Selection of Plan and Lot:

The first step is determining the plan and lot you are most interested in.   This decision goes hand in hand since certain plans are only allowed on certain lots.   Even if a plan fits, it may not be allowed because adjacent homes are the same plan.    If you choose a plan, it will show the available lots.  If you choose a lot, it will show the available plans   Go the plat page (Click to see interactive Highland Ridge Plat) (Click to see interactive Legacy Grove Plat) or the plan page (Click for Highland Ridge Plans) (Click for Legacy Grove Plans).  Once you have selected a lot and plan, our home designer will perform a detailed review to make sure the plan will fit and that the surrounding homes are not the identical plan and elevation.  Even it if is the same plan, the plan designer may be able to modify the elevation of the home to allow it to go on a lot.

Highland Ridge Phase 2 has a large number of lots that do not directly back up to another home.    Many of the lots back up to a lake, undeveloped area, or retention area.   These lots will have a premium.    The last phase of Legacy Grove will also have a large number of lots that back up to lakes or undeveloped areas.

Interior Selections Process:

The Selections Coordinator will work closely with you to assist in making decisions regarding the interior of your home. This includes selecting flooring, tile, cabinet colors, cabinet hardware, countertops, and paint. We understand that making numerous decisions can be overwhelming, which is why our Selections Coordinator will guide you through each step of the process.

Exterior Selections Process:

As part of the LPH homebuilding process, you will have the opportunity to choose the brick, mortar, and vinyl colors for your new home. We understand that it can be challenging to envision how these selections will come together when only looking at small samples and product boards. That's why we recommend taking inspiration from our completed homes to get a better idea of how your exterior selections will look.  Our Selections Coordinator will be there to guide you through the process and help you make choices that will complement the overall design of your home. 

Presale Appointment:

To begin the process of constructing your dream home, we invite you to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced sales team members. This initial meeting is expected to last approximately two hours and will involve a comprehensive review of the various options available for your new home, both inside and out.

During this meeting, our on-site salesperson will guide you through the selection process, providing detailed information on interior and exterior choices. A customized worksheet will be created to document the desired options (or maybe's) you are considering. This worksheet will serve as a valuable tool for you to review at home, allowing you to make final decisions that align with your budget.

Additional Information:

Building Presales with Supply Chain Constraints:

Each builder is approaching the supply chain constraints differently.   Our approach is to start presales very quickly which requires all selections to be made at the time of contract.   Selections that need to be ordered will be once the contract is signed.  However, it is possible that a given selection may become unavailable (yes it can happen).  If it does, our designers reserve the right to substitute a similar product.  Between optimizing our build sequence and minimizing the wait on the material, it allows us to build your home in an approximately 4 to 5-month time period.   This offers significant advantages of being able to lock in your interest rate quicker, move into your home quicker, and helps avoid those nasty escalation clauses.    Likewise, as a builder, it helps us minimize risk because we are able to order material quicker and have less time for external forces to affect the supply chain.    However, if items must be substituted, both the builder and the client must be flexible and decisive in order to keep the build process on track.
