Building a home is one of the biggest endeavors you’ll probably ever take on. So how do you decide who gets to build it? Should you start with the design, then shop around for bids? Do your own design, and find a contractor? Have it professionally designed, but try to build part of it yourself? While those options may work for some people, we firmly believe a design build firm is the best way to achieve your perfect home in a seamless fashion. Here are 5 reasons to trust a design build company with your new home.
If you work with a separate design company and general contractor, there’s a chance the architects may design something your general contractor may not be able to build. That will cause delays and revisions. A design build firm has its architects and general contractors under the same roof, which means they can collaborate throughout the process. No surprises, no delays.
Sometimes, in a design-bid-build process, designers and builders may miscommunicate or even bicker, and the homeowner gets caught in the middle. Having the designers and builders all working together means that they will all be on the same page. That gives them more time to communicate with you throughout the process, to keep everything running smoothly.
Not only does a more efficient process mean less stress, but cutting down on delays cuts down on costs. Every hour of labor, material and time you save adds up — especially if you
There’s already a process
Instead of working with several independently operating companies and trying to create a process from scratch, design build firms like TailorCraft already have a tried-and-true process in place. At TailorCraft, it starts with the conceptual design, pre-construction commitment to find the right materials before the job even starts, and then the construction.

Not only does a more efficient process equal cost savings and fewer headaches, ultimately this leads to a higher-quality finished product. You want your house to be a home, and you want it to last for generations. That’s why it’s important to get it right the first time.
