New Home Design Questionnaire – you complete our “New Home Design Questionnaire.” We want to gain a complete understanding of your dreams, needs, desires, and budget for your new custom home, so your home will be an accurate reflection of you and your lifestyle. You will then meet with Dale Cole to review your completed questionnaire and discuss your new home design in detail.

New Home Design Development Cole Builders will develop a conceptual design for your new home, and review that design with you. Based on your input and the site parameters, that design is then finalized. We invite you to be as involved as you would like in the design of your new custom home.

Final plans and construction documents – once the design is complete, we then prepare construction documents including specifications for all the materials that will be used in your new home. We present you with a complete package including our proposal to build your new custom home.
