Step 1 • Team Assembly

The start of the process is just as important as the final phase; the right team can make all the difference. Whether utilizing Gabriel residential designers or collaborating with other design professionals, we work with you to establish the best team to make your project successful from the beginning.

Step 2 • Design Development

A great home starts with a great set of plans that are detailed, complete, and accurate. We can assist you in customizing or detailing a pre-selected plan, or in preparing complete drawings and specifications based on your needs through our design+build process.

By establishing a project schedule up front, we are able to tailor the process to a client’s needs and timeline. Typically, we start groundbreaking within 3-6 months! This all starts with an upfront lot analysis evaluating the site, the views, the topography, along with positioning of possible building site locations on neighboring properties.

Step 3 • Pricing

Throughout the design and pricing phases, we work with you to establish an understanding of your dream, and how we can help make the design work within your budget.

Step 4 • Contract, Schedule and Communication

Your Project Manager will guide you through the blueprint of the process- from contracts, payment structure, construction schedule, and selections process. At the same time, you will meet with your interior designer to start selecting finishes and features for your home. Our communication expectations and process are set forward.

Step 6 • Quality System Implementation

Our award-winning quality program touches every single aspect of our homebuilding process. We are dedicated to exceeding expectations for quality and customer service. Our team members are committed to understanding their roles in our organization and what that means for contributing to our effort for ongoing improvement.

Step 7 • Warranty & Beyond

Congratulations, the keys to your new home are in your hands! At Gabriel Builders, we value lifelong relationships; it is the end result of “doing what you say you’re going to do”. Our commitment extends well beyond the build phase, and we hope to cultivate a lifelong relationship in the process. Part of that is making sure that you’re satisfied with our product long after the construction is finished. We will always be happy to assist you in any way we can – not just during the warranty period.
