No two homes that we build are ever alike. That's because no two families are quite the same. So we begin the process by asking you a series of questions that will help further shape the vision of your new custom luxury home in Virginia, Maryland or the Washington, D.C. region.

Among the questions:

  • Where does your family spend the majority of time in your home?
  • How might your lifestyle change over the next 5 to 10 years?
  • How many children do you have and how old are they?
  • Do you prefer formal rooms or more casual spaces?
  • Do you have frequent overnight guests? Weekend visitors or long term?

With these questions answered, we're ready to move forward with the process of selecting and building your dream home. Below are a few of the major milestones in your homebuying experience.

Select Your Homesite and Design

We'll begin by reviewing floorplan options and discussing your custom selections. We'll visit potential homesites, as well as touring completed Keswick homes. We'll start preliminary home sketches and discuss pricing.

Sign the Contract and Start Planning

Once we're in agreement and the contract is signed, planning begins for architecture and grading, permits, financing and more. We'll determine kitchen design and begin the fit-and-finish selection process.

Close on the Homesite

You'll sign off on the house siting based on an on-site walk-through with your project manager. You'll also review and approve contract drawings and a timeline for home delivery.

Begin Construction

We'll walk you through the home at various points during the construction process. You'll be in constant communication with the Keswick team.

Welcome Home

During a final walk-through, we'll identify and complete punch list items. Then we'll hand you the keys to you beautiful new Keswick home.

After Completion

As part of your warranty, we'll schedule a 45- to 60-day walk-through and a 1-year walk-through to ensure that your home is everything you dreamed it would be.
