Custom home construction involves many complex variables. Making informed decisions on developing a suitable design, selecting the right materials and keeping on budget can be challenging for most clients. Grays Harbor Home Builders can help you with every stage of the building process, including hiring the right subcontractors and trades. We can manage your custom home project from start to finish.
Grays Harbor Home Builders is experienced in working on custom home projects of various types and sizes. Homes have become more complex over the years and building code requirements more stringent. This has affected the timeframe it takes to obtain building permits in the Grays Harbor County area.
Many of our customers have found that it is helpful to understand the building process before construction begins. Grays Harbor Home Builders gives you realistic expectations and can help you make informed decisions about what is involved in construction in the following areas:
The cost to complete your home to occupancy will be dependent on the size, location and complexity of the project. The time taken, availability and quality of trades-people used will affect the labor component. The reality is that it is more important to consider the value of work being done than simply choosing trades based on a low hourly rate.
Choosing the right people can save on a lot of labor cost and fixing problems later on. Generally the use of higher quality material gives you a better finished result, less waste and lower maintenance as well as substantial cost savings during construction. Grays Harbor Home Builders uses best construction practices in all of their projects.
A new addition may be just what it takes to accommodate a changing family or special lifestyle needs. You can expand a kitchen, add a bathroom or change your existing home into the home of your dreams. Whatever you have in mind, Grays Harbor Home Builders can help.
As with any construction project, an addition to your home requires careful planning. Before you decide to go ahead with the project, it is important to clearly identify the features you want. Just as important is a thorough inspection of the current structure so that any existing problems can be corrected at the same time.
The key challenge is to make sure that your addition meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home. You will likely need help from a professional designer who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
At Grays Harbor Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.
Construction techniques for new homes have changed rapidly. Most of these improved techniques also apply to renovations. This is why it is important to select the right materials and professional builders, just as if you were building a new home.
Grays Harbor Home Builders can help you plan ahead before the actual renovation takes place. The idea is to make it look better, work better, last longer and be more comfortable. Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation project. Consideration should be given to:
A professional renovation makes your home more attractive as well as safer, more efficient and more durable. We can give you a realistic estimate and perform the work to meet building codes. We can also help you access professional designers if required.
Working with Grays Harbor Home Builders gives you the assurance that you are getting someone with experience in the Grays Harbor County area.
Building a new home, renovating your existing one or planning for a home addition requires careful planning and the right expertise to get the best result. Grays Harbor Home Builders has the experience and resources needed for any major home construction project.
Custom home projects require a variety of professional resources that understand the details of the project and work efficiently together. Although these people act independently, they need to be available at the right time and at different stages of the project. Grays Harbor Home Builders has a network of professionals who are used to working as a team.
Using a proven system means a much better finished result and more value in your home. Skilled people and the use of quality materials will pay for themselves during the construction. The building goes faster which saves labor costs and reduces construction waste.
Some of the more crucial areas where expertise is needed include:
Grays Harbor Home Builders has full access to a wide range of technical experts including designers, drafts-people and engineers. In custom home construction, all projects are unique to some degree. The key to a successful outcome is to identify all the variables in the building process and make sure they are included in the budget.
We use the proprietary Custom Builder XPM ™ system, which was developed specifically for estimating the cost of custom home projects. This process enables you to plan ahead and make the right decisions to minimize the risk of budget overruns.
Grays Harbor Home Builders specializes in more complex structures, such as post and beam, timber-frame or log homes. These kinds of homes use different structural techniques to support the roof and floors and require foundations that are engineered to meet load bearing points.
Although these structures are more costly to build than conventional homes, you can incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. They also generally have a much higher appraised value. We can work with your designer or architect to help you choose the right kind of design and materials to fit your requirements.
Building different types of custom homes takes special construction expertise. Grays Harbor Home Builders uses the best construction practices whether we are building a conventional or more sophisticated structure. This is why we recommend the use of higher quality building materials, which give you a much better finished result.
