THE KAIZEN PROCESS
Let’s face it - thinking about building a new house and actually building your new dream home are two very different processes. Kaizen Homes will walk you through each step systematically ensuring that the end result will be worth every penny of your investment.
PHASE 1 >>PREBUILD
DiscoveryDuring this initial meeting, we will get to know what your dreams are for your future home. What aspects do you need to create the life you want to live? Our goal at this first meeting is to make sure that we are ideally suited to execute your project.
Site visitTo get a better idea of the scope of your project, we will walk your property and assess the site difficulty, lot restrictions and the best placement for your house.
FundingAt this point, we request that you research and find appropriate funding for your build. Ideally, the design process will also begin at this stage, depending on your needs. You can either elect to move forward with your own architect or one that we recommend. If you have existing designs you may provide them at this time.
Prep WorkSurvey work, grading, excavation, and tree clearing will begin.
Complete PlansAs prep work finishes, you will finalize the home plans with your architect or designer. Additionally, at this stage, you can expect to start making necessary material selections including roofing, siding options, interior and exterior details, kitchen cabinet layouts, flooring, trim and even paint colors. This helps expedite the building process and governs overall budgetary outcomes.
Build EstimateAt this stage, Kaizen Homes will estimate the cost to build your home after receiving your formal plans from the architect.
Build AgreementOnce the Build Estimate has been approved, a Build Contract will be sent for signature. Upon signature, the Buildout process begins.
PHASE 2 >>BUILDOUT
PermitOnce the permit has been approved and posted to the job site, building begins.
On Site ReviewsPeriodically, we will request that you meet with us on site to review the progress of your build and discuss any issues or concerns you may have.
Ongoing Client CommunicationThroughout the building process, we encourage you to reach out to us both in person and through our communications platform, CoConstruct. With this easy-to-use application for mobile and your desktop, we can coordinate selections and deliver progress updates in real time.
Building CompletedAt this stage, the building phase has been completed and a certificate of occupancy is issued.
PHASE 3 >>BUILD
House CleanedWe want to make sure that your new home is clean and sparkling when you see it for the first time. We employ professional construction site cleaners to come and give your new home a thorough cleaning.
Punch listAt the completion of your new home, you and Kaizen will perform a thorough walk through of the house to look for any imperfections that need to be corrected before move-in day. This is your chance to request any final changes.
Welcome HomeIt’s time for us to hand over the keys and welcome you to your simply well built life.
