the caliber process

Hear from custom home clients: Kolby and Rebecca Jones

We are a team of leading professionals consisting of contractors, design consultants and preferred trade partners. Our team works together to coordinate and execute every detail of each custom home we build.

Our goal is to provide each client with an enjoyable homebuilding experience, resulting in a beautifully designed and exceptionally built home that is reflective of them and their lifestyle.



In the planning and design stage of building a custom home, our objective is to develop a relationship and partnership with our clients. Through discovery sessions, we strive to understand the client’s lifestyle, design preferences and how they want their new home to ideally function. With this in mind, we execute design and functionality that is entirely personal to the client.

The Caliber team works with our clients to establish a budget and timeline that is both realistic and competitive. Once the budget and timeline are set, we work diligently to maintain it. Through the practice of frequent and honest communication between builder and client, we’re able to ensure we all are moving toward the same goals.

The client meets with our design consultant before construction even begins. She guides them through finish, fixture and design selections to accomplish their vision for their home. Once these decisions are made, the client can relax and watch their dream home become a reality.

We have proven procedures in place that intercept many potential hiccups during construction, however, the building process will not be completely free of challenges.  When issues do arise, we work creatively to address and remedy them as quickly as possible.

We hold to our principal of exceptional quality from beginning to end and proudly stand behind the construction of our homes.

It would be our privileged to partner with you make your dream home a reality.
