Your Guide to Building a Custom Home with PRDC

Get an idea of what you want

The most important place to start is with knowing what you want, or at least having a general idea. Consider your wants, your needs, and your future plans for your new home. How many rooms will you need? What building materials, home size, and style do you prefer? Begin to sketch out your own ideas and take a look at some of our previous builds for inspiration. When you're building a custom home from the ground up, the options really are endless!

Get in touch with PRDC

Before you take your next steps, you'll want to give us a call. It’s important that you find a piece of land that will work for the home you want, and to do that, you’ll need to work with a professional.

Our team can determine if a lot is suitable for building, and we can also find out if any city or county rules or topographic features will prohibit you from building the home of your dreams in that spot. We can even determine how to work with the land to take advantage of its best features—like prime views and lighting—or how to avoid trees and shadows.

Don't want to search for your own lot? We may already have one available in your ideal location!

Start designing

Next, you'll work directly with one of our architects to design your home and craft the blueprints. This is when you’ll share your preference for size, style, and basic design, as well as any sketches you’ve created or photos of rooms you like or dislike. Be sure to discuss your budget as well, as this will help you determine which features you’ll be able to afford.

When working with your architect, you’ll want to consider the function and flow of your floorplan, the placement and style of lighting and windows for natural lighting, and many more details of your home. Make sure you spend some time really thinking about your wants, needs, and requirements. Blueprints are easier to change than hard construction!

Building your home

Now it's time for the fun part: turning your dreams into a reality! The length of the building process can vary depending on the size and intricacy of your home, so you should expect the project to take at least a few months. Our builders will be hard at work ensuring that every detail is up to our rigorous standards—and if you ever have any questions, you can always reach out to us!
