Outlining Your Custom Home Process


So, you want to build your dream home? Wooddale Builders has the tools and the team to help you do just that. But we also want to make sure you know, from start to finish, what to expect. And we thought that outlining your custom home process would be the best way to explain how we take your ideas – and build on them.


After deciding to take the custom home building route, you will meet with a trusted team like the professionals at Wooddale Builders. We will discuss with you the many options for design, style, features, and finishes to fully understand your desired outcome.

Maybe your wish list includes an open concept plan with abundant natural light. Or main-level living, with a palatial primary bedroom suite that features a spacious walk-in closet and relaxing, spa-like bathroom. And a lower-level family room with built-in shelving, a wet bar, and plenty of space for entertaining. Whatever you have in mind, Wooddale can bring it to life.


Next, you’ll want to decide where to build. Currently, Wooddale has lots available in the Deer Hill Preserve area of Medina for your custom single-family home. We also have available lots in Eden Prairie’s Highland Oaks development on which to build your luxury villa or townhome.

Each location incorporates a mix of community and nature, with access to all the creature comforts of city life and the serenity of natural woodlands and wildlife. Contact Wooddale Builders for a complete list of available lots.


With your vision in mind, we then turn concept into a visual strategy. Wooddale is proud to partner with Minnesota’s preeminent architects to draft your ideas into building blueprints.

At this point, you can see your home start to take shape – on paper anyway. This will also allow you to better understand the logistics and flow of your custom home and make any adjustments before the building process begins.

In addition, you will confer with a design consultant to ensure the details and specialized features are exactly what you anticipate. The designer will comb over interior and exterior elements to help you make decisions and choose the best options to fit your desired trends and style.


When plans are (mostly) finalized, that’s when our award-winning build team gets to work. From foundation to framework to finished product, our team of designers, builders, and project managers keeps you informed on each step of your custom home process. Through our commitment to you, we will meet and exceed your expectations while keeping your timeline and budget in sight.

And when you’re all set to move in, your new home will be perfect. That’s our promise.
