Your Curated Home Journey:

An abundanceof options.

To ensure that our curated home line meets the needs and preferences of our clients, we conducted thorough market research, including focus groups and social polling. As a result, we have curated over 35 floor plans in an array of architectural styles; including Craftsman, Modern, American Standard and Farmhouse. Selecting the perfect layout for your home has never been easier.

You’ll work with Everything Home, our interior design partner, to help you through the selection process, including choosing paint, cabinet color and style, countertops, and flooring from our curated design studio. With so many constantly changing choices, you’ll visit the showrooms of our preferred partners to select your plumbing and lighting fixtures and appliances.

For those who want a head start on selections, we offer pre-approved design packages, or “vignettes”, for a stress-free experience. Trust our experts to handle the details, so you can focus on the big picture.

The Old Town Process

Your curated home journey starts with an introduction to your New Home Consultant, who will work with you on lot selection and guide you through the initial design process. We’ll provide you with a cost estimate based on your selected lot and initial plans, and if you’re ready to move forward, we’ll work on final design and pricing. With your approval, we’ll then begin the construction of your home, all the while keeping you informed and involved in every step of the process. At Old Town Design Group, we’re committed to making your home building experience stress-free and enjoyable.

Step 1:

Site Evaluation

Whether you have the perfect spot in mind or want us to help you find it, our in-house team not only knows where to look for outstanding locations, but they also have the experience to identify unique lot features.

Your detailed lot analysis includes utilizing laser technology to assess the grade and determine factors such as home placement, potential water issues, and the need for fill. Often, the prep work for any given lot can vary by tens of thousands of dollars. If you’re trying to choose between multiple lots, our experienced team will help you determine which one is best for you.

Designed Around You

In your design consultations, our team gets to know you and how you live so we can suggest innovative home floor plans and stand-out features that fit your personality, family, and lifestyle.

We offer a curated collection of more than 35 unique floor plans and elevations, providing a vast range of options to suit every taste and lifestyle. Each floor plan has been thoughtfully designed to maximize space and functionality, while maintaining the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship. Once you’ve selected your floor plan, you’ll customize hundreds of features and options, tailoring your home to your specific needs and desires.

Our integrated design-build process allows us to provide guidance on key decisions, ensuring that you understand the impact they have on both design and construction costs. Our process not only saves time, but also provides valuable insight and peace of mind, allowing you to make informed decisions and create a home that perfectly suits your needs and budget.

With all of the details of your home plans in hand, we create a project timeline and start construction on your home. Our interactive project management system, BuilderTrend, empowers you to be informed throughout the build process, keeps your construction timeline on track, reminds you when it is time to make your next selections, and stores all your building documents in one place. Regular communication with your Core Team keeps you up-to-date on the progress of your new home and allows you to ask questions whenever they come to mind.
