Building A Custom Home Should Be

One Of The Best Experiences In Your Life

Our Process


We will meet to discuss your desires and goals for your new home. You can use any of our past or current floor plans as a jumping off point, bring us any number of examples from magazines or the internet or simply rough sketch your ideas on paper and our in house design team will do their best to combine all of your most desired features into your perfect dream home.


If you have not already viewed one of our completed homes, we like to make a site visit to discuss options and finishes in more detail in an environment where you can see, touch and experience a home similar to the one you plan to build. This meeting may also include a site visit to your lot if you have one; if not, our in house realtor team will be happy to help you locate the perfect lot for your new home.


Each and every custom home by Satterwhite Construction Inc. is tailored to your specific needs and requests; therefore, it is impossible to provide a "per square foot" price for our homes. We like to use a Design Contract as our first step, so we have the opportunity to request bids on the project. We are then able to provide the most accurate price possible for building your new home.


After discussing your most important goals for your new home, at this stage we will provide a complete set of plans engineered to meet NC Building Code, final sales price and detailed specifications for what is included in the quoted sales price. We will then have the opportunity to add or discuss any areas in more detail and make adjustments as necessary.


Once everything has been decided on, we will then finalize your sales contract and begin constructing your Satterwhite Construction custom new home! Here is where it all comes together, and Alicia Satterwhite will be your new home consultant from start to finish as we create the beautiful home you have been envisioning.


Included with your new home is a One Year Limited Warranty through Satterwhite Construction Inc. that meets or exceeds industry standards. You can rest easy knowing that we stand behind every aspect of our work.
