Discover Our Process
Many clients come to us without plans or an understanding of the building process. We provide a no-cost consultation to help narrow down needs, desires and budget. We rely on previous custom homes that we’ve built to showcase our quality and design solutions and review possible options. We can take you on a tour of some of our past projects that reflect your vision.
We are accustomed to working with busy clients with limited time. Most of our larger projects can be managed with one 2 hour meeting per week, although through our organized methods and technology we have built and remodeled homes with many customers who lived in other states and countries during the building process. We have years of success in working with building inspectors, Planning Boards and Boards of Adjustment if you need variances to build.
We frequently produce our own architectural drawings for smaller projects and recommend various local architects for large-scale projects. As Realtors we have access to all the current land listings and have a lot of experience that will help you find the best building lot for your needs and price range. When you work with D. D. Cook you’ll receive all the advantages of one-stop-shopping!
We are fully insured and do not require large up-front deposits and we clearly spell out our payment schedule before signing any contracts. Our paperwork is thorough and easy to understand so you always know exactly what you are getting. Our competent staff and careful scheduling ensures that all our projects are delivered on time. We’re proud to have a long list of satisfied customers and will gladly provide references upon request.
Our Green Building
Since our inception in 1984, we have always prioritized the energy saving aspects of our projects. We keep abreast of all the latest technologies for energy efficiency and sustainability while building a home for you that is environmentally friendly. We can discuss specific green building options with you.
We pride ourselves on our in-house capabilities, including our team of finished carpenters and cabinet makers, but also maintain strong relationships with established, local plumbers, electricians, excavation contractors, painters, framers and literally hundreds of well qualified, insured sub-contractors and suppliers. We ensure competitive bidding by having great relationships with several vendors in each area of the building process.
