Custom Build Process

Custom Build Process

As a custom builder, Rutledge Builders strives to make each custom built home experience one that is accommodating and stress-free.  Over the years, we have streamlined and perfected our process, so each customer receives a very straightforward approach to building their home.  With multiple steps it can sometimes be difficult to keep up with your builder and the progress.  You can expect Rutledge Builders to be fully engaged throughout the process from planning to closing. 

Rutledge Builders will assist in locating a lot for your home, or build on your previously purchased land.  We have worked throughout Northwest Louisiana (Shreveport, Bossier City, Benton, Blandchard, Coushatta, and Stonewall to name a few) as well as Northeast Texas (Karnack and Center) which gives us a familiartiy that will help you find the perfect location for your new home.  We can also transform your vision into a custom floor plan; turning your dream home into a reality.  This reality will come with no financial surprises; before, during or after the house is built.  Rutledge Builders estimates all necessary expenses before the build begins so that there are no surprises along the way. By making all selections prior to groundbreaking, the build process is more efficient and cost effective.  Your dream home will be completed in 3-5 months, depending on the square footage.

In addition to building lasting relationships with our customers, we have established strong, working relationships with our subcontractors.  This mutually beneficial relationship allows for efficiency, consistency and most importantly, constant communication between the Rutledge team and all subcontractors.
