OUR CUSTOM HOME DIVISION
Viegas Homes is the JVASCO custom homes division. We believe in a professional approach to building custom homes. We are professionals and skilled craftsmen who specialize in meeting the housing needs of other professionals. The term “Custom” is used very loosely in the business of home building, but this service is rarely provided. Jeff Viegas, owner of JVASCO and Viegas Homes, believes that customers building a Custom Home should get just that, a true “Custom Home”. At Viegas Homes, we define “Custom Home” as the following:
1. Client, Builder, and Architect/Engineer all meet together to layout and design a plan that specifically addresses your family’s desires. Our goal is to design exactly what you want, without exception.
2. Client and Builder meet during the design phase to determine the financial issues surrounding the project. Our goal is to construct a residence that meets the budget requirements that have been defined by you.
3. Client and Building Manager meet weekly and communicate regularly to discuss and, or modify any construction process.
4. Client has flexibility (if so desired) to select every furnishing in the entire house – we have no “Standards” (i.e. paint colors, flooring, exterior finishes, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures, hardware, cabinets, electronics, appliances, windows, doors, etc.). Clients meet with our supplier’s professional design teams to choose exactly what they want in their home.
At this point you may be thinking, yes, all that sounds great but what kind of price is placed on such a “Custom” service like this?
Viegas Homes can offer this type of service at a cost less than other builders (Price per square foot comparisons) and the way we afford this is by the principle of keeping overhead cost down. We are a family of dedicated professionals who are committed to customer satisfaction. We are also true framing craftsmen. We frame your home from floor to roof, no subcontracting the wood structure of your home. We ARE builders. We don’t just oversee the construction of your home…WE BUILD YOUR HOME!
You will receive more attention and more time will be spent on your home with our approach, as compared to other builders. All this service and attention to detail at a price we make sure you can afford!
We build homes, we provide quality, and we insure satisfaction!
The Custom Build Process
Step 1: Initial Consultation
This initial meeting takes place at the JVASCO offices with the Client and the Client’s realtor. In this meeting we will:
- review your homesite location survey
- discuss initial design criteria - JVASCO client questionnaire
- review home plans/blueprints or discuss options to meet with an architect
- discuss a preliminary budget and/or budget concerns
- discuss client's interim and/or permanent financing
Step 2: Preliminary Proposal
After the initial meeting, a preliminary proposal will be developed and a second meeting will take place to go over details of the proposal.
- based on initial consultation, we will provide a preliminary estimate for your home with specification breakdown
- actual pricing can not be given until actual home plan is selected and drawn by architect and/or engineer
- This is designed to give you insight into JVASCO's pricing
