The Custom Home Building Process

Planning for your Custom Home in New Jersey

As Licensed Professional Home Builders, we understand the importance of making the custom home building process enjoyable for our clients - even pleasant and fun! In our mind,  this matters just as much as building you a high-quality home that you'll live in happily for as long as it meets your lifestyle. Too often, contractors don’t take the time to build a relationship with their clients. A poor connection can result in errors in construction and miscommunication, making the custom home building process a hassle, or even a tumultuous experience.


We know that a robust project plan, coupled with professional communication, results in high customer satisfaction. We invite you to take a look at the design-build remodeling process, and the tools we use to create beautiful custom homes across New Jersey. 

 

 

Our Process

Once we have developed and agreed on the Statement of  Work, a document that defines project-specific activities, deliverable, and a timeline, we follow these proven process steps:

 

Pre-Construction Meeting(s) - During this time, we will lay-out the construction process, as well as the plan we have developed based on the specific needs and expectations for your home. We will clarify and assign responsibility to all individuals involved in your custom home project, and will address your questions and concerns. 

At this time, we will work with all necessary parties to obtain permits, complete any applications, and submit building plans and/or site plans to the necessary entities. 

 

On-Site Meetings - Our clients meet with GTG Builders' principals on a regular basis. This allows you to discuss scheduling items, ask any questions you may have, coordinate selections such as materials, colors, and more.

 

Change Orders - All changes our clients make to the original Statement of Work are documented by GTG Builders. Our team makes sure to communicate these changes with all parties to ensure those change requests are clear and we deliver on them precisely and correctly.

 

Site Supervisor - Each project we start has a designated project manager. The project manager is one of our three owners and is in charge of all site work and its conditions. This dedicated project manager is available at all times and acts as the main conduit between you and the extended GTG Builders' team.

 

Communication- We understand that everyone has their preferred style of communication. We will be sure to base our communication on the style you prefer and can accommodate phone, email, text or a combination of all three.
