Custom Home Building with Falcon Development

When you choose to build with Falcon Devlopment, you can be confident that you are hiring a licensed general contractor that is honest, listens to your wants and needs, and will treat your custom home build as if it was our own. Whether you are building your first home or your fifth, you can be sure that Falcon Development will be with you at every step along the way. 


Decide where you want to build your home. Still searching for land? That's okay. We can look at the information on the properties you're considering to help you choose the one right for you.


Proper planning and preperation is the key to any successful custom home build.  Review our website, facebook page, and other vendors locations. Speak with our previous customers and tour one of our existing projects. 


Once you have a plan, it’s time to create a budget. We know every dollar counts, which is why our our team will work with you to help create a home you love, within your budget. You’ll also get a completly transparent costing budget. Every dollar that is spent on your custom home construction will be detailed and accounted for. We operate on a cost plus a set fee, so no worries about being nickled and dimed to death. A lot of time is put into the front end budget planning, giving you peace of mind that the cost to construct your custom home is accurate.

Land: The price of the property

House: The cost to build your home from the ground up

Site: Costs associated with preparing your land for building including lot clearing, water wells, power, etc.


Falcon Development works with many architecture firms and draftsman to help you create the perfect home design.  This is the time when you need to think through how your family will use this home and what is important to you. Make sure you communicate these ideas and wishes to your design firm. 


We will build your home on a cost plus a set fee contract.  We will develop your budget based on your selections and finish schedule. Our fee will not change throughout the project and our online construction management software will keep you informed 24/7 on the running budget.  Overages and underages will be displayed clearly and accurately within our online customer portal.  


After you’ve selected your home and customized it to your life, it’s time to sign a contract. Here’s where you’ll review and approve drawings and begin planning for construction, including determining timelines, requesting permits, and preparing the land for building your home.


Before construction can begin on your home, there are a few necessary items that need to be completed. Some sites require clearing or grading before anything can happen. Soil tests, surveying and plot plans, as well as permits are just a few of the things that need to be addressed before construction begins. Our experienced team members will provide our customers with the information they need to understand the entire process and each phase of construction.


Once everything is prepared, it’s time to break ground! Once construction begins, you will be in constant communication with the Falcon team. While you may not always see activity at your home site, you can be sure that there is always something being worked on in the overall build of your home. Below is a basic outline showing the order of progress for building your new home.



Rough Plumbing, Electrical, Heating and Cooling

Insulation and Drywall

Finish Carpentry, Painting and Staining

When construction is completed, we will walk you through your new home and identify and complete any punch list items.


Just because we’re finished building your home does not mean you are on your own. Each Falcon home is provided with a limited warranty that will be presented to you prior to contract signing.
