Philosophy: 
Lakeway Homes, Inc. is dedicated to excellence in construction. We have interior
designers and home designers that work with us and our clients throughout the
building process. We work directly with YOU the customer. We feel you come to us
for our credentials and experience, thus you deal directly with us; not a salesperson
or superintendent that does not have the experience or credentials you expect. This
of course also keeps the cost of your home down. If we don’t have the extra
personnel you don’t have to pay for them! This does limit us to the number of
homes we build a year, but this philosophy has worked for 30 years and our
customers have really appreciated it. We don’t compare ourselves to other
builders-we compare ourselves to what we did yesterday-and seek always to be on
the cutting edge of the industry technical advancements. You can compare us to
others.
We are certified Graduate Master Builders and Engineers. Building your home is the
largest financial investment for most people. Shouldn’t you deserve an Engineer to
ensure structural integrity and knowledge?  We also have 30 years of design
experience. 
Procedure:
»
We will meet with you and view your lot or our lot and get an idea of the
design you want and what the property offers to enhance or hinder your
home design.
»
We will review contracts (similar to yours) of previous clients to familiarize
you with the verbiage of the contract addendums and specifications.
»
We will enter a design agreement and lot contract if you have not purchased
your own lot.
» 
A designer will prepare a rendering of the concept of YOUR home and once
approved by the client, an elevation will be drawn.

From here we will meet with you to go over the concept plan and make design
suggestions. With an agreement on the Interior Designer, a consultation will
also be scheduled for designers input on your lifestyle to be incorporated into
your home.
»
A preliminary set of plans is completed.
»
We meet to establish a list of amenities and specifications to meet your budget.
»
We incorporate all of these steps into a contract and review all of the costs of
your home.
»
A construction contract is signed with the sales price which can include all
costrs incurredd to this point along with the costs of construction.
»
We will assist you in obtaining interim and permanent financing. We will review
the walk-thru schedules at different stages of the construction of your home and
approximate time frames for each stage.
