Concept to Reality.
Whether you want to build one of our existing Green Homes’
signature floor plans or create an original design from concept
to reality, Green Homes offers the expertise to help you realize
Green Homes specializes in one of kind creations for their clients.
Most clients choose to build one of our plans, as designed,
or modify one of our existing floor plans; other clients want
something different but haven’t been able to find an existing
home or an existing floor plan that fits their needs; that is
where Green Homes comes in. “One of a kind” doesn’t have to
be expensive”, says Brent Green, President of Green Homes. “We
can create an original design in 30 days or less, and often
for about the same cost as a stock floor plan in a plan book
or on the internet. The difference is that when the customer
uses us to guide them through an original design, they get exactly
what they want.”
The first step in the Design-Build process is a design meeting
to determine the budget as well as the home style and floor
plan. Once the budget is set, we work with you and an architect
to make sure the home options and design features suit your
needs and that the design fits your budget. We invest a lot
of time upfront asking the right questions and listening to
what is important to you. Sometimes we offer suggestions and
design ideas to enhance your home's functionality, efficiency
After the home design (floor plan, style selections) has been
finalized, we prepare a total cost estimate for the project.
Once the estimate has been approved and financing is secured,
we are ready to break ground.
Building a new home typically requires construction financing.
Lenders require the house plans, specifications and total estimated
costs to approve your construction loan. If you do not wish
to secure your own construction financing, Green Homes will
finance the project through one of our preferred lenders and
sell the home to you when it is completed.
One of the most rewarding aspects of building a custom home
is that you have a lot of options. Fortunately, many choices---like
floor covering and appliances---do not have to be made right
away. Green Homes will provide a selection sheet with an allowance
for each item so that building costs remain budget friendly.
As an option, we have design consultants available to help you
select colors, materials, surfaces and fabrics that make your
home uniquely yours. We monitor the construction process closely,
and we're always thinking of how the pieces will fit together
to build the best home possible.
