What is your home building process?

What makes Sekas Homes a green building company?

What occurs during home closing?
When you’re closing on a home with Sekas Homes, we will guide you through every step of the process from final walkthrough to handing over the keys to your new custom home.
Do I need a new construction loan?
New construction loans are only necessary when the homeowner owns the lot rather than Sekas Homes. When a new construction loan is required, our team can assist you by helping secure loans through our preferred lenders.
When do I make design selections for my home?
After all of the structural designs have been made for your home, such as the room dimensions, window and door locations, etc., we will start the process of selecting all of the finishing touches of your home. This includes the flooring, countertops, cabinets, fixtures, and more.
What can I expect during my first design meeting?
One of the most important aspects of designing a custom home is the initial design meeting between you and the team that will be working on your home. Many things happen during this first meeting, including setting up a construction timeline, going over the basic building and design structure, and more!
Do you have first floor master bedroom plans?
Although none of our standard plans feature a first floor master bedroom, as a custom builder, we’re able to modify our designs to best suit your lifestyle and needs. So, if you want or need a first floor master bedroom, our design team can make it happen.
