Seven benefits of working with use to design and build your dream home

Finding the right design-build company for your project is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make, but it doesn’t have to be the toughest.We strive to make the entire design-build journey empowering and enjoyable. Here’s how we build the better way.

1. Expert Design That Is Highly Personalized

Design is our passion, so we have no interest in building “cookie cutter” homes. We will help you complete your custom home by having several detailed conversations about how you and your family live today—and will in the future. Working together, we will develop design solutions to maximize every inch of space.

2. Oversight That Adds Value From Start to Finish

Cedar Winds is your strategic project partner; we’re never “hands off.” Throughout the entire design and build process we can offer guidance on the flow, functionality, and efficient use of space in your finished home. 

3. Cedar Winds Certified Trades

We only work with local tradespeople that are qualified, insured, reliable, and highly efficient. 

4. Budgeting That Meets Your Expectations.

We have the experience to create accurate and honest budgets. Throughout the entire process we will guide you through the many decisions you need to make to keep the project moving along on time and on budget. 

5. Experienced Design Services, Tailored for Your Needs.

Choosing finishing materials—from roofing shingles to kitchen countertops—that are a personal expression of the whole family can be both fun and overwhelming. The time we spend early in the design process to gain insights about your lifestyle and personal family needs will help us offer finishing options that will spark creativity, and help narrow down the decisions you need to make.

6. One-Stop Design-Build Process

We started Cedar Winds in 1998 to equip families with the knowledge to make confident decisions. Whatever help your family needs—education, tips, creative solutions to achieve consensus, or time to think through your options—we are here to help guide you through from start to finish.

7. A Worry-Free Process That Eliminates Crisis and Risk

We have designed and built nearly 100 custom homes over the past 20+ years—many of which were located on or near waterfronts, or required tearing down an existing building. That experience helps us keep to our timelines, and anticipate and manage the unexpected. We take care of all the vital details, including permit applications, for you.
