Cloud IX Homes Building Process

Whether you are starting with a picture in your mind, notes on scratch paper, or modifying an existing Cloud IX home, your new, elegant custom home will be designed to meet your lifestyle and budget. Let’s take a look at the steps in building your new home with Cloud IX Homes.

Step 1- Contact

The first step in your Cloud IX Home building experience will be an informal gathering where you and the company will discuss the wide variety of opportunities available to you. At this initial meeting you will also understand the process, time frame, and costs associated with building your dream home.

Step 2 - Budget & Financing

In the first meeting, you will have been given a general idea of costs correlated with your new home. It is during this step that you will need to document your loan pre-qualification.

Step 3 - Pre-Construction Agreement

Cloud IX’s pre-construction agreement is an intermediary agreement that allows you less commitment and more freedom as you move towards an accurate construction bid. This agreement leads you through home design, trim and color selections, and required permits.

Step 4 - Home Site Selection

This is when it starts to get exciting! Once the site is selected it will be easier to determine the configurations and any restrictions that need to be factored into the design of your home. Cloud IX Homes will walk you through this process and identify the best lots available to you. 

Step 5 - Bid Analysis & Home Design

Once you have secured your lot, Cloud IX will utilize local architects to personalize your home design. This is also the time your construction documents will be put out to bid with suppliers and subcontractors. Typically the duration of this stage is 2 to 4 months. 

Step 6 - Construction Agreement 

The construction agreement will outline all construction specifications and the timeline of the project. 

Step 7 - Building Your Dream Home

Once your home site has been selected and your dream home design is down on paper it is time for Cloud IX Home to get busy building your new construction home. Throughout this time you will have scheduled visits to the site to keep you in the loop and orient you with your new home. The general duration of the building process is 8 to 24 months.

Step 8 - Completion

Finally, your custom-built dream home is finished and it is time to move in and start making memories!

Step 9 - Warranty

Cloud IX Home stands by their work and every home they build is covered by their 10-year Limited Warranty. Four months after you move into your new home they will schedule a walk-through to review any warrantable items you have identified as problematic. There will be an additional walk-through after your first year with your new home, as well.
