Custom Homes

The Building Process

Our experience in building quality custom homes has enabled us to encounter many important aspects about the construction process. Good communication is key, therefore we want the client involved in every step of the way!

Let's Get Started...


Step 1: Where should I build?

The building site for your new beautiful home is just as important as the home itself. Making sure the area, community, and especially the specific location is key to ensuring total home satisfaction.

Tom Watson Construction has a great inventory of available home sites that are ready to build on. Being a builder in Central Arkansas for 35+ years also gives Tom a great knowledge of potential home sites. An alternative is to build your new home on property that you already own!


Step 2: What type of design do I want?

The design elements that go into the planning phase of the process are so vital to the overall success of building your home. In this area, we take our time and use our experience to advise you and assist you to ensure we deliver the best.

Listening to your ideas, wants and needs as a team, we are able to create that exceptional and unique custom plan. We have a large inventory of plans to use as a starting point for ideas. We also welcome our clients to bring in plans that they’ve designed or are interested in. Creativity and function is key!


Step 3: What can I expect my budget to be?

As with all of our clients the "financial comfort zone" is important. We understand how essential it is to not only find the right location and design, but ensure the home fits your financial goals as well. The budget is an integral part of the building process at our company. We have an easy to follow budgeting format that allows you to stay informed of all the financial aspects during the construction of your home. We communicate often to ensure that you are satisfied with the customized plan we develop.


Step 4: Now, let's design!

It’s the little details that are so important. Little things make big things happen! We focus on understanding what you want in your new project, and then deliver those desires with the highest standards possible. Being creative and innovative, we provide an easy to follow selection process to guide you through the decisions needed. Staying current with the latest innovations in the home energy efficiency is also high on our list of home building.

Our local vendors and suppliers are ready to assist you with your all of your choices as well as our team at Tom Watson Construction.

Step 5: Construction Time

The construction phase is where it all the planning and design comes together.
Tom Watson has a proven crew of subcontractors and craftsmen who value customer satisfaction, honesty, and the importance of details. Our production staff is on site and supervises progress, details, and a quality end result.

Throughout the construction phase, we provide homeowners with a walk through at the job site explaining the unique components of the home.

We provide clients with completion schedules that detail and time the completion and move in.
Tom Watson Construction also provides you with a builder’s home warranty detailing warrantable items after closing and moving in.

Our team values construction you can count on!
