Our Custom Home Building Process

  • Choosing the location for your new home

    We know where your house is located is just as important as your house itself. As an Edwardsville custom home builder, Lantz Homes can build your new home on a property of your choosing, or we can make the process easier by securing you an ideal lot in one of the most sought-after premier developments in Edwardsville such as Hawthorne Hills.

  • Outline interests, objectives, and requirements

    Lantz Homes will meet one-on-one with you to discover the features and amenities you imagine in your dream home. Need a gourmet kitchen that fits your flair for entertaining? Want the ultimate home theater where you can catch the Cards and Blues on the big screen? When we know what you’re most passionate about, we can determine if it’s best to modify a current floor plan or to start your design from scratch.

  • Purchase and feasibility consultation

    Every construction site comes with its own limitations, which may require modifications to your home design. Once you sign a pre-construction agreement, we’ll meet with you at your lot for a thorough site inspection. We’ll survey and study all aspects of your chosen property, including utility availability, surrounding terrain, and if necessary, Homeowners Association guidelines, to avoid or eliminate any issues that could affect the integrity of your home today and in the future.

  • Architectural planning

    A custom home plan is only as good as the architect that designs it. That’s why we work with the best architects and engineers in the Edwardsville area! Using your requirements and our recommendations, they’ll lay out the blueprints that bring your dream one step closer to reality. And together with you, we’ll work with them on any adjustments and changes to ensure what they design is what you always pictured.

  • Project budgeting

    Even when it comes to a luxury home build, you’re still watching every dollar you spend. Before breaking ground on your new home, we itemize each detail in your design estimate to ensure the final proposal matches perfectly with your specific budget. In addition, we plan accordingly for the unexpected to keep surprise costs from stealing dollars away from the features you want most.

  • Specifications and selections

    Now’s where the fun really begins! Let your personality shine through with the interior and exterior details that truly make a house a home. Our experts will help you select all the finishing touches – from siding and shutters to cabinets and countertops – that suit your unique taste and your specific budget.

  • Construction starts

    For any new homeowner, groundbreaking is the kickoff to an exciting process. Lantz Homes eases your anxiety by keeping you in the loop at every stage of your home build. Through our project manager, you can check on the status of each step, from excavation through framing, and be clearly informed about any issues or delays the moment they pop up.
