Custom Built Home Process Step-By-Step

Step 1: Pre-Approval

We are approved by many construction loan lenders and we work with a couple preferred lenders. Feel free to reach out to them directly or contact us for more information.

Step 2: Lot Assessment

Upon the execution of the property contract, Covenant Homes will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the site, including site work, impact fees, and any well or septic-related expenses (where applicable). We will establish a predefined allowance for these components, which will be seamlessly integrated into the overall cost of your home. Any funds remaining below the allocated allowance upon project completion will be promptly credited back to you.

Step 3: Home Selection

We’re here to customize our floorplans to suit your preferences! The easiest and most budget-friendly way to do this is by choosing one of our existing models and making adjustments as needed. If you decide to change the structural layout significantly, it turns into a custom home project, which involves a different process. Additionally, we offer custom home options not listed on our website so if you have a specific design concept in mind, please share it with us, and we can provide you with more floor plan choices that might match your requirements.
