Our Process

Building a home with Echelon is an amazing process and we strive to make it as enjoyable as possible for our clients.

We realize that the homes we build are the culmination of years of hard work and aspirations, and we feel clients deserve to enjoy the process of creating their dream home.

Designing Your Dream Home

Echelon Custom Home’s process is different from most other custom builders in the area. While we work well with architects we are also a design and build firm.

You will sit down with one of our Certified Professional Builder Designers to discuss the details of your custom dream home. During the process you’ll examine the design of the home form multiple views, site placement to site lines, traffic flow through the home and personalize the design to best suit you. All concepts are put together as an electronic 3D model that both the client and designer can explore to maximize the comfort of the home.

Our designers are exclusively focused on designing custom homes with great floor plans and awe-inspiring curb appeal. The quality of our designs is reflected in the numerous National and Regional Awards we have won for our homes.

In addition, you will be provided with a username and password to your Customer Looking Glass, a private area of our website where you can communicate with the designers, view written updates on progress, floor plans, and other documents specific to your home.

“Our concept was to build a ‘Hansel and Gretel’ cottage and the translation is amazing. The Echelon team understood our rather unusual request and the proof is in the pudding... we have a little bit of fairy tale at the beach!”

Working With Your Architect

At Echelon, we foster great relationships with architects and home designers.

I like working with the Echelon team. I sleep well at night knowing a project is being handled professionally and conscientiously by the talented, caring people at Echelon. They make one feel as if yours is the only home they are building. The project managers are extremely knowledgeable and keep their attention focused closely on each project. When a question arises, the Echelon team calls immediately to clarify either my intention or that of the clients. They keep us well-informed through emails, photographs and phone calls. Their design department guides the clients through the vast array of selections and keeps everyone on schedule. The whole process seems effortless.

Working with you and the Echelon Construction Team, to build the RB Yacht Club Residence, was one of the best experiences that I’ve had in my Design Career.
