You will be able to select all of the finishes for your new home including cabinets, countertops, hardwood, carpet, and tile.

The costs for your new home are calculated as the sum of the: (1) base price of the floorplan you choose, plus (2) the costs of any additional options or upgrades you select, plus (3) the cost of the site work associated with the construction of your new home.
Site work includes items such as demolition of any existing structures, earthwork, storm water management systems, utility connections, landscaping, and other costs that can only be calculated on a lot-specific basis. Like every other piece of land, your property has unique attributes and conditions that will need to be specifically reviewed. Because no two pieces of property are identical, no two properties will have identical scopes of site work. We will need to examine your specific property to determine the site work costs that will be associated with the construction of your new home. On a typical infill lot, site work costs will generally be $60,000-$80,000 in Virginia and $80,000-$100,000 in Maryland.
Typically, it will take 12 months from the time you sign the agreement until your home is completed. Approximately 4 months are needed to complete all design work and process the permits, followed by approximately 8 months of construction time.
All selections must be complete prior to starting construction on your new home. Additionally, major selections that affect the building permit, such as moving walls, adding a bathroom, or adding a deck, must be finalized within 30 days after the agreement is signed so that these options can be included in our permit submissions.
You will pay for you new home as construction progresses according to the following draw schedule:
|Deposit at time of contract||$25,000|
|Building permit issued||10% (less $25,000 deposit)|
|Clearing, excavation, footings, and foundations complete||15%|
|Rough-ins complete, close-in inspections passed||15%|
|Interior drywalled, trimmed, and primed||20%|
