Design Build Steps

The four step Design Build process ensures that we meet your every expectation and keep open lines of communication, so you’re never surprised. With the Design Build strategy, we’ve built countless Okanagan homes and won dozens of awards for our custom homes. Here are the steps you’ll go through when designing your new home or renovation.

Our Process

Keith Construction is proud to offer high-quality custom home builds and renovations throughout the Okanagan. With our Design Build process, you’ll have complete clarity and peace of mind throughout your build.. Contact us today to get started.


Initial meeting​

In our first meeting, we determine the scope of work, needs, budget, and specific site conditions. We provide references and answer all your questions in this stage.


Draft plans

We draft your initial layout and concept, then produce a set of professional drawings. If you have your own plans, we review to ensure they’re up to code and match your budget.


Review estimate

Once you’re happy with the plans, we create a detailed estimate and review every line with you. We apply for permits, quantify your allowances, and provide a tentative schedule.


Build home

After the final scope of the work is defined, the schedule laid out, and the estimate approved, we start building! This is the fun part, where your dream home becomes a reality.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I provide my own set of plans, or do you only build from pre-existing floor plans?

We proudly construct custom homes made exactly to the client’s specifications. You can provide any professional set of architectural drawings for construction, or you can work with our design team to create an in-house plan.

What's the difference between design and drafting?

Put simply, design comes before drafting. Design involves talking to the client, creating sketches and 3D models, refining the concept, and creating a layout. Drafting comes once the design is set, and it’s a technical process that creates a detailed technical drawing that shows how the builder should proceed.

Does Keiths Construction offer in-house design and drafting?

Yes. We have been a custom home design and build company for over 30 years. Our design team has expert knowledge to create the perfect custom home to suit your needs. Our Design Build homes are unique and reflect the client’s lifestyle as well as their personality.

What services are included in designing and drafting a custom home?

Our Design Build homes have four steps through construction. Concept: our design team sits down with you to discuss your ideas, needs, and budget. Design: based on the initial layouts and your feedback, we refine your design until you’re happy. Compliance: during design and construction, we ensure our plans comply with all building codes and regulations. Finalization: we create a set of professional architectural drawings for your project.

What green renovations will improve the efficiency of my house?

We offer many renovation and upgrade types that can improve the efficiency of your home. From new windows and doors to Energy Star appliances, we can make the most cost-effective recommendations for your situation.
