  • Work with you to identify the perfect lot if you do not already have one lined up.
  • Finding the right lot in an ideal location is critical and we do not rush to start building on just any site – we use our expertise of the Highland Park, University Park, Preston Hollow and surrounding Dallas areas to ensure you are building in a premium area that will appreciate in value over time and will accommodate your vision.



  • Collaborate throughout several sessions and conversations to further understand your vision for the design, features and key elements of your home.
  • Transfer your ideas to paper by working with our architects to sketch out the initial design concept for both the exterior and interior.
  • Collectively develop the initial plans through several iterations until we have perfectly captured your vision.



  • After finalizing the plans, it’s time to start building. We will remain in constant communication to make selections for flooring, appliances, cabinetry and more.
  • You can expect to see us at the job site each and every day to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible and is tracking according to plan.
  • During the Build phase, we will continue to propose several new ideas and drawings versus what was included in the initial plans to offer a truly customized and flexible approach – we believe this is what differentiates us from others.



  • After construction is complete and your home has been furnished, we carefully inspect every inch and apply any finishing touches to ensure top-notch quality.
  • Following your complete satisfaction, it’s time to turn over the keys so you can move into your new home.
  • Unlike most design-build processes, the relationship does not end here as we will remain accessible for anything you might need.


We are recipients of numerous awards for the design and quality of our custom homes including being named one of Dallas' Best by D Magazine.
