CUSTOM HOME CONSTRUCTION
Our approach to Custom Home construction focuses on making the home building experience enjoyable while achieving superior quality in all aspects of construction.
We will guide you through custom home construction design and the building process with all the information required to make concise and informed decisions.
At CreekStone Custom Homes, we believe that “Quality Craftsmanship is in the Details.” We believe so strongly in this philosophy, that Jerry Severa, Owner and Master Builder, uses a “Hands-On” approach for every custom home we build. While most builders delegate critical work to design teams and foremen, we are present at the home sites daily in order to work with our team and tradesmen ensuring quality control.
CreekStone Custom Homes are designed and built with the highest level of architectural talent, personalized service and top-of-the-line building materials. You’ll notice our innovative designs are elegant and stylish, yet comfortable and functional. We aim to exceed your expectations every time!
Our craftsman-inspired philosophy is what distinguishes a CreekStone Custom Home. We cater to the individual needs of our clients and consistently produce a higher quality home for their investment.
With every custom home construction project, we build teams based on the vision and goals of the owners, architect and builder. As our clients’ dedicated contracting firm and builder we draw from a select group of professionals – carpenters, superintendents, and field staff – to form the core team. To that we add the required expertise of our considerable network of trusted vendors, suppliers and independent craftspeople.
CreekStone Custom Home’s involvement starts long before construction begins. Working with the client, architect and other members of the project team we look at preliminary plans and discuss the vision and objectives for each custom home construction project. By participating early in the design process, our vast knowledge and experience help lay a strong foundation for a successful project, including lot inspections, construction methods, materials research, resource allocation, process planning, pricing and scheduling.
Custom Home Construction management begins with budgeting and project scheduling. During the pre-construction phase we develop the budgets, prepare schedules and evaluate design options with the owners so they can provide input and be prepared for the choices they need to make along the way. We provide assistance with material and design selections, budgeting and quality control. Our implementation procedures include daily on-site management, direct involvement from day one through delivery and quality control procedures. Clear and timely communication keeps the entire team well-informed throughout the process. This also ensures that everyone has the same expectations about the work and critical milestones ahead.
CreekStone Custom Homes has the honor of building many of North Atlanta’s most distinguished custom residences. Our experience has taught us that even the most finely crafted structures require regular maintenance. The CreekStone Residential Service Team provides the ready resources, craftsmanship and care required to preserve the architectural integrity and comfort of our client’s exceptional homes.
CreekStone Custom Homes Process
The construction of our architecturally, exceptional homes starts with developing a unified plan that encompasses the client’s vision. This dynamic plan defines the design and construction goals, parameters, expertise and talent. It involves seeing the big picture as well as having an eye for the finest details. “Quality Craftsmanship is in the Details” is our company motto which is our benchmark for building a home to last a lifetime. CreekStone’s breadth of knowledge, depth of skill and our comprehensive approach allow us to execute the most complex and sophisticated custom home construction project with confidence.
Our Construction Process
For a successful project, Jerry Severa, Owner/Contractor for CreekStone Custom Homes, will meet with you to discuss your vision, individual design/style preferences and to establish preliminary budgets. If you have already preselected an architect, we will gladly meet them to discuss your project objectives and budgets. Once your blueprints are completed, we will evaluate the drawings to insure that your design objectives and budgets are achieved.
We will inspect your prospective lot(s) for design and building considerations including: footprint placement of the home, driveway, pool etc. Our lot evaluations include considerations for view enhancement, erosion control, and low-impact site development and preparation practices that protect mature trees and help preserve the natural aesthetics of the landscape.
Once the final architectural plan (blueprints) and the desired lot has been selected, we will prepare a final proposal/contract for your approval to start construction.
Loan approvals are secured and CreekStone Custom Homes purchases required building permits.
Jerry Severa, Owner/Contractor for CreekStone Custom Homes, will meet with you to review the construction process on site to discuss construction requirements, answer questions and review scheduling. We will review each component of the plan with you to insure that you understand each step of the building process.
Your lot is cleared and the home footprint is staked by our surveyor. Foundation forms are poured.
We pride ourselves in keeping you informed throughout the construction phase so you are aware of construction progress at all times. Some conversations may simply be by phone or we will meet with you on site to review specific items in progress. On site meetings include, but are not limited to, site layout, framing, electrical, exterior finishes, cabinet installation and hard surfaces meetings.
After the final inspection and delivery of your finished home, our post construction procedures include 30- and 90-day follow-ups, an 11-month final inspection, and punch-list management. It is our goal to insure that you are 100% satisfied with your CreekStone Custom Home!
“When we first moved to Georgia we were unfamiliar with the local builders and unsure of who to trust. We found the neighborhood we wanted to be in and luckily the house we fell in love with was built by Jerry Severa. After talking with Jerry, we knew right away he was an honest person who takes pride in his work. He cares about his customers and keeps their best interest in mind. If anyone is looking for a reputable builder who cares about quality and details, we would highly recommend CreekStone Custom Homes!”
“We could not possibly be more pleased with our experience with Jerry Severa and CreekStone Custom Homes. We recommend him and his organization without reservation, and we hope to build with him again in the future. Jerry and his team operate with the highest degree of integrity, and the level of craftsmanship is second to none. Our experience with Jerry is testimony to the fact that he builds as if he is building a home for his own family — there are no shortcuts in integrity, quality, or communication — all of which are vital to the building process. And the commitment doesn’t stop there: after being in our home for several months and encountering a few follow-up needs, Jerry has always been immediate in his response and resolution — including items reaching beyond the scope of the physical structure. We have recommended CreekStone Custom Homes to friends and neighbors, all whom have had an equally positive experience. In a day and time when many have compromised in their level of character and commitment, Jerry Severa and CreekStone Custom Homes have held firm to their core value of “quality craftsmanship in every detail”, and it doesn’t stop with just the bricks and mortar.”
“When we considered building a custom home, we interviewed five builders. It turned out that Jerry did some work for one of my colleagues who spoke very highly of the quality of work performed. We were also impressed with Jerry’s portfolio of work and consistent theme in the testimonials regarding quality, pride, and service. The choice was easy. In the concept stage, Jerry quickly arranged architectural design through his designer to meet all of our special needs (including an indoor pool/spa) and the quotation process went smoothly. We set a schedule that met our relocation demands and engaged in a contract. Jerry’s track record is strong and his financial standing is excellent. Although our bank had not worked with Jerry in the past, there were no roadblocks in securing the financing. As construction began, we quickly picked up on Jerry’s strength and that is working with the contractors. He has a way with getting the best out of the troops and his attention to detail and quality is second to none. Even with some challenges on inspections and bad winter weather, Jerry was able to coordinate the trades to make up lost time and meet our end date on the project without compromising on quality. In the end, the home is exactly what we had imagined and there were no significant surprises along the way. If you are considering Jerry for a custom home, you found a builder you can trust. Be ready for lots of detailed work designing and choosing your finishings, but if you are not ready for that then “custom” may not be the right direction for you. We love our new custom home. Thanks Jerry!”
