Our Custom Home Design-Build Process: 

From start to finish, we work with you every step of the way.



We can help you choose the right property or begin on the property you already own. We can also begin with a blank slate or use one of our customizable floor plans if you prefer.




Our financing experts will help you choose the best option for your custom Cincinnati home, keeping your budget needs at the center of the process.




Your impeccably detailed and tailored design is created through a focus on communication and collaboration using your vision and our expertise in custom home design. 



Our penchant for fine craft, a professional approach, and a keen eye for detail ensures that your project is completed flawlessly. 




Our job doesn't end on move-in day; we will check in to make sure you enjoy your new custom home and are 100% satisfied. 



#1 Plan

Whether you're searching for land online, working with a real estate agent to find your perfect lot, or if you already own land in Ohio, we can help evaluate its conditions. The property you own or choose is key to a successful custom home process.  

We can assess what it will take to develop the land before you put in an offer to ensure your custom home budget won't be overtaken by preparing your lot. 

We can also help to jumpstart your custom home design process with a customizable floorplan. Or, we can start from scratch with your specific needs and wants in mind.

#2 Finance

We'll work with you to give you an estimate before you approach a lender to apply for a loan. Once you have a loan secured, we'll create a design that fits within your budget. Our design-build process is proven to keep your budget intact so you'll know that the loan you receive won't be exceeded. 

Your design will meet all of your needs and remain within your budget. No surprise fees or charges. Our process is designed to create a stress-free custom home building experience.

#3 Design

During the design phase, we'll work together to create a plan with an ideal layout for you and your family. We'll thoughtfully guide you through the finish and feature selection process to help you avoid decision fatigue while achieving a style you love.

Whether you favor following the latest trends, adhering to timeless design, or a mix of both, we're focused on meeting your ideal tastes and style.  

We'll revise your plan to get it just right to meet your vision for your Cincinnati area home before we move on to the construction phase.
