Weeks after permitting


You have the perfect piece of land. Blu builds premium, healthy, green beautifully-designed homes. To blend the two into a successful project takes a comprehensive site design & development process.



4+ weeks

Build on your land
We kick off with a site visit that informs our team as they work with you to conceptualize the best home for your land.
The concept phase includes:
Preliminary Delivery
Whether you own land or are still looking, we'll send out our team to advise you on the benefits and challenges of each site and how best to deliver your home based on an in-depth site review.
Your Blu team will work with you to review your budget and finalize your layout to create conceptual plans. Based on these plans, we can provide a pre-permit project timeline.
Code and Zoning
Every local administration can be different when it comes to regulations. Your Blu team will verify the feasibility of your project so it's designed and built to meet local requirements.
