Key Items to Consider When Building a New Home in Georgia

  • Budget: You have to be clear about your budget. The average budget for a home in the North Georgia area is between $250-350K.
  • House Size: How much space do you need? Between 1,500 and 2,500 square feet of heated living space is typical, but you have to consider the size of your family, your lifestyle and any specific needs. 
  • Home Design and Layout: You can find a design plan you like and submit it and make any minor changes needed. We also have an in-house designer who can design your home from scratch. If there’s an HOA you may need to get approval for the plans.
  • Build Lot and Land: Does the land meet your needs? The topography of the land is the first thing you have to consider before planning your home. Test the soil. The soil quality determines the kind of septic system you’ll need. A soil test is required for you to get a building permit. If the terrain is sloped, this will increase the foundation and labor costs. Some lots can support basements while others cannot. If electric or a water meter isn’t readily available utilities can cost extra.
  • Permits: The permit process differs by county. You typically need a home plan, site plan and soils survey for the septic permit. It also depends on when the area or subdivision was built. If it was built after 1999, an ECS (Erosion Control Survey) is needed. This takes time to get approved and is an extra expense. After you get a septic permit and ECS survey approved, you can then get a building permit.

What Sets Covenant Apart as a Georgia Custom Home Builder

You have quite a few choices when searching for a Georgia home builder. There are several points, however, that make Covenant unique.

  • Personal Touch. We strive to build your dream home exactly the way you envision it. 
  • Flexibility. We can either build on your lot or connect you with real estate partners who can help you find the perfect lot.
  • Transparent Pricing. Some builders quote you a low price per square foot. They do this because they’re including unheated spaces such as a garage. Covenant is always upfront and honest with pricing.
  • Christian Values. We are a family run business with close ties to local churches and other nonprofit organizations. We bring our core values into everything we do.
