Our Home Building Process

Thank you for your interest in working with Kartchner Homes! We’re excited that you’ve chosen us to build your dream home. Our process is proven to get your project off the ground as quickly as possible while meeting all your needs and expectations. We’ll be here every step of the way from beginning to completion to make sure you have a full understanding of what’s happening with your home. The following is our proven process for delivering you your dream home at an affordable price.


The first step in our process is to meet with you in person and discover any areas of dissatisfaction with your current home. By working together we’ll help you discover which of Kartchner’s unique floor plans, what included features, and which options will meet your needs. It might be that we have a quick move in available that you’ll love. Or maybe you’ll find a home you want to build in that perfect Kartchner Community.

The Agreement

You’ve decided that building your new home is the best option. After you’ve reviewed Kartchner’s Home plans, discovered the available lots, and determined your structural options, we’ll write up the agreement. After acceptance of the agreement, we’ll schedule your first appointment with our Design Center Specialist.

Selection and Review

Our trained Design Center Specialists will assist you in selecting all the options and materials for your new home. Our innovative Designers ensure the options and colors you choose from reflect current trends and styles. Quality product & inspired colors with your style!

Pre-Construction Meeting

The colors and options are selected. You’ve decided where all the outlets and light switches will be. All adjustments to the plan are complete. Our Pre-construction Meeting is the opportunity to sit down with the final plans and make sure everything is correct. You’ll also meet our Superintendent, who is responsible for your home. It all looks great? Let’s schedule our start date!


Since our Pre-Construction meeting, we’ve submitted for permits and the plans are approved. Our construction team is ready to start! As we build your home, you’ll be able to follow along using BuilderTrend, our online software and watch your home progress. Foundation, framing, dry-wall, interior finishes and then… we’re done!

The New Homeowner Orientation

Your new home is complete! Yay! Our Production Manager has completed a detailed inspection of your new home. Your home has been cleaned and prepared. The New Homeowner Orientation is your chance to walk through your home with our Superintendent, while they teach you how best to care for your brand new home. They will review the many important features and answer any questions you may have.

Move In Day

The day has come! Your home is ready. We’ve scheduled the closing with you and the title company. Once you finish with the title company, the keys are yours. Hooray!


From time to time, because of the nature of construction (imperfect materials and imperfect weather) there might be something that isn’t quite right. Rest easy, Kartchner Homes has an incredible warranty. Log in to our online software (BuilderTrend) and submit your concern. We’ll get right on it!
