Are you ready to launch your custom home project? Have you thought about what a Project Launch looks like for you?

Step 3 – Project Launch, is when you’ll start to see some new faces. In addition to the custom home specialists you’re already working with, you will be introduced to your dedicated Trailside Project Manager. Your PM is your advocate and will leverage years of custom homebuilding experience to seamlessly guide you through the build process. Your PM will ask a lot of questions to ensure our entire team is firmly aligned with your goals.

Questions To Ask Yourself

  • Have I thought through a scope and maximum budget?  Is my budget comprehensive to the entire project?
  • How important is it to have a detailed schedule and fixed budget for my project?
  • What type of custom construction arrangement will I be the most comfortable with? Cost Plus? Fixed price with allowances or exclusions? Fee Build? Fixed Priced?
  • Am I partnered with a top-notch custom home lender?

  • Early on in the process, your Project Manager will work tirelessly with you to specify every detail of your custom home project, so there are no surprises.
