Copy of Preparation


We know how daunting the process of finding land can be. Issues like geological and seismic concerns, flood plains, easements, and zoning make buying raw land quite different from buying a house on a developed lot. We have a program to put you in touch with skilled land agents who can guide you through the process, from start to finish. We will then help you select an Axiom Series model you can modify, or we will collaborate with you to realize the custom home you envision.


Land Search

We work with the most reputable agents across the U.S. and Canada, and as members of the Multiple Listing Service, they will show you a whole host of properties available from many different agents. With that accumulated knowledge, and an experienced land agent to shepherd you through the details, you will be well-equipped to find the property best suited to you.

We are happy to put you in touch with a land agent in your area. Send us a note here


Feasibility Study

We work with you to discuss the feasibility of building on your chosen piece of land and what type and size of structure is best suited to it.


House Selection/Program Development

We work with you to develop a program for the home you are imagining, and assist in selecting an appropriate design. Because it can be a challenge to envision a future home, we begin with visualized starting points—11 distinct standard designs we can customize for your site, budget, and the way you live. Our Axiom Series of standard homes can be built as is, or modified to suit your needs. We can also work with you to create your own custom home.

Budget Worksheet & Eventline

Based on your finalized schematic design and chosen specifications, we provide a summary of what your anticipated costs will be to design, permit, manufacture, and construct your home, as well as an eventline to help you understand the sequence of events and associated amount of time typically required for each step.
