress of my custom home project?

Ivan Stanley Fine Home Builders utilizes a web-based construction management tool that allows you to access project details. You, the client, are able to log into their personalized project site to view the specifics: budget, timeline, and change orders. You have an “Ideabook” where you can upload photos for the builder and designer to see, thus keeping all of these communications in one centralized location and optimizing efficiency and organization. As decisions need to be made, you will receive a reminder email, i.e. You have two weeks to finalize your fireplace model selections. Also, a complete photo chronology of the project is archived on the site, giving the client visual feedback concerning the project’s progress.

How do I select a custom home builder?

Reputation, reputation, reputation. The reputation of your custom home builder is the most important consideration when selecting the contractor to complete your project. Gather referrals and testimonials from past clients. Ask past clients questions such as: Would you use Ivan Stanley Fine Home Builders to build another custom home? Would you refer Jeremy Fischer, Ivan Stanley to friends or family?

Other considerations include experience and longevity in the region. Does the home builder have considerable experience in the area? Does the custom home contractor have knowledge of construction rules and regulations specific to your jurisdiction? Does the home builder understand how to build with respect to weather conditions or other challenges particular to the region?

    I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so the highest compliment I can pay a contractor is to acknowledge that he did the job as if it were his own house.
