Is it your dream to build a custom home in Orange County? Have you always thought it would be amazing to live in a home that was designed and constructed just for you and your family—one that perfectly suits your lifestyle and matches your personal style?
If this is a dream of yours, but you’ve been hesitant to undertake this type of project because you’ve heard horror stories from other people who have done it, this blog post is for you!
We’re not going to sugarcoat it—building a custom home in Orange County is a long process. From initial design to completion, you can plan on the process taking a year or more. First, there is the design phase, which can take several months to complete, and then there is the time it takes to get approvals on the design from the city or county. Then you enter the building phase. Depending on the size and complexity of the home, this phase can also take a good amount of time.
However, just because the custom home building process is long, doesn’t mean it has to be unpleasant or frustrating. People who have gone through the process may tell you otherwise, but they didn’t work with the team at Scott McKee Construction!
We’ve been building custom homes in Orange County for more than three decades. In that time, we’ve learned a thing or two about streamlining the custom home building process. It starts with creating realistic expectations about what the project will cost and how long it will take. We believe that a lot of the frustration that homeowners experience when they take on a custom home build is due to unmet expectations. Their general contractor will give them an estimate that then gets blown out of the water. Their home ends up costing more than double what they were quoted and taking three times as long due to “circumstances beyond the general contractor’s control.”
At Scott McKee Construction, we know that on every custom home build, things come up that we didn’t anticipate. The difference is, we make allowances in our budget and timeline to account for them. As such, we are one of the few custom home builders in Orange County that consistently finishes projects on time and on budget.
Another way we reduce frustration during the custom home building process is by only using high-quality subcontractors. So many general contractors try to increase their profits by hiring cheap subcontractors. This rarely goes well. Subpar subcontractors tend to take longer and do work that is not up to the homeowners’ expectations. When you work with Scott McKee Construction, on the other hand, you can be assured that we will only hire subcontractors who are experienced, reputable, and have a track record for delivering great work in their respective trade. We will carefully supervise their work and make sure it is up to our strict standards for quality.
Finally, our team is extremely adept at project management. We know how to keep projects moving forward. We are organized and thorough. We will also communicate with you throughout the process.
