The Building Process

A Custom Plan For Your Custom Built Home

Making Your Dream House a Reality

Whether you have floor plans already drawn up, or want us to start from scratch, C&E Wurzer can make your home building experience a positive one. Take a look at our building process and get an idea of what you can expect when you work with us to build your custom home.

Initial Meeting

At C&E Wurzer Builders, we like to meet with clients at our model home to discuss our home building experience. At this meeting, you will be able to ask any questions you have about building a new home or renovation. This meeting will help you identify different options for product selections and building applications which will help to determine square foot price.

Design Schedule

We take the information that we have discussed from our initial meeting and give recommendations as to what the size of your home should be. The next step is to determine the style of home you’re looking for. The best way to communicate the style is with photographs. Maybe you have seen a Parade Home or Model that has stuck out in your mind. Maybe you have a Pinterest board that you’ve curated to reflect the home of your dreams. Wherever you’ve saved images of your ideal house, bring those with you. We find that real life examples and photos are the best starting points. We would give the same advice for any room or feature in your future home. There is no such thing as too much information! Our Architectural Designer will incorporate the information that is shared into the initial concepts.

We review initial concepts for approximately two weeks after our first design meeting. This meeting is exciting because it’s the first time that you get to see your ideas and thoughts come to life. On average we see between four to five revisions to the initial concepts before the plans are ready for the bid stage. We continue to work off a square foot price for budgeting purposes. We strive to have all details included in the prints for the subcontractor bidding.

Bid & Budget

At C&E Wurzer Builders, we have built our reputation by our detailed specifications and budget. With our extensive knowledge of construction costs, we will have a good idea early on if changes need to be made to the floor plans before any significant expenses take place. C&E Wurzer Builders puts a lot of time and emphasis on the front end of the process to ensure your budget and design land in the price range of your choosing.

Proposal Presentation

At this point in the process you will know what to expect for a price on the total package of your new home. This meeting is to discuss in detail and writing what is included. When we meet your expectations and agree upon the terms of the proposal, we move forward into the construction stage of the building process.
