SELECTION PROCESS

This document is provided to you to help streamline the selection process. Our interior designers, Sally Trapp (512-423-5294), Babs McMaude (512-451-5511), or Courtney Whitworth (512-791-2604), or a designer of your choosing will coordinate this process with you. Your Interior Designer keeps a number of the selection items that you can choose; however, many of our clients like to see all the possible selections for each item. For this reason, we have provided you with all of our vendor contacts so that you can visit them and see just about every selection available. When you do visit our vendors, it is important that you make an appointment so that they can give you their undivided attention. If you will follow this outline, we believe you will find the selection process quite enjoyable.

Only the subcontractors and vendors listed below can be used during the construction process of the home.  If the below subcontractors and vendors cannot provide services you require, we will work to find a source from additional specialty subcontractors that are not listed below. Please work through your construction manager to find a source that is approved by us for those specialty items.

Pricing:Each selection phase is not complete until you have signed off on the pricing with Eppright Homes LLC on your website. Please allow one week after you sign your selection sheet for us to complete the pricing. Any delays in making or approving your selections will automatically extend the contract completion date. We will compare the cost of each selection with your allowance, and we will not order anything until we get your authorization posted on your website. So please remember once again that time is of the essence.

Phase I:  PRIOR TO CONSTRUCTION START (to be Completed within 30 Days of the Execution of the Construction Contract)

First Appointment with your Interior Designer: This appointment is to be scheduled with your designer after signing the construction contract and prior to start of construction. Throughout the selection process, your Interior Designer will help guide you to the appropriate vendors and accompany you to the meetings if you desire. The following items are to be addressed and need to be selected. You may also want to discuss cabinetry before meeting with your cabinet professional or have the Interior Designer accompany you to the meeting.

  • Wood Flooring:

Although we rarely use this product, floor areas that will be job site sand and finish wood floors must be identified prior to the foundation design, so that those areas can be dropped 1 1/2" to allow for sub-flooring and hardwood placement. Actual selection of sand and finish wood flooring type and stain will be selected during Phase II. Selection of glue down wood flooring will be selected during Phase IV. Most of our wood floor areas are glue down, engineered, and factory finished allowing the use of aluminum oxide that is much more durable than the finishes available for use outside of a controlled environment.

  • Exterior Door & Window Color:

Window and exterior color are to be selected and confirmed with our purchasing manager Nancy Kay.   Some colors require an additional charge.

  • Entry Door:

Our clients typically select either wood or iron front doors. If you are selecting an iron door, it can be custom designed by your interior designer or at Durango Doors w/ Lindsey Ship 2112 Rutland Drive Ste 178 (512) 563-1670 (by appointment only) or on the web at www.durangodoors.com or at Cantera Doors w/ Edgar Cerano 4170 Canyon Glen Circle (512)767.5295 (by appointment only) or on the web at www.canteradoors.com. You will need to select the style, glass type, color of the door, and the hardware.  This particular type of door takes at least 6-8 weeks for production, and the manufacturer will hold producing the door if they do not have all the information needed. When selecting a wood door, please schedule an appointment at Doors and Co. 6409 Burnet Rd. with Francisco Ulloa at (512) 454-330, sales@doorsandcompany.com or The Front Door Company w/ Steve Siegwalt 5209 N. Lamar Blvd. with Lance at (512)459-9034, ssiegwalt@thefrontdoorco.com. Door hardware is to be selected at Builder’s Display with Rosa Perlinger 2112 Rutland Drive Suite 185 @ (512)453-7303 (by appointment only). Some door hardware requires special mortising and will need to be made known to Eppright Homes, LLC at time of ordering.

  • Roof Selection:

Your roof type is specified per the contract. It’s extremely helpful if you again have an address or a photograph of the roof color you would like to have. Our office will have most roof samples but it can be very difficult to visualize from small samples what your roof will look like. This is why we recommend looking at other houses ahead of time. 

  • Exterior Masonry:

It’s a good idea to pre-select your masonry with an address or picture of a home with a similar exterior masonry that you would like for your home. See specifications for the exact selection. Any change will be priced through Eppright Homes, LLC on an individual basis. A sample will be provided at the jobsite for your approval.
