The Design Process is broken down into three steps:
- Prior to or at the time of the contract signing, all permitted options and color schemes must be finalized. This is done early on to prevent delays in construction.
- After the Purchase Agreement is signed, the homebuyer will schedule and attend an Orientation Appointment to familiarize them with the selection offerings.
- A few days after the Orientation Appointment, the homebuyer will attend the Selection Appointment. All selections must be finalized within 15 days of the Orientation Appointment. Review your contact to understand the Design Deadlines!
Even before you purchase a home, you can come in and preview the selections during business hours. However, in order to receive personal attention, an appointment is necessary. The Design Process may require several appointments as outlined in your Purchase Agreement. The first appointment may last around 3 to 4 hours as you learn about your preferences and style. Subsequent appointments may be shorter if you are simply finalizing your selections.
Imagine how you and your family will utilize each room. List all of the details that will impact your lifestyle – location of outlets, pre-wiring, and lighting to list a few. Next, visit our decorated models and gather inspiration from the options showcased. We recommend you bring any photos or other design inspiration to the Design Studio appointment to assist your Design Consultant in understanding your style and preferences. Finally, Design Studio appointments can take a few hours. Arrange for a babysitter so that you can focus on the appointment.
