At Norman Building & Design (NBD) we build dream homes, not houses. Our work reflects a deep commitment to the relationships we develop with our customers over the lifetime of their homes and often beyond. As a testament of that relationship many of our clients have returned to build with us again as their family needs or their lifestyles evolve. Perhaps the biggest compliment we receive is when the children of those same clients call and ask us to build their new family home.
For more than 40 years Norman Building & Design has focused on building dream homes and trust with clients from Sunriver to Black Butte Ranch, Tetherow to Pronghorn and every place in between. We don't see ourselves as builders we see ourselves as partners in your home and strive to honor that relationship with every client.
It starts in the initial conversation, often on the phone and develops through visits to your building site and subsequent meetings (in person, online and over the phone) where the NBD team spends the time to get to know you, your family and your desires for your Central Oregon home and lifestyle.
This relationship, based on open communication is the foundation for the initial design sketches and continues to drive the design of your home from handshake to the hand-off of keys.
Moving from concept sketches to the computer where we begin to translate everything we know about your dream home into floor plans and elevations. This is where we begin to see the flow, rooms and visual design cues of your new home in greater detail.
In partnership with our design team you will explore the exterior style of your home from modern, to traditional, lodge to PNW Contemporary. We will begin to look at exterior treatments, such as stone placement, exposed timbers or clean line panel systems and steel beams as we move your dream from planning to pricing.
With your floor plan, exterior elevations and home style in place, it's time to start thinking about price and building schedules. At Norman we do things a bit differently - instead of providing you with a ballpark estimate that often neglects things like permit costs, excavation, and interior design - like most "cost plus builders" do - we prefer to spend the upfront time quoting the total project. This step provides a timeline for the build, giving you the tools to plan for the construction costs as well as move in dates. We don't like financial surprises and we assume you don't either...
Before the very first shovel ever hits the ground on your new home our interior design team will begin the processes of walking you through the hundreds of interior design selections including custom cabinetry, plumbing, lighting and paint colors.
Every selection is hand curated by our interior design team based on discussions with you, brining your dream home to life.
