Thank you Kevin Cruiser, Rick Hackman, and the CMS team. We had the Covington model built almost two years ago on a few acres of our own. I really couldn’t be happier with our home! Kevin did a superb job making the customizations we wanted and Rich helped us so much during the building process. Two years later, our house is just as awesome as it was when we built it. I can’t thank you enough — it has been a complete blessing to us!

10 Steps to Build Your Semi-Custom or Custom Home

CMS Homes’ expert team collaborates to keep your home-building project running smoothly while you carry on with your daily life without the stress of managing your home build. Check out the 10 easy steps that only CMS Homes offers to build your semi-custom or custom home in Lincoln County, Warren County, or St. Charles County.

Step 1: Initial Conversation

Your home-building journey starts with a no-obligation conversation between you and our Build Anywhere representative. You will discuss home site location, the size of your lot, your budget, and if you have architectural plans already.

Step 2: First In-depth Meeting
In this meeting, we discuss the details of your home’s design, floor plan, build options, and homesite. If you have your own plans, we will use those to start pricing your home-building project. If you decide to build a CMS Home, we will help you choose from one of our beautiful base models and customize it as much as you want to fit your needs. Typically, there are several design adjustments along the way until you arrive at the new home you want at a budget that works for you.
Step 3: Construction Financing with Our Easy Build Program

CMS Homes LLC takes the burden of obtaining a new construction loan out of the process with our Easy Build Program.

    • You provide 10% of the project cost in cash or lot equity (value of the lot minus your lot loan).
    • Your lot is conveyed to CMS Homes LLC and your equity in the lot can be part of or all of the 10% deposit required.
    • The Easy Build Program requires a satisfactory pre-construction appraisal of the lot and home and a lender’s commitment to your permanent financing when the home is complete.
Step 4: Visit Your Homesite

The purpose of this visit is to determine if any site conditions exist that could impact the cost of construction and where your new home will be placed on the homesite. These site conditions can include:

    • Tree removal
    • Soil removal or fill or unusual soil conditions (i.e., rock, sand, clay soils, etc.)
    • A flood plain on your lot or land requiring special approvals
    • Drainage issues
    • Utility locations and distance to home location
    • Utility tap fees
    • Topography, which may or may not allow for a walkout basement, or it may require the garage to be on a certain side of home
    • Other factors that can affect the project’s scope and price
Step 5: Explanation of Warranty

Explanation of the warranty often occurs during one of the previous steps, but we want to be sure you understand our third-party 10-year limited warranty, which includes:

    • 1-year materials and workmanship
    • 2 years on home delivery systems
    • 10 years structural
    • What is and isn’t covered is detailed in the New Home Warranty Booklet. [link to booklet]
Step 6: Make Materials Selections and Finalize Design
During this step, you and our in-house home designer will put the home design and build specifications into a workable set of construction drawings. While that process moves forward, we also work with you on making materials selections, such as flooring, cabinetry, countertops, tile, and fixtures. Depending on your selections, you may need to visit a few of our vendors.
Step 7: Build Agreement
Now that we have the design and option details and know which allowances are needed for site conditions, we are ready to put all the details in writing. This will include your build specification, option pricing, and allowances.
Step 8: Meet Your Project Manager
At this point, your materials selections and home design are complete, and construction drawings have been generated. Now it’s time to meet the builder. In this meeting, the builder will go over your plans and build specifications to make sure everyone is on the same page regarding what is going into your home. The builder will also explain how the process unfolds and what you can expect.
Step 9: Release of Loan, Build Documents, Waivers & Deposit

You’re almost to the final step! We just need the following documents for your new home build to be “released to start” (our Closing Coordinator will help you with all the paperwork):

    • Loan commitment from your end loan lender
    • Sign off on all build documents and specifications
    • Sign waiver of any remaining contingencies
    • Make a deposit if required
    • Once those items are received, your new home project will be placed on our Ready to Start list.
    • Homes are started in the order in which they were put on that list.
Step 10: The Build

Here’s the really exciting step! The builder gets started and within a few months, you will have a new home. This is how the home-building project flows:

    • Prepare construction site and pour foundation
    • Construct rough framing (shell)
    • Complete rough plumbing, electrical, and HVAC
    • Install insulation
    • Complete drywall and interior textures; start exterior finishes
    • Finish interior trim; install exterior driveways and walkways
    • Install hard-surface flooring and countertops and complete exterior grading
    • Finish mechanical trims; install bathroom fixtures
    • Install mirrors and shower doors, finish flooring, and complete exterior landscaping
    • Final walkthrough with the builder

That’s it! Get ready to move in and live in the house of your dreams for many years to come.
