Your house is more than a home. Sometimes it’s a venue, sometimes it’s a place of business, and a lot of times it’s where you watch babies take their first steps, or bring home their first boyfriend or girlfriend. That is to say that you want to plan to be there for a long time—making memories, hosting get-togethers, growing with your family, and relaxing. So at Home Care Contractors, we offer a wide selection of custom floor plans to fit the size and budget of the dream house that you will call home for years to come. Whether you’re looking at a one-story home, three-story, or anything else, we can help you from planning all the way through to putting your key into the front door for the first time.
We are Seattle custom home builders, but also residents, and we understand the neighborhoods and communities that our homes are built in. Our houses are carefully designed around the homeowners and the environment they will be living in, and how the structure of their home interacts with the environment, from the curb to the backyard.
The Process Of Building Your New Home
First, we come out to the location where you plan on building your home to make a professional assessment of the area, and to get a sense of the environment and neighborhood. We assess the area for potential issues and challenges, and come up with effective and creative solutions for those challenges. Once we have made a thorough assessment, the construction site is prepared for building.
Pouring the foundation is the first step. After that, a rough frame is built. This is usually one of the most exciting parts for the homeowners to witness, as their dream home becomes a tangible reality. We love the excitement that homeowners bring to the construction site, and are happy to answer any questions that they have along the way. In fact, open communication is one of our top priorities at Home Care Contractors. We want you to see and share in the excitement of this process, and love watching families anticipate seeing the final product.
The next step is installing the entire HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system, as well as plumbing and the electrical system. We have a team of master tradesmen in various areas, such as residential commercial electricians, who will install these systems so you can enjoy a safe and energy-efficient home. As new home builders in Seattle, we know how important insulation is to residents here in cold and wet Washington, so we install that as well, in order to meet your safety and comfort needs throughout the lifetime of the home.
The next part is installing drywall. This is another point in the construction process that homeowners love, because it starts to feel a lot more tangible, and you can start to get a better visualization of what your hallways and rooms will look like; however it’s still far from complete. We then install exterior doorways and areas, and after these have all been completed, we move on to finishing the interior and exterior portions of the home. This includes painting, texturing, adding crown molding, sealing bathrooms and other areas that will tend to get wet, installing flooring, and fixtures such as ceiling fans and lights. This is where fine detail work of our expert tradesmen comes in to give you a polished, lovely home.
Installing countertops and other permanent fixtures takes place after the painting and polishing. Since the painting can create a lot of dust and tiny particles, we wait until the paint has dried and you’re satisfied with the look of the rooms and the texturing work before bringing in appliances, mirrors, and other fixtures.
We then finish the exterior—including landscaping—and the interior. Any electrical systems that need to be set up outside, such as lights in a pool or on a deck, will also be installed and tested for safety at this time.
The timeline for how long each of these steps takes will depend on several factors, such as the size of the project and weather conditions. Give us a call and tell us more about your plans and your timeline. From there, we can give you a more confident estimate for your particular home building project, and provide you more details in writing that are catered specifically to your needs.
We are happy to share our portfolio of custom new homes built in Seattle with you upon request. We have a variety of models for you to consider. We take pride in all of our projects, which all showcase our commitment to enduring quality and exquisite attention to detail.

Customer Satisfaction Is Our Priority
At Home Care Contractors, we have a 99% 5-star customer satisfaction rating across all the major online rating platforms. Not only do we take customer service seriously, but we also prioritize customer transparency and communication. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with our work, we will send a technician or master tradesman out immediately to assess and repair the issue.
But we also strive to maintain an open line of communication between our contractors and homeowners. Again, we love seeing the excitement people have as they visit the construction site of their new home. We also understand that this is a stressful undertaking, and you have other aspects of your life that you don’t want affected by such a major project. That’s why we give you our satisfaction guarantee, and our commitment to keeping you in the loop at all times, and being available to answer questions.
