Our Building Process

Helping Kirkland Families Build Their Dream Homes

We know that custom home building can be a daunting project to take on. When you partner with Tennyson Homes you are choosing a company that will guide you through the entire design and build process, putting your interests first. From our initial meeting to the last day on the job, we provide our clients with clear communication and a seamless process, making their life easier. 

Thanks to our experienced team of design professionals, architects, and contractors, we have a deep understanding of every aspect of the custom building process. Whatever your vision, our process will bring it to life for you and your family. Our goal is to help you build your forever home.

We build more than houses.
We build homes.

Quality Over Quantity

Here’s How We Would Build Yours:


Land Acquisition

The first step to our custom home building process is land acquisition. If you already own land, amazing! Need a lot for your home? We work with a network of professionals who can help you find the best location for your forever home. While we find your perfect piece of land, your project process can begin!

Lot Inspections

The second step in this process is an on-site lot inspection. We visit your prospective lot and answer any questions about configuration, size, zoning guidelines, building regulations, views, and more. This will help us take all necessary building considerations into account and assess the feasibility of the project.

Pre-Design Meetings

Preparation is key when it comes to building your custom home. That’s why we meet with your architect as early in this process as possible – it’s an essential element to building a home that you love. If you don't have an architect we have a network of trusted professionals ready to help. In these meetings, we will also bring in any other job-specific professionals needed for your future home. Also at this time, the scope of your project and budget is established.

Ongoing Plan Review

We assist our clients in reviewing architectural drawings, schematic drawings, site plans, specification details, and any other plans that are needed to build their dream home. Budgeting and cost information is provided throughout our ongoing process to help our clients make informed decisions.

Pre-Construction Reviews

Tennyson Homes help our clients with making selections and specifying materials for your project. From cabinets to lighting to plumbing fixtures, our professional suppliers and design experts are ready to assist you to pick out every detail of your future home. A detailed specification document will outline all your selections, so you have quick and easy access to all the information you need.

Construction Management & Cost Information

During the building phase, communication is key. Our team always provides professional high touch communication with our clients throughout every phase of construction. When you work with us, you always receive real-time project information and updates ensuring that you are always aware of our timeline.

Enjoy Your Forever Home

The day you have been waiting for has finally arrived! You can now sit back and relax and enjoy your amazing new home! We know you are going to love it, down to every last custom detail. Our team is here for you long after you move in. Cheers to your future!
