The Construction Process

Selection Timeline

This document is to outline the general timeline for the selection of certain items for your new home.  The timeline is designed to give the customer a deadline for the selection process to keep the project on schedule.  Any delay in the selection process will ultimately delay the completion date for your new home.  It is the customer’s responsibility to meet the outlined time frame so the materials will be available in time for installation.  It is a team effort between builder, customer and subcontractors to deliver the new home on time and on budget.  We hope this information will help you during this exciting period.  Thank you for selecting Centerline Custom Homes.  

This is not an all inclusive list for the items required for selection.  The stated deadlines from contract signing are the maximum time limit.  Please select all the items as soon as possible to help with scheduling and delivery timing.
