I often have customers ask how long it takes to plan and design a home.  The reality is that each project is different.  I have planned projects for over two years before actually starting construction.  If you are thinking about a custom design, know that you should not feel hurried.  The truth is that it takes time to get the design, specifications and budget right.  Any hurry during this stage will probably not result in an ideal home.  Take your time!

That said, one of the really fun parts of my job is getting to watch this hard work and planning come together.  Yesterday we were finally able to begin construction on a project that has been in planning and design for 11 months.  The picture above is actually the first scoop of dirt!  WooHoo!
