At Mountain View Builders, we believe building a custom home should be an exciting and rewarding experience. Our comprehensive process ensures your journey from ideas and dreams to move-in day is seamless and enjoyable. Here's a step-by-step look at how we work to bring your vision to life:

1. Ideas & Dreams

During your introductory meeting, you'll sit down with the owner of Mountain View Builders to discuss the components of your custom home: living area size, budget, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and more.

Bring your scrapbook, ideas, and dreams to this first meeting. Showcase pictures of home exteriors and styles that resonate with you. Do you prefer a conventional stick-built home, or are you drawn to a modern post-frame structure? Whether you're dreaming of a craftsman home, a minimalist modern design, or something entirely unique, we'll help you make it happen.

  • Conventional or Post-Frame Structure
    Choose between traditional stick-built homes or modern post-frame structures.

  • Turn-Key or DIY
    Select a full turn-key package or lockable shells for DIY savings.

  • Value Engineering or Luxury Features
    Focus on value engineering for affordability or opt for luxury features.

2. Design Phase

Mountain View Builders will recommend a design firm, or you can choose your own. This firm will translate your ideas into preliminary design drawings.

  • Architectural Design
    Create preliminary design drawings reflecting your vision and structural needs.

  • Design Meeting
    Meet with the design firm to review and refine your preliminary drawings. After approval, they'll create the full set of home construction drawings.

3. Selections

Once your design drawings are complete, meet with Mountain View Builders to discuss construction selections and finish choices. Our preferred vendors will help you find the perfect plumbing, lighting, cabinet, and hard surface finishes for your new home.

  • Selection Phase
    Select all materials and components for your home's construction and finishes.

  • Approval Meeting
    Finalize your construction budget, review the final construction drawings, and sign the contracts.

4. Construction

Once permits are secured, construction begins. Mountain View Builders' owner is onsite to ensure quality, manage costs, and oversee scheduling and safety.

  • Construction Phase
    Our team manages cost, scheduling, quality, and safety throughout the build.

  • Construction Walk-Through
    Walk through your framed home to confirm door swings, plumbing, electrical outlets, and cabinet layouts.

  • Final Walk-Through
    Once construction is substantially complete, we'll schedule a final walk-through to identify any touch-ups needed.

5. Move-In!

After the final walk-through, our team will complete any punch-list items and await the final occupancy inspection.

  • Punch-List & Final Occupancy
    We'll fix any punch-list items and obtain the occupancy permit so you can move in.

  • Warranty Period
    Mountain View Builders warranties your home against defects for 12 months. We'll schedule an appointment to fix any issues at the 11-month mark.
