You’ve probably been thinking about your custom home for years. Now comes the excitement of putting those thoughts into action. It’s a momentous time for creating a home that will be a legacy for you, your family and your new community.



Pay close attention and your homesite will guide you. It will let you know where to place your home, where to position it for the best views. Where windows will give you spectacular sunsets or sunrises. The direction of the breeze may show the perfect spot for your patio. What makes for the most dramatic entrance, the most peaceful spot for a quiet reading nook? Take photos of the site at different times of the day, angles and distances. You can use elevation changes to naturally create views, minimize earthwork, and to place the home where it naturally belongs. Exploring your homesite will give you direction.



A collaborative effort between you, your architect and builder is essential to the Verrado vision. Although you have a lot of flexibility, Verrado has developed design criteria to ensure that all of the homes and landscaping in the community are authentic in their design. You also want to select partners with whom you can work well over the span of the project, which could be up to two years. While you’re free to hire your own qualified architect or builder, Verrado offers another option with our Artisan Build Program – an elite network of custom homebuilders selected for their commitment and expertise to work with our custom homeowners. Whether you choose to seek a builder on your own or select an Artisan Builder, evaluate potential builders. Visit the homes they’ve built. Get price estimates and consider the products they use.
