Conception

Phillips Luxury Homes takes great pride in building custom estates with a unique style and design that fits the personal lifestyles of our clients. With years of experience in the luxury market, we know how to work closely with you to develop a home that is a direct reflection of your creative vision. Not only must the home be an extension of your style preferences, but also meet the needs of you and your family.

Lot Selection

The first step in bringing your vision to life is working with the Phillips Luxury Homes team to determine your family’s objectives for the estate. What is the desired size of the home? What type of setting and style are you looking to achieve? Once these things are understood we will work with you to find the right lot to fit these guidelines or work with the lot you already own.

From this point we will either work with your architect or bring in one of our preferred architects/designers based on the style of the home and your preferences. We have a group of world-class designers that specialize in contemporary, southwest contemporary, Tuscan, Spanish Colonial, Hacienda, and Territorial. We work closely with our clients and architects to arrange the plans in such a way that satisfies all your hopes and dreams from the start. This is the first time your vision will be interpreted onto paper as the preliminary design gets underway-making this a very important step in assuring your home matches your original concept.

Materials

After determining the architecture and layout of your home, it is time to start pursuing the many unique facets that will be found in your estate. Exterior color, stone, accenting stone, paint stain colors, door styles, wrought iron color and style, and driveway material are just a few of the many material choices needed to be made. Many interior selections will be made such as cabinets, countertops, flooring, paint colors, appliances, and light fixtures. Don’t be alarmed by the abundance of decisions. The Phillips Luxury Homes team of designers will help you each step of the way.

Head to the City

Once all the exterior and interior design decisions have been made, it is time to send the architectural and engineering plans to the city for approval. The approval process takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks. In the meantime, we will be meeting with you to specify underground plumbing, electric, soap niches, and many other details. At this point in the process, the extensive decisions, for the most part, are complete. It is almost time to see your vision take shape and begin the construction process!
