The Building Process

Planning your dreams

Click to enlarge view.Our first meeting with the home owner is a great opportunity to become acquainted and visit about your needs, wants and expectations. With over 15 years of residential construction experience, James Lenz can answer all of your building questions. James can work with you to find the answers that best fit your situation. Questions like: "What size of house do I need for my growing (or shrinking) family?", "What exterior style and material works best in Nebraska, and which ones will fit our budget?", "How long does the building process take, and how involved will we be?" and all of the other questions that come up whether it's your first time building a new home or your fifth.

Some people come to us with their blueprint picked out and ready for some tweaking to make it just right for them. Some people know about what they want, and we can help them choose from among over 3000 blueprints using our online home plan search engine. And some people come to us with just ideas, and we set them down on paper for them. If you have a specific blueprint or just have an idea - we can help you design your home to fit your dreams. We will also discuss the availability of lots for the home site If you are in need of a lot - we'll find out what is available.

Assembling your team

After the blueprints have been finalized, we review your needs and the blueprints are sent out to our experienced subcontractors for bidding. After all of the bids are received, we review them and present you with a finalized bid and building schedule.

More choices to make

We make sure that you are informed and satisfied with scheduled walk throughs during the building process and we welcome your visits to your new home at any time.

At this time we will work with you to meet with suppliers to choose appliances, flooring, paint coloring, siding, brick, kitchen counter top material, lighting and all of the other items that make the house truly your own. As the building continues - you may want to make changes. All change orders are agreed upon and verified in writing, so that there are no surprises.
