How does Washington's Virginia weather factor into the process of building a custom home?
Most exterior construction in Rappahannock County happens during Spring, Summer, and Fall, due to better weather conditions. Winter construction is also possible, but snow, ice, and heavy rain can delay the work significantly. We prioritize the safety of our employees and contractors, as well as the safety of your home!
I already have a site to build on in Washington, VA. Can you use that lot?
We can certainly build on your lot — it conveniently cuts out the time needed to find a lot in Washington to build on. We will want to design the home so that it takes best advantage of the particular features and views offered by your lot. We will visit your lot with you to walk it and discuss our ideas for your home’s construction.
Will I get a custom home builder’s warranty?
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 Washington doesn’t mean you’re always in Washington! 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 Washington to build my custom home?
