Our Process

A Standard Process in a Custom Environment

Looking to have a custom home built in North Idaho? Our process is perfected to ensure you are completely satisfied with your new home. No matter the size of the home or the features inside, every client will go through the same process and will have the same result — a home they love!

We have a relentless passion for excellence. Our process is ever evolving, because nothing short of perfection is acceptable.

Step 1:

Initial Meeting, Selecting Your Builder, & Setting a Budget

We can’t wait to meet you! We are excited to listen attentively to your vision for your home and get to know if we are a good fit for each other! This is just the initial planning stage so we can set expectations going forward.

Step 2:

Design & Initial Site Visit

How can you design a home without seeing the lot you are building on? We will take a look at the land and start designing the home to perfectly fit the area where we will be building your home, as well as your needs and wishes that you expressed in our previous meeting. We are just designing the layout of the home in this step. Don’t worry; you get to design everything else in a later step.

Step 3:

Engineering & Permitting

Your home has to be safe, right? All of our homes are engineered to ensure they are being built to the highest and strictest standards. We want you to not only live in a home that you love looking at but a home you feel safe in as well. After this, we will submit our designs to receive the necessary building permits.

Step 4:


Choice is everything! While you are involved in every step, here is where you truly get to shine! Let your inner interior designer loose and make your new house into a home. Working with our on-staff designer, you will pick all of the colors, fabrics, and materials that will make your dream home come to life. If you know exactly what you want, great! If you need some help pinpointing designs you like, that’s what we are here for. Our full-service design team and inhouse interior designers are here to help create the home of your dreams. We’re excited to see what you come up with!

Step 5:

Ground Breaking & Excavation

Time to get to work! We can’t wait to get started actually creating the home of your dreams. Our professional excavators begin moving dirt for your new Selkirk Construction Home!

Step 6:

Foundation & Back Fill

You can’t build a home without a strong foundation! In this step, your foundation is poured, adhering to strict engineering plans. This will ensure a worry-free foundation.

Step 7:


Here is where your house starts to take shape! Beginning with the floor and ending with the roof, you will be able to see the outline of your home.

Step 8:

Rough In

Maybe not the most exciting step, but one of the most important in terms of the functionality of your home! All of the plumbing, ventilation, heating and cooling systems, and electrical begin to strategically fill the walls. You will get to decide where everything goes, with our help of course!

Step 9:

Drywall & Insulation

Once all of our inspections are done, and quality control is completed, the wall cavities are filled with insulation to ensure your home is energy-efficient and air-tight! We make sure your home stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Once the insulation is completed, drywall is installed to create the walls.

Step 10:

Interior Finishes

Remember all of those selections you made in step four? Here is where we get to install them! This is often our clients’ favorite step because all of the things that make their dream home come to life start coming together.

Step 11:

Final Clean & Final Inspections

Quality and attention to detail is our focus here at Selkirk Construction. We go over every inch of your new home to make sure everything meets our strict quality standards. If we aren’t 100% satisfied with our work, all necessary adjustments are made. Our inspections are completed to ensure your home is safe and exactly what you envisioned!

Step 12:

Final Walk Through

Time to see your new home! We meet with you on-site to walk through and educate you on your new home. Nothing should be a surprise, however, because you will be kept in the loop through the whole process. We walk through each room and make sure everything exceeds your standards and expectations.

Step 13:

Move In & Closing

The part you’ve been waiting for — move-in day! Thank you for trusting us to build your home, and we are excited for you to start making memories in it. Your new Selkirk Construction Home is all yours now.

All of the work performed by our team is covered under warranty and follows our strict quality control guidelines!
