Our Process & What To Expect

First Meeting

Call us at (828) 230-0136, or email corey@mountainsoundbuilders.com to say hello and start the conversation. Our first job is to listen to your goals and vision and make sure we’re the best fit for your project. After introductions and deciding it’s a good fit, we will schedule a site meeting.

Site Meeting

Let’s meet at your new or existing home site and walk through the project vision. Here, Corey will professionally assess potential challenges, as well as get a sense of your aesthetic, build preferences, and start to gather more information for an initial estimate.

Design & Engineering

As we move forward, we’ll collaborate closely with your architect, design team, structural engineering team, and other important members of your project during the planning phase. We’ll advocate for your timeline and budget and you’ll enjoy a full clear window into the planning process.

Budget, Timeline & Finalized Plan

Your budget and timeline are important, and we want to honor that when finalizing your build plans. We will meet with you to make sure all the details are clear, including each line item on  your estimate, so you can sleep better knowing exactly what you’re investing in and what it will look like when finished. Once final plans, budget and timeline are approved, we will submit for permitting and start the most exciting phase: construction


The success of your project depends on the focus of dedicated and talented tradespeople. Corey, your general contractor, will work diligently with a professional crew that has the experience, expertise, and precision to bring your home vision to life. Curious about the status of your build or remodel? Traveling or living elsewhere during construction? You can rest easily and gain instant access to project updates and progress through our online client portal. Anne, our business manager, will keep you updated on budget spends and progress reports. Site walkthroughs can also be scheduled during this phase.

Finishing Details

Finishing touches, warranty cards, service provider information, checklists, contacts, and final walkthroughs are now ready. This is the phase where our team will work hard on those little last steps to make sure your new home or space is ready for you and your loved ones. The moment you walk in the door, we want you to feel a sense of peace and belonging.

We look forward to making your dream a reality.
