CRAFTED is a premium custom home builder in the Houston, Texas market. We are experienced in completing projects in a wide range of styles, and we partner with the top architects and designers in the area.
What sets us apart is our PROCESS. Successful construction projects and happy customers happen when a builder is organized and has a repeatable process!
CRAFTED custom home projects are accomplished in three phases:
I. COLLABORATION PHASE
The Pre-Construction Services (PCSA) period is the most important phase of creating your dream. Homeowners can find themselves disappointed when they meet with an architect to create a beautiful design and then get sticker shock at what their project will cost to build. Instead, CRAFTED guides you through the design process from the beginning; facilitating communication between the architect, interior designer, vendors, and tradespeople to make sure your project stays on target and within your budget.
We are a Fixed-Sum builder, which means that once you sign your contract with CRAFTED, unless you decide to add work or make changes, your price will not increase. Some builders work on a Cost-Plus basis, which may sound attractive at first, but leaves homeowners on the hook for any cost overruns.
The budget for your project is driven by the decisions you will make during this phase. This is the time when you’ll work with our team to design your new home, addition, or remodel and make selections on finishes such as flooring, tile, countertops, paint, cabinets. We will get bids from each subcontractor and vendor to show you how your choices impact the bottom line.
This phase is wrapped up once you and our team have settled on a clearly defined scope of work, a target construction timeline, and a fixed price for your project. At this point, the construction contract is signed, and work can begin!
II. CONSTRUCTION PHASE
Plans are printed, permits are obtained, and interior design is complete. Our design team will now hand your vision off to our experienced project management team. Your dedicated Project Manager will take the plans and specifications developed during the PCSA phase and bring your dream to life with the help our in-house staff and our trusted network of trades.
You will receive a login to our comprehensive project management software, which will serve as the communication hub for your project. Photos, job logs, schedule updates and more are posted daily for your review. You are also kept in the loop via regularly scheduled site meetings and walk-throughs with your Project Manager and Designer as the project progresses.
III. CONTINUING RELATIONSHIP
Once your project is complete, we continue our relationship with you and your home through the warranty period and beyond. You can rest assured knowing that issues that may arise after you settle in to your new space will be promptly addressed by our warranty team. We stand behind the work we do and know we will be delighted with your new home long after move-in.
We want you to call us for your next project. Ask us to service your water heater. Refer your friends. Invite us over for coffee! We don’t want to stop seeing you just because the punch list is complete.
We also offer Home Maintenance contracts. The same people who built or renovated your home can make sure it is taken care of properly for years to come!
