THE CANYON
DESIGN/BUILD PROCESS

#1 CONCEPTUAL PHASE

We balance form and function in architecture and building, working with you to determine your needs and aesthetic. This phase includes initial site selection, budget, and timeline planning.

#3 ELEVATIONS &
FLOOR PLANS

We exchange ideas, images, and floor plans to create a detailed design program. Your feedback helps us understand your lifestyle and aesthetic, guiding us through site selection, budget, and timeline.

#4 DESIGN/BUILD CONTRACT

To protect all parties, we enter a clear design-build contract, including your design program, location, budget, timeline, and architect details.
A deposit secures your lot, retains the architect, and starts the design process.

 #7 CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT, PERMITTING & FINANCE

Once your home is designed, we develop a detailed budget and final price with unmatched transparency. By pricing after the plans are complete, we avoid overcharging and ensure the project stays within budget. If costs are too high, we adjust plans before contracting. This unique Canyon process guarantees satisfaction. Once the plans and budget are perfect, we execute a contract and obtain permits and financing, then we're ready to build!

#2 FINANCING

Now that we understand your vision, it's time to plan financing. We offer excellent resources and options, including our own financing, making custom home ownership easy and cost-effective.

#4 ARCHITECT SELECTION

We assist in selecting an architect, balancing form, function, construction knowledge, and sustainability. Canyon leverages relationships to deliver custom architecture within your budget. We review portfolios, facilitate meetings, and ensure a professional and personal match.

#6 DESIGN PHASE

With our team assembled, the architect leads the design while Canyon ensures your vision. Communication is key. You'll participate in design sessions, guiding decisions and shaping the project from start to finish.

#8 CONSTRUCTION PHASE

It's time to turn your dream into reality. You'll receive a detailed schedule and allowances for selecting finish materials. Our team guides you on what to select and when. We source high-quality materials at the best prices, with you in charge of final decisions.
During construction, we keep you informed every step of the way, ensuring no surprises. Change orders and special selections are welcome, with a simple process to keep you updated on the budget.
