Have you thought of building a custom home but been overwhelmed by the looming process? What if you could work with a builder with every service you need under one roof? Ah, a glimmer of hope.

“One of the challenges of custom building is always managing the building process for the client so it’s not overwhelming,” says Jocelyn Dienst, managing partner of Dienst Custom Homes. “We aim to make it enjoyable ending in a sense of fulfillment for the owner.”

This detail-oriented builder offers more than 23 years of experience; Dienst is unique in offering everything from design to construction services and selection services for the process; they also offer landscaping hand-in-hand with one of their valued contractors. Many builders leave the selection of items such as cabinets, tile, and all elements up to the client to go out and choose. Not Dienst.

“We feel our job is to manage everything for our client, and the day when their house is done and we go to the closing table they know exactly where each penny has gone. No surprises!” Jocelyn says. “By designating the designer to be owner’s eyes and ears we can design a home that stays in line for design and costs, as well as being as distinct and unique as the owner. We are the reality check for clients to keep them on point.”

T he plan called for an extensive endeavor. “The scope of the project was an entire house transformation in all areas of the home—while the family was still living there,” DiFabion relates. Careful planning generated a detailed schedule. While one area of the home was under construction,another was preserved so the home remained habitable.

B efore signing a contract, “homeowners should be certain the company has a system in place that ensures a well-run project that produces the quality they expect,” DiFabion advises. A certified remodeler by the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI), the award-winning company assigns a full-time production manager to each job. “It’s important to have not only accurate estimates but also anticipatory scheduling throughout the project, so the homeowner isn’t left with any surprises,” he says…
