Planning And Design Phase

Your project will begin by sitting down with one of our Sales Consultants. They will ask and listen to all of the details, needs, and wants you require for your home.

We can price and build a floor plan you already have or help you customize a Joseph Scott Homes floorplan to fit your individual needs. Our team has the talent and experience to design a home from scratch, too, if that’s what you desire. Customizing a floorplan is the starting point for your new home build.

When we are close to finalizing your floor plan, we will help you explore the finishing details for your new home, including specialized heating & cooling system options, flooring, paint colors, and every detail in between.

The Right Property for Your New Home

Already own your property? We will visit the site with you to ensure it can support the type of home you want to build and the things you want to do with your home. We even go as far as putting together grading plans for lots with some contour and having topographical survey work done to ensure there are no drainage problems after your home is built.

If you do not yet have a property, Jason can help you find a lot that fits your specific needs and desires. Whether you are looking for acreage west of the interstate, having a walkout lot with southern exposure, or a backyard with some privacy abutting to open space or woods, we’ll find the right property for you. We will also research the property to ensure there is nothing there that can create problems for construction. If we find any issues, we will call them out. As a full service real estate agent, we will then negotiate on your behalf, obtaining the lot for the best possible value and providing you peace of mind, knowing all there is to know about your new property.

Construction Phase

Before construction officially begins, you’ll sit down with Mike & Jim, the expediters of your home, for a pre-construction meeting. They will walk you through our construction schedule, detailing what will happen when, and provide you with a tentative move-in date. They will also go over the blueprint for your new home and the items you have selected for the design to ensure no detail is missed.

During construction, our Project Managers are constantly on site to ensure everything is happening the way it should be. This level of attention guarantees a smooth and enjoyable building experience from start to finish of your project. Most new home builds take approximately five months to complete. If your home is going to take longer, you will know upfront.

When your home is under construction, we encourage site visits and communication to ensure expectations are being met. From the excavation and pouring of the foundation to framing your new house, we want to make sure the experience going into the drywall and trim phase stays exciting, and communication and accessibility remain open.


At completion, you will have a walk through with your Project Manager to ensure everything has been done to your complete satisfaction.

The secret to making this an enjoyable experience is setting realistic expectations, providing good communication, and our “hand-holding” philosophy. This process will ensure you have a “Miracle on 34th St” and not a “Nightmare on Elm St” experience. (A sense of humor is also important during the building process.)

Even after you’ve moved into your new home, our job is not finished; if any items of concern come up, they will be addressed promptly by our team. Joseph Scott Homes is proud to partner with Wisconsin utilities in providing new homes that meet the Focus on Energy label.

A Focus New Home gives you:

  • Peace of mind. Focus provides you with the confidence, expertise, and assistance to help you build the home of your dreams
  • A more energy-efficient home. Estimated to be 10 percent more efficient than homes built to the Wisconsin Uniform Dwelling Code.
  • Proof of energy efficiency. Any builder can say they build energy-efficient homes. The difference with Focus is that you have a third-party certification to prove it.
  • Easy decision making. From initial planning and preparation through construction and inspection, we will be there every step of the way, making sure your home meets the highest standards of quality craftsmanship and ensuring your investment is a sound one.

When you buy a Focus New Home, you get the benefit of knowing you’re helping preserve Wisconsin’s environment. Less energy used means fewer environmental effects on our air, water, and land.
