Our Process

Build With Santa Barbara Homes

At Santa Barbara Homes, building relationships with our clients is as important as building their custom home. When you choose us to build your custom home you become a part of the Santa Barbara Homes family. From lot purchase to move-in, the exciting process typically takes from 18 to 24 months depending on the size of the home. Throughout the process we maintain open communication with our clients – even after you’ve moved into your dream home. Our process includes:


When you are considering purchasing a piece of property for your new home, it is imperative that you understand all factors of building on that lot. Many lots can be impacted by necessary civil engineering, architectural restrictions, HOA requirements, and additional aspects. We help you better understand the pros and cons of building on potential lots.


As one of Arizona’s top builders, we are proud to partner with the premier engineers, architects, and designers in the Valley. We help match each client’s vision, budget, and style with top professionals to ensure a seamless, exciting process.


When you work with our team of designers and specialists every detail is carefully thought out. Every selection and finish is cataloged in a design book to ensure the integrity of your vision and the proper budgets are developed. While your home is being designed, we help you with the selection of flooring, cabinets, countertops, plumbing fixtures, windows, appliances and more. This process helps ensure that we have easy access to any answer throughout your project.


Once your dream home is underway, we track all aspects of construction including scheduling, inspections, expenses, billings, and more. With over 25 years of experience, we are passionately involved from the beginning of the design process and are fully invested before your home ever breaks ground. As your dream home is built from the ground-up, you can expect updates and progress photos on a continuous basis.


Santa Barbara Homes is involved with every aspect of your new home construction. We realize that even the smallest detail has an impact on the overall look and feel of your home. We are the point of contact for all team members and manage all daily activities on your project. We are on-site daily recording every step of the building process helping ensure a seamless construction project and timely completion of your new dream home!


Your Home Completion is an exciting time as a part of the Santa Barbara Homes family. This is when we get to see many months of hard work come to fruition. Your comprehensive orientation walk-through helps ensure that your expectations are exceeded prior to move-in. You will receive a complete package of all the documents and warranties archiving the building process for future reference along with your keys and remotes.
