With Foundation Homes’ Semi-Custom Build Program, we have created a team to assist you along every step of your build.
#3 Commit to Plan & Locate Your Lot
Once you have found a home or floor plan that you love, your Specialist will create a Purchase Agreement to secure your pricing and get the building process started! A deposit to the builder will be required at this point. Now, it’s time to find your perfect lot. We are happy to share what we have in our inventory of land, review lots listed for sale in the MLS or work with you to ready the lot you already own. Remember, we build in all surrounding counties! Don’t forget to ask us about some hidden treasures – new lot opportunities come our way daily!

Select your flooring, tile, counter tops, light fixtures, roofing, siding —even your shutters and front door color! This is the fun part where you get to make your home your own! It’s also time for you to be introduced to your very own private portal for Foundations’ on-line building and warranty management system – BuilderTrend.

#7 Pre-Settlement Demonstration & Walk-through
Prior to your demonstration and walk-through, your home will be checked via Foundations’ 100-point quality control system to be sure that you are delivered a top-quality home. Then, your Foundation Homes’ Warranty Specialist will meet you before your closing date to walk through the home with you and make sure it is completely move-in ready. At this time, you will also be trained on how to use all systems within the house. We want you to feel comfortable with every part of your new home when you receive the keys! Remember, there will still be required processes at this point and there is still approximately a week and a half before the actual closing can take place.
#8 Move-in Day
Move-in day means the keys are now yours! You will sign the final papers that release the home into your hands. Don’t worry though, Foundation will still be there for you. Long after the moving trucks have pulled away, our warranty system will keep your home covered and protected. Foundation’s warranty is matchless in the market, and you can be fully confident that we will be there to take care of you and your family.
