IMG_0056

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM – AJIA

The easiest path in building a home in general is to have a  professional builder construct your new home, often called a “turn key” home.  Working with AJIA, you will be intimately involved in the planning, design, budget and material choices of the home, but then turn it over to AJIA your licensed builder, who will completely build the home and give you a set of keys when it’s finished.  This route typically obtains a home on a timeline and budget and the home is then covered under the Home Owner’s Warranty Program.

Initial consultation and document exchange regarding your property details; zoning requirements, site access, lot size and general budget estimates.
Step 2: Design & Design Contract

IMG_7578

SURVEY REQUIRED at this point. Upon successful confirmation of the build ability of your lot, the next step is to enter into a Design Contract and placing a DEPOSIT of $10,000 CAN. The design contract is a simple agreement for you to engage AJIA to customize a plan to suit your lot and lifestyle requirements. You are not committed to buying your home package from AJIA at this point, you are just agreeing to pay for design drafting hours to complete your personal plan. We do the interior and exterior design and engineering for you saving the steps of having to engage engineers and designers/architects on your own.
Step 3: Material Selection

At this stage customers select material choices for exterior finish such as siding, trim boards, roofing, exterior doors, windows, & decking etc.
Step 4: Pricing of Fixed Price Standard Package & Budget Planning

AJIA presents the FIXED PRICE FACTORY PACKAGE & then begins the BUDGET PLANNING PROCESS, which incorporates the interior design and construction side as well as the customer’s wish list of items. Our construction services team helps guide you through the general pricing of various aspects of your home build using a budget template. Budget Transparency is AJIAs goal and Owners control their own budget.
Step 5: Engineering & Permits

If customers approve the FIXED PRICE PACKAGE & General Budget Template and are prepared to order their home, the plans are then engineered and permit sets are prepared and provided 2 weeks after the signing of the CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT.

A Project Manager is then assigned and takes over the workflow of the HOUSE PACKAGE and ordering of all the materials needed. The order goes to the production floor and is typically constructed and ready for delivery in approximately 6 weeks.
Step 8: Quote for Shipping of House Package

Getting your Custom Prefab home to your site can be done in many different ways. Having good access to your property is key in receiving your AJIA Factory Package. Other Options are also available. AJIA logistics seeks the most economical transport quotes available.

  • For homeowners who are building in remote locations, a helicopter is often used to get the Factory Package onto the jobsite. This can be a very efficient and cost effective option surprisingly.
