DCCH Construction Inc.
"Building with Higher Standards"

Our Process

Before you start your journey we thought it would be helpful to share an overview of our own Custom Building Process. DCCH takes each client through the steps of the building process as a good way to begin and gain a general understanding of the road ahead. This way we can answer any concerns you may have or questions that arise throughout the process of planning, designing, and building your custom home.

The challenge for everyone is the same. How do you plan and design in a way that you end up custom building what you really want, within your budget, and in an effective and efficient way?

Each step is designed to move you through the process without jumping around, and in the order that proves to make the most sense. By dealing with the specific objective of each step, and establishing target dates to complete each step, you will reduce the risk of racing ahead while staying focused on first things first; all in a timely fashion.

Our Custom Homebuilding Program is as follows:

New Home Preliminary Plan 

Our building program starts with a thorough discussion and review of your family's need, desires, taste, and budget. Using our 12 page checklist (and other tools,) and years of experience, we can analyze everything from your design ideas and preferences for interior and exterior finishes, to the latest technology, site planning, and financing options. The initial goal is to realistically determine the overall feasibility of your project, and establish your target budget.

Evaluate Lot and Design Options

Once we have clarified what is important to your family and have established a comfortable budget, we proceed to the evaluation of your building lot and consider your design options. If a building site is needed, we begin the search and selection process.

Preliminary Design and Specifications

 The next step in the process is to develop the preliminary elevations, floor plans, and specifications based on the criteria outlined in step one. Once this is accomplished we can update our estimated construction cost and determine if any changes are necessary to maintain your original design and budget objectives.

Draw Blueprints

With preliminary plans successfully completed and in line with the target budget, our design team will produce working drawings. These drawings (blueprints) will enable us to consider and resolve the final architectural and engineering aspects of your home and prepare us for final construction planning.

Construction Planning and Building Contracts

At this point we finalize selections and construction documents as well as site construction planning. With the planning decisions and pricing complete, we can confidently move forward and approve the Building Agreement.

Obtain Mortgage Commitment and Building Permits

With the Construction Contract and blueprints completed we are equipped and prepared to finalize the appropriate financing and secure building permits prior to construction.

Begin Construction

Finally, with planning, design, financing, and permits in place, we begin the exciting process of construction with anticipation of the reality of you finished custom home.
