Cava Custom Build



-From Concept Through Completion-

Our process

Design / Consult

Regardless of the size or scope of your home building project, Cava is happy to meet with you personally to discuss your preliminary ideas, budget and schedule.

We will work with your selected architect or designer to ensure that the final product is a home which accurately reflects your needs in both form and function.  

For projects not requiring an architect, Cava has the expertise to guide you through the design and selection process.


Cava will coordinate the efforts of all team members - providing a simplified and seamless approach to complex projects.

We are adept at steering building projects through the myriad of zoning and building requirements to obtain the necessary permits.

To help eliminate surprises, we develop a detailed Scope of Work, Budget and Schedule for every project.


We believe that building and remodeling should be  enjoyable!  

Our client-centered approach reduces "construction anxiety" through dedicated involvement, strict quality control and effective communication throughout the process.

Our team of trade professionals has been carefully selected to provide our clients with approachable, conscientious and highly skilled craftsmen.
