Frequently Asked Questions for Custom Home Builders in Front Royal, VA

How much does it typically cost to build a new custom home in Front Royal, VA?
The average cost for building a single-family custom home in the Front Royal area is around $175 per square foot. But prices can range from the low $200Ks to more than $700K and higher, depending on many factors. Expect to pay between about $100 and $400 per square foot for a custom or luxury home. See our blog post on “How Much Does a Custom Home Cost?
How does Front Royal's weather factor into the process of building a custom home?
Front Royal gets an average of 24 inches of snow between December and March. While there can be a variety of weather patterns, snow, ice, and heavy rain often delay construction. Consequently, we prefer to concentrate exterior construction from the latter half of March through November. We can and do work during the winter, but we take extra precautions to prioritize the safety of our employees and contractors.
How do I find a lot in Front Royal to build my new custom home on?

Petrine Construction has invested in a number of great lots in and around Front Royal that are available for your choice. We also have relationships with the top Realtors and Brokers in our area who can also help you find the ideal lot. You’re welcome to view our available lots.

How long will it take to build my custom home from design to completion?
Completion of a custom home depends upon a number of factors. We begin with a consultation to talk about your needs and lifestyle, and from there enter the design phase. Once we present a design, you review it and make changes. This can go back and forth several times before a final agreement is reached. From there, we go into the construction phase. Completion of construction can be dependent on the size and intricacy of the home design, and upon weather conditions, depending upon the time of year. Over our 35+ years as custom home builders, we see projects take between 10 and 16 months, from design to completion.
How can I keep track of progress if I am unable to visit the construction site?
Just because you’re getting a custom home in Front Royal doesn’t mean you’re always in Front Royal! Fortunately, for your convenience, we employ an online scheduling program called Buildertrend. This construction management software schedules and tracks all the tasks of your job along the way, and allows our clients to log in to see what is being done each day. It also offers a robust communication portal we use to message with you on a regular basis. You can also visit your job site at any time for a walk-through with us. We have a project manager on site at each project.
Do I have to get permits or other paperwork from the town of Front Royal to build my custom home?
You will need a number of permits from the town of Front Royal – building, electrical, plumbing, etc. You will also need a building permit from Warren County. As your custom home builders, it is our job to acquire these permits as part of our scope of work.
