The reason EH Custom Homes is the elite custom home builder in the Pacific Northwest is we do so much more than just build beautiful homes. Our team of experienced custom home builders are with you every step of the way, from initial vision and design to land acquisition to completion and on-going warranty care.
We want you to call us before you complete plans with an architect or chose a lot on which to build so we can offer our many decades of combined experience to help your dream truly come to life. The value we bring grows exponentially if you bring us in from the beginning!
Our professional services include:
Land & Lot Acquisition
We use our long standing relationships with local real estate professionals to help you find the perfect lot, and then be there to ensure the site really is perfect for your needs. To confirm that your desired project is feasible we’ll do everything from bringing in consultants (such as soil and civil engineers).
As a top home builder in Washington State we have also built strong working relationships with the area’s top architects and designers. We’ll provide introductions, matching the best fit for your proposed style and needs. Once we are retained we will collaborate closely with your architect to create a custom home that fits within all of your desired function, design and cost parameters.
It’s the details that separate premier new home construction from ordinary new home construction. Your Project Coordinator will create a comprehensive, all-inclusive Specifications Book capturing every component of the project—electrical fixtures, plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, finish carpentry, paint colors and more.
Budget & Schedule Development
Your Project Coordinator will obtain subcontractor and vendor bids based on your approved Specifications Book, and then confirm the overall budget for your project. Once the project permit has been issued you’ll receive a Decision Deadline Schedule. This keeps the process from becoming overwhelming, and allows the build schedule to remain on track.
One of the many advantages of working with an established general contractor that has a large full-time staff is that it’s not just “one person trying to do everything.” Once things are underway our Operations Manager will use specialized software named “Buildertrend" to track all aspects of scheduling, giving you the ability to see exactly where your new home construction stands . Your Project Coordinator will track all expenses and provide detailed monthly billings.
Equity is an organized and clean home builder. We handle all aspects of construction, from serving as the point of contact for all subcontractors, consultants, vendors and city inspectors to resolving issues as they arise. Construction will be overseen by your Project Coordinator, who will be on site ensuring all work is done to specifications, using the highest quality building materials and techniques.
Our in-depth project close-out process includes a full quality inspection by our lead Operations Manager. We will conduct a detailed walk-through to compile a final “punch list.” Upon move-in you will receive a Comprehensive Close-Out Package with manuals and warranties, as well as photographic documentation of your project if desired.
Your relationship with Equity Homes does not stop on your move-in day. You’ll enjoy a full-coverage warranty during the first year after your home’s completion.
