Design Your Custom Home

Luxury Custom Home Construction Steps to Building a Home

Whether you're searching for land online, working with a real estate agent to find your perfect lot, or if you already own land in Cincinnati, we can help evaluate its conditions. The property you own or choose is key to a successful custom home process. We can assess what it will take to develop the land before you put in an offer to ensure your custom home budget won't be overtaken by preparing your lot. We can also help to jumpstart your custom home design process with a customizable floor plan. Or, we can start from scratch with your specific needs and wants in mind.

Make Selections for Your Dream

During the design and selection phase, we work together to create a plan with an ideal layout for you and your family. We thoughtfully guide you through the finish and feature selection process to help you avoid decision fatigue while achieving a style you love. Whether you want to follow the latest trends, adhere to timeless classics or a mix of both, we focus on meeting your ideal tastes and style. We revise your plan to get it just right to meet your vision for your Cincinnati area home before we move on to the construction phase.
