Our Custom Home-Building Process

Being a small business allows us to focus on our clients and their experience. We strive to provide a fun, stress free building process. We will work with you step by step from the initial design to the final handover. 


Initial Contact

A conversation over the phone will allow us to better understand your situation and project, and for us to answer any questions you may have about designing or building your new home. 

During this conversation, we will ask a series of questions to understand what you are looking to achieve with your home and how we can help you meet your goals. 




This is an opportunity to meet with Jason, the owner of Burgess Homes, in person for an hour long consultation. We will discuss your design requirements, details, wish list items and your target budget. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have of the home building process. 



Concept Agreement

Our Concept Agreement includes preparation of preliminary architectural drawings (if not already complete), and a detailed list of building specifications will be developed. This is where we will begin to refine your vision to ensure it meets your goals and budget. You will be given access to your own client portal where you can log in 24/7 and view all things related to your project.

At this time we will also determine the viability of your lot. Clients often come to us with percolation testing and civil engineering completed or underway, but if not we can include this as well.



Preliminary Building Agreement

The Preliminary Building Agreement will include finalizing your architectural and structural drawings with an engineers approval and stamp. We will finalize the detailed list of specification, the construction schedule and agreements with all our suppliers and subcontractors to be able to provide you with a fixed price construction contract.



Construction Contract and Deposit

Upon agreement of the fixed price construction proposal, a contract will be prepared. A meeting will scheduled to review and sign all required documents to move to construction. 

We request a deposit of 10% of the contract price at this stage. Then we submit all required documents to the local building department for permit. Any changes made after this point will be billed as a change order.
