Our Process

You don't need to imagine the first steps to a beautiful home.

Allow us to show you the start, and what’s coming next.

Initial Consultation

When you are ready to consider Ferguson Builders, contact us by phone or through our website’s contact form. We will schedule an initial consultation to learn about your project. During this meeting, we will discuss some key talking points and ask some further questions to make sure we thoroughly understand your project. We will give you feedback on our approach to your project. If we both sense that we are good fit, we will move toward creating our Project Proposal.

Design & Proposal Development

This step may vary depending upon your project’s specific needs.

Custom Builds

If we are planning a custom home together, we will meet with you and our Ferguson Builder’s in-house draftsman or an architect to listen to your dreams and desires to create a custom floor plan that truly fits your lifestyle. Each of our custom homes have been specifically designed to meet the needs of our clients. We invite you to browse our Custom Home Concepts.

Remodels, Renovations, Additions

If we are planning a remodel, renovation or addition, we will listen to your dreams to upgrade your home in just the ways that fit your life. Depending on the size of your project, we may involve our draftsman and interior designer.

Once these advanced designs for either project type are finalized, we will create and share with you an Initial Project Proposal. In some cases, clients may wish to make minor adjustments to the design and initial quote. We will work together with you to develop a design and budget that is just right for you and your home.


Once you have approved your designs and quote, we will sign our contract and get your project on the schedule. If not already completed, our interior designer can guide you selecting the finish items (such as lighting and plumbing fixtures, flooring, cabinets, and more).

You will also receive a BuilderTREND login. BuilderTREND is a cloud-based project management system which allows us to communicate and keep you up-to-date on all aspects of your project. We are one of the few builders in the Upstate using BuilderTrend. For a glimpse at what you can expect, watch our brief video.

Meeting Your Site Manager

Now your project is ready to begin construction! We will hold a meeting to introduce you to your Project Manager. He will describe what you can expect as the project unfolds. This is a perfect time to ask logistical questions, such as what time work will begin each day, what will happen the first week, and how best to communicate as our onsite work begins. You can count on your Project Manager throughout the process to keep you up to date and on time. He will share his direct phone number with you, so you can contact him whenever you have a question. You can learn more about our project managers on Our Team page. 


We understand that the construction process can be a stressful time so we try to keep you up-to-date and do everything we can to keep the process easy and seamless. With your BuilderTREND log-in, you will be able to view your project’s daily schedule, progress updates, payment information, selections and much more. 

Moving in

This last stage is our favorite – when you get to move into your new space! You can move in, enjoy your home, and live worry free. Each Ferguson Builders project comes with a 1-year workmanship warranty. Our custom homes come with a full 3rd party 10-year structural warranty.
