We couldn't find anyplace – and we tried for two years – where we could get what we have at Phillips Farm, and get the service we received. They have not said no to my husband or me on anything we wanted to do, and their foreman was wonderful. You call and he calls you right back.

Seven Steps in the Home Building Process

Total Client Satisfaction

At Sunlight Construction, we understand that building your own home is a complicated and sometimes daunting undertaking. Our team at Sunlight Construction is here to guide you through this challenging process.  We’ve got the vision, the knowledge, the experience and the commitment to do just that.  We work in collaboration with our clients every step of the way, from the initial plan until well after occupancy, in order to provide for a smooth and successful home building experience.

Our home-building process consists of seven steps:

Step One: Initial Consultation  

Before you sign a contract with us, we discuss the many home design options open to you, the features available, and an estimated closing date that is based on the best available information we have regarding our work load, the typical weather for that time of year, and your particular needs.

Step Two: Contract Signing

We put everything in writing so you can rest assured that we will deliver what we promise. We'll help you match your needs to a final design and custom options so you will be getting the best home for your lifestyle. Then we go to work!

Step Three: Groundbreaking, Foundation Pouring, Framing

During this exciting and fast-moving phase of construction, an empty lot will be transformed into the structure that will be your new home.

Step Four: Preliminary Walk Through

Once the framing is completed and before the drywall is applied to the walls, we take you on a tour through your home to confirm final locations for electrical outlets, telephone and TV connections, lighting fixtures, plumbing, and so on.

Step Five:  Plumbing, Wiring, Heating Systems, Insulation, and Drywall

Your new home begins to take its final form.

Step Six: Outdoor and Indoor Finishes; Trim, Painting, and Landscaping

We administer the finishing strokes.

Step Seven: New Home Orientation

The final step in our building process is an orientation to your new home. We walk you through the entire house to explain how the mechanical systems work, the features of your new appliances, and the products we've used in the construction. We believe that a key element to customer satisfaction, both at the closing and for many years to come, is understanding how a new home works and how to care for and maintain its many features. The orientation also gives you a chance to see the completed, clean house, and it ensures that we have delivered our high standards of quality throughout, on budget and on schedule.
