8 Steps to Building Your New Thurman Home
1. Choosing Your Home
You have decided your next home will be a Thurman Home. First you will select a lot and floor plan. At Whisper Valley, Thurman Homes has pre-platted which home goes on each of our available lots. You will reserve the home and site that best meets your lifestyle, and share some information.
2. Securing a Loan
If you do not already have financing lined up, we are happy to put you in touch with our preferred lender: Arien Bowersock of The HomeLoan Expert. No matter your finances, it is our goal to have set upfront price expectations at your reservation.
Thurman Homes partners with renowned CC Design Studio to assemble multiple palettes to meet the Whisper Valley architectural guidelines. Rather than struggle picking which door hardware coordinates with a faucet, each palette is already expertly curated for every one of our homes. In addition to including multiple upscale features, Thurman Homes offers an exclusive choice of upgrades, such as Tesla wall.
To commit to your reservation, Thurman Homes will draft a construction contract from the Texas Association of Builders. The contract will specify the floorplan, site, price, and any payments. You can expect earnest money and deposit due at contract - both applied toward the purchase price at closing.
5. Construction Process
This is the most time intensive portion of the process, approaching 6 months for the build.
- Site and foundation prep
- Rough-in, mechanical and Insulation
- Drywall, cabinetry and interior finishes
- Exterior finishes
- Hardscape and Landscape
- Final Inspection
- Certificate of Occupancy
This is our opportunity to walk through the home with you to inspect the finished product. Think of this as an additional quality control and chance to have a one on one with the builder to see how everything works as intended.
The most paperwork intensive portion of the process, this is when you sign the final transfer of ownership documents, and are handed the keys.
We’re glad to have gotten to know you, and chances are you feel like friends, as do many of our happy homeowners. We do not want to see you again (for warranty callbacks!), though. That’s why we don’t close until we and you are totally satisfied - with any walk-through questions resolved. As an additional safeguard, Thurman Homes partners with StrucSure to provide a 2-10 Home Warranty. When we see you again, it will hopefully be upon invitation to your housewarming party!
