Design & Build Expertise

Our motto, “Experience Custom,” is founded on a simple philosophy that aligns extraordinary design and premier construction services. The Ecraft difference brings authenticity and value through innovative design, build techniques, and a thorough all-in-one process.
Ecraft creates inheritable homes, curated to include all the factors – setting, plans, materials, efficiency and cost. Our clients enjoy specialized step-by-step guidance in all of these areas with our unique and simple process.

Our Process

Our process is broken down into easy-to-manage phases:

Land Purchasing + Procurement

When a good lot hits the market, time is of the essence. If you work with one of Ecraft’s licensed agents/affiliates, or if you have your own trusted agent, we can navigate the transaction together.
If you already have secured your lot we can also help you navigate the items you will need to make sure the land is suitable for build, and what is required for a house grading plan. We can provide a proposal that typically includes the following:

  • Procuring all utility essentials such as sewer availability or soil engineers for septic perc test
  • Contracting survey work needed for site plans
  • Permit requirements

Phase 1 | Home Plan Creation

  • House plans based on an existing concept. You have walked or seen something online
  • Custom start with just an idea
  • As we design your home’s dimensions and layout, we walk through its design details and compile a Look Book of the spaces. Prices do vary but start at $1.5 per sq ft for a pricing/study set of plans.

Phase 2 | Design Development + Preliminary Pricing

Using the information we have gathered about your home vision, the Ecraft team gets to work creating the “foundation map” to your home by curating all the selections. We look at all the possibilities alongside the factors affecting them: money, style, warranty and more. It’s all about balance to get the perfect fit for our client.

  • Look Book/Concept Meeting. Our team reviews and compiles all of your home design inspirations into a Look Book. Ideas, along with allowances, are discussed so that the finished budget can reflect appropriate monies for finishes.
  • Preliminary Pricing. Along with showing you what items will go into the home, we will discuss cost. After this meeting, most customers will know if they want to become clients or not. We might still have things to work on, but we know if it’s a good partnership or not.
  • Moving Forward. Ecraft will require a construction deposit and letter of intent. This releases all of the Ecraft team to work on your project.

Phase 3 | Contract and Construction

Ecraft doesn’t like leaving the bottom line up to chance. We put lots of time and energy into all the things going into the home so that we can create a FIXED cost build price. There is no guesswork as to what the finished build price will be.

After the build deposit required to begin work on your new home, we can really sink our teeth into all the details, design, development, permits and engineering. You will get a quote for any outside trade costs that might be incurred before the final plan as well as:

  • A log-in for our online management software. Real time questions answered and selection details.
  • The Design Team starts final selections on finishes and plan changes, and schedules a final design day where they walk you through all the selections, so you can see, touch and edit as wanted.
  • Engineering begins for the site work (Trades such as survey and engineer will provide bids per job)
  • Engineering begins for lumber/framing needs
  • If mortgage financing is needed, we can provide and assist with bookkeeping and documentation.
  • Permit requirements are itemized for application needs. Submittals in full swing

Phase 4 | Final Design and Set of Plans

  • Our design and construction team will review the details of the plans so that they can finalize build sets. (Adding electrical layouts, ordering engineering on the framing plan and mechanicals.)
  • We review the material options that fit your style, flow, and budget. Then we prepare visual samples so that our team can present your entire home’s finishes inside and out, walking you through all the details of your home. It’s our job to show you all the options that are available.
  • Additionally, we can start working on permits, required surveys, and the required engineering for those. (Additional upfront cost for survey trades and permits are expected.)

Phase 5 | Go Time - Construction Project Management

  • Our online management software keeps communication about all aspects of the build current and open. It makes your home build manageable and trackable, showing real-time choices or modifications. It includes a simple calendar and cost-to-date tracker that you can conveniently access from your phone.
  • You will have a project manager onsite, and there will be several onsite team meetings with you throughout the build.
  • Our team will manage your build with utmost care. While things might not always go perfectly, we always strive for perfection.
