7 Easy Steps to Build on Your Lot
1. YOUR HOMESITE
In town or out, we’ll build almost anywhere you like! And if you aren’t sure where to get started, we can help you find or evaluate a homesite for your new home. Once you’ve purchased the right homesite, all we need to get started is the survey!
2. SELECT YOUR PLAN
It’s fun to browse through our architect-designed floor plans to select the one you would most like to live in! Your Sales Consultant will assist you in selecting the ideal floor plan from our collection of designs, and you can personalize it with our FlexSpace℠ options to make your dream home a reality.
3. ARRANGE FINANCING AND FINALIZE CONSTRUCTION AGREEMENT
Your Sales Consultant will put you in touch with our preferred lender for your financing needs. They will ensure you get the best mortgage to fit your requirements. Once you’ve arranged for financing, lock in your home price by finalizing your Construction Agreement.
4. DETERMINE SITE COSTS
Each homesite is different and each plan will fit differently on your homesite. We review each site carefully and will provide you with all the necessary site costs involved in the construction of your new home.
5. PERSONALIZE YOUR HOME
Make your home your own by choosing from the wide variety of pre-priced Custom Choices™ available in our Design Center. Need help with your selections? Our Design Consultants can help bring out your inner interior designer!
6. BEGIN CONSTRUCTION
Experience Building The Weekley Way with three scheduled meetings with your Personal Builder℠. These three meetings are scheduled during construction to keep you up-to-date on your home’s progress and ensure your happiness. After all, if you have questions about your home, who better to answer them than the person who’s building it?
7. MOVE-IN AND WARRANTY
Your personal home building journey doesn’t stop with the construction. As part of our Customer Care program, David Weekley Homes provides a warranty orientation to inform you of the superior 1-year warranty and the additional 10-year limited warranty available.
Build on Your Lot Coverage Area
With the David Weekley Homes Build on Your Lot program, there’s a wide variety of floor plans for you to choose from so you can find one that suits your family’s lifestyle. You’ll have the option to select architectural options to personalize your home to better suit your lifestyle needs, which we refer to as FlexSpace? options. Examples of FlexSpace options may include adding French doors to a study, a fireplace in the family room and more. Depending on the size of your lot or land, we also have floor plans that are ready to be built and do not have FlexSpace options.
With your new home, you’ll also have a variety of Custom Choices™ to choose from to make your home truly your own. You’ll visit our expansive Design Center to browse the various options, from flooring and faucets to countertops and cabinets and more. Guided by the expertise of a professional Design Consultant, you’ll choose design options that reflect your style and personality to create the home of your dreams.

Preparing to Build Your New Home
Building a new home has many stages, and our Team will walk you through the process one step at a time.
We’ll assist you in an evaluation of the ideal location for your new home. Our land consulting services include site cost, suitable floor plan recommendations, and utility or septic and well requirements.
At David Weekley Homes, we know it’s critical to give your homesite a valid soil test and inspection prior to building your new dream home.
A survey of your land is essential before the building process can begin. Through our Build on Your Lot program in Austin, we will conduct a professional survey of your land to determine property limits, as well as plot the location of the home, garage and other features.
We provide a tree survey to gain useful information about the existing trees on your property, such as the species, physical measurement, ages, overall health and life expectancy. Information like this helps our Build on Your Lot experts make informed decisions about which trees we can keep and which ones are potential problems.
If your homesite has an existing structure on it that needs removal, we can take care of that for you! From securing the necessary permits to debris removal, the David Weekley Homes Build on Your Lot program offers demolition services of an existing structure.
Every home is different, and so is its HVAC (heating, ventilating and air conditioning) system. Depending on your situation, region and needs, you can choose from heating systems running on either gas or oil as fuel, or a hybrid-packaged system that can use both fuel types.
We want to make your home building experience free of surprises – especially when it comes to pricing. Fixed pricing from the start of construction means there isn't any question about how much you will pay. We’ll explain the total cost before you sign your final agreement, eliminating unexpected bumps in the road.
We have relationships with Preferred Lenders who are available to assist Homeowners with their home financing needs. Our Preferred Lenders offer a variety of mortgage lending services and can guide you from initial application through closing.
Building Your Home
After the paperwork is signed, the fun begins, and your dream home will start becoming a reality.
Your Personal Builder℠ is dedicated to regularly keeping you informed as your home comes to life. It’s just another way we personalize the home building experience and offer great Customer Service to you.
When you sign your contract, you will be given access to your buyer website, MyDWHome.com – a great resource for keeping track of your home’s progress. You’ll also be able to view photos of your home during the building process, schedule design appointments, schedule warranty service appointments after you’ve closed on your home and more.
Our Team of professionals conduct inspections at different stages by the jurisdiction in which the home is built. Your home must pass each inspection before construction can continue. In addition, David Weekley Homes has professional, third-party inspections performed on foundation, framing, mechanical systems, all plumbing systems and all energy components. Our EnergySaver™ homes in Austin undergo additional inspections, specifically designed and monitored by Environments For Living® for energy-efficiency certification.
We provide all new David Weekley Homeowners with a home location survey plat. In addition to understanding home placement, this survey is required for many zoning approvals and shows all property lines and existing structures on your land drawn to scale.

With a personalized home, you’ll select a floor plan that has FlexSpace? options. These are exterior, interior or structural architectural options that can be modified on the floor plan to allow you to personalize your home to fit the way you live. Examples of FlexSpace options may include adding a covered porch, replacing a tub and shower in an Owner’s Bath with a Super Shower, extending the Owner’s Retreat and more. When you’re choosing a floor plan, our Team will advise what FlexSpace options are available to you.
With a pre-designed home, you’ll select a floor plan that doesn’t have any architectural options that can be modified, giving you fewer decisions to make. With these homes, you’ll still be able to personalize and choose all the interior design details of your home.
Ratings and Reviews
At David Weekley Homes, we understand the importance of receiving recommendations of others when it comes to purchasing their dream home. Read about real experiences from actual customers:
It was amazing to work with a company that puts the customers best interest first. We had a unique experience as we dealt with 3 Sales Managers and 2 Build Managers, but still ended up with a beautiful home. The quality and attention to detail was impeccable. The Design Manager was fantastic to work with, and we love the choices we made to craft our forever home. From being prayed over after the initial lot survey, to being handed the keys at the end, we were confident in the builder choice we made. Yes, there were challenges along the way, but nothing that rattled us to the point where we wanted to give up. Overall, we highly recommend David Weekley’s Build on Your Lot Program. Seriously, go with David Weekley to build your home!

Choosing David Weekley to build our dream home was the proper choice. We had previously owned two other David Weekley homes in the past. Due to our past experience, we were confident that this was the route to take. We like the quality of materials that they use, the six by two-inch outer framing was also very important to us. We were satisfied with the design process, the weekly follow up calls to keep us informed during the construction and the security and confidence in knowing that they would stand behind their product for any warranty issues that could arise. You know when the warranty manager meets with your personally after the construction is completed that they stand behind their product. We love our new home, Thanks to all the David Weekley team that made this possible.
