Our Design Process
Step 1: Scheduling your Design Appointments
Upon signing your Structural Agreement, your New Home Specialist will work with you to schedule your two Design Studio visits – your First Design Appointment & your Authorize & Finalize Design Appointment.
Step 2: Preliminary Decisions
Soon after you sign your Structural Agreement with your New Home Specialist, you will receive a link to the Garman Builders Online Design Studio, powered by Envision. Here you can browse our collection of available options and finishes to prepare for your design appointments, without ever leaving your couch!
Step 3: First Design Appointment
During your First Design Appointment, you’ll work with your Design Specialist to create a color & finish palette that is completely unique to your home! This is typically the longest appointment, lasting around 4 hours, as we will be taking the time to clarify preliminary decisions and make many of the finish selections for your new home. Appointment Time: 4 hours
Step 4: Authorize & Finalize Design Appointment
At your Authorize & Finalize Design Appointment, your Design Specialist will work with you to complete any remaining selections for your new home. Once all personal selections and finishes have been chosen, you and your Design Specialist will then review your design decisions together, making any necessary adjustments and ensuring a full understanding of the selections you have made. Once happy with your choices, you will sign your Design Addendum and the Design Studio portion of your home buying process will be complete!
*It is incredibly important to be sure that ALL items on your Design Addendum are correct. Your new home will be built to these specifications. Any changes made after the Authorize & Finalize Design Appointment are subject to a Late Change Request fee and could possibly result in a delay of the construction schedule.*
Appointment Time: 2 hours for Signature Series Homes and Townhomes & Duplexes, 4 hours for Estate Series Homes
Step 5: We’ll take it From Here!
As soon as all of your personal selections and finishes have been confirmed and your Design Addendum is signed, our experts behind the scenes will begin ordering materials and scheduling construction of your new home!
