What sets us apart from our competition? Our ability to manage the project from start to finish, making sure the work is done right, and on time. It’s the experience that we have that allows us to put together the team that will come through on time and on budget. Our decades of experience in new build construction allows us to facilitate project management from conception to completion.
Custom Builds: Can’t find your dream house on the market? We specialize in custom builds and will use our expertise to help design a space that is exactly what you envisioned. Our simple yet comprehensive process allows you to be part of the whole development of your new build..
1. Initial Consultation – In this meeting, we want to get to know you and your vision. Our experienced staff can help bring your dream home to life.
2. Design – This is where the creative juices flow. We help put your vision on paper and get a rough estimate for your perfect home.
3. Lot and House Plan – Here we discuss the lot and requirements your home will need. We go over the final plans and converse about any changes needed.
4. Estimating and Budget Review – We take all the information from the previous processes and put that into a budgetary format to see the total cost of your new build. Once approved, we will finalize all the documents and start construction.
5. Permitting and Construction – This is where the fun begins. After all documents and plans have been approved by the city, we break ground for your future home.
6. Home Sweet Home – You made it! The last step to our process is your satisfaction. We want this building to be your home. And we will continue to be available for anything you need.
How many years have you been in business, and how many homes have you built?
What sort of new home warranty do you offer?
We always offer a one-year warranty and we have options for two-year, four-year and 10-year warranties.
Who will be overseeing the construction of my home? Who can I reach out to with questions as they arise?
I personally oversee all phases of construction. You will have my personal cell phone number, my Superintendent’s personal cell phone number and the number to our project managers. We have an office in West Bradenton, you’re free to stop by the office anytime. You can reach us via text messaging, email, telephone or through our 24/7 project management portal. You will also see us on site quite often.
What is your process for inspections throughout construction, final walk-through, and to address any matters that need to be corrected/finalized?
You are involved in the process from day one. We are open and transparent and everything is recorded and documented. Inspections are handled by Manatee county and they occur at all critical phases from Site Development to structure to plumbing, mechanical and electrical and through all phases of trim out and the certificate of occupancy (CO). We are partners in your home construction and we work with you and your family on a daily basis to ensure quality of construction, ease of communication and reliable documentation of all aspects of the process.
How and when will the final cost of my home be determined?
The final cost of your home is determined once the design is finalized. We can talk about metrics on a per-square-foot basis but your final price will be determined based upon your final design. We work hand-in-hand with you and your family and our architect to design a home that is in-keeping with your budget.
Do you all have your own engineers and soil experts go out to inspect and or survey the land in order to make sure the land is buildable?
Do you help with due diligence on the land within our due diligence period?
Yes. We work with our design team to determine the feasibility of the land and determine a preliminary site plan.
Accessory Dwelling Units
Do you need more living space? Recently, Manatee County has been in the process of updating the Land Development Code to allow Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) in existing neighborhoods. An ADU is a separate living area contained on a single-family lot. With rising costs of rent and the small availability of affordable housing, ADUs are an excellent alternative. These ADUs can be built as attached to the home, detached single-story, above garage, and more. When done right, this type of housing reaps major rewards for homeowners, from renting income to aging in place independence.
At Adkins Building & Construction we have extensive experience building homes with quick turn around time. With ADUs we are even more efficient. We take you on every step of the process to ensure all of your needs are met. We offer customized services for your ADU construction. We know that every homeowner is different, with different preferences and tastes. That is why we offer tailor-made ADU construction services.
The unit is completely separate from the primary home. This is a great solution for maintaining privacy for a rental unit.
This unit is attached to the primary home. It’s a flexible solution to expand the size of your residence and add a second unit.
2nd Floor Conversion
Transform an existing secondary structure. Building on top of a garage is an option in certain areas too.
