The Healthy Home Building Process
Wondering what to expect during the design + build process? The first step is an introductory meeting in which we get to know each other and form a basic idea of your wants and needs. We will discuss what kind of layout, design, square footage and features you're looking for in your home.
We will also address any sensitivities and/or allergies that may impact you or your family's life in order to cater our building products accordingly. A conceptual house plan will be formulated as well as a working budget. We maximize materials and space, so you can maximize your investment.
the best memories are made at home
Designing a home that compliments you
Second is a design agreement. JS2 Partners will take the information from our initial meeting and begins designing your Healthy Home. During this phase one-on-one communication is key. Preliminary drawings will be drafted and the selections process will begin. Your custom home will be designed using the latest and greatest non toxic and hypoallergenic building products available.
We further focus on energy efficiency, indoor air quality technologies and spatially appealing designs to best meet your family's needs and budget. All federal, state, local building codes and ARC requirements are applied during our drafting process, and the final construction set of house plans is reviewed and stamped by our licensed engineer. We will also onboard our civil engineering partners should your property require special drainage or topography considerations.
Bottom line, we take the time to get it right, the first time!
You get to pick out the fun stuff!
The third step in the design process is finalizing homeowner selections, by you, the client. Our selections process is unique from other custom home building services, as we work with our clients to schedule selections appointments with our trusted vendors and suppliers before ever breaking ground.
Working lock-step with homeowners through the selections process allows us to provide valuable material and interior design insight. Plus our homeowners are provided an extra level of financial comfort, since we're able to provide a more accurate estimate of the build costs and subsequent design flexibility, prior to starting construction.
Take Your Home for a Test Drive
Each JS2P homeowner is welcome to experience the glues, paints, lumber, drywall, everything, before building.
Let's break ground!
the best way to change the future is to design it
It's time to start building. First things first.... Quality control is a top priority, and how we manage the build truly sets us apart from other builders. Each of our home build projects are assigned one of our experienced and trained project managers to be onsite. The PM serves as the go-to point of contact for each build.
We are big on oversight and communication... Think of your home as a restaurant for a moment. Although the restaurant chef is important, it takes more than one talented chef to make a great meal. While the chef cooks, someone has to run the restaurant, another has to source the best ingredients, and another makes sure the kitchen is in clean working order. Building a healthy home is no different. Our team works together with subs to ensure that only the products that you approved are used and that the building process goes smoothly.
A schedule will be mapped out and updated from start to finish. We know the building phase is the hardest part for our clients. From day one, we strive to foster trust and an open dialogue during the design phase so that you know your home will be treated just like our own. Frequent client site visits will be scheduled once construction is underway as well as additional product and design selections.
While every build has its challenges, the one-on-one nature of our build process mitigates these challenges which greatly reduces added time to the overall construction of your home. The sooner we can get you living in your new home, the better!
