Our Proven Home Building Process

How We Build Custom Homes


Building a custom home should be an enjoyable and rewarding experience that starts with your vision and ends with your dream home. At Hibbs Homes, we've been building custom homes since 2004, refining our procedures and processes to deliver a superior home and home building experience to every client.

From the very beginning of your project, our team works closely with you to ensure your home's design falls within your vision and your budget. Throughout your home's construction, you have the full support of a dedicated construction and design team and you can rely on our proven process to bring your dream home to life.


Step 1 - Discovery

During the discovery phase, we learn more about your goals and vision for your custom home. We will discuss your needs, wants, and wishes and begin exploring your construction budget gaosl. We will also sit down with you during this phase to discuss our construction process so you come into the project with a full understanding of what to expect moving forward.

Step 2 - Finding & Evaluating Land

If you haven't already purchased land to build your home on, we can help pair you with one of our Realtor partners to find the perfect location for your new home. If you have already purchased land to build on, a member of our construction team will visit the property to evaluate the lot conditions and give you feedback on how topography, utilities, and clearing may impact your project's design and budget.

Step 3 - Design & Budgeting

When you have purchased a lot and are ready to begin construction, we will sign a Pre-Build Agreement to begin the process. This agreement allows our home building team to begin to assist you with project preparation, design, and budget planning. If you haven't already selected an architect and floor plan, you can work with our in-house architect or we can help you find an architect. We will work closely with you and the design to ensure your design achieves your vision and is within your target budget range without compromising on quality.


Step 4 - Estimating

Once your design is complete, our estimator will work with you to begin developing a budget that reflects true construction costs. At the end of the estimation phase, we will provide you with a detailed document that outlines all of the costs you can expect during your home's construction process. Once you have approved your design and budget, we will give you a Price Guarantee on your new home's construction budget.

Step 5 - Construction

With design and budget approved, we are ready to move into the active construction phase of your project. You will be assigned a Construction Superintendent to be your on-site contact and who will manage your project from excavation to moving day. They will visit your job site daily and are there to answer questions throughout the process and ensure your project is coming together according to your vision. You will have access to your home every day, and we schedule walks through the site at key points during construction to discuss progress.

Step 6 - Warranty

When the active construction phase is complete, we will walk with you through your home before closing to ensure everything is perfect. We will then schedule a visit at four and 11 months to address any warranty issues that may have come up after you've settled into your home. We offer a full one-year workmanship warranty on your new home that also includes work and products from our trades and vendors.
