Many people feel overwhelmed by the endless choices that come with building a custom home. That's why we developed this wish list to help you figure out which spaces are most important in your new home.

This is not a contract or an agreement; it's just the starting point so we can understand the scope of your project. Once you finish filling out the form, we will be able to present you with a preliminary cost and timeline for your project. 

Don’t worry, you are not locked into the choices you make on this wish list. It’s simply a starting point to help you visualize your new home so we can bring it to life. 


Why Fill Out the Dream Home Wish List?

Building a custom home is a unique journey that requires careful planning and clear communication. Our Dream Home Wish List is designed to simplify this process and offer several key benefits:


1. Clarify Your Vision

When it comes to building your dream home, clarity is crucial. The Dream Home Wish List prompts you to think deeply about what you truly want in your home. By detailing your vision, you can better articulate your needs and desires to our team. Whether you envision a cozy library, a spacious kitchen, or a luxurious owner’s suite, this wish list helps you map out every aspect of your dream home.


2. Streamline Decision-Making

Choosing the features of your custom home can be overwhelming. The Dream Home Wish List breaks down the process into manageable sections, allowing you to focus on one area at a time. This approach helps you make thoughtful decisions without feeling rushed or pressured. By addressing each part of your home separately, you ensure that no detail is overlooked.


3. Establish a Scope

Your responses on the wish list provide us with a comprehensive understanding of your project's scope. This information is essential for creating a preliminary cost estimate and timeline. Knowing your preferences upfront allows us to plan more effectively, reducing the likelihood of changes or delays later in the process. It sets a solid foundation for a smooth and efficient project.


4. Enhance Communication

Effective communication is key to any successful project. By filling out the wish list, you provide us with a clear picture of your expectations. This transparency ensures that everyone is on the same page from the start. It also helps prevent misunderstandings and miscommunications, making the entire process more enjoyable for you.


5. Personalize Your Home

A custom home should reflect your unique lifestyle and preferences. The Dream Home Wish List encourages you to think about specific features and spaces that matter most to you. Whether it's a home theater, a wine cellar, or sustainable features like solar panels, this tool helps you personalize your home to suit your needs perfectly.


6. Visualize Your Dream Home

The wish list is not just about ticking boxes; it’s about visualizing your future home. As you fill it out, you start to see your dream home taking shape. This visualization is a powerful motivator, helping you stay focused and excited throughout the building process.
