HELLO TO HOME
At this orientation you'll review and approve your site plan. Once that's done, we'll schedule your upcoming Design Gallery Appointments and provide cool tools to help you with your Design Gallery Experience.
SITE PLAN APPROVED
You'll receive a copy of your site plan for approval at the Hello To Home Orientation. Once approved, the site plan is included with the building permit packet submitted to the city.
COLORS & FINISHES
Select the colors and finishes that reflect your personality and style. This 3 hour appointment is all about achieving your taste on budget. Personalize your new home with your exclusive design consultant.
In order to build your home, the respective city requires us to prepare a building permit packet. This packet requires your site plan, extensive drawings and specifications of the home. It also takes a few weeks to prepare with all the necessary information.
FUNCTION & COMFORT SELECTIONS
This appointment covers the function and comfort selections from electrical to lighting options. This 3 hour appointment is all about personalizing your new home with the choices that are important to you.
BUILDING PERMIT SUBMITTED
The permit packet is submitted to the city and usually takes a few weeks to approve. There are extensive fees and costs involved in submitting for permit.
All deposits, appointment paperwork and schematics have been signed and authorized by you (change order addendums (COA’s), schematics and real estate addendums). Finalization is required to pick up building permits and schedule a dig.
Once the city grants approval and you have finalized your design appointments, we are able to pick up your permit and schedule your dig.
Once you’ve finalized your design appointment and the city has the permit ready to pick up, we schedule the dig on the construction calendar. Keep in mind, there are homes in front of you lined up to dig. Rest assured, you get scheduled in the soonest available slot.
BUILDConstruction starts on your new home
Once your dig date is scheduled, an online overview of the construction schedule will be accessible from your Hello-To-Home page.
This is the official date we break ground and start digging your new home.
You’ll meet with the Builder for a Construction Orientation right around the same time as the dig!
Prior to sheet rock, a Structural Orientation Walk will be scheduled with your builder!
Your builder has 6 scheduled quality inspection points throughout the schedule.
If you visit the homesite, please check in at the sales center, and always wear your hard hats!
NEW HOME ORIENTATION
You’ll meet with your Warranty Representative and learn about the function of your new home, (happens at least 5 days prior to close.)
At least 5 business days after the New Home Orientation, you’ll sign closing documents at the title company.
Pick up your keys and move in!
