Our Design Process
Our in-house architects and interior designers begin the Design process by sitting down with you to discuss your new custom home and the features you desire for your luxurious one-of-a-kind custom home. The designers will discuss the floor plan and general relationship of spaces; the interior finishes and luxury features; the outdoor living with spacious terraces, summer kitchen and poolscape. Our architects, who specialize in luxury custom home design, will ask questions such as, Do you do a lot of entertaining? Do you enjoy theater sitting for movie watching? Are the outdoor living spaces a high priority?
Once our architects and interior designers understand your needs and wants for your new custom home, we will begin the preliminary design process. First, we will create a preliminary floor plan and site plan for your consideration and feedback. This preliminary process represents a large portion of the creative design time to create a customized, thoughtful plan and may require as much as 8-10 weeks. Once the preliminary plans are tweaked, based on your feedback, our architects begin more extensive design development utilizing CAD and Revit including 3D drawings.
Meanwhile, our architects will be preparing a very comprehensive set of detailed construction specifications, calling out the materials, methods and construction techniques for your new custom home. At the same time, our interior designers will prepare a comprehensive selections package for your review, inclusive of all selections such as hardware, plumbing, lighting, tile and appliances, along with model numbers and descriptions of your selections and finishes for your luxurious new custom home. Designers will also prepare color vignettes of all custom finishes and selections room-by-room to give you a visual sense of how the interiors will look.
All of this custom design process takes place within the first 60-75 days of design. During this time, our custom builder team will begin analyzing cost based on the preliminary custom floor plans, detailed preliminary specifications and preliminary luxury finishes and selections. Working with our architects and interior designers, our custom builder team will provide an on-target cost estimate well before construction begins and provide cost updates as the plans, specifications and finishes continue to evolve during our custom home design process. You will be well informed about the cost of your new luxury custom home well before construction begins.
The entire creative process requires anywhere from 6 to 8 months, depending on how extensive the level of customization and the scope of project.
We chose Jauregui not only for the high level of detail and quality that is evident in your work, but also for your unique process of creating a custom home that truly sets you apart from other builders.
