Getting Started With Pinehurst
Step 1 – Needs & Wants
The first step in our process is meeting and getting as much information as possible. We like to call them the needs and wants list. At this point we ask for any pictures, plans, or sketches you may have and try to get a feel for the way you live. For most people there are non-negotiable items like a big screen TV or large dining room. We note every detail and then move on to Step 2.
Step 2 – Planning & Pricing
The second step is proposing a rough sketch plan and price, and detailed construction specification. Now is the time to discuss areas of cost savings and improvements. It is not unusual to rework the design a couple of times to get where the budget needs to be. Then it’s on to Step 3.
Step 3 – Contracts & Financing
The third step is to sign a contract with Pinehurst and get financing in place. Once financing is in place and all conditions are met, we provide a set of construction drawings of your home and a plot plant. Then it’s time to get rolling.
Step 4 – Finishes & Colors
Now is when we recommend providers for cabinets, flooring, plumbing fixtures, lighting, decking, specialty wiring, and more. During this time we are in contact regularly to ensure appropriate decisions are being made to keep the home on schedule and budget, and that all components will work together.
Step 5 – Pre-Closing & Closing
The fifth step is the pre closing and closing. We do a pre-closing inspection to address any minor deficiencies and provide documents like location certificates, a new home warranty, new construction rebate forms, and other relevant documents.
