With a tight real estate market all over the Pacific Northwest, building your own home is an increasingly popular solution for both locals and those moving to the area. C& E offers multiple options for clients, from custom homes to spec houses with quality finishes that look and feel custom. As owners, we are involved in every step of the process, making sure each element is the best quality we can provide within our clients’ budgets.
Turning Raw Acreage into Homes: Our Process
The first step is developing an accurate budget. Once that’s established, we’ll explore options for plans that fit within that budget, and when a client has identified one they like, we can connect them with local preferred lenders.
In some cases, clients may know what they want but haven’t found it yet. If so, we’ll take the specific features they’re looking for and connect with local realtors in the area to find exactly what they need.
The next step is deciding on a plan. Some may have a clear idea of where they want everything to go, including the septic system, driveway, utilities and the home itself. Others may feel lost and not know where to start. Given our extensive background in all aspects of building, we can easily visualize the most effective layout and clearly explain it to buyers.
These vary depending on the needs and wants of clients. Some have already chosen the plan they want; others may need to see different options to make a decision. In the latter case, we work with several local companies who draw up plans so buyers can explore different ideas. We can also customize existing plans as needed.
We are in constant communication throughout the building process. During the build, you can expect to see C&E’s owners on site, meeting with subs and making sure things go smoothly.
Along with excavation and utilities, we also offer extensive landscaping services. These include everything from basic finishes for outdoor living spaces such as vinyl and laminate all the way to granite, quartz, tile and stone features.
