How Can We Benefit You?

Large Network of Subcontractors
One of the biggest benefits of hiring Gryphon Builders is that we have a large network of highly skilled subcontractors working for us. This ultimately speeds up the project timeline. We know how to effectively manage subcontractors to ensure that the project is completed efficiently.

Client Portal for Project Management System
Building your dream design is an exciting endeavor, and Gryphon Custom Homes wants the process to be as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
That is why we provide each of our clients with access to a secure website with all of the details of their project. Whether you are at home, at work, on the road, or on vacation, Gryphon Custom Homes puts information at your fingertips about your selections, upgrades, financial decisions, questions, documents, photos, and more.

Singular Point of Contact
Since Gryphon oversees every aspect of your project, we’ll have a complete grasp on the scope, timeline, and budget of the project and will keep you informed throughout the entire process. Whenever you have a question, you will know exactly who to call.

More Affordable
Choosing Gryphon means that you’ll save big on several different costly items. Any general contractors worth your money should have a large network of suppliers who provide materials at a discounted rate. We are preferred sellers when as we have developed trusted relationships with our suppliers in the industry throughout the years, which allows us to provide a lower rate.

Phase 1: Meet

View your lot to discuss building options: 2-4 WEEKS

Your first step is simple. It begins with talking to experts who can help you turn your ideas into reality. During your initial meetings with Gryphon Custom Homes, you will share your ideas and dreams with us as we guide you through productive conversations in the following areas:

  • Your Lot
  • Your Plan
  • Your Budget

We start with a list of your Needs, Wants and Wishes to get a sense of what is most important to you. You may need a first floor Owner’s Suite; you may want a tile shower and soaking tub; you may wish that it can all be done in a beautiful tile you found online. Whatever is on that list, we spend the time to fine tune it with you so that your new home is truly yours.

Phase 2: Design

We approach designing your home in two ways. 1) Choose from a proven and trusted Gryphon Plan or 2) Design-Build your home from the ground up.

1. GRYPHON PLAN: 2-4 Weeks

Choosing from one of our popular planscan make the Design Stage go a little faster while still offering the opportunity to make the Plan meet your Needs, Wants and Wishes. YOU control the details and add your personal touches: a bump out here, a window there, maybe add that screen porch you’ve always wanted – the options are endless.

2. DESIGN-BUILD: 6-16 Weeks

A Design-Build project involves designing your home from scratch; putting Your Ideas and Our Expertise together to maximize how the home sits on the land and make it just right for YOU. This approach will take a little more time and effort and adds an additional step with signing the Design-Build Agreement. But the end result is a home to truly call your own.

Either approach you choose, you can expect the following as part of the process of planning your new home on paper.

  • Start with a Price for a Turn-Key Version of your Home
  • See Plans, Price, and Specifications as they adapt to Your Modifications
  • View Plans with a Site Plan to See the Big Picture!
  • Finalize the Bigger Details and Sign the Construction Contract
  • Select Your Home’s Finishes with Expert Guidance

OPTIONS & SELECTIONS: 6-8 Weeks

After you sign the Construction contract, you will begin Options & Selections (O & S) and it is one of the most impactful parts of the Design Stage. You are guided through choosing the personal touches of your new home. An often complicated and frustrating part of building a home is made easy and fun. We visit our vendors together to bring your vision to life – whether in person or remotely. From big picture items like siding and shingle colors, to the minute details of a beautifully tiled shower, dog wash station or perfectly crafted pantry shelves, you are led through the O & S Process with expertise and personalized attention that is second to none.

Every Selection you make is carefully detailed in the Pricing Summation, Plans and Specifications so when it comes time to build your home, you can sit back and relax, and watch it all come to life.

Phase 3: Build

DURATION: 18-32 WEEKS

Our Process is to build your home on paper on purpose before we build it in 3D. This allows everyone to think through and decide on items that can otherwise derail a construction schedule. We can confidently provide you with the prompt delivery of your completed home as a result of all of the efforts taken before we start construction.

You have carefully made all of the Selections for your new home, and you have cast your vision. Now it’s time to sit back, relax and watch your home become a 3D reality.

How to Get Started

Nail down a budget

The most important aspect of the planning process is ensuring you have enough money to pay for the project, regardless of how big or small the scope of work may be. Curious about what it may cost? Set up a free consultation with our team!

Set Out Your Project Goals

It's important to know what you want to achieve with your renovation and why. If you're renovating to avoid moving, the work you do now should still service your needs in a few years' time. Think about how many bedrooms and bathrooms and how much living space you'll need in the future, particularly if you have a growing family.

Everything was great. The work was excellent. The price was reasonable and the guys were great. I would be happy to hire Gryphon again or recommend to anyone!

Barbara M.
Home Owner

Gryphon did a great job. They were very reliable and even finished early! I would definitely work with them again.

Arron M.
Home Owner

Outstanding! They were on time and professional.

Amy D.
Home Owner

My husband serves in the Army on the other side of the country and had not been home for 6 months. Gryphon Custom Homes was asked to complete my renovation of my entire first floor including my kitchen along with my master bedroom and bathroom before my husband came home to surprise our kids. They were neat and despite the rain, uncovering the damaged sill plate, lack of soffit venting, and a difficult door opening they completed the work on time. They communicated the phases and difficulties along the way and made sure I inspected the work. They contacted me the day after completion to follow up with my satisfaction. I couldn’t have asked for a better crew and experience.

Lisa & Greg Manning
Home Owner

Thank you so much for all of your hard work building our new home. It turned out so beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with it… The whole process was so smooth, easy and fun for us because of how fantastic you all were.
