At John Marion Custom Homes, we understand that building your dream home is a huge investment of money, time, and emotion. That’s why we listen carefully when you tell us about your needs and priorities. We dig deep and learn all we can about your daily routines, your sense of style, your space and energy needs, as well as your plans for the future. Our team’s decades of experience will serve as a guide as we walk you through every stage of building a custom home that is truly unique to you and your family.

The Road Home Our Process

We’ve built our processes around honesty, transparency, simplicity and experience. From the initial meeting to the final walk-through and beyond, JMCH will be there every step of the way to provide a streamlined and rewarding client experience that delivers a final product that exceeds your expectations!

What to expect:


1. Consultation Meeting

This initial meeting is when we will discuss your wish list, timeline, budget goals, building location and architectural plans. It will give you the opportunity to learn about our processes in more detail, ask as many questions as you would like and help us both to determine fit.


2. Property Evaluation

If you are still searching for property, we can help pair you with one of our realtor partners to assist with finding you the perfect build location. If you have already purchased property, a member of our construction team will visit your lot or land to evaluate the conditions and give you feedback on how topography, utilities, and clearing may impact your home’s design and budget.


3. Design

After you have purchased property you should begin designing the floor plans for your home. If you haven't already selected an architect or draftsman, we can help pair you with one. Throughout that process, we will work closely with you and that design team to help be a guide in achieving your vision while staying within the target budget range without compromising quality.


4. Estimating

We will enter into an Estimating Agreement and begin preparing a construction budget based on your final plans, projected finish selections and current material and labor bids. At the end of the estimation phase, we will provide you with a detailed budget that outlines the expected costs for your home's construction.


5. Contract

The scope of work, building specifications and final budget will be approved by signing our Construction Contract. You will then be able to finalize any financial arrangements needed regarding a bank loan and disbursements through a title company of your choice.


6. Construction

With the final contract and funding in place, we are now ready to move into the active construction phase of your project. You will be assigned a Construction Superintendent to be your on-site contact and who will manage your project from excavation to move in day. They will supervise all work being completed at the job site and are there to answer questions throughout the process. Throughout the construction phase you will be sent weekly updates, have various scheduled site visits, walk throughs & selection meetings as needed.


7. Home Delivery

We know this is the most exciting and, at times, anxious part of the process. Please keep in mind, our team needs time to complete the final punch list items and obtain an Occupancy Permit before you can begin living in your new home. We will also complete an in-person Home Orientation walk through which will consist of an instruction and manual binder, and demonstration if needed, for all the new systems in your home. We will walk with you to confirm the installation of selections and condition of cosmetic surfaces before the move in process begins. We will also review key maintenance points to ensure you have years of satisfactory homeownership.


8. Post Construction

As your partner, we remain by your side well beyond the completion of your home. Warranty item management will be addressed as needed per the terms in your contract.

Streamlined & Connected Homeowner Portal

Our company’s reputation is founded on the superior quality of our homes and the complete satisfaction of our clients. We believe that communication is the key to this satisfaction.
