Frequently Asked Questions
Where do I start?
Plan a budget. Begin now to think about how much you can afford to spend and how much building your new home is likely to cost.
Where do I find a lot?
You most likely have an idea of whether you’d like to live in a subdivision or amongst open space. Joe Kroll Builder can help you investigate factors such as soil condition, drainage and where your home will sit on the land. If you don’t have a space chosen, we are more than happy to choose one of our inventory spaces or look at available land elsewhere.
How do I build my dream home?
A custom-designed home is created specifically for the family which will live there. You may choose to work with an architect before choosing a builder, or Joe Kroll can refer you to several professionals in the area. The architect will work alongside you and your builder to create your perfect home considering your needs, the land and your budget.
Who do I hire?
You will need a team of experts to design and construct your house. Key players will include a builder and an architect. You may choose to hire an architect before your builder or vise-versa. Either way, Joe Kroll can be the full service you need to organize every step from the design, site selection, excavation to finishing touches like a pool and custom landscape architecture.
Do I need a contract?
Be sure to get a written contract which has been signed and dated by both the builder or contractor and the architect or designer. A contract for new home construction will describe the project in detail and include a listing of all the parts to be included in the house. Remember to amend the contract if you or your team make any changes to the project later on.
