Building your dream home is an exciting journey, one that often involves making tweaks and changes along the way to ensure the final product truly reflects your vision. However, flexibility during the construction process comes with its own set of challenges and considerations. Our Director of Sales, Christine, sheds light on the intricacies of managing change orders and selection adjustments during the construction phase in our latest video.

Understanding Change Orders

Change orders are inevitable in any construction project. Perhaps you’ve chosen light fixtures for your kitchen island but upon seeing them installed, realize they don’t quite match the scale you had in mind. “Absolutely, we can change them out,” Christine assures. But she also emphasizes the implications of such changes. Adjusting your choices can affect not only the cost but also the timeline of your project. There could be delays due to the lead time needed for new products or the availability of subcontractors and vendors to make the adjustments.

The Domino Effect of Late Changes

Making changes too late in the construction process can set off a domino effect. As Christine points out, “There’s a whole host of things that domino effect when we make changes too late in the process.” This could mean more than just extended timelines—it might affect how other components of the home come together, potentially complicating what could have been a straightforward process.

Balancing Vision with Practicality

The primary goal of our team is to collaborate with you through any change orders and adjustments to ensure that you are building a home you will love for a lifetime. However, Christine highlights the importance of being mindful—mindful of the timeline, your budget, and the quality of the finished product. The key is to balance your vision with practical considerations, ensuring that adjustments enhance rather than hinder the creation of your home.

Final Thoughts

Flexibility in home construction is a powerful advantage, allowing personalization and adjustments to truly make a space your own. Watching Christine discuss these details reminds us of the importance of clear communication and understanding the procedures for implementing changes. This ensures a smooth and efficient building process, ultimately leading to a home that meets your expectations and brings you joy for years to come.
