Starting the Process of Designing Your Custom Home
Let’s Get Going!
Once you have chosen ECOterra DESIGN-BUILD as your custom home builder, it is time for us to learn all about you! We want to review and discuss what is most important to you and your family in your new home.
We will provide you with a comprehensive design questionnaire to complete.
Here are some of the subjects covered in the questionnaire that you will need to consider and ultimately make decisions about:
Quantity | Sizes | Configurations
Closets | Bathrooms
Quantity | Sizes | Styles | Fixtures
Showers | Bathtubs
Once your questionnaire is complete, ECOterra will meet with you to review your questionnaire and images in detail.
When the initial design meeting between you and ECOterra has been completed, we will use your feedback to prepare an initial draft of the home shape and proposed floor plan. In this first draft, we take into consideration the placement of the home on the lot, the home’s orientation in relation to the sun (to optimize solar efficiency) and any views from the lot.
Upon agreement of the home shape and floor plan, ECOterra begins the architectural drawings. This starts an iterative process of you providing feedback to ECOterra so that we can fine-tune the floor plan, features and elevations until you are happy.
If you are a client relocating from out of the area, ECOterra will work with you on home design via ZOOM, email and phone calls.
The ECOterra design phase can take approximately two to four months.
