Building Your Home


After you make your reservation, we work closely with you during every step of the purchase and construction processes to build your new home.  

Purchase Process

The Three Oaks design team works closely with each homebuyer during every step of the purchase process to ensure a great homebuying experience.


Step #2 – Choose Your Home Style & Floor Plan

Choose one of our Craftsman-inspired homes and a corresponding floor plan.

Choose an option package that meets your needs, or create your own option package for a modest additional design charge. We provide you with pricing for every change along the way to help you stay within your budget. 

Step #4 – Customize Your New Home

Step #5 – Sign Your Purchase Agreement & Make Your Non-Refundable Deposit

After you have customized and finalized the pricing of your new home, we will enter into a purchase agreement with you.  The purchase agreement requires that you provide a non-refundable, earnest money deposit for the purchase of your home.  

Step #3 – Make a Reservation

Reserve a lot for your new home for $1,000 and receive your reservation book.  The reservation deposit is totally refundable until we enter into a purchase agreement for your new home.  

Step #1 – Select Your Three Oaks Community

Choose one of our new neighborhoods in southeast Michigan.

Construction Process

The Three Oaks design team works closely with each homebuyer during every step of the construction process to ensure a great home-building experience, including walkthrough inspections at each stage of the construction process.


The construction process begins with outlining the foundation and basement of your new home with stakes.  After we stake the basement, we dig the hole, set the foundation, and install the basement walls.

With the basement in place, we build the frame of your new home, put on the roof, and install the rough mechanical, plumbing, and electrical fixtures.  

With the rough construction completed, it’s time to finish your new home with drywall, paint, final mechanicals, flooring, cabinets, countertops, fixtures, appliances, and many other interior features.  

With your certificate of occupancy in-hand, it’s time to close and move into your new home, which comes with a limited warranty.
