Our Cat 5 Home Building Process

The first thing we do when working with a client is our initial consultation. With Cat 5 homes there are a variety of floor plans that you can choose from and each can be modified to better suit your tastes and style. After you have selected the amenities you are looking for from your new home, our designers will create a mock up of your new home, allowing you to tweak and revise the design as needed. Once we are completed with the design, we will build your new home to the agreed upon specifications. During the construction process our team will communicate with you, giving you a bi-monthly report of the status and budget of the project. Of course, your project manager is always available should you have any questions or changes.  If you are looking for a home that is built to last, ask us about our Cat 5 home collection and find out if it is right for you.

The Worldwide Steel building has a 1000 square foot in-law apartment inside, the remaining 1400 square feet is a finished garage. Tyler, the owner, came highly recommended and certainly lived up to expectations. Tyler and Don provided a written estimate of costs and updated us every two weeks on estimate vs actual cost. There were several aspects of the project which had to be revised due to the availability of materials. Tyler worked with the engineer to accommodate those changes. Tyler was always available to answer any questions and often recommended energy efficient choices such as spray foam etc. The building was finished several months ago and the average electricity bill has been around $1.20 a day cooling both the residence and the garage. Tyler and Don handled every aspect of the project to include foundation, building erection, framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, septic, insulation, painting, cabinet install, door and window install, painting and flooring.
