Design-Build Homes

When you say, “Welcome to my home,” you’ll mean it in every sense of the word. Because from our very first conversation to the day you move in, Advance Design & Construction works to make your home your own – in every detail. It’s what we mean by true custom home design and build. From design and engineering to site selection and preparation, financing and construction – we partner with you at every step, ensuring the home you envision is the home we help you create and build.

From initial idea to completion

Whether you’ve seen it in a magazine, on a design site or during an evening’s entertainment at a friend’s home – a true custom home just seems to have a more pleasing look, feel and flow. Even as you identify the unique features that stand out, you find that everything about this home comes together to create a seamless and singular experience.

At every step of the way, you’ll be engaged in the process, with timely communication and our online building management system that ensures you always know the progress being made, what’s required of you and that budgets and timelines are being met.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many homes do you build each year?

Our clients have high expectations of us and we ensure their expectations are met by devoting the time and attention required for their custom home. That is why Advance Design & Construction focuses on 10 to 15 new custom home starts each year. This also allows greater quality control and better service for our customers.

What is the average price range for the custom homes you build?

Currently Advance Design & Construction builds custom homes ranging from $400,000 to $2,000,000. However, there are many variables that ultimately determine the cost.

How much is the cost per square foot for an average Advance Design & Construction custom home?

There are many factors that go into the cost of designing and building your custom home. From the size and amenities of your home, to the finishes and even the cost of your lot, all can impact the final calculation of ‘cost per square foot.’ We find that our clients appreciate the ability to create a custom home design that allows them to express their preferences and the costs associated with them – and then make their decisions accordingly. This enables homeowners to invest in those areas of their home that are most important to them, without sacrificing the qualities that are most important to them or paying for those that do not have as great a value to them.

Can Advance Design & Construction create the design and floor plans for my home?

As one of the area’s leading design-build companies, nearly 100% of the homes Advance Design & Construction builds are also designed by us. However, we’re also happy to build a house from plans provided by an outside source. In either case, our specialization in custom design is an asset. In many cases, we can provide photo-realistic views of your home before construction even begins.

How does financing work?

With Advance Design & Construction, you may choose to manage financing yourself or rely on us to provide it for you. Typically a construction loan is required to begin the construction process and is usually funded at 75% of the completed home’s value, based on a professional appraisal. Many homeowners choose to provide their own construction financing because the interest is deductible and funds are not released to the builder unless they are approved by you.

How does the building process work?

Once a design is approved and an agreement has been forged, the process begins by submitting plans for permits. Once complete, construction can begin. Advance Design & Construction uses an online project management system to implement our proven process. It is easily accessible to the homeowner, so you’re able to track all the details and costs associated with the construction of your custom home.

How can we find a lot?

You may have very definite ideas about where you’d like to live or you may want to know a little more about different communities and developments. Advance Design & Construction has a selective inventory of properties in some of the most desirable neighborhoods, as well as a working relationship with Omaha’s developers and developers in the surrounding areas. Even if you do not purchase one of our lots, we can assist you in the selection of your lot. Your property selection may have considerable impact on your plan, size, orientation, and lot preparation costs.

Does Advance Design & Construction offer remodeling, additions and renovations?

Yes, we even have divisions devoted to remodeling and renovation. In fact, we’ve completed many additions, basement finishes and remodels, as well as exterior renovations and repairs over the years. We utilize 3D CAD, ADC to show how the proposed work will impact your existing home.

Whether it’s marveling at the engineering that made a suspended walkway possible or the delight at discovering an unexpected detail or feature, Advance Design & Construction introduces you to a true integration of design and build, your individuality and our architectural expertise, and the successful solution between ‘what if’ and ‘why not.’

It’s the magic that happens when your home is a true custom build. When your builder is your collaborative partner. And when you look around at what you’ve created and say, “Yes, this was all worth it.”

“We were first time builders and had a great experience. Steve and Pat are very professional and friendly. They are always available and trustworthy. Our house is beautiful, and it was finished on time. We are very satisfied”

Jason and Kirsten

“We are so thankful for the opportunity we had in building our new home with you! You have impressed us through the entire process with communication and knowledge. Everyone at ADC listened to us with our needs and our design ideas. Our new home reflects our family because you worked creatively and diligently with us until we were satisfied. We were impressed with your organization and enjoyed your attitude and ‘whatever-it-takes’ to make us happy spirit. The quality of the your work continues to impress us! We truly feel that our home was custom designed for us and our family. We want to thank you again for building our dream home. It was a joy to work with ADC and we look forward to spending many happy years in this incredible house.”

Brad and Tracy

“We believe the term “custom home” is greatly overused by many of today’s builders. ADC helped us design and build a home that is truly unique. We chose Steve and Pat to build our home for many reasons. They provide design services and unique ideas that other contractors cannot match. Their commitment to quality and workmanship is evident when you tour their homes. This commitment to quality also extended to the subcontractors. Not only did they execute the plan, but also had suggestions that contributed to the uniqueness of our home. Lastly, we cannot say enough about the follow-up after we moved in. Luke was fantastic as the on-site supervisor both during and after construction. Their main concern was making sure the house met our expectations. We can’t thank you enough for building the house of our dreams and would unconditionally recommend ADC!”
