What is Build Lodge?

Build Lodge is a residential design firm, and pre-construction services company for homeowners, builders and developers.

  • For homeowners, project success requires a perfect home design and a great contractor. With build-ready plans in hand, we help owners interview builders, review bids and choose a contractor who can see your vision, build to spec, finish on time and on budget.

  • For builders, we remove all ambiguity and provide a well designed start-ready project. We also educate homeowners on the build process, and establish realistic expectations in order to mitigate project stress.

Our process encourages bid accuracy & project accountability to help mitigate surprises and costly mistakes. The goal is to save owners 3-5% on final construction costs.

Home Design & Build Plans

Starting with excellent design is the critical first step that will set your custom build or remodel project on the right course. At the Lodge, our goal is timelessness so that where you live has an implied history; one indicative of the family that calls it home. 

Plan Takeoffs, Engineering &
Finish Material Selections

Calculated material takeoffs, finish material selections, engineering, and specifications help builders bid your project with little speculation. This allows owners to make educated spending decisions early in the planning process.

Builder Selection & Contracts

A clearly defined project, combined with a thoughtful builder selection process (if builder is unknown), can achieve cost accountability and met expectations. We feel that advocating for the project rather than the individual stakeholders guarantees a positive building experience.

Homeowner Services

 We make it our business to know the very best in the residential services industry so you don't have to. From interior designers and landscapers, to Realtors and movers, Build Lodge supports the needs of homeowners by partnering with proven service providers. 


Builder Services

 Build Lodge is not a homebuilder, and as a matter of principal we will never compete with our builder partners. In addition to offering the very best in design services, we offer a turnkey pre-construction solution that removes friction from the owner/builder relationship. Other services include accounting, draw management, subcontractor agreements, payments and regulatory compliance.

Developer Design Codes, Lot Sales & Plan Review

Implementation of a land developers vision begins with a well defined residential design strategy. Build Lodge can provide a comprehensive design code and plan review process that ensures architectural integrity and maximizes value. We also sell lots more efficiently by marketing to every qualified builder and Realtor within a market.
