During each phase of the project, you will have our full attention and we will be there with you every step of the way, answering every question and explaining every detail, taking your input to assure you piece of mind in the final product. At Stonebridge Builders, you work with the owner, not a project manager.
Step 1 - Build Consultation
At our initial meeting, we want to get to know you and understand what you're looking for in your new home! Tell us your thoughts, ideas, bring pictures, sketches, and anything else that will help us better understand what your wants and needs are. If you already have a selected property, it's best for us to see it firsthand to help determine the project design. At this time, it's also a good idea to start talking about a project budget and financing.
