Our Building Process

Premier Home Builders

One of the reasons why J. Drewes is a premier builder is that we do so much more than just build beautiful luxury homes. Our team of experienced custom home builders are with you every step of the way, from initial vision to land acquisition, design, and completion.

What this means is that you shouldn’t wait to call us until you have complete architectural plans and a lot on which to build. The value we can provide multiplies if you bring us in from the start!

Land & Lot Acquisition

We use our long standing relationships with local real estate professionals to help you find the perfect lot, and then be there to ensure the site really is perfect for your needs. To confirm that your desired project is feasible we’ll do everything from bringing in consultants to reviewing city restrictions, municipal easements and much more.

Home Design

As one of the top custom home builders in Central Florida we have also built strong working relationships with the area’s premier architects and interior designers. We’ll provide introductions, matching the best fit for your proposed style and needs. Once we are retained we will collaborate closely with your architect to create a custom home that fits within all of your desired function, design and cost parameters.


Specifications Development

It’s the details that separate extraordinary new home construction from ordinary new home construction. Your Project Coordinator will create a comprehensive, all-inclusive Specifications Book cataloging every component of the project—plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, finish carpentry, paint colors and more.

Budget & Schedule Development

Your Project Coordinator will obtain subcontractor and vendor bids based on your approved Specifications Book, and then confirm the overall budget for your project. Once the project permit has been issued you’ll receive a Decision Deadline Schedule. This keeps the process from becoming overwhelming, and allows the build schedule to remain on track.

Project Management

One of the many advantages of working with a general contractor that has a large full-time staff is that it’s not just “one person trying to do everything.” Once things are underway our Team will use specialized software to track all aspects of scheduling, giving you the ability to see exactly where things stand.

Home Construction

J. Drewes is a “white glove” home builder. We handle all aspects of construction, from serving as the point of contact for all subcontractors, consultants, vendors and inspectors to resolving issues as they arise. Construction will be overseen by your Project Managers, who will be on site daily ensuring all work is done to specifications, using the highest quality building materials and techniques.


Project Completion

Our in-depth project close-out process includes a detailed walk-through to compile a final “punch list.” Professional Photos will be taken of your completed project. Upon move-in you will receive a Comprehensive Close-Out Package with copies of all manuals and warranties.
