1. Initial Consultation

We like to get to know our clients, their hopes, concerns, budget, and expectations before the project begins. Set up a consultation with us to start discussing what would make your ultimate dream home. Do you have your eye on a certain home lot in St. George, UT, or elsewhere in Southern Utah? How many rooms would you like to have? What matters most to you and your family? What does your house need to make it home? What are your interests and how can we incorporate them into your custom home designs?

Our homes are so unique because they are so tailored to each individual client. Your custom home will be no different.

2. Design

We may be the ones drafting up the home designs, but every decision comes down to your approval. We’ll include your list of must-have features, from a backyard pool and hot tub to sliding drawers that are custom-sized for your kitchenware. No detail is too big or too small so long as it’s what you want.

Our professional home designers will keep your budget in mind during the design phase as well. Our goal is to do everything possible to include the features you love while keeping the project within your price range.

3. Construction

Once the custom home design is complete, construction begins! Our contractors take every safety precaution necessary, adhering to city codes for new home construction while building your home.

High-quality craftsmanship is not something we sacrifice in our effort to keep things on or ahead of schedule. We carefully construct and customize all the details and features you choose for the home’s design.

Construction time for a custom-built home can range anywhere from six months to over a year, depending on the home type and size. But that’s just construction time. When you’re custom building a home, you also need to factor in planning, drafting, designing, and styling, as well as build time. You’ll also need to take the time to find a lot in an area you like, buy your land, and help in the design of your home. When you choose to custom build your home, you’re looking at anywhere from a year and a half to two years to complete your home.

Pre-construction and planning alone can take three to six months or up to a year to complete, especially if you aren’t sure what kind of home you want. The time for pre-construction greatly depends on how prepared clients are before choosing to work with Richardson Brothers Custom Homes to design and build their home. Once pre-construction is complete, your home can take over a year to finish. However, Richardson Brothers will work quickly and efficiently to help you get into your custom home as soon as possible. Though custom home building takes longer than buying a pre-built house, the wait is worth it to have your home be exactly what you want.

Building a custom home can be a complicated process, but choosing the right home builder can help things run smoothly. When you choose a home builder, make sure they’re the best for the job by checking several things off a list:

They work with you directly

A good home builder like Richardson Brothers Custom Homes will work directly with you through the entire process. This is a sign that the company is reliable and prioritizes their customers. If they promptly answer all your questions and are dependable whenever you need to discuss your home, they’re likely a good match for your home. At Richardson Brothers Custom Homes, we provide frequent communication so that you know exactly what to expect.

They inspect your home throughout the process

Reliable home builders will provide third-party inspections for things like your HVAC system, roof, electrical, and plumbing while your home is being built. It means the company cares about their customers and the home they will be living in. At Richardson Brothers Custom Homes, we will run through several inspections as we build your custom home to ensure you get the highest quality possible.

They’ve been in the home building business for a while

While not all new home building companies are bad, sometimes the amount of time someone has been in business can indicate their level of skill and experience. The longer a company has been in the business, the more likely they are to build quality homes. At Richardson Brothers, we have over 25 years of experience building custom homes.

Previous clients are happy with their homes

If you’ve found a home builder that looks promising, be sure to look at reviews before making any decisions. Online reviews are easy to find and can easily show you how satisfied previous customers are with their custom homes. At Richardson Brothers, we pride ourselves in the numerous happy customers we have made with our home building services.

At Richardson Brothers Custom Homes, we believe in creating high-quality homes built with superior materials and meticulous attention to detail. Our superior workmanship quality should give you protection against structural and other issues that a warranty is meant to address. However, we know the peace of mind that a warranty can provide, which is why we offer a Quality Home Builders Warranty with every custom home we build. The Quality Home Builders Warranty is the premier and most selective home warranty in the United States. This warranty is only provided through builders that have passed rigorous standards of integrity and building quality.

The Quality Home Builders Warranty is a 10-year warranty backed by Liberty Mutual, one of the largest insurance groups in the U.S. In the first year, the warranty covers your home’s doors, windows, roofing, lot drainage, masonry, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, and much more, while the warranty covers the septic system, pipes, and ductwork through year two. For a full 10 years after building completion, you can rest at ease knowing that your home’s load-bearing walls, roof framing, foundation, and floor systems are covered. Learn more about the Quality Builders Warranty specifics here.

Getting a warranty for your home is entirely up to you. Most people opt to go with a custom-built home because of its innate quality, making it unnecessary to have a home warranty. However, a home is one of the biggest investments many people make, so it makes sense that you would want to protect your new home with a warranty.

Even if you never have to make a claim, a home warranty can still give you peace of mind that you will be covered in a worst-case scenario. A comprehensive home warranty helps you enjoy your home and minimize disruption and hassle if something does come up. If you’d like to submit a warranty request, contact us or visit our online solution page.

When you work with Richardson Brothers Custom Homes, you can pick your own lot, or we can work with you to find a lot. Choosing the perfect plot for your forever home can be an exciting task, and many of our clients enjoy handling the search themselves. But it can also be overwhelming, and we understand our custom home-building clients vary when it comes to goals and situations. If you choose to select your own lot, Richardson Brothers Custom Builders is always available for consultation and assistance.

At Richardson Brothers Custom Homes, our name says it all. We work to build homes that are completely customized to our clients. After all, it is your home, so you should be able to customize it however you want. Here are some areas of customization to consider:

Room sizes

When you work with us to design your home, you not only have the power to decide what rooms you want in your house and how many, but you can decide on all your room sizes as well. Maybe you’re looking for a larger kitchen but a smaller living room. Tell us the exact dimensions you want for both rooms, and we’ll make it happen. Do you want a room to be a shape other than a rectangle? We can do that too. No matter how you want to size and shape your room, we’ll work with you to make your vision come to life.

Where things go

Do you have a dream layout for your kitchen? If you already know where you want everything to go, from your kitchen sink to the stove and oven, we’ll work with you to create a functional and aesthetic custom home. You can even choose the placement of other things in your home like your fireplace, closets, and more.

Shelving and storage

If you have a lot of books, decorative objects, or seasonal items, shelving and storage can be a lifesaver. When you design a custom home with us, you can choose how much shelving and storage and exactly where you want it in your home.

During the design process, there are many things to think about. We can help you through the entire process, but here are some good starting points for your custom home:

  • What size home do you want? Do you want something larger or are you trying to downsize?
  • What type of layout do you want? Choose between an open floor plan or a closed or traditional floor plan.
  • What rooms do you want in your home? If you’re looking to build a smaller home, you may just want essential rooms. However, if you want something a little larger, consider adding rooms like an office, guest room, or even a second living room.
  • How many levels do you want your home to have? Do you want a one-story home or a house with multiple levels?
  • Are there any special features you want your home to include? Consider things like an additional fireplace, a built-in toe-kick vacuum, stainless steel appliances, a kitchen island, and more.
