We consult with you every step of the way, providing you flexibility to customize plans and layouts, with the result that you will feel completely at home from the moment you first step through the door. We ensure that not only will your new home be perfect for you, but that it will also be right for the environment. Your home will be Energy Star Certified, crafted to the National Green Building Standard.

    Custom Design

    Engaging in Our Custom Design Process

    Now that you have met with your sales associate, project manager and architect to sign a Design Agreement, let the creating begin! We know that this home is more than just walls and fixtures, it is the place where you will live your life. It is important for us to understand your lifestyle so we take the time to meet with you and discuss “the nuts and bolts” of your home. We will look at what rooms are needed and not needed, how much space you desire and the look and feel that would best compliment your personal style. Take a look at the Homes by Dickerson Pinterest page and our online gallery of photos and bring them to the table along with your own ideas and pieces of inspiration! We look forward to creating The Home of Your Life!

    Creating The Home of Your Life

    Our architect will then compile all the ideas agreed upon and translate them onto paper. After dedicated refining and drawing to scale, you will be presented with rough interior sketches and a color-rendered, hand-sketched front elevation of your new dream home. An additional meeting with the team allows you the opportunity to give your feedback and our architect the chance to complete your home design. Upon approval, the home design is sent to drafting and structural engineering review.

    Pricing and Specifications Review

    Now that we finalized the structural elements and interior finishes, we are able to provide you with accurate pricing based upon your home design. We will apply the fee for your Design Agreement to your final purchase price and the team will now begin to bring your home to life!

    Our Process

    Step 1: Dreaming of the Home of Your Life

    Our process begins with you. Your dreams. Your goals. The Home of Your Life. Browse our gallery of homes, become inspired by our floorplans and imagine your life in a Homes by Dickerson custom design.

    Step 2: Financing The Home of Your Life

    We want to help you make your dreams a reality, so it is important to understand your buying power from the beginning of the process. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs:
    • Partner with one of our preferred lenders
    • Cash/Buyer Financing
    • Construction-to-Perm Loan

    Step 3: Deciding on a Location

    At Homes by Dickerson, we understand the importance of where your home is located, which is why we carefully select the neighborhoods in which we build. We take into consideration surrounding areas, conveniences, and lifestyle. So, whether you want to be closer to the downtown scene, enjoy a shorter commute to the RTP area, or benefit from a larger home site in a tranquil setting, Homes by Dickerson is committed to providing you with the best that the Triangle has to offer. Homes by Dickerson is currently building in Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, Fuquay-Varina, Wake Forest, Wendell, Apex and Pittsboro!

    Step 4: Designing The Home of Your Life

    Homes by Dickerson offers three options when it comes to designing The Home of Your Life.
    A. Start from our existing plan portfolio
    • Browse our gallery of award-winning rendered floorplans
    • Place a refundable lot reservation to secure your favorite homesite while we finalize your plan and pricing details
     
    B. Modify an existing plan in our portfolio
    • Choose one of our existing, award-winning floorplans and customize to fit your family’s needs
    • Place a refundable lot hold on your home site while we finalize your plan and pricing details
    C. Create a custom design
    • Sit down with our on-staff licensed architect to review your goals and needs. Get inspired by plans we have done in the past, or start from scratch to design The Home of Your Life
    • The design agreement fee can be applied towards the purchase price of your new home. See our Custom Design Page for more details on this process

    At Homes by Dickerson, "building green" is of the utmost importance to our team and our process. We ensure that each home we build is Energy-Star certified, crafted to the National Green Building Standard, and voluntarily built to the North Carolina HERO Code. Our High Performance Certified Green Homes are so much more than just energy efficient. They offer you peace of mind about your comfort, your health, your money, and your impact on the environment.

    Step 5: Personalizing your Pricing and Specifications

    Now that you have carefully chosen all of the quality features and finished details to go into your new home, you will have the opportunity to review your personalized pricing and specifications. Not only will we give you ideas on how to maximize your self-appointed budget but we will work diligently to stay within that budget during the entire process.

    Step 6: Making it official

    Once all the details are finalized, you will be able to review Home By Dickerson's Purchase agreement and ask any questions you may have before signing the contract. To protect all parties, we want to convey all intentions in writing, we will also collect a non-refundable "10%" builder deposit at this time.

     

    Step 7: Reviewing Architectural Plans and Approvals

    We want to make sure that we have accurately portrayed your vision. Before your pre-construction meeting, you will receive finalized drawings for your review and approval.

     

    Step 8: Finishing Touches to The Home of Your Life

    This is one of the most exciting steps of the entire process as you choose the colors and finishes which reflect your own personal preferences and lifestyle! You will be assigned a Design Coordinator to guide you through this comprehensive design process located at one of our three Triangle-area design centers. Enjoy up to four meetings with your Design Coordinator as you bring your Homes by Dickerson custom design to life!

    • Selection Process for Inventory Homes

      If you are purchasing a home that is already under construction, your selection process may be limited to those items that have not yet been ordered. A Homes By Dickerson representative will be able to provide you with items that may still be selected.

    • My Home Story

      We want to share with you visual progress of your new home! Our sales team will be sending pictures and updates along the journey.

    Step 9: Going vertical

    From site preparation to your final walk thru, you will experience several opportunities to meet onsite with your project manager. Each of these meetings represents a different milestone in the construction of your new home. Whether it is your electrical walk-thru, or interior trim walk, you will see your home throughout its various stages and be prepared for your homeowner orientation to review final details before closing.

    Step 10: Welcoming you to The Home of Your Life!

    Your Homes by Dickerson Closing Coordinator will help you to ensure all details are taken care of and shared with the closing attorney at settlement. The only step left is to then present you with the key to your new home, after the attorney has it recorded.'

    Step 11: Settling into Your New Home

    Now that you have closed on The Home of Your Life, you will meet with your Client Care Representative who will be able to guide you through the first year as a Dickerson homeowner. Our warranty process includes our three-month and ten-month walk thrus as well as valuable information on homeowner maintenance details.

    Homes by Dickerson is honored to be the builder of the HGTV® Smart Home 2016!

    We at Homes By Dickerson are proud to be the builder for the HGTV Smart Home 2016! As one of our most exciting ventures to date, we look forward to the public launch of this custom designed home which combines our passion for high-performance, green efforts and the latest tech inclusions.

    HGTV Smart Homes are in a class of their own and we could not be more thrilled to be a part of this exclusive list of home builders. The homes are known for their clever construction incorporating advanced technology, gadgets and smart solutions to enhance entertaining and everyday living. Designers, architects, and builders from both HGTV and Homes by Dickerson worked together to carefully plan every detail of the custom construction to ensure this home is highly innovative and energy efficient for the tech-savvy homeowner.

    The Homes by Dickerson plan chosen is a three-level traditional craftsman home boasting approximately 3,300-square-feet with four bedrooms and five bathrooms. HGTV Smart Home 2016 host and interior designer Tiffany Brooks brought touches of rustic oak, metals and stone to the design and combined them with a cool color palette that provides an unexpected contrast of traditional materials juxtaposed with modern and eclectic touches. In addition, she sourced art and sculpture from many of Raleigh’s local talent to further extend the custom flair of this stunning home. The floorplan features three levels that provide plenty of room to either spread out or gather for family fun. The main level includes a master bedroom suite, open kitchen, dining room, living room and screened porch. Downstairs, the home includes an additional bedroom suite as well as a media room and exercise room. Completing the layout, the upper level boasts a home office and two additional bedrooms. This fully-furnished HGTV Smart Home 2016 is Energy Star 3.0 and Bronze-level Green certified, featuring products from some of the top national brands.

    It is also no wonder that Raleigh was chosen to be this year’s destination for the HGTV Smart Home search as the city itself, a center of Southern culture and home of Research Triangle Park, is the perfect balance between artistic design and cutting-edge technology.
