The Design-Build Approach
From the beginning, we enjoy spending time learning about how you live in your home. We discuss what you like and don’t like, and what you need. We start with a visit to get acquainted where we can enlighten you about our process.
Whether you have already purchased a parcel or in search of the perfect home site consultations are available by Bill Reid to share knowledge, ideas, experiences and past projects. We’ll come up with solutions — some you probably haven’t thought of and discuss the infamous cost question and how to tailor solutions to your expectations and needs.
During the schematic design phase, we vet all ideas. Once you’ve made decisions, we move into design development, where we select materials, design lighting, work with consultants such as structural and soils engineers, and document all your choices. Your plans takes on an architectural level of detail with specifications, site inspections and a formulated budget.
With final design in hand, we create all construction drawings, prepare designs to submit to the county, and secure all building permits.
The way we do business takes your project from the early stages of schematic design all the way to construction, with one crew and company you grow to trust.
Let’s Build your Project
Designing with construction in mind begins with planning a project from the early stages. These steps begin with orchestrating the multiple design and construction talents, scheduling the process and construction timeline, specifying and sourcing the materials and staying in touch through to the end.
The Design-Build model means one group has eyes on the project from when we first saw your site to the final day of construction with keys in hand.
Acting as your general contractor, we work with a select group of subcontractors, in-house construction staff and project managers whom take your plans and specifications and make them a reality.
One Custom Home Solution
Ready to extend your reaches to the mountains? It’s about listening and creating a new home for you. For us it’s about experiencing, enjoying and sharing. With a deep background in creating custom homes for families for the past thirty years our flagship home design has been completed by our team. Our principles stem from Quality over Quantity, contemporary design yet tapping into the essence of the Sierra-Nevada, homes not too large, energy efficient, and flexible for the families to congregate. Carefully selected lots, sited and designed to maximize views while respecting the surrounding is the first criteria. A more contemporary “Mountain Modern” or “Rustic Modern” theme is our approach which leads us to level of simplicity yet investing in quality materials which is what we know you can appreciate every day and we can take pride in.
