At Riverview Custom Homes, we provide you with design and construction services required to build or renovate your home. Home owner involvement is the essential component to a successful project. We establish and maintain an open line of communication with our clients throughout the entire process so that all parties contribute to decisions that are made.
Phase 1: Introductions and Planning
An extensive interview is required to gain understanding of each clients’ vision and current stage in the home building preparation process. We discuss the scope of the project and work together to determine which of our talented architects or designers will best suit your style and project. We can provide you with land acquisition assistance and arrange financing from our preferred lenders if required. If you already have conceptualized or working drawings, we will be happy to review them and offer suggestions for improvement. A future meeting is then scheduled for the presentation of a preliminary budget which, if accepted, moves us on to Phase 2.
Phase 2: Preliminary Design
An architect or designer will be presented with your budget to prepare the preliminary design. A site visit is completed to measure and photograph current structures and determine which features we may want to take advantage of when designing. Riverview helps you through this process by assisting with architect or designer choice as well as attending meetings with you and the architect to ensure that your needs and wants are met every step of the way.
Phase 3: Design Development
A design is chosen. Riverview works with you to develop a construction specification list which identifies and lists all of the products and features that will be included in the house. The budget that coincides with the specification list is then created and presented to you. Once approved, we move forward to Phase 4.
Phase 4: Pre-Construction
In this phase, drawings are submitted to the local municipal authority for approval, budgets are further refined, and construction schedules are determined. A starting date is agreed upon. All future construction considerations and details are resolved in this phase. Once a development permit is obtained we can begin construction.
Phase 5: Construction
Riverview follows a progressive schedule in order to guarantee that your house is delivered to you on time. During construction the material selection and details are refined. We liaise with our clients and the designers on an on-going basis to ensure satisfaction with the design direction. We provide our clients with weekly updates and schedule multiple walk-through meetings.
Phase 6: Service
At Riverview Custom Homes, we believe that our integrity lies in the service that we provide to our clients after they have taken possession of their new home. This is why we provide two pre-scheduled appointments during the first year to address any deficiencies that may arise. A two year builders warranty is provided along with a five- year structural warranty through Progressive Home Warranty to ensure that your investment is fully protected
