Tour & Design


Meet with Builder, Chris Coblentz. Take a tour through our model homes. We will explain all the standard features that are in our homes.

After our tour we can sit down for a design conference. This is a no obligation meeting to discuss the expectations and desires you have for your new home. Some of the things discussed in the design conference are lifestyle requirements, architectural styles, budget constraints, options, and site considerations. It’s helpful to bring ideas of floor plans, exteriors and options you have seen and liked. Our final objective at this meeting is to have a clear direction of the style, floor plan and options you are looking for in your new home. We have 40 stock plans to choose from!

At this meeting we will talk about choosing a building site. Coblentz Homes offers a “No Fee Building Site Evaluation”.

Estimate & Preliminary Design


After the initial first meeting we provide you with a cost estimate based on the plans and options reviewed in our first meeting.  Although this will be a rough estimate, it usually is within 2-3% of the contract price, not including additional upgrades.

At this stage we will start the preliminary design phase. Coblentz Homes uses a professional residential design & drafting firm, Design Visions. This insures your plans are designed to be of the highest quality and structurally sound. In business since 1983, Design Visions plan designs have won countless awards through the years!

For the preliminary design phase, Coblentz Homes will take the chosen floor plan and ideas to Design Visions for preliminary plans. To get this started, there is a small design fee.


Review Preliminary Plans, Financing & Contract


Within 7-14 days we will have a set of to scale floor plans for your new home. This is a very exciting time! We will meet to discuss a design review to make additional changes as needed. Once plans are set, Coblentz Homes will work to finalize the price. We will review the construction agreement, specs, and sign all the documents as needed.
