Here’s what you can expect

Our Process

In today’s marketplace builders are fighting the reality of rising costs from suppliers and the labor market. To adjust for the rising costs, the simple solution has been to raise their margins so they can absorb the higher costs during the build. Heuer Homes takes a different approach when pricing your dream home. Showing our homeowners the true cost to build allows the homeowner to make informed decisions on their budget so they build their home without sacrificing quality and excellence.


Nice to meet you

Our team will meet with you to understand your preferences, budget, and timeline for your new home. Based on our initial meeting, we’ll develop a rough budget, scope of work, and lay out the upcoming design process.


Home Design

Our draftsperson will work alongside you to design a custom floor plan that reflects your unique needs, tastes, and lifestyles. We will make any necessary revisions or adjustments prior to floor plan sign off. Once you approve the floor plan, we move on to the next step.


Estimates & Priority

Once we have signed off prints, we can start obtaining estimates from foundation to finish. While estimates are rolling in, we’ll also begin talking through some key selections which will also drive the finalized budget numbers.


Finalize Budget

Based on the estimates and selections obtained for the designed house, we are prepared to finalize the budget and construction contract. With a signed contract in hand, we’re ready to button up a couple more pre-construction items.


Permits & Remaining

At this point we are able to start the permitting process which can take up to four weeks. Each municipality has its own requirements to get specific permits, so we will handle all of those details in the background. Your priority will be to work with our Design Manager to work through the remaining selections of your home.



Now the excitement begins! Your plans and visions will start to take shape right before your eyes. We will also get you entered into a project management software called Buildertrend in which you will have access to check the progress of your custom home. Heuer Homes will periodically do walkthroughs with you to ensure that we are all on the same page.


Welcome Home

This is the day you’ve been waiting for! All of the hard work poured into your dream home has paid off. Heuer Homes is thrilled to hand over the keys and have you begin to make memories in a home built to last.
