Building a custom home is a journey. Whether you’re starting from scratch or have a clear vision, our remarkable team of architects, designers and builders will guide you through the process. Here is an overview of what you can expect when you work with us:

The premier luxury home builder in Charlotte, North Carolina and surrounding areas.

Initial consultation

Meet with the Simonini Team at our design studio to discuss the vision for your new home. Your initial consultation will explore the following:

  • The first step is the location of your home. Have you acquired a home site or do you need assistance in locating one?
  • What aspects of your lifestyle do you want to be incorporated into your home?
  • What features do you envision in your home?
  • Have you established a timeframe and budget for your custom home?

Custom home estimate

During this stage, we will enter into a preconstruction agreement. Our team will develop conceptual sketches for your home, taking into consideration your vision, lifestyle, home site, budget parameters, as well as desired features and amenities. You will also meet with our design/estimating team to outline the fit and finish level for your home, which will be incorporated into a set of detailed specifications specific to your custom home. A project timeline will be established.


Review and finalize the plans and specifications for your custom home. Confirm the budget and timeline for the construction of your home. Release plans to be finalized and establish a slot in the Simonini construction schedule. Review and sign the construction agreement.


Finalized plans will be permitted and a preconstruction meeting will signify the hand off from the Simonini design/estimating team to the Simonini construction team. The construction of your home will begin. You will be assigned a log-in for the Simonini Homes Portal, providing electronic access to the following:

  • Interior and Exterior Design Selections
  • Plans
  • Permit
  • Photos
  • Accounting information
  • At the conclusion of construction, a Final Home Acceptance will signify the completion of your home. In addition, a Homeowner Orientation will take place with your builder, assuring you are acquainted with the features of your new Simonini Home.
