Online Access Throughout Your Home Building Experience
Deciding to build your own home is a big decision in itself. As one might imagine, choosing a builder can be equally challenging. After all, you’re trusting their team with one of your biggest investments! Working with the right builder will ensure that you have a pleasant experience from start to completion and that the final result is just how you envision it.
At Hearthside Homes, our goal is to make the home building experience as fun and easy as possible! In recent years, we’ve been able to incorporate technology into our process. This helps streamline communication between our team and each homeowner. Unlike some home builders, we want you to feel involved throughout the construction phase! We understand how exciting this milestone is and we want you to be involved throughout the experience.
We’ve been building homes for Kansas City families for over three decades. Since 2012, we’ve utilized BuilderTrend to keep our clients up to date with the progress of their homes. When you work with Hearthside Homes, you’ll be granted access to an exclusive online portal. We’ll update you frequently with photos and the completion schedule. Not only does this give our clients peace of mind, but it also allows them to monitor the progress of their home. In this blog post, we’re sharing a few reasons why our clients love this online experience and how it differentiates us from other home builders.
Stay In The Loop
Now that you’ve picked out a floor plan and made your material selections, it’s time to sit back and watch your beautiful new home come to life! Some home builders keep their clients in the dark during the construction phase. At Hearthside Homes, we want our clients to feel involved throughout the building process. We understand that a home is a major purchase and that you likely want frequent updates. By utilizing BuilderTrend, we’re able to connect our homeowners with the construction team. As progress gets made on the house, homeowners can expect frequent photos. This allows you to watch the progress of the installations from your phone or computer. Over the years, our clients have continuously raved about this online tool. We’re thrilled that BuilderTrend allows our team to stay connected with our clients while providing them with photographic proof of the progress of the home.
Understanding The Timeline
From start to finish, Hearthside Homes can usually complete a house in just six months! As one might imagine, there are a lot of moving parts when it comes to building a home. Not only do several different construction teams need to work together, but they all have to be on the same page. Each aspect of the home has to be completed in a specific order. The construction timeline needs to be organized so that one installation doesn’t interfere with another. For example, you wouldn’t install a toilet before the paint is on the walls. Similarly, a kitchen installation has several phases that need to be completed in a particular order.
Before we even begin digging at the site, our project management team has created a detailed timeline based on the scope of work. Sure, there might be a few minor delays due to inclement weather or unforeseen events, but the timeline can provide a fairly accurate completion date. We believe in being transparent, and therefore share the timeline with our clients on BuilderTrend. By doing so, our customers have a good understanding of each phase of the construction process. Not to mention, the timeline keeps our customers up to date with any delays or advancements on the project.
Keeping Track of Change Orders
You many choose to alter or upgrade some of your material selections along the way. As mentioned previously, you’ll have quite a few people working on your home! BuilderTrend allows us to keep our team on the same wavelength. If one person makes an adjustment to your account, our entire team will be notified. This eliminates the worry of whether or not everyone understands the modification. In addition, you’ll be able to approve the change order from your account. We don’t want there to be any surprises on move-in day!
A Visual Experience
More than anything, our clients love the visual experience that BuilderTrend provides. If you live locally, there’s a good chance that you’ll visit your job site a few times throughout the construction process. For others who live further away or have a hectic schedule, BuilderTrend provides peace of mind. When you build a home with our team, you’ll look forward to the photo notifications and the progress updates!
What Our Clients Say
You know what they say, “The proof is in the pudding!”. Here are some of the Google reviews we’ve received from our clients. As you’ll be able to see for yourself, BuilderTrend has been an instrumental tool for our customers.
“We had a great experience with Hearthside Homes! This was the first home I had built and I was concerned about the stress that would be associated with the process. Hearthside uses BuilderTrend, an app that keeps you updated throughout the process, and this was amazing! We had absolutely no issues at all through our entire build! Everyone at Hearthside was great – we worked most with Liz (ReeceNichols) and Lori and they were absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend building with Hearthside; they were on time and built our home in less than six months. The quality of their craftsmanship shows and we are 100% satisfied with everything in our home.” – Rachel
“I cannot say enough nice things about our experience with Hearthside Homes. From the moment we decided to build with them, I knew it was going to be a smooth process. Everyone we worked with was wonderful! Fast responses and always willing to explain the why behind any concern or promptly take care of it. Having an app with the build schedule and constant pictures was amazing. We were able to customize our house to be exactly what we wanted and now that we are in, we have fallen even more in love with it! The attention to detail on each part of our home is fantastic. If you are looking to build, Hearthside is definitely the way to go. Fast, efficient, and beautiful homes! Thank you again!!!” – Anna
“Hearthside exceeded our expectations throughout the entire building process. Every aspect of the selection process was smooth, organized, and accurate. Liz was always quick to respond to any question we had and always provided a good solution! BuilderTrend kept us informed and in the loop the entire time and Hearthside stayed true to the timeline from start to finish. Truly was a breeze which is not what we had expected when building our first home. Most importantly, our home turned out beautiful!!” – Resa
“We just recently finished our build with Heartside and we absolutely love it!! The whole building process was super easy and smooth! They have an app that they update daily if not weekly on the process of your house. And our house is just straight up beautiful and we couldn’t thank Hearthside enough for all their help, recommendations and appreciation! Definitely 100% recommend building with them!!” – Kenzy
