We do quite a few design/build projects, but we often have clients that aren’t comfortable with designing a custom home from scratch because they want to be able to actually see the spaces beforehand. Not everyone is comfortable assessing what a space will be like from a blue print, or even a 3-D rendering.
One solution that has worked well for many of our clients is to visit several of our homes and talk about spaces they like, how they may like to change or reorient certain spaces, etc. For example, we recently had a couple that really liked our Chukar Butte 4 car garage floor plan. They have two daughters and really wanted a Jack and Jill bath for them. The standard floor plan has a second master suite and they didn’t want one daughter feeling the other had a better room with her own bathroom. Other than that, the floor plan is perfect for them. Very simple solution, we are reorienting things a bit to add a Jack and Jill bathroom with each girl having her own vanity on her side of the bathroom, and a shared tub/shower and toilet area. Where a full hall bath was will become a powder bath for guest use.
We are currently working with two other clients that are making some modifications to our popular Grouse Valley floor plan to make it ideal for their families. Being able to actually stand in the various rooms of the home and talk about the way their families live and use spaces makes it a very natural, easy process. We are very involved in the process and are there to answer questions about costs, load bearing walls, truss changes, etc., so the client is aware of the options and costs, and what may or may not be feasible.
Such personal attention is one of the advantages of working with a boutique builder like Pacific Coast Construction Group, Inc.
