Lake Development l.l.c.

process

a brief overview of our typical design, planning, and building process

Initial meetings (1-2 hours):

This often takes place on your building site if you have one, here we can discuss your plans, your wants, and your needs. Also at this time you will receive more information about Lake Development l.l.c., our services, our fees and how we do business.

Architectural Planning: (3-5 months)

Lake Development l.l.c.  we will work with you to design the perfect home for you, your property and your budget.  (the average home with revisions takes 60-70 hours)

-preliminary and conceptual planning

-site planning

-final design plans and construction documents

-all of our plans are approved by a licensed engineer before being submitted for permits

Pre-Construction Agreement:

Before we begin the design and planning phase or before we are able to put your project in our building schedule, we will have a pre-construction agreement put into place which covers everything that happens until the actual home construction begins.


Along with the pre-construction agreement we also will require a small retainer at that time which secures your place in our schedule and goes towards your construction costs when building.

Estimates: (estimates typically take 4-6 weeks to complete)

Once we have an approved design and a set of bidding plans, the process of estimating your home truly begins. Being upfront and honest with us early about your desired budget will help save time and frustrations, especially in the design and planning stages. It is our goal to get you what you want at your budget, but if that is not possible we will be honest with you early on so that adjustments can be made.

Estimates from Lake Development l.l.c. will be fair and honest. We will clearly itemize everything applicable to your project including details of what each allowance includes.

No Hidden Fees

Following in our promise of honesty, we do not hide fees within your estimate like many builders do. We are happy to show you our invoices at any time upon your request. And we will make sure you are clear and understand what you are paying for before you sign an agreement.

Construction Agreement: (Specifically tailored contract to fit your jobs requirements)

The construction agreement between you and Lake Development LLC will be detailed and descriptive. We have learned that agreements like these between parties help to eliminate many questions down the road as well as protecting everyone involved.

Securing financing:

If not already done, this is the time that you and your lender would contract the construction loan. We recommend getting pre-approval for a specified amount early on so that you can know what your desired budget will be. This can be done even before architectural planning begins.

Construction begins:

Now it is time to watch your building site transform into a canvas, and your new home become a work of art.

Construction portals and personalized apps

Starting 2020 Lake Development LLC will  provide our clients a personalized web portal and app to access all things about there new home being built. here you will get picturs, updates, see your budget, make selections and communicate with your builder and there team!

Construction scheduling:

(the typical custom home takes 6-8 months from time of foundation or 8-10 months from ground breaking)

At this time your official construction calendar will be made and a start date set. Due to so many variables that are often beyond ones control, the construction schedule often is evolving and adjusting to reflect the current situations.

Some things that can affect the schedule are: Weather, jobsite conditions, availability of special order materials, and the availability of quality sub contractors. (Many of these delays can be eliminated early with good planning)

QUALITY OVER QUICKLY:

We understand that you will be eager to get your new home completed so that you can move. We also want your new home completed promptly and efficiently, but we also would rather a home take a little longer and be done to our standards then rushed through and filled with loose ends and sloppy work. Therefore, we will not be afraid to make the necessary changes to our workforce or the schedule if needed to achieve our standard of quality.

During construction:

Throughout the construction process you will be working closely with your builder Richard Lake in regards to construction details, scheduling, construction payments, materials, and change orders. Your home may also be assigned a forman which you will also be in contact with.

You will also be working closely with your interior designer in refining your material selections, colors selections, interior design elements.

THE JOB SITE:

We want all of our jobsites to be safe, comfortable, and respectful environments to you, us, and our workers. If you have any special requests regarding your property please do not hesitate to ask us.

.

SUB-CONTRACTOR STANDARDS:

We hold our subs to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism than most. Some of the terms they agree to are: only using legal American Citizens, no drugs or alcohol on the job site, no signs of intoxication while on the job,, no smoking within the building, and to maintain and respectful work environment.

JOB SITE VISITS:

We respect that this is your property and your new home being built with your money and that you will want to check the progress of your new home. We simply ask that you respect our construction hours of 8-4 Monday-Friday and to plan your visits for the evenings and weekends. But if you wish to visit the job site anytime during the day please let your builder know so he or a representative can be there with you to answer any questions or concerns your may have.
