Contruction Stages

Custom Homes

This is it. After all the dreaming, planning, and plotting, you’re ready. For most people, building a brand new custom home is the most ambitious project they’ll ever take on.



“Embark on an Extrodinary Building Experience.”


Step One – Initial Consultation

There are many variables to consider when building a new home and we want to make sure that you start your journey on the right foot. That’s why at Modern Construction we schedule a no-obligation consultation with our clients to ensure that they have the knowledge and confidence to make educated decisions throughout the home building process. During the initial consultation, we will cover topics such as location, construction budgeting, financing options, home features, and more.

Step Two – The Home Tour

Who doesn’t love to go look at new homes? At Modern Construction we invite you to join us on what will be one of the most information packed experiences in your home shopping process, the Modern Construction Tour. The tour allows you to see what would take a couple weeks on your own, in just 2 hours. Because time is something nobody ever has too much of these days.

Step Three – Plan Design

Whether you have design ideas in mind or are looking for inspiration from a home building expert, our team is here to ensure your new home is the best that it can be. Unlike many other builders, we work directly with our design team will be able to help you with effective space planning and incorporating design elements while staying in budget during our three in-person design consultations at the Modern Construction Display Home.

Step Four – Pre-Construction Agreement

When you are happy with the progression of your home concept design, our team is ready to help you develop a set of architectural plans that can be shared with other industry professionals so that we can gather and compile an accurate construction estimate.

Step Five – Price out

Once a design has been confirmed and an architectural set of plans has been developed, we will send out your plans to the appropriate trade and industry professionals to gather accurate estimated. For each trade and line item, we will gather bids from at least three reputable and experienced professionals to ensure you are getting the best quality and best price. Once the bids have all been received, we will compile and present you with an accurate construction estimate. This helps us avoid surprises during the construction process and helps you make an informed decision on what features to keep or modify.

Step Six – Design Studio

At Modern Construction, you will work directly with an experienced Design Consultant, who will work with you on finalizing interior and exterior design details for your home. Our Design Consultants goal is to make sure that your home is finished and furnished to your liking and will be with you every step of the way as you select colours, fixtures, flooring, and more.

Step Seven – Plan Review

One of the most important steps in the Design-Build process is the transition from the design phase to the building phase. To ease the transition, Modern Construction, will facilitate a meeting between the project manager, sales manager, design consultant, and homeowners to ensure that the details regarding your new home are efficiently handed off to the construction team. The accuracy of information being handed off to our construction staff helps the efficiency of the build-out process.

Step Eight – Contract & Closing

Once the design of your home has been finalized and information has been handed off to construction staff, the next step is contract signing and closing. The construction contract will include a construction schedule, specifications document, home plans, allowance summary, and shop drawings. Once the contract documents are signed, you will be able to contact your lender to get approval for your loan. Rest assured your lender will do a full appraisal of the home to ensure that your home is priced appropriately and will work with the title company to get started with the closing process.

Step Nine – Building

When your lender has approved your loan and closing has happened, our construction staff will submit your plans for permitting and file a notice of commencement with the appropriate building jurisdiction. During the construction process, there will be 3 walkthroughs with the homeowners. Homeowners will have the opportunity to do a Pre-Drywall, Post-Drywall, and Punch-Out walkthrough with their project manager. These walkthroughs allow the homeowners and project manager to collaboratively review construction and work completed on their home up until that point in time. Walkthroughs are also a great way for the homeowners and project manager to find and correct any discrepancies between the plans and construction.

Step Ten – Move-In & Warranty

After a certificate of occupancy has been issued and you have completed your punch-out walkthrough with your project manager, your project manager will make sure to resolve any areas of concern. Once these items have been resolved, you will be able to move into your new custom home. If for any reason, you experience difficulties or issues with your home prior to move-in, know that you are covered by a 2-10 builder warranty. This warranty covers mechanical, plumbing, and electrical defects for 2 years and structural defects for a 10-year period. All other areas of your home are covered by a 1-year limited warranty or may be covered by an extended warranty directly through the manufacturer. Your homeowner’s manual will contain information on who to contact in case of emergency or to report any issues with your home.
