Our Process
Our aim is to simplify the home building process and remove many of the typical obstacles for each of our clients.

What happens

Our team of experienced professionals will work closely with you to gain a full understanding of your needs, desires, and lifestyle, ensuring that your new home truly feels like yours.

We'll discuss everything from the exterior look of your home to the functionality and design of the interior, taking into account your unique style and preferences. Our goal is to collaborate with you to create a home that not only meets but exceeds your expectations, leaving you with a living space that you will be proud to call your own for years to come.


The first step in pursuing any building project is to connect with our team for guidance on design, materials, logistics, methods, expected prices, and so on.


This is an essential step in determining the feasibility of construction on the property, as the survey will provide crucial information such as property boundaries, easements, topography, and zoning regulations. Based on this information, we can advise our clients on the size and scope of the house that can be built on the lot, ensuring that their vision for their future home aligns with the reality of the property.


This is a crucial stage where our architects provide an initial layout and design of the house to the client for their approval. By collaborating with the client during this phase, we ensure that their vision for their dream home is accurately captured and brought to life in the final design.

Architectural Design

During this phase, our architects work closely with the client to design their dream home, taking into account their unique vision and preferences. As this is a collaborative effort, this phase can often take a significant amount of time, as we strive to ensure that every detail is captured and integrated into the design.

Building Submittal

During this phase, we submit our plans to the city of Denver for formal approval, ensuring that all local building codes and regulations are met. Our team works closely with city officials to ensure that any necessary revisions or updates are made promptly, and we keep our clients informed of any changes throughout the process. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure a smooth and successful building permit process, setting the foundation for the construction phase to follow.

Project Development

During this phase, we begin construction on the home. We take great pride in our workmanship, and our team of skilled builders and craftsmen works diligently to ensure that every detail is executed to the highest standards of quality.

Final Inspection

During the final inspection, we conduct a thorough walk-through of the home to ensure that every detail has been executed to the highest standards of quality and that all building codes and regulations have been met. Any issues or items that require attention are noted on a punch list, and our team works diligently to address them promptly.


Once we receive the final sign-off from the client, we celebrate the completion of the project, knowing that we have played a crucial role in bringing their dream home to life. We take great joy in seeing our clients settle into their new home and look forward to seeing the memories that they will create there for years to come.

Frequently Asked Question


Choosing a custom home build guarantees that you receive precisely what you desire, and the most cost-effective and highest quality design value for your property. If you have specific design features, floor plans, or styles in mind that aren't available in a master-planned community, a custom home build is the perfect solution. Remodeling your existing home may be prohibitively expensive or come with unknowns that prevent you from reaching your ultimate goals.

A new custom home may be a better option for you if you want to avoid living through a gut rehab that may not achieve all of your wishes. A design/build firm such as Mile High Building & Development can help you build a custom home that is ideally suited to your property's unique features if you have a beautiful piece of land. Every piece of land is unique, and you cannot simply place a pre-designed plan on it and expect to be happy with the result or save money. If you have a plan that you like but want to make some changes, custom home building is also a good option for you.


A spec home is a home that is built without a specific owner in mind. It is typically built with the builder's preferences and market trends in mind, which can limit your ability to customize the layout, products, and colors. While the resulting home can be of good quality, it may not be tailored to your specific needs and wishes.

A custom home, on the other hand, is built with your needs and preferences in mind. Every detail, from the level of insulation to the placement of outlets, is designed to fit your specific lifestyle. With a custom home, you have complete control over the design, layout, and product choices to ensure that you get exactly what you want.


The timeline for building a custom home varies based on the project's size and complexity. In general, the process takes at least a year from initial planning to receiving your keys. Larger homes or challenging sites may require up to 18 months to complete. Several factors, including the design phase, permit acquisition, site development, and construction, influence the timeline.

At Mile High Building & Development, we offer a detailed timeline once the construction phase begins, ensuring that we deliver on time, with a 98% record of timely delivery. If you're planning to build a custom home next year, we recommend starting the design process now.


We at Mile High Building & Development are equipped to build homes year-round, even in rainy conditions. Our team has experience in protecting under-construction homes from the weather and using high-performance products that can handle the elements. We also use specific sub-flooring materials that can withstand moisture exposure without causing damage or long-term performance issues. However, we may need to take breaks during heavy snowfall or torrential downpours that may slow down the construction process. Rest assured, we will keep you informed of any delays and work to keep your project on track.


Building a custom home is a unique experience that comes at a cost. Since each project is tailored to the client's specific needs and preferences, the cost can vary greatly. When building a custom home, the cost starts at around $500,000, which includes expenses such as taxes, site development, customized plans, and other costs. The final cost of your custom home will depend on the size, location, materials, finishes, and any additional features you want to include. At Mile High Building & Development, we work with you to create a budget and ensure that every aspect of your custom home meets your expectations while staying within your budget.


Custom homes, being new and often situated in existing neighborhoods with homes from previous decades, don't have accurate comparisons for appraisal purposes. The older homes nearby, apart from being dated, were likely built to previous codes and environmental regulations. Comparisons do not factor in the cost of renovating these older houses. As a result, new custom homes are often undervalued in appraisals. As a result, buyers should be prepared to contribute more cash towards their new home.
