Custom home construction involves many complex variables. Making informed decisions on developing a suitable design, selecting the right materials and keeping on budget can be challenging for most clients. San Juan Islands Home Builders can help you with every stage of the building process, including hiring the right subcontractors and trades. We can manage your custom home project from start to finish.
San Juan Islands Home Builders is experienced in working on custom home projects of various types and sizes. Homes have become more complex over the years and building code requirements more stringent. This has affected the timeframe it takes to obtain building permits in the San Juan Islands area.
Many of our customers have found that it is helpful to understand the building process before construction begins. San Juan Islands Home Builders gives you realistic expectations and can help you make informed decisions about what is involved in construction in the following areas:
The cost to complete your home to occupancy will be dependent on the size, location and complexity of the project. The time taken, availability and quality of trades-people used will affect the labor component. The reality is that it is more important to consider the value of work being done than simply choosing trades based on a low hourly rate.
Choosing the right people can save on a lot of labor cost and fixing problems later on. Generally the use of higher quality material gives you a better finished result, less waste and lower maintenance as well as substantial cost savings during construction. San Juan Islands Home Builders uses best construction practices in all of their projects.
A new addition may be just what it takes to accommodate a changing family or special lifestyle needs. You can expand a kitchen, add a bathroom or change your existing home into the home of your dreams. Whatever you have in mind, San Juan Islands Home Builders can help.
As with any construction project, an addition to your home requires careful planning. Before you decide to go ahead with the project, it is important to clearly identify the features you want. Just as important is a thorough inspection of the current structure so that any existing problems can be corrected at the same time.
The key challenge is to make sure that your addition meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home. You will likely need help from a professional designer who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
At San Juan Islands Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.
Construction techniques for new homes have changed rapidly. Most of these improved techniques also apply to renovations. This is why it is important to select the right materials and professional builders, just as if you were building a new home.

Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation project. Consideration should be given to:

Construction is largely a sequential process. A variety of professional resources with a wide range of expertise is needed to complete a project successfully. They need to be available at the right time and be able to work together at different stages of the project. For example, when building components or manpower is not available at the jobsite when needed, it will cause delays. San Juan Islands Home Builders has the expertise to make the construction process go more smoothly and efficiently.
Shortcuts on material and labor will affect the outcome of the entire project. The cost to fix problems caused by the use of substandard materials or incorrect application can be substantial. Using the right materials and hiring the right expertise means a much better finished result and more value in your home.
Some of the more crucial areas where expertise is needed include:
In the construction of custom homes and major additions, all projects have different challenges. San Juan Islands Home Builders understands that the key to a successful outcome is to finalize your design and select the right materials before work starts.
Working with San Juan Islands Home Builders gives you the confidence that your project will go smoothly.
The design you choose will determine what kind of construction method needs to be used to build the home. More complex structures can include elements of post and beam or timber-frame construction combined with conventional framing. Homes can also include solid log rafter systems instead of posts and timbers. This means that different structural techniques are needed to support the roof and floors.
All structures have the advantage of being able to incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. Although they are a little more costly to build than conventional homes, they generally have a much higher appraised value.
San Juan Islands Home Builders can help you determine the right kind of design for your budget. Your choices of design, materials and construction method also play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home.
Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. San Juan Islands Home Builders is capable of building a wide variety of custom homes and uses premium quality building materials to give you a better-finished result.
