custom build process

Building a beautiful custom home will be one of the most important events of your family’s life. Fortunately, you have the experience and enthusiasm of Bob Cook Homes to lead you through the entire process. We will approach the construction of your home with the same concern, expertise and attention to detail that we would want for our own. Plus, we back each completed home with a comprehensive one-year warranty to cover every inch, inside and out.

Custom residences by Bob Cook Homes are built around a superb communication process - the cornerstone of delivering a home reflecting your vision. As a Cook home buyer, you will enjoy total involvement all along the way using BuilderTrend. By using the BuilderTrend app you can keep track of the build 24/7.

  • PRE-CONSTRUCTION MEETINGS

    Prior to starting construction, you will meet with Bob and your superintendent, Ben Cook. They will explain the building process, review the blueprints of your home with you, confirm the options or upgrades that you have chosen, and answer any questions you may have. All preferences, selections and updates will be available to the customer, vendors and Bob Cook Homes office in real time via Buildertrend software apps.

  • SELECTION CHOICES

    You are given selection sheets so you can go out and meet with the vendors and make your own choices. There are no restrictions on what you can choose for your cabinets, countertops, fixtures and flooring, or other options and upgrades that speak to your unique sense of style.

  • FRAMING ORIENTATION

    Framing Orientation is where there is a chance to make custom choices for the location of your light switches, light fixtures, outlets, freezers, tools, exercise equipment, etc. This meeting gives the customer an opportunity to move a wall, change where the sink will be, add reinforcement for hand rails or heavy mirrors or TV’s for example.

  • TRIM ORIENTATION

    Again you will meet with your superintendent on the job to ensure the placement of cabinets, closet shelves, and any changes to the trim selections you have already completed.

  • NEW HOME ORIENTATION

    This is the final meeting before you move into your new Bob Cook Home. At this meeting you will learn about the systems of your new home, review your new home warranty and ask any final questions.

Frequently asked questions

  • What floor plans do I have to choose from?

    A: BCH is custom builder with dozens of plans in our office for your review. These plans are easily transformed to meet your wants and needs or you’re welcome to bring your own plan and ideas. Our structural designer assists in bringing it all together. We are here to help you develop a unique, quality home that meets your needs and budget.

  • Where can I build my custom home?

    A: BCH builds in Wichita and surrounding areas. We build rural as well as in any of our dozens of pre-approved subdivisions. We are also happy to assist you in the search for the perfect location.

  •  
    How long does it take to build?

    A: On average, about 6 months. Time frame is dependent on how quickly selections are made, verified and ordered. Weather permitting.

  • Can I afford a custom home?

    A: Our custom properties range from $250,000 to $1 million+. In your first meeting with BCH, we will explain the process we use to provide you with realistic allowances and how we are able to accommodate this wide range of budgets.

  • What is the cost difference between an ICF (concrete) home and the standard stick built home?

    A: On average it will cost 10-15% more for construction, and reduce your energy bills to approximately 1/3. Additional insurance discounts may also be available to further expedite the return on your investment.

  • How do Bob Cook Homes compare to other residential home builders?

    A: We believe in long-lasting quality, and will not cut corners when it comes to parts of your home that you don’t always see. Therefore we use a higher-grade of standard materials throughout our process than most residential builders. This dedication to quality will minimize time and money spent for upkeep and repair once your home is complete. Due to this standard, we feel confident in extending a 1 year comprehensive warranty on all of our new homes.

Additional Information

Experience the difference an ICF construction home can make. The quality of a Cook-built home extends far below the surface. As one of the first of only a select few certified ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms) builders in Wichita, Bob Cook Homes has been working with this technology since 1998 with tremendous results.

ICF homes can be heated and cooled with about one-third the energy needed for a traditionally-constructed home. They are also virtually soundproof, extremely moisture resistant, environmentally friendly, have a significantly reduced risk of fire damage and termite damage, and can withstand the wind force of most tornadoes and are more resistant to earthquake damage. Many insurance carriers are now even offering a discount on a homeowner’s policy for an ICF home for their incredibly strong features and benefits.
