New Construction Part - I

Posted by fccmo on March 3rd, 2018

If you are looking to build your next home, you have come to the right place.  If you are just starting, we Use several tools available to us to help you design a home that gives you the look that you envision and fulfills your needs in a home, all while taking care to stay within a price range that is comfortable.  We also have some stock plans to choose from or we can build your home from plans you have already had drawn.  No matter where you are in the planning process, we can build the home you are dreaming of!  Call us today to get started!


When it is best to stay in the home you are in, but you either need more space or are ready for a different look, we are here to help!

We help you figure out what kind of look you are wanting, and then we help design your renovation to make the best use of your space.

Ask us about multi-generational renovation!

At first Choice Construction, we specialize in Custom Homes and Renovation.  We have been in business since 2010 and have decades of combined experience in the construction industry.  We pride ourselves on making our home owners’ vision a reality, but we still make needed recommendations along the way.  All in all we strive to truly be Missouri’s Low Stress Contractor!  Please click through the portals at the bottom of the page to see pictures of our work.

We are also proud members of the Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield, and you can always find us at the Home Show in late winter and at the Remodeler’s Show in the fall.

Start with your friends and family and then check in with the Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield for a list of members. You can also talk with a building inspector, who’ll know which contractors routinely meet code requirements, pay a visit to your local lumberyard, which sees contractors regularly and knows which ones buy quality materials and pay their bills on time. Another easy way to ask for recommendations from a broader range of acquaintances is to make a “looking for recommendations” post on Facebook. Your Facebook friends will love to tell you which contractors were amazing, and also which ones to avoid.

You have your short list of contractors whose track records seem clean and whose work ethic looks responsible. Now it’s time to stop looking back at past work and start looking forward to your project. A good contractor will want not only a complete set of blueprints but also a sense of what homeowners want out of a project and what they plan to spend. To compare bids, ask everyone to break down the cost of materials, labor, profit margins and other expenses. Generally materials account for 40 percent of the total cost; the rest covers overhead and the typical profit margin, which is 15 to 20 percent
