If you are thinking about building a new custom luxury home, have these questions entered your mind?

  • Will the lot I’m considering work with the house I want to build?

  • Which architect should I use to design my new custom home?

  • How much is my ideal home going to cost?

Artistic Contractor’s Design Build Program is a comprehensive approach to designing and constructing the custom home of your dreams. From conception to completion, we specialize in guiding our clients through the entire process. Starting with the evaluation of the lot, collaboration with our team of architects and designers, all the way through the selection of final finishes, we work with you to leave no stone unturned. Our process is completely turn-key. You will have a complete understanding of all construction aspects that affect the design and budget of your new home.

We work with many of the most prestigious architects, both locally and nationally. After getting a good understanding of your project and vision, we match you with the architect that best fits your style and budget. We discover the unique qualities you are looking for in your new luxury home and guide the architect through the design, ensuring your project stays on budget without compromising the overall vision. Your project will be well planned before breaking ground to ensure quality, style and efficiency.

Artistic Contractors has the distinct advantage of designing custom homes in-house with 3D software.  This will allow you to walk through the home in virtual reality while it is being designed!  The major benefits of this include enhanced ability to identify aspects of the design that you really like and areas that require additional attention.  Attributes can be changed with the click of a mouse, allowing you to select the finishes up front instead of making costly mistakes while construction is underway.  Furthermore, Artistic Contractors is able to estimate the home with even more precision because all aspects of the home are well thought-out and easily viewable in 3D.
