Blueprints, budget and zoning. Oh my.
We work closely with the area’s most trusted and sought-after architectural firms. But if you’re already working with an architect, we look forward to fostering a great relationship with them as we have done with many others.
During the all-important blueprint phase, John and your chosen architects and designers will translate your vision; incorporating views, topography, and other environmental considerations into the concept.
Adding windows to maximize natural light and enhancing the flow from indoor to outdoor living is a key element in all Joy-designed homes. And with every design element, we anticipate your evolving life needs- sometimes before you even realize them.
Your project’s scope of work, investment amount, and construction documents are finalized during this stage. Typically, our custom homes cost an average of $3 million but can run as high as $8 million.
Half of our clients pay cash, a fourth pay cash for the lot and finance construction, and the other fourth finance the entire purchase with a down payment of 20 to 25 percent.
Through a collaborative effort, the complete project parameters are flushed out and finalized; ready for municipality review and permitting.
