GETTING STARTED

Reach out to Line Design to discuss any questions you may have and to better understand the process to get started.

Determine where you will be installing your new home. If you have a "lot", determine the placement. If you need to acquire land, you can utilize our team for real estate services and referrals to assist in purchasing a buildable lot, and determining the building site (also called a building envelope).

The base price of our homes includes all components: roof, siding, mechanical systems (including furnace and water heater), electric and plumbing, flooring, paint, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, countertops, and kitchen appliances. Some specialty design finishes and features have additional costs. 

Delivery and installation are not included in our base price. These components of the process represent a negligible cost in relation to the overall build process.
Other items to prepare for include foundation, utilities, grading, or lot preparation, which are not included in our base price.
Each of these items can be bid by a general contractor.

Please let us know if you need assistance.

We work with several preferred lenders that can assist with financing for the lot, home, or lot development as needed.

You can find your land development requirements through your local building department.

You can utilize a land services company to perform any local, county, or city-required environmental or geological studies needed, and they can also assist with applying for any locally required building or lot development permits.

While Line Design does not act as your general contractor for your site preparation, we work with your general contractor and site planner to ensure that utilities and the foundation is designed to the correct specifications.

Our homes are sold “as preapproved and pre-permitted”— with pre-engineered plans, we will handle the home-specific building permits which are filed with HCD. This Federal oversight ensures our homes can be placed anywhere you can legally build a home in the state of California. 

CHOOSING YOUR MODEL

We have a range of well-designed footprints and highly desirable layouts to choose from: select one of our home models that will suit your lot, building envelope, style, and intended use.

We have extensive options to customize the look and feel of your new home. Browse the catalog design and select the finishes and features to be ordered and installed.

Options include exterior siding and interior wall colors, quartz countertops, several cabinet finishes, a large range of custom lighting, tile and bathroom features, fireplace mantels, and shelving.

We collect a $5000 designer fee to begin the order process. This amount will be applied towards your total home cost unless you forgo or cancel the build.

Based on chosen design options and finishes — we generate a final customized home cost.

The payment schedule is then finalized, and the order is prepared for the factory/manufacturer.

We utilize a local escrow company to handle payments and disbursements to complete the order.

When placing your home order, we can draft schematics, mechanical diagrams, drawings, and elevations that are needed to file permits for the lot development with the county or city.

You do not need to file additional “home-specific permits” — our homes are sold with approved Federally regulated inspections and HCD permits directly from the factory.

FINALIZING YOUR HOME

When lot development permits are approved: utilize your locally based general contractor to prepare your lot for the home delivery. This would include any engineering of the lot needed, installing the foundation, and preparation of utility connections.

A general contractor would also perform the installation of other optional exterior features such as a garage, driveway, decks or patios, and landscaping. While the contractor is preparing the lot, the home is built off-site in our factory.

Line Design and the Contractor work to “meet at the finish line”, The home is delivered by a transporter (arranged by Line Design Homes and the Factory)
directly to the prepared lot.

The home arrives nearly fully assembled and complete, typically being delivered in just 2 to 3 sections.

Once the home arrives on site, the sections are connected, the home is attached permanently to the foundation, and utilities are connected. Specialty or on-site contractor items are installed and completed.

Once installed and all items are completed: the final inspections are performed. At this stage, we receive an occupancy permit, which closes escrow, and the home is ready.
