  • How Long Does It Take To Design A Custom Home?
    There are several steps in designing a custom home, as you can see below. A lot of these items are happening in the background during a design so our clients can focus on the fun stuff, designing and choosing what goes in your home. We generally say that to get from concept to a finalized design that is ready to secure a building permit generally takes anywhere between 4 months for Architecture and Engineering to submit to the building department and 4-12 months to get through permitting review and permit approval. This is heavily dependent on the size and type of project.
  • How long does it take to build a custom home?
    The time to build a custom home depends on many factors such as site development, size of home, complexity of the build and a client’s ability to make timely decisions. Additionally, weather can affect how long it takes to build. A general time frame to build a custom home based on size are: 2,000-5,000 sq ft: 12-13months 5,000-8,000 sq ft: 13-18months 8,000-10,000+ sq ft: 18-22 months+
  • What is a design & build contractor?
    A design/build contractor is a turn-key home delivery company where a single entity delivers the design and construction of a home. Having a cohesive team of experts at every stage of the design and build of a new home helps the client design a project that is feasible to actually build from a logistics and budget perspective.
  • Can we use our own Architect?
    Yes. Even though we are a design & build company we will gladly build a home designed by another architect. We strongly urge you to consider using our design team though to help keep you within budget and to make sure everything is designed to local building codes.
  • How will we communicate throughout the process?
    Communication is established to the client’s preference. Some like to communicate by phone, by email, by text, or in-person.
  • Will you build on my lot?
    Yes. We build wherever our clients take us. We can build on your lot almost anywhere in Denver metro Area of Colorado. Call us to discuss the details of your lot. If you need assistance in locating a lot we can help!
  • What do I get to choose in the home?
    Everything! With a custom home you will have the opportunity to choose everything that goes inside your new home. Our interior designer will be by your side every step of the way to suggest ideas and to advise you if your selections are exceeding the budget or may not flow with other selections, but at the end of the day it is your home so you choose anything you want.
  • I want to design & build, where do I start?
    Call us or schedule a consultation! Call and talk with LUX Builders Manager, Austin Schmidt. We will discuss your project location, style, budget and timing. If you feel it could be a good fit we will schedule an in-person meeting to get into more detail. After the in-person meeting we will walk your lot with you or assist in locating one.
  • What is your square foot price to build a custom home?
    We are asked this question nearly every day. Because every LUX Builders design and build is unique unto itself it is nearly impossible to answer this. After spending sometime meeting with you we can narrow the number down; based on information you have shown or told us to determine your house size, potential development cost on your lot and conceptual finish level.
  • What makes LUX Builders unique?
    While there are many aspects of our business that always makes us the best choice, there are three things that make us stand out the most. Our unique bidding/estimation strategy is one of a kind and provides our clients with the maximum amount of transparency while providing them with unparalleled flexibility. We have spent hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars on researching and implementing technology that makes the whole construction process more streamlined and easy to track. From communication technology to scheduling calendars, our clients will always know what is happening at their project no matter when or where they are. About 80% of the labor on our clients' projects is sub-contracted. This isobviously not unique, however, having been involved in the industry foralmost two decades we have built relationships with people who do whatthey say they will do. Additionally, we will only use sub-contractors whohave successfully completed multiple projects for us or have been referredto us directly! They are also all licensed and insured as necessary.
