Frequently Asked Questions

A project manager plays a crucial role in a custom home build by overseeing the entire construction process. This includes scheduling subcontractors and suppliers, maintaining the flow of work by purchasing supplies and paying trades, providing quality control, and managing communication between all stakeholders, including keeping you, the client, engaged and up-to-date on progress. At Kapiti Built, our project managers are dedicated to ensuring that your custom home build is completed on time, within budget, and to the highest standards of quality.

The first step in starting a custom home build is to schedule an initial consultation with our team at Kapiti Built. During this meeting, we will discuss your vision, budget, and timeline. We will also explain our process, answer any questions you may have, and outline the next steps to get your project underway.

The timeline for building a custom home can vary depending on the complexity and size of the project, as well as other factors like weather conditions, product availability, and permit approvals. On average, a custom home build can take anywhere from 9 to 18 months. We will provide a detailed timeline during the planning phase and keep you informed of progress throughout the project.

Choosing the interior or exterior design for your custom home involves several important considerations to ensure the final result aligns with your needs and preferences. Here are some key factors to keep in mind:

  • Family Needs and Functionality: Assess the specific needs of your family. Consider how many bedrooms and bathrooms you require, the layout of living spaces, and any special features like a home office or playroom. Functionality should be a top priority to ensure your home supports your daily activities comfortably.
  • Aesthetic Preferences: Identify your style preferences for both the interior and exterior. Look at different architectural styles, color schemes, and design elements that appeal to you. Create mood boards or collect inspiration from design magazines, websites, or social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram.
  • Budget: Establish a clear budget for your project. Your budget will influence your choices in materials, finishes, and the overall scope of the design. It’s essential to balance your desired aesthetic with financial considerations to avoid overspending.
  • Site Orientation and Energy Efficiency: Consider the orientation of your site and how it affects natural light, views, and energy efficiency. Thoughtful design can enhance energy efficiency through strategic window placement, insulation, and the use of sustainable materials.
  • Sustainable Building Practices: If sustainability is important to you, incorporate eco-friendly building practices and materials. This can include energy-efficient appliances, renewable energy sources, water-saving fixtures, and sustainable materials.
  • Pre-drawn Designs vs. Custom Plans: Decide whether you prefer a pre-drawn design (spec) that you can modify or a fully custom plan. Pre-drawn designs can be a cost-effective starting point while custom plans offer complete personalization to meet your unique needs. We can recommend design professionals to help you through either process.
  • Choosing Materials and Finishes: The choice of materials and finishes is crucial for achieving your desired aesthetic and ensuring durability. An interior designer can offer expert advice on options that match your style, are easy to maintain, and are sustainable. They can present a range of choices and help you make informed decisions.
  • Collaborating with Professionals: Working with professionals such as architects, interior designers, and builders can significantly enhance the quality of your custom home. If you don’t have a designer in mind, we have partnered with an experienced and reputable design team who can work closely with you to understand your style preferences, lifestyle needs, and budget constraints. Their expertise will help bring your vision to life efficiently and effectively.

By considering these factors and collaborating with professionals, you can ensure that your custom home’s design meets your functional needs, reflects your personal style, and stays within your budget.

Determining your budget for a custom home build involves considering various costs such as land acquisition, design fees, construction costs, permits, and finishes. It’s important to have a clear understanding of your financial situation and to set a realistic budget. We will provide you with an initial detailed cost estimate and work with you from there to determine an effective budget strategy. While the project is in progress, we will continually be providing updates to ensure your project stays on track and within scope.

As a contractor supplying to Builders for over 40 Years my experience with Regan has been exceptional. It is refreshing to deal with a Builder committed to Quality first. I would have Kaptiti build my home and would endorse them to anyone looking for an exceptional Builder.

Regan Edser and his great team at Kapiti Built did an excellent job on our home renovation. From our initial meeting with Regan, right through to the completion of the project we had a great experience. Regan's budgeting work, trades scheduling, and overall professionalism made sure our renovation basically came in on-time, and within budget. We have not hesitated to recommend Kapiti Built to others.

We have experienced great results with our new Kapiti Built renovation. This project entailed taking our home down to the studs and basically building us a new one. Quality workmanship, great communication and a project that came in on budget. We are confident in referring Regan and his crew to my clients and our friends and family!

My husband and I purchased a house originally built in 1991 requiring a complete update, so our realtor suggested Regan Edser. Being pragmatic, we decided to interview 3 different contractors first, and after meeting Regan in person we decided to go with Kapiti Built. Regan is dependable, honest, skilled, practical, and creative - no problem is too big and no concern is too small. Every reno has its fair share of problems that crop up, but Regan made the process stress-free and enjoyable. If anyone should be fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with Regan, we highly recommend him and his team without any hesitation.

The folks at Kapiti have done 2 large projects for us in the last 5 years: a full rebuild and modernization of our kitchen and a rework of a downstairs studio and bathroom. Both projects had some unforeseen struggles due to an older house but the end result is amazing. I also appreciate how transparent they are to work with. We will happily call on them again when it's time for our next project.

Regan Edser and his team at Kapiti Built have done two jobs for us, turning two unused lower levels into beautiful secondary suites. Obviously, we wouldn’t have come back to Kapiti Built for the second job if we hadn’t been thrilled with the first one. Truth be told, it was a hard act to follow but they've managed to top themselves and we're basically ecstatic about the most recent job. My lord, it is beautiful work. In addition to their technical expertise, Regan is upfront and transparent about the business side of things. We've had no surprises on the bill and when something came up that we had not planned for, or the City suddenly wanted to change things up on us, Regan was on it like icing on a cake. We cannot recommend Kapiti Built highly enough.
