Once you know what kind of home you’re selecting, we begin the process. This consists of a back and forth with our designers and builders. They’ll take your specifications or design, work on it, improve on it and return it back to you for approval or feedback. Then it goes back to the designers and we continue the same process until we arrive at the perfect home. This can take up to three months. When we have that ready, we will estimate the home and move towards the contract.
After we finalize details, get the construction loan, and do the pre-construction on the field, we begin building.
You’re in on this process too!
First, when the frame is ready, you will come in and we’ll discuss ceiling designs, bathroom, or bedroom designs that may come up.
After the frame is built, we will call you back and tour the home for the electrical specifications. We’ll go room by room, interior and exterior, and finalize electrical lighting.
Next, when the electrical is in and before we do insulation, we do a third walkthrough to ensure everything is looking good. We’ll run through HVAC systems, electrical, and anything else that goes behind the walls. This is where you can ask questions and do final approvals.
After it’s all erected we will send in our detail crew to completely ensure the home is ready to close, you will come in and approve the final results.

ICON Home Custom Builder is proud to be a RESNET Energy Smart Builder and is committed to increasing the energy performance of the custom homes we build..
Outside of a mortgage loan, the highest cost of homeownership is energy. That’s why smart homebuyers ask for a home’s HERS Index Score to determine its energy efficiency before buying. The HERS Index Score is like an MPG (miles-per-gallon) sticker for homes. After all, it makes sense to know the energy performance of a home before making the investment.

With home energy costs skyrocketing, it only makes sense to find out how energy efficient a home really is. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that a home built to the 2004 International Energy Conservation Code uses 30% less energy than older homes. Many builders today are building homes that use 70% less energy than existing ones.
A home built to the 2004 International Energy Conservation Code is awarded a rating of 100 on the HERS Index. This is taken as the RESNET Reference Home. The lower a home rates, the more energy efficient it is. Therefore, a home with a rating of 70 on the HERS Index is 30% more efficient than the RESNET Reference Home. A rating of 130, however, is 30% less efficient than the RESNET Reference Home.
The RESNET HERS Index is the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. The HERS or Home Energy Rating System was developed by RESNET and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting, testing and calculating a home’s energy performance. Certified RESNET Home Energy Raters conduct inspections to verify a home’s energy efficiency and recommend improvements that can be made to increase it.
