Baltimore Custom Homes

Baltimore County Luxury Home Living

When building a new custom home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, building a custom home can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Are there budget considerations? What about the style, design, and plans? Is the lot located in the right neighborhood or location? Are there homeowner association, community, city, or state restrictions that may impact the design or plans?

"The 5 Simple Steps"

Inspired Design

Exciting design ideas drive every project. It all starts with our listening and idea session.

J Paul Builders understands that you want your own special place that reflects your style and taste.

STEP ONE: “Let’s Talk.”™ This is a listening and idea session to establish the scope and estimated budget range for your project. Your space needs, design preferences, and personal details are all identified.

STEP TWO: “Storyboard Process,”™ This step is when your design team is selected and ideas are transformed into a preliminary schematic floor plan. Your estimated budget range is revised to reflect the accepted plan and a chart of allowances is created for the selection process that follows. Specific code or structural issues will be assessed and resolved at this stage.
