Building a new home is an exciting experience, but it can also be overwhelming—particularly if it's the first time you've built a home. That's why we walk you through each stage of the process upfront, ensuring you know what to expect at each step. We think the more you know, the more you'll enjoy the process and the happier you'll be with the end result.
We look forward to helping you choose a lot that fits your lifestyle and needs. Timberlin homes builds within an hour radius or 74 miles from Fort Wayne, covering northeast IN, southeast MI, northwest OH. Whether you desire to build in a subdivision or on your own acreage, Timberlin is ready to build you a new luxury home.
Because your home is an expression of you, it’s important that your Timberlin Home reflects your personal taste. Barclay explores the incorporation of architectural elements that demonstrate your style to create a most comfortable home that is uniquely yours.
First, we'll set up an informational meeting with you to discuss your needs. This meeting gives you a chance to ask questions about options and the building process. Other topics often addressed at this initial meeting are your location preferences, financial situation, current housing situation, time frame, and the style and size of the home you'd like to build. If you would like a list of references we will also make that available at this meeting.
We then meet with you again to nail down more specifics, including development of a preliminary floor plan, preliminary specifications and pricing, and the home site. Next, we work with you to finalize your floor plan, develop detailed specifications, and firm up pricing.
When your final plans, specifications, and price are complete, you will receive a personalized package that you will find helpful throughout the building process and beyond. The notebook contains meeting agendas and the schedule for selecting your home's components such as flooring, paint colors,hardware etc. It also includes home warranty information, blueprints, a contract copy, specifications, and forms that may be used as we go through construction.
Once we are ready to start we will schedule a preconstruction meeting to review the building process to schedule and manage your home's construction. You will review your plan, specifications, and the selection schedule and have the opportunity to raise any additional questions.
Our selection schedule offers you many opportunities to customize your home. For items such as cabinets, lighting, hardware, stone or brick, and finish flooring, we provide you with an allowance, a supplier source and a date by which the selection is needed and you make the selections.
Our involvement with your new home doesn't end when construction is complete. We follow up with you to ensure your complete satisfaction with your new home.
Once construction is done, we conduct a new home walkthrough with you to demonstrate your new home's features and confirm that it meets your expectations and approval. At 11 months we ask that you call our office to set up a walkthrough with Barclay Allen, President of Timberlin Homes. At your convenience he will tour your home with you and address any concerns that remain.
