THE HAGSTROM PROCESS

The best projects always begin with great collaboration between our client and their architect, interior designer, landscape architect, and Hagstrom Builder. Our Process allows each team member to exercise what they do best: create, problem solve, and value-engineer so that our clients end up with an infinitely better home for their dollar spent.

"Our experience with Hagstrom Builder was fabulous. Peter and the staff's experience and care showed at every step in the process. I recommend Hagstrom Builder to any and all who are considering building or remodeling."
- Eric H.

DREAM

Pursuing your dream home starts with imagination. Go ahead and dream big! Consider designs you love and your lifestyle. Jot down the vision of your family’s desires and how you would like to use your new home. Collect notes, photos, and examples of looks that inspire and thrill you. Your ideas will help your architect clarify your tastes and define your own distinctive style.

DISCOVERY

Your dream starts to take form! We’ll help you determine if that dream matches your budget by providing a Discovery Estimate to use as a starting point. We can also ensure you have the right team for your project by referring you to an architect who is compatible with your style and has the experience to accurately interpret your needs. (Or, we can seamlessly join your project already in progress.)

DESIGN

This is where the magic happens, as your team gathers to collaborate, bringing together your vision and plotting the creative plan to paper for the first time. Hagstrom homes are architecturally designed. No two are alike. Modern, traditional, transitional, farmhouse, or something in between... your dream home will be uniquely authentic to your sense of style.

DRAFT

We refine your plans, carefully considering structural choices, material selections, new technologies, energy efficiency requirements, and codes against your budget. During this stage you will see how a well-informed architect joining forces with an experienced builder can save you time and money. Our goal is always to get the design right before we pound one nail.

DECISIONS

Communication with us and your architect is in full swing. We always want our clients to enjoy the process, and we’re known for our calm approach as you make decisions on materials, colors, finishes, and more. You’ll see that translating 2-D drawings into 3-D construction—while tracking scheduling expectations and your budget—is another area where we shine.

DEVELOPMENT

From construction to plumbing, carpentry to landscaping, we only work with top-notch, vetted subcontractors. Our ability to execute cutting-edge, complex design is second to none, and we hold our entire crew to quality and timely coordination. Our commitment to communication means you will be involved and well informed on any changes to your project. No shortcuts. Ever.

DETAILS

After all the planning and construction is complete, it’s finally time to make this house your home (or enjoy your newly remodeled space)! As we wrap up a project, we hold to a multi-point inspection of the interior and exterior, double checking for our highest standard of quality on all foundations, flooring, fixtures, and finishes. Our eyes are on even the smallest details.

DEPENDABILITY

For more than 50 years, our clients have trusted us to stand behind our work, whether it’s at their one-year walk-through or long after a job is complete. Our dependability is one of the reasons we have such a high percentage of repeat business. We’re always available to pick up the phone and answer your questions. As Peter says, “by the end of a project, our clients are part of the family.”

No Shortcuts. Ever.
