Getting Started

From design to completion: 
Heres how we work together…

Torel Custom Homes allows you to enjoy the process of creating a home just for you. Here’s an outline of our home-building process.

HOME TOUR: Chris Tortorello will accompany you on a tour of some of our homes to give you a feel for our designs. This is time for us to get to know each other and for us to fnd out what you may be looking for in a custom home.

MEETING AT THE LOT: Chris will meet with you at your property and walk the lot. This is a critical part of the process, since it’s where much of the inspiration for your design will begin.

THE DESIGN INTERVIEW: After weve drawn up our agreement to work together, we will then take an inventory of your needs for your new home. From general information like the number of bedrooms to finishes and flooring, we’ll make sure every detail is covered.

PRELIMINARY PLANS: After the design interview, we’ll start on preliminary plans that show the foor plan and elevations (the exterior view) for your review. Once these are confrmed, we’ll proceed with the construction drawings, the final blueprints of your home.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION CONFERENCE: Before we break ground, we’ll talk again to review the details of the project. This is one more opportunity to make sure we have everything coordinated correctly.

BUILDING: Chris Tortorello and his project management team personally oversee the building of your house on a daily basis, and keep in constant contact to let you know how things are going. If you’re out of town, we’ll send digital photos to let you track the progress of your house as if you were here. Our diligent communication ensures you’ll enjoy total peace of mind as your dream takes shape.

Its all yours! Your house is complete, but our work doesn’t end here. Torel offers a 2-year builders warranty, and we’re available to address any questions that arise related to the construction of your home.
