The Home Buying Process

When you choose to build with Ridgemont Homes, you can feel confident that you’ll be well taken care of every step of the way. Our process is designed to make you feel present and involved without feeling overwhelmed. Below is a detailed explanation of what you can expect in the home building process: 

If you have any questions about our process, give us a call at 615-891-1915 and we’ll be happy to walk you through it!


Initial consultation

We’ll sit down and figure out your wants and needs for your new home and begin sketching and planning what your layout is going to look like.

Incorporating your vision

We then take your ideas to one of our trusted local architects to really flesh out the design, taking into account the layout and restrictions of your home site.

You get the timeline

Before we start building, we’ll give you a list of vendors and a timeline of targeted selection dates that support the construction time. That way, you’ll have the right elements picked out for your home when we’re ready to install them.

Placement Review

Next, we’ll go out to your home site and review the placement of your home. When that’s approved, the home will be staked and we’ll discuss grading and clearing options. This is when we'll break ground on your new home!


Before drywall installation, you’ll do a walkthrough to verify the final placements of all rough-ins. We’ll do another walkthrough before final closing so you can have total peace of mind and make sure everything looks just as you wanted it to.


After all is said and done, we set our proactive warranty dates. This is where we’ll check in on you to see how everything’s going and if you have any items that need to be repaired. We do one 30 days after you move in, and then two more after 90 days and 1 year. Many builders use third parties for their warranties, but ours are done in-house and you’ll only be hearing from us. We do this to show you how much we stand behind our homes and how much we care about our homeowners.
