OK, you're ready! You've decided on the perfect home site, you know exactly which floor plan you want, how much customization you would like, and you've got your financing lined up. What's next?

Step 1: Make Your Decisions

It's time to go to contract, and  in order to do that, you need to make a few decisions regarding your new home up front so that it can be included in your agreement. You will sit with our draftsman who will help design your perfect home.  This is done so that as soon as everyone has signed off, the building process can get started right away! Plans are drawn, a survey ordered, energy calculations secured and roof truss engineered. Here's what you need to know:

  • Model name
  • Exterior elevation
  • Garage right or left, as viewed from street

All structural options like a bonus room or extra square footage that’ll be part of the "foot print", including any additional customization you’d like to include.

Step 2: Sign Your Agreement

It's time to sign your Agreement!  This is a very important step in the process and outlines everyone's responsibilities for the construction of your new home. It sets out time line for action, buyer and seller responsibilities, and other general terms and conditions.  Your sales consultant will thoroughly review all the paperwork with you to make sure you understand every word. Ask questions! It's our job to answer all your questions so that you are comfortable with the process.

Step 3: Personalize Your Home

After the contract has been fully executed, the color selections, options and upgrade selection process can begin. A meeting will be scheduled at Trivett Homes’ Model Center with someone from our team to finalize your plans, options and color selections. There you will decide on all the interior finishes. This is the fun part!  This is where you get to make your house a home.

Please note that the timeframe for completing selections is one of your contractual requirements because construction of your home cannot begin until your plan is finalized, all the materials are ordered and a building permit is submitted for approval and granted. If you are not able to make your design selections personally, designate a representative to make the choices for you.

The more prepared you are the more fun you will have!  Put some thought into exactly what you want ahead of time so you can be sure of your choices at the time selections are made.  Changes made after purchase orders have been released and/or construction has begun are costly and will delay the construction process.

Step 4: Finalize Your Financing

The additional options and colors you select will be added to your agreement. In some cases, a portion of the options may be financed along with the purchase of your home. Note and remit additional deposits due as specified in the agreement and finally, finish up your loan application and submit a copy of your loan commitment to Trivett Homes. During this time, all of the purchase orders will be initiated so that as soon as your building permit is received, all of the components of building your new home can be assembled in a “START” package and released to your builder.
