Laying the Groundwork
One of the most important aspects of building a new home is design, and the most important aspect of design is planning. There’s an old saying: proper prior planning prevents poor performance. We certainly want to avoid poor performance, and you probably do too, so planning ahead is absolutely crucial. Making the best use of available space to accommodate the needs of you and your family is part of this planning process, and our designers will work closely with you to find the best plan for your Hawaiian home. This should be started as soon as possible because creating a design and a plan can generally take between one to two months to complete.
After this plan is complete, it’s time to submit the permit, as well as the contract and supporting documentation, to a financial institution to procure a construction loan. This process can usually take up to 30 to 45 days and getting the permit in the first place usually takes about 30 days for new home construction projects. While we help expedite these steps, it’s important to plan ahead and take into account the long waiting periods and factor this time into your overall construction plans. Furthermore, if you plan on demolishing an old house on a lot before construction, you’ll need to apply for approval from the State Historical Preservation Division, which can add another 45 days to the overall process.
Whether you want to build your home in Honolulu, Kona, Big Island, Kauai, or Maui, our architects can bring your dream home to life with luxury designs and skilled contractors; we will see the project through from start to finish.
