Our Process


Over the years, the professionals at Harrington Homes have developed a home building process that has been praised by its customers.

The process is highly collaborative. We work hand-in-hand with our customers and our vendors to make the process of building a new home as positive and fruitful as possible.  We have found that our most important job while a prospect is considering our company is to make sure that everyone understands what is included,  how much the total project will cost and what they might expect to spend for  additional items they may be interested in.

In general, our process prior to contract includes:

  1. Review of locations, plans and options
  2. Blueprint development, design and customization decisions or the selection of one of our existing plans (which also can me modified).  This is also a time when we will want to discuss any specialty items such as ceiling beams and treatments, custom stone , tile, custom built ins or trim work etc.
  3. Pricing/estimating, contract and financing.  Once we sign the contract we prepare the construction drawings, energy review and order a plot plan (which show the location of the home on the property with set backs noted.


Once you are our customer we:

  1. Conduct a pre-construction meeting where we do a final plan review with you, verify all contract items are noted on the plans and actually start the selection process.
  2. During this selection process Michael will help you select anything from cabinetry, fixtures, flooring, colors, hardware and others.

Once we begin construction, Michael will update you while building your home or you can call the office and speak with Lisa or Karen directly to get a construction schedule update.


Once your new home is complete, we conduct a new home orientation and then complete with our thorough inspection process.
