Martin Construction Inc. highly recommends that you get engaged with your builder as earlier in the design construction process as Possible. We recommend you get the builder involved in the plan design stage so he can help you maximize your dollar and help develop a detailed set of plans, which is the back bone for any construction process. A detailed set of plans takes all the "Guess Work" out of the process and the customer will know what to expect.
BUDGET & SITE EVALUATION
The second phase of any building process is site selection. You must know the site with all side and set back measurements before you can ever start the plan design phase. The owner needs to know front elevations, Home owner associations restrictions and requirements as well as annual dues requirements. We will talk more about budget under the mortgage process.
CUSTOM HOME BUILDING
Martin Construction Inc. has been in the residential construction business since 2001, and has built homes within the price range from 250,000-1.2 million. The majority of our custom homes in the last 3 years have been 450K-750K. Designs range from elaborate 2-story front elevations, complete with walk in showers, master dream closets with elaborate shelf and cabinet design. Today's market is looking for a well-designed and laid out out-door kitchen for good southern cookouts, which are designed around swimming pools or a well landscaped back yard. Each design is unique to a specific home and the homeowner's likes. We work very closely with the homeowner from start to finish.
PLAN DESIGN CONSULTATIONS
Martin Construction Inc. is contacted many times by customers who have no plans and are looking for assistance in developing their plans. We assist them in this process by referring them to an Architect or Plan Designer that fits their design ideas. We work very closely with the customer and the architect/designer in developing plans maximizing the square footage available, with high curb appeal and a design that flows for the customer.
REMODELING (1K SQFT+)
Martin Construction Inc. is primarily a new custom or spec home builder. We have taken on several large scale remodeling jobs where a customer prefers to stay in their existing home rather than sell and buy a new home. The owners in Martin Construction Inc. are Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) and can provide complete remodeling for the baby-boomers who want to stay in their homes.
We also cover large remodeling, storm related jobs, or customers who just want to remodel their homes to update to today's modern interior design. We have worked closely with many insurance companies and are familiar with their estimating process and documentation required by each company.
DEMOLITION (RELATED TO BUILD)
Martin Construction Inc. offers a complete turn-key-job for custom homes. Sometimes this involves demolition of an existing structure on the property as well as removal of trees, shrubs, etc. We are fully licensed and insured and require our sub-contractors to be fully insured while working on our job sites.

Martin Construction Inc. has worked with a number of interior design professionals who we refer customers to that need assistance with selecting interior and exterior colors, flooring, appliances, plumbing fixtures, lighting, and complete window treatment selection and installation.
