our process

At Argue Custom Homes, we take building relationships with our clients as seriously as their custom home construction. From acquisition to completion, the exciting process can take from 2 to 4 years depending on the size of the project. That’s why we have open and ongoing communication with our clients – even after you’ve moved into your dream house. Our process includes the following steps:

Land and Lot Acquisition

When a client is considering purchasing a piece of property for their new home, it is imperative that the client understands all the details of building on a lot. Our team provides services that help any owner best understand the details and potential constraints of building. This includes civil engineering, architectural restrictions, HOA requirements, and additional aspects that can impact the feasibility of certain building and design aspects.

Home Design

As Arizona’s top builder, we are fortunate to partner with the valley’s premier architects and designers. We match clients’ vision, budgets, style, and timelines with the top professionals to ensure fluid, exciting, and collaborative processes.

Specifications Development

Working with our team of designers and specialists ensures that every detail is meticulously defined. All interior and exterior finishes are cataloged in a design book that ensures the integrity of your vision and the appropriate budgets are well communicated.

Budget and Schedule Development

While the project is being architecturally and structurally designed, in parallel with the solidification of interior details, our team is consistently working on budgets, updates, and scheduling. In addition to in-person communication, we work through our building management software, Co-Construct, to maintain clarity with our clients. This software tool allows our clients to have full view of the critical path and details surrounding their dream home. Digitally and personally, our communication practices produce straight-forward clarity encompassing all the features of development, such as the selection of plumbing fixtures, tiles, cabinets, windows, appliances and more. Our methods ensure that clients and your home-building team have any answer at the reach of their fingertips.

Project Management

Our Project Managers have years of experience. They are passionately involved in the early aspect of the design process and are fully invested before the project even breaks ground. Once your dream home is underway, our Project Managers track all aspects of the job – from scheduling, daily logs, expenses, billings, inspections, and more – to create a seamless build experience. Together with our office team and software tools, you can expect updates and progress photos on a continuous basis as your vision is built from the ground-up!
