OUR PROCESS

At Blake Building, we know that designing and building your dream home is exciting. It can also be a time filled with questions and uncertainties. That’s why we provide you with the tools to feel informed and empowered with clear expectations every step of the way. Take a moment to review our home building process, and then connect with our team of preferred partners to ensure that your financing, title and insurance process goes smoothly, as well. If you still have questions, just ask. The Blake Building’s team of knowledgeable experts is available to address any other questions or concerns.

Site Analysis

Whether you are looking to build in the heart of South Tampa or are planning a waterfront custom home, we carefully examine your perfect site to determine its possibilities. Our analysis will thoroughly review your property to ensure that your home adheres to any setback or site restrictions, while also taking neighbourhood traffic patterns into consideration. Additionally, the design of your house will account for the placement of existing trees, prevailing breezes and sun patterns to ensure the precise placement of windows and optimal sight lines. With this detailed early analysis, we help ensure a custom home built to your precise specifications.

Architectural Planning

At Blake Building, we believe that the home of your dreams is within reach. We partner directly with leading architectural firms, such as Gritton & Associates Architects and McKay Design Studio, to help plan every detail, creating a blueprint that stems directly from your tastes, style and inspiration.

Design Services

With design in place, we turn our attention to the interior of your home, helping you to select the finishes that complete your vision. At Blake Building, we’ve partnered with quality vendors to ensure that every detail from windows and flooring, to lighting and even your kitchen sink blend perfectly in your new home.

Budget & Financing

With over 20 years building in the Tampa Bay area, you can rest assured that we’ve developed quality relationships with both suppliers and vendors that allow us to secure the best pricing, as well as provide the highest quality workmanship for your home. We develop a detailed budget to help guide the construction process so that from the outset, you can feel comfortable with your investment.

Construction

With detailed plans, budget and financing in place, we are ready to begin the construction phase of  your home. Your assigned project manager will personally oversee your build from start to finish, answering questions and concerns along the way.  In addition, you will be able to monitor your progress through an online dashboard that will give you access to your construction schedule, site photos, documents and more.

Walk-Through and Certificate of Occupancy

Prior to closing on your new home, you will complete a thorough walk-through of your home with the Blake Building team. This will be an opportunity to help assure that every last detail meets your expectations.
