The Custom Home Building Process 

The best part of being an on your lot builder is that we build your home on the location of your choice. The location is up to you – in a rural setting, family farm, on a lake, in a development – wherever you choose.  Whether you currently own a site on which to build your new custom home, are narrowing  down your options between multiple sites or are just getting started – we can help you through the custom home building process.

Have land?

Great! As a custom builder in Fresno, Clovis, and areas surrounding Fresno CA, BLC Homes knows each lot has unique characteristics. We build your home on your land – the way you want it. With hundreds of home plans to choose from and each one customizable to fit your needs, we will work with you to make sure your home fits perfectly.

Free Home Site Evaluation

We would be happy to come out and do a free home site evaluation. As your personal custom home builder we will be working with you throughout construction will meet you at the site and answer questions like how your home will be positioned on the lot, what trees will need to be cleared, what utilities are available.

Don’t have land?

That’s no problem. About half of our home owners didn’t have land before they came to us. We have valuable relationships with the real estate community in each of our building areas of Fresno and Clovis who will be happy to help you find the perfect lot for your home.

Financing

Most of our home owners choose a one-time closing since you only have one set of closing costs. This combines the cost of your land and the cost of your new custom home. Or, if you own your land, you can use the equity towards the down payment. Keep in mind, you do not have to pay off the lot first – the lot and home can be combined into one mortgage.
