Selecting Your Dream Team for Your Luxury Custom Build

Your Luxury Home Dream Team

When making the decision to build a luxury custom home, the first steps to the design process is to select your Dream Team in your location. This team of professionals includes an Architect, a knowledgable Builder, an Interior Designer, and a great Landscape Architect. Each professional brings their expertise to the table working together to accomplish the most amazing house possible for the client.

Having these experts on your Dream Team at the beginning stages is crucial to a well-managed project from beginning to end. Each expert will be looking into your project from a different vantage point.

For example, your Builder is going to oversee the full construction of your home from start to finish. Their services go beyond just building your home; they also handle all the financial matters of the build, communicate with an HOA, and work with the city for inspections.

Your Architect is in charge of outlining your floor plan and will be the artistic eye while creating the exterior style of your home. They are also responsible for following design guidelines set by your HOA & the city and coordinating permits for the structural and engineering aspects of the plans.

Along with your architect, your Landscape Architect is going to be necessary when outlining the exterior areas of your home. You’ll need them for patios, gardens, pools, and the aesthetics of all your outdoor living spaces. Typically, clients involve the landscape architect from the very beginning; however, in some projects, the Landscape Architect can be pulled in after plans have been finalized.

And, of course, the final member of your complete Dream Team is your Interior Designer! Your interior designer oversees your space’s flow & overall design from the architect adding their professional eye and input.

Once plans are finalized with the architect, your interior designer systematically presents and guides you through every single aesthetic decision as it relates to your interiors. Your designer will communicate all designs in scaled drawings, renderings, and specifications to your builder for construction, and will be there through the construction process to ensure design implementation.

Your Dream Team must fit into your vision and expectations of the project, and vice versa. We suggest selecting your team wisely, doing your homework & trusting your gut. Building a luxury custom home is an exciting & extremely complex venture. We encourage you to pick the team of professionals that you feel comfortable with, that you trust, and that you will enjoy working with throughout your project.

Interior designers don’t just design your luxury custom home details, but we focus on the client experience, bringing joy to building a custom home and alleviating the stress. The first step to starting the design process is to select a Dream Team that will contribute to your beautiful, luxury custom home, and provide you with a professional, positive home-building experience.
