You know what a general contractor is, but what is a “design build firm”? Great question, because they aren’t all that common. Rarely do general contractors have dedicated designers on site, on staff, to work with the customer and draw up stunning new designs for your home or business’s new construction.
Now, at Custom Craft Builders, we go one step further. It’s not unheard of for a general contractor to have a designer(s) on their staff, but what is uncommon, is when the designer designs the new construction the way a builder builds.
Lost you there? Let us clarify.
All too often, a designer without any hands-on experience building new construction will design a visually appealing and beautiful new construction, but when it comes time for the contractor to have boots on the ground building the project, problems arise. What looks great isn’t always the best design.
Premature failure of new construction is often due to poor design and little to no thought to how the new construction will hold up to use, and the harsh Minnesota season.
