Day 1

Contract Signing

So you’ve decided to buy a new home from The Jones Company.  Congratulations – you’re one step closer to home!  This is a day to remember.


Within a couple days of signing your contract, you should expect a phone call from one of our Design Studio team members to assist you in setting up your Design Studio appointment.  It is very important that we get this critical step on the calendar so that we can begin the process of building your new Jones home!

Days 1-9

Browse for Ideas

It starts with “home” work, which gives you the opportunity to let your imagination run wild. By gathering up inspiration and ideas, we’ll have a great base to work from as we move further into the design process.


We invite you to browse our Houzz Account, use Pinterest, and most importantly, visit our Design Studio on the weekends to start gathering your ideas.


During this time, you’ll also want to print out our Browsing Checklist.

Days 2-10

Final Ordering

All your planning comes to an end, and you start to imagine your new home in its entirety.  During this time is when you’ll meet with your Sales Manager to finalize your selections and complete your “Start Order”.


Once you’ve completed this step, the wheels will start in motion on your new home!

Day 14+

Design Appointment

It’s show time!  We’ll gather for a comprehensive (and fun) discussion at our Design Studio, where we’ll choose the exact details and style you want for your future home using real-life samples right at your fingertips.  From exterior siding colors to cabinetry, we’ll really dial into your unique style.


Aside from this you’ll also need to schedule an appointment with a low voltage rep during this time. Not sure what this is? Don’t worry! We can help.


Don’t forget to print out our Browsing Checklist.  You’ll definitely want this for your appointment.

Day 10-21

Your Unique Home

Your start order has just been completed, and now, like little elves, we get to work on all the “behind the scenes” work on your new Jones home.  During this time, we will work on creating the personalized blueprint of your own unique home, drawn to reflect exactly what you have asked us to include!


Many builders use a standard blueprint and just mark it up, but we draw each home to your exact specifications. There are a few steps we need to take in order to be awarded a permit to get started on the construction of your new home:

  1. A designer will craft the construction drawings for your unique home
  2. Have the foundation and frame package designed
  3. Have the plot plan drawn for your home site
  4. Request the building permit from your local municipality
Days 30-45

Construction Begins

This is when you’ll begin to see your home start to really take shape! Your ideas and all your planning goes from “2D to 3D” during this time! You’ll soon begin to see a foundation, and walls, and so much more.

*An important note: The average time it takes to receive a permit is 30 days, however it can take a little longer so please be patient during this time. Trust us, it will be worth it.

The Details Matter

Uncovering what makes your house a home is at the heart of what we do in the new Jones Design Studio. All those little details, from fixtures to drawer pulls, trim colors to flooring, come together to build your personalized masterpiece home.
