Our Process

Ready to Design-Build a Custom Mountain Home?

At Discovery House Homes, we guide you, step-by-step, through each phase of the home building journey.


Building a home can be stressful and tedious. Without the right building partner, you may look back on the process with regret. That will not happen with Discovery House Homes. Let’s meet in person so we can share our unique process with you—how we make each step in your custom home build simple, fun, and efficient. We’ll also take the time to learn more about your mountain living dreams. Many builders avoid talking about price and refuse to answer financial related questions which is not the case with us. Bring any and all questions so we can have an open and transparent conversation. You will leave with a better understanding of the building process and answers to all of your questions.

Design & Personalize

Start your Discovery House Homes journey with a custom design-build or by choosing from our portfolio of model homes, all professionally and specifically designed for mountain living. Regardless of how you want to start, our in-house design team will make any design changes you want and create your perfect mountain home; guiding you through the entire process. From floor plan development, exterior and interior design, and all interior finishes, we make the process simple and fun. After designing your Discovery House Home, you can start the personalization process with our design consultant. The end result is a tailored mountain home tailored to you and your family.

Final Price

Price transparency starts the first time we meet with a detailed budget discussion. Once we have completed the design of your Discovery House Home, we will start the formal pricing process. At the conclusion of this stage, you will receive a fixed cost price along with a detailed outline of all specifications and allowances for your move-in ready home.

Construction Contract

No games, no surprises, and no “gotcha” moments. At Discovery House Homes, we use a fixed cost contract with allowances which limits your financial risk and protects you against market price fluctuations. After the contract is approved, we begin ordering materials, obtain all necessary permits, and start construction within approximately 60 days. It is now time to build your Discovery House Home!


At Discovery House Homes, we do not cut corners or hide anything behind the walls. Other builders will charge you upgrade prices for the quality and craftsmanship that Discovery House Homes provides standard. Trust, experience, long-term trade partner relationships, and transparency matter when building a home in the mountains, and this is exactly what we deliver. Discovery House Homes follows rigorous internal quality standards which meet or exceed the standards established by the county and industry guidelines.


When you build a Discovery House Home, you build a relationship, one that doesn’t end once you receive the keys. High quality… On time… On budget… Your custom-built Discovery House Home is ready for move‐in and it is time to celebrate! With the keys to your new home comes peace of mind. We’re honored to welcome you as neighbors to our beloved mountains.
