Crafting Your Dream Home: Choosing the Best Orlando Custom Home Builder

When you’ve made the exciting decision to build your dream home, your next step is to find the best Orlando custom home builder for the job. 

Congratulations on starting the journey of building your dream home! At Meinhart Homes, we recognize that building a home is a significant decision, and we understand that you likely spent a lot of valuable time thinking about this momentous choice. 

Where do you begin searching for a trustworthy company to help make your dream a reality? Here, we offer some characteristics to look for in an Orlando custom home builder.

Focus On Your Mission

Our mission is your mission. We want you to bring your vision to the table at our first meeting – literally. Do you have any design ideas? Floor plans you love? Inspo photos? We want it all! Our job is to bring your vision to life, and the best way to do that is with a solid plan that includes you.

If you meet with a builder who tries to push floor plans, designs or finishes you don’t love, that could be a sign of a rough relationship ahead. The best Orlando custom home builders are great listeners who focus on clients’ 100% satisfaction. 

Skilled Design Team

Once we have an idea of your vision, our architects can get to work. There’s nothing like seeing an idea fleshed out on paper to get clients more excited about building their home. In the design stage, we will produce blueprints and nail down some of the more significant design elements.

Having a solid building design makes the rest of the process go smoothly. Without skilled designers on your builders’ team, you could face delays as you wait for changes and revisions to plans and drawings that can dramatically set back your completion date. 

Budget Considerations

We want you to be completely comfortable with us and your plan, so we do all the structural design work before you sign a contract. This practice sets us apart from many other custom home builders, but establishing that level of trust is essential before our partnership becomes legally binding. 

As we work through your plans, we will consider your budget. Every build is different, and every budget is different. If there is an overage on budgeted materials because the client chose an upgrade, they are responsible for that overage. On the flip side, if we come in under budget, that extra money goes back to the client. 

Another budgetary consideration would be when a client makes a change after the contract is signed. For example, if we went to contract with an asphalt shingle roof and the client wants to change to a metal roof, we would prepare a change order that must be signed by both parties. It is our goal to build your dream home to your specifications and within your budget.

Permit Experts

Much of the time during the building process seems to be spent waiting. Waiting for concrete to cure, waiting for the weather to cooperate, and waiting for permits to be approved. The best way to speed up the permit process is to submit applications early and correctly. We have submitted so many permits over the years that we have this process down to a science.

Once the permits have been approved, we can finally begin construction. Here, things get exciting because your vision has gone from your imagination to paper to an actual structure. 

Open Communication

Our family-owned business has been working with Orlando homeowners for over 25 years. During this time, we have seen the importance of keeping an open line of communication throughout the building process. We will let you know immediately if there is an unforeseen delay or expense. And if you have any questions along the way, we want to know.
