You don’t need to be a building expert to start your project with the custom home builders at Metzler. As one of the premier Central PA home builders, the area where we work encompasses all of Lancaster County. We are also honored to serve discerning clients in Lebanon County, Chester County, York County, and Dauphin County. Wherever you are, we will provide our expertise to achieve exactly the results you want in your home. The following are a few basics to get you started:
To Build a Custom Home You Need
1Your home financing:
Although it’s not necessary to have your financing secured before meeting with the team at Metzler Home Builders, it is valuable to review your finances and consider how much you are willing to invest in your new home. Building a home requires a construction loan, which is different than when you select a pre-built home. We have the expertise and resources to help guide you through the custom home building financing process.
2Your building permits:
As highly experienced custom builders, we have experience working with many municipalities within Lancaster, Lebanon, Chester, York and Dauphin counties. Metzler Home Builders will take care of getting all the appropriate permits for your custom home. Required permits when building your custom home can include not only building permits, but also sewer or septic, driveway, stormwater management, and more.
3Your custom home design:
Whether you have a fully designed set of plans, a napkin sketch or just your vision, we will work with you to develop a design. Learn more about our design / build process here.
4Your home location:
Metzler Home Builders will meet with you to discuss your project even if you don’t currently own a lot. There are plenty of considerations when choosing a lot to build your new home, and we can help guide you, refer you to local Realtor® if needed, or answer any questions you may have. We stand out among Central PA home builders, as our service area expands to approximately an hour’s drive from our office location in Lancaster. We also have building lots available, and we can assist you in finding your perfect setting.
Metzler Home Builders will take care of the details so you don’t have to. Your initial meeting will be with Jordan and / or Dan Metzler.
Construction of Your New Home
Following your initial design/build meetings with our custom homebuilding experts, and the securing of financing and permits, we’re ready to begin construction on your new home! This phase of the custom home building process includes selecting all the details, weekly communications with your project manager, and more. We encourage you to learn more about the custom home construction phase, as well as what to expect after construction of your home is completed.
