Concept and Land
The first step in building a home comes with the decision
or realization that you cannot find exactly what you want,
where you want it, in an existing structure. The Elan Group
can help you evaluate the size and features of a new home
as well as the financial aspects of the building process.
If everything is understood and the decision is made to
build, the next step is to find the right location.
Searching for the perfect lot can be difficult and time-consuming.
We will work directly with you and/or a real estate professional.
We are able to examine the land for ease of building, topography,
and possible limitations.
Once you have settled on the place to build, it is time
to move on to the Design Phase. If you have already purchased
or identified your building site, this is where our services
The Design Phase
We want you to be a part of the design process. Your lifestyle,
your preferences, your needs... Pictures, sketches, written
and verbal ideas will all help in getting started. Number
of bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas, work areas - all of
this information is provided by you. Conceptual drawings
are completed first, along with preliminary specifications.
Once the concept is worked out with regard to size, number
of rooms, and style, the working drawings are completed
along with final specifications.
From the beginning of the design phase, budget is a major
consideration in creating the plans and specifications.
Construction costs are estimated in very broad terms in
the beginning; the margins are narrowed after the conceptual
plans are completed, and a contract price is given after
the plans and specifications are finalized. At each stage,
alterations can be made to achieve the desired budget costs.
Every project is priced according to the materials, labor,
fees, and supervision which will be required to complete
that particular project by the plans and specifications.
There are no standard items, everything is custom.
