Design. Build. Dwell. Maintain.

Everything in Perfect Harmony.

Our Design-Build-Dwell-Maintain approach was created to give you peace of mind. Even if you aren’t local, you’ll feel connected to the process. We’re going to care for your new home the same way you do. To us, that means keeping our team on the same page from concept to completion.

Nothing gets lost in translation when our architects, designers, and construction professionals hear the same thing directly from you and work together to make it a reality.

A strong relationship
from start to finish.

Our approach guarantees the highest level of engagement for clients looking to maximize their investment. Nothing gets lost in translation when the team you’ve chosen speaks and understands the same language at every step. Here’s how it works.

Our All-Inclusive Process


DESIGN. Let’s start by designing your ideal home. Our team of architects/designers, builders and interior designers will translate your ideas into conceptual plans and work with you to perfect them. Once this is all set, we conduct a ‘Fit and Finish’ interview to help set quality, style and costs. After that, we are able to create a very accurate budget locked in with detailed specifications and a design-parti to literally put us all on the same page before entering a design-build contract. From there, we complete the 3D renderings and bring in a host of other experts from our team to work through all critical planning and details before building.


BUILD. We’ll break ground on your new home and keep you updated on the construction progress through frequent communications as well as through our building app with a live weekly schedule. You’ll work closely with our interior design team on cabinetry, lighting and all other selections, while our construction team manages the extensive quality control process.


DWELL. Most clients take advantage of our team’s expertise and specific knowledge about their home to use Tribus Interior Design to completely furnish and accessorize their home.


MAINTAIN. Once you move in, our build team professionally takes care of all punch or warranty issues. Our Dillard-Jones Renovations & Service team then offers their turn-key maintenance services. From changing air filters, painting or filling the fridge with your favorite foods, our team is prepared to build a life-long relationship by taking care of your needs beyond your finished home.

Here. There. Everywhere.

In today’s environment, working remotely with us is incredibly easy. We’re constantly integrating the latest technology into our process to create a seamless experience for our remote clients, whether that means a virtual site walk, a live drone fly-over, video meetings, and more. In fact, most meetings that happen during the design and build of your home can be done from afar.

Our clients’ needs—and the world—are ever-changing, and we’re happy to adapt and accommodate. So, if you’re on an extended work trip in Europe, vacationing on a different coast, or simply living a few states away, our team will bring a personal touch and engaging visuals to you, no matter where you may be.

All for you.

Our approach is anything but typical—and it’s what makes us the best at what we do. We don’t just manage your build in one location: often, our builders, designers, architects, and interior designers are all at the same table. This ensures our team is on the same page from concept to completion.

We never work in a silo. Instead, we’ll collaborate on all aspects of your home from start to finish. Nothing gets lost in translation when our team hears the same thing directly from you. And no major changes can happen until we’ve considered how it would affect design, construction, or livability.

The end result?
A truly exceptional home.

The Premier Collective.

We’re proud to be the first in the region to use such a collaborative homebuilding process. We’ve truly set the standard for this model and have spent years perfecting it. It’s evident from our first meeting—we’re focused on getting to know you and developing a lasting relationship that goes beyond your home build.

While our process may be standard, a Dillard-Jones home is anything but. Our architects, designers, and interior designers each use their unique background and experience to create an only-of-its-kind home that completely reflects your style, needs, and personality.

You’ll be thrilled with special, surprising touches along the way that uniquely welcome you into the Dillard-Jones family.
