Building your new home should be exciting and fun! It doesn't have to be a nightmare. We have simplified the building process for you. We take care of the headache so you don't have to!
What is involved
Building for some can be a very daunting task. Site selection, site preparation, foundation design, home design, government permitting, material selection, special amenities, labor management, inspections, HAVC selection, selecting fixtures, finishing and detailing are just some of the many tasks involved to complete your new home. Elite Development has simplified the process. We want to help you to choose the absolute best options for your style and budget, so your new home is everything you expected and more!
In the Beginning
Budget - Yes, that big "B" word. We will help you stay on track and still get the home you want with the comforts you desire. We have established relationships with several local banks to help with financing needs if needed.
Site Selection - We have many beautiful lots in great neighborhoods ready for construction. Location, school districts, site elevation, drainage, restrictions and re-sale potential are some of the many things to consider before purchasing a lot. We are more than happy to help you with this process.
Home Design - We work with Louisiana's top architects and designers, or we can work with your architect to design your new home. Choose from a wide variety of different floor plans from French Country, Mediterranean to more traditional styles. We can even work with your own plan and customize it just for you. Windows, doors, room sizes, roof pitches and ceiling heights can all be customized and rearranged to make it just right for you. We also help you design your new home, keeping in mind re-sale potential, livability, special amenities and style selection.
The Contract - Once all parties have decided on the site, home design and budget, we will prepare a written contract with the total price and specifications that we have agreed upon. This gives everyone peace of mind. All change orders will also have written estimates.
Building The Dream
Foundation - We know how to select the right foundation for your new home. Soil types, loads and weight distribution are all considered to ensure the foundation is as solid as a rock.
Framing - We use only the finest building materials in the construction of your new home. We use experienced and professional crews. We perform a series of inspections and checks systems to help eliminate costly mistakes. If the framing isn't square and true, your finished home will not be what you expected and trouble down the road can arise. We don't take shortcuts, so you know you will have a long lasting quality built home.
Fit and finish - We believe that attention to detail is essential to you being satisfied with the completion of your new home. Using top of the line paints, flooring, fixtures and materials make a big difference down the road. Our passion for detail gives your home a fit and finish that is simply beyond compare. Our past clients have been extremely happy and satisfied.
