HOME DESIGN & LOT ACQUISITION. From the beginning of this process, you will work with the owner, Justin Oakland, to develop the home of your dreams. We utilize an architectural design program that allows you to visualize your space in 3D. Oakland Homes can also assist you in finding the perfect location for your new home.
BIDDING THE PROJECT. Once the plans are finalized, we can begin to gather pricing on the materials and labor to complete your project. Oakland Homes chooses to work with quality craftsman who take pride in their work and deliver an excellent final product. Once all the numbers come back, Justin will sit down and review the final costs.
