Thank you for your interest in working with Shady Lane Construction! We’re excited that you’ve chosen us to build your new home or upgrade your existing space. Our process is proven to get your project off the ground as quickly as possible while meeting all your needs and expectations. We’ll be here every step of the way through completion to make sure you have a full understanding of what’s happening and keep you in the loop. The following is our proven process for delivering a high-quality, affordable product.
Discovery + Consultation
The first step in our process is to meet with you in-person to discuss your ideas and understand your timeline and budget. This is the time to bring your photos, floorplans, Pinterest boards and any other wish list ideas you want to incorporate into your project. We’ll be offering our own ideas as well as addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Let’s take this opportunity to get to know each other, discuss pricing, and determine if we’re the right fit for you!
Once you’ve decided to move forward, we will move into our Pre-Construction/Design phase. In this phase, we dive into your project with our design team and turn your ideas and selections into a preliminary construction budget and drawings/3D renderings. Upon design completion, we will take the new design through the permit process to secure permits for construction.
Once we start construction you’ll never have to guess at the status of your home; we strive to provide realistic expectations throughout the project. We provide clear and consistent updates on budget, schedule, and progress through a user-friendly app. Alongside quality, clear communication is our top priority. Our internal team meets weekly on the status of your build and more often as required. These meetings help keep you informed of construction progress overall, and allows for regular discussions along the way.
As we get close to finishing up the project, we’ll meet with you 2-3 weeks prior to turnover to address any items that need attention and answer any questions you may have. At this time, we’ll discuss our warranty process for after the completion of your project. Once settled into your new home, we maintain an open dialogue with scheduled home checks at 3, 6, and 12-month intervals.
