I am interested in building a home, what are the next steps?
The next step is to call us! We can help you through the entire process. We offer two options when looking at a new home, building a Zulich Designer Plan or a Zulich Custom Plan. Zulich Homes has several Designer Home Plans for you to choose from, ranging in many different styles and sizes.Zulich Designer Home Plans have all been reviewed and edited by our staff and designers and have developed into some of the best plans we have ever produced. With painstaking thought put into the framing and layout of the plans, we strive to eliminate inefficient details with respect to structure, mechanical systems and insulation to provide a home that is beautiful, comfortable and affordable. Zulich Designer Home Plans are often in various stages of construction so we may be able to provide you with an on-site walk thru of the model you may be interested in. If you are interested in one of our Designer Home Plans but want to modify it to better suit your needs, or maybe even take on the idea of starting from a blank page and designing your own custom home with Zulich we can certainly help. Modifications to our existing home plans to create a Zulich Custom Home Plan can range from simple room layout changes that may not cost anything at all to adding additional square footage to better accommodate your family. Building a Zulich Custom Home Plan will take a little more effort and may require some additional time to both design and build, but if you are up for the challenge, so are we. Custom Home Plans involve an interview process with our designer and start with preliminary drawings to get a sense of the home being designed and ensure we are meeting the correct style, size and price range for you. Provided that we are happy with the plans we would proceed to final drawings and pricing, including picking a lot and determining when the home could be ready for you.

Can I create my own custom home or customize an existing model’s floor plan?
Custom plans are definitely one of the features Zulich homes can provide. Completely custom homes must be priced accordingly, but if you are looking to add size to one of the Zulich Designer Home Plans we typically consider that $90 per square foot will accommodate the costs incurred. If you want to add windows a good estimate of the cost would be $35 per square foot of window.
