New Home Building Checklist:

1. Purchase Land

The first step in building your dream home is to purchase a piece of land to build on. Before purchasing a vacant lot, it is important to do some research:

  • First, consider the community that you would like to live in or near.
  • Take into consideration the accessibility and cost of electricity, plumbing and other utilities on that plot of land.
  • Contact your county office or Homeowner’s Association to familiarize yourself with the zoning and ordinance laws pertaining to your land as well as the required permits.

2. Consult Ken Broadwater Homes

Here is where the process begins. Schedule a consultation with us to discuss your needs and expectations. You will also learn more about our license and building reputation, insurance policies, and our years of experience in Central Virginia.  

3. Decide on an initial home plan design

Work with Ken and Laura on a preliminary design for your new home. This can be based on pre-existing plans for ranchers, cape cods, and two story homes, or customized based on your individual request. With Ken Broadwater Homes as your home builder, we can design your dream home and discuss the cost and build time based on that design

4.  Agree on a fixed-price contract

We will ensure that your contract is set to a fixed price. This protects you from unexpected costs or hidden fees that you might typically find with an inexperienced contractor or dishonest builders. A fixed-priced contract of transparency ensures your peace of mind.

5. Building your home

We will carry out the construction process based on the signed contract, keeping you updated along the way. We do everything from knocking down the trees to handing you the keys. Ken Broadwater homes is equipt to do the clearing, the driveway, well, septic, or county or city water hook-ups, as well as file for all permits and get the electrical services started.
