The Building Process
Building a new home is a partnership between the homeowner and the builder.
Both the Builder and the Homeowner have expectations and responsibilities that must be met to successfully complete the home. The following steps have been outlined to represent the typical process of building a home with Roersma and Wurn.
The Building Process
Contact Roersma and Wurn to determine your location and price range for your home. We will help you find a plan that meets your specific needs and refer you to a loan officer, if desired.
2. Lot Deposits
A $2,000 deposit will hold your desired lot for 90 days. This will give you time to select options, and for us to draw plans, and calculate final pricing. After 90 days if no contract is signed the deposit is forfeited and the lot is returned to available status.
3. Preliminary Planning
Once a deposit has been received and a plan has been selected, we will order a preliminary plan for you to review. You may choose a Standard Plan or work with our designer to plan a custom home.
Homes may be built in one of our developments or off-site.
4. Final Plan Release
Once you are happy with the final design, we will then prepare your final package and schedule your “construction sign-up” (see step six below)
Step 5: Review Process
Plans, specs, and your contract are completed and sent to you for review prior to the “construction sign-up”.
Step 6: Construction Sign-Up and Final Deposit
We will go over your plans, specs, and contract with you page by page at the sign-up. This meeting helps answer your questions and prepares you for the building experience. Your final deposit is due at this meeting.
Step 7: Selections
All selections should be made within 45 days of sign up to keep you on schedule. If this is not done the completion date will be affected. The selection process is best done in several sessions with our interior designer in the selection center at our office. Our designer will guide you through the details that will make your house your home.
Step 8: Construction Process Begins
Lot is staked out to be reviewed by your Construction Manager and excavation is scheduled. Your construction Manager will communicate with you as your home is being built.
Step 9: Final Walk Through
You will meet with our warranty company ProHome seven days before closing on the house to complete a new home orientation. At this time you will be provided with our warranty book.
