PROCESS

STEP 1 - DESIGN

Weather it’s building on your lot or on ours, the only thing that matters is taking your design elements and economically and efficiently building it in the field. It matters tremendously if you engage the designer first before selecting the builder. You can work with our designer or bring your own.

STEP 2 - BUDGET

The budget process begins with the basic foundation, framing, roofing, rough plumbing, electrical, heating and air-conditioning systems installation pricing. You will have weekly “spend” reports that track budget line items. Also, you can have control of each allowance for flooring, fixtures, lighting, appliances and landscaping and more.

STEP 3 - CONSTRUCTION

Steve Brusko’s management experience allows for the selection of subcontractors who are experts and insured to meet agreed start and completion dates. Relationships with municipal authorities, local zoning and building code inspection officials eliminate dow-time and construction delays.

What our clients say

Steve gave me a great “Welcome to North Carolina!” His friendly and flexible team ensured he could finish the upgrades and changes to make my house a home within my closing date. Steve had a diverse selection of upgrades and styles to personalize the home to our taste and make it our own.

They offer smart floor plans that work the way people live their lives and manage space. It was a smart choice to work with Steve.

Paige
Cornelius, NC

Once we entered the home we were even more impressed with the floor plan, custom quality and attention to detail and finally the fabulous kitchen which is normally seen in homes in the $1 million range.”

We loved that Steve had the ability to make changes while in the building stage. They are all great people to work with in building a home! They provide awesome curb appeal and landscaping. “

Lisa

I moved into my home 2 months ago. I love it! I thought Steve Brusko was easy to deal with and addressed any concerns that I had. I had never considered building on a lot before, I thought it would be a terribly complicated process, but I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted in an existing home. They made it easy and fun to build it the way I wanted it!!! Steve came out to do my final walk through with me and he was super to deal with. He had all of the items on my punch list done in no time. He even added a few things to it I would never have noticed. If you are looking for a quality home this is a great company. We had been living in a “big builder” neighborhood before moving into this home, and there is an amazing difference in quality!! They are local guys who seem to care deeply about their reputation in this small community.

Kate

“Steve Brusko was: (1) Very informative during the building process (2) Easy to contact and work with throughout the building process (3) Open to suggestions and spoke from experience about materials and colors”

“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Steve and his guys. Together, with their guidance and help, we built a new home for my elderly parents that they will enjoy for hopefully many years to come. Thanks for everything.”
