Building a new home is a big investment and at Scheper Custom Homes, clients can choose from our house plans, have plans modified, drawn, or purchase premade architectural plans. Once we have a working plan, specifications are outlined and contracts are drafted. As soon as the contract is signed, building permits are obtained and the building process begins. As this process begins so does our relationship, where we always listen and respect our client’s opinions, ideas and needs.
Scheper Custom Homes follows a well-honed 10 step process to achieve the end product the homeowner wishes and the best construction experience possible.
Clients meet with Rick Scheper to discuss house plans, general specifications, the residential community’s restrictive covenants, compliance with state and local building codes, and construction budgets.
The design/build plans are begun, guided by the homeowner and by Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. Because this software offers flexibility, changes to the plans can easily be made so that a homeowner’s wishes are always accommodated. Sometimes, homeowners ask that Scheper purchase “outside” plans and then revise them according to the homeowner’s wishes. Either way, plans are completed to the permitting stage.
Clients meet with our interior and fixture design professionals who help guide and assist in making your detailed selections of plumbing fixtures, appliances, cabinetry, windows and doors, bathroom hardware, etc.
