JayMarc Custom Home Designs

How to Design a Custom Home - The JayMarc Way

Start to finish in 18 - 24 months.


First, you’ll connect with the JayMarc team and share your home vision and goals. From there we’ll connect you with the right team members to help you get moving forward on your new home project!


If you’re opting for the custom home route, we’ll collaborate to get the ball rolling on your home. This includes finding a lot, selecting floor plans, and initial design ideas.


Step three is an exciting phase no matter what new home route you’ve selected. For custom builds, this is when the paperwork, permits, and procurement necessary to start construction happens.


For custom home projects, this is when your home officially “breaks ground”. It is time for your vision to start to become a reality.


Pack your bags and change your mailing address! It’s now time to get the keys to your new home and move in.

This is also when we’ll get you set up with your homeowner portal login that will allow you to access your warranty, make service requests, and learn helpful home maintenance tips.

Frequently Asked Questions About Custom Home Design

What's the difference between custom home design and pre-designed house plans?

A custom home design is one that’s tailored specifically to a homeowner's needs, desires, and the specific characteristics of a lot.

Every aspect, from layout to finishes, is chosen to match the creator’s vision.

In contrast, pre-designed home plans have been developed to work on most lots and for current design trends.

It is faster to work with an established floor plan, and some are award-winning designs, but you likely won’t get the same level of uniqueness as your would in a custom design.

Can I incorporate eco-friendly or sustainable features into my design?

Yes, when you work with JayMarc you can incorporate environmentally responsible features into your home.

We have architectural designers and engineers that can help create energy-efficient homes.

Do you offer 3D modeling or virtual walkthroughs of the design?

Yes, our architectural designers use the latest in design and CAD technology. These advanced solutions allow you to see visual representations of your home design.

How will the topography of my lot influence the design?

A lot’s topography is just one environmental consideration that will influence the design of your home. It’s critical your home’s design complements your lot and adapts to its unique characteristics and limitations.

A sloped lot might inspire a multi-level design or a walk-out basement, while flat terrain offers different architectural possibilities.

Our team will help you design a home that you not only love, but also adapts to the natural landscape of your lot.
