Home construction or improvement projects are often first-time or once-in-a-lifetime experiences for our clients. For us, the process is well known and understood. We want to make it as easy as possible for you.
We take the time to communicate with you every step of the way to ensure that you know what to expect and how to contribute, and to ensure your input on the decisions that arise along the way.
We begin by reviewing the design and providing an accurate estimate of costs. We work with you to refine the budget and design and then provide a detailed proposal. Once the proposal is accepted, Marvel Homes develops a schedule for the project for review and discussion. We then pursue permitting and finalize our start date.
Sitting down with clients to fully understand their vision.
Making that vision into a workable and realistic design that meets all of the clients expectations.
Turning the clients dream into a reality.
The Planning stage forms the foundation for the design and building stages ahead. Early, thoughtful, and detailed project planning helps owners make wise investments with their time and money. Marvel’s planning process answers the Client’s question, “Where do I begin?”
Marvel’s professionals help clients fine tune their home or remodeling ideas into workable concepts from which detailed plans can be created—the first step into making clients’ dreams realities. Using our experience from work on similar projects, we are also able to develop a rough estimate of cost expectations early on. Once design ideas and cost issues are addressed, a design professional is determined who will translate ideas developed with the client into a workable plan— taking into account all the elements that a client wants to achieve. Any potential problems are identified, a road map is developed, and the journey begins for another successful building project.
Each Marvel Homes Client Is unique. Marvel Homes’ planners are adept at guiding Clients through the complex variables inherent in building and remodeling. Our planners can address architectural and design alternatives as well as their associated costs and permit requirements.
Design is the most important part of remodeling. A good design leads to a job that stays on schedule and on budget. Typically, it takes as long to design a project as it does to build it. Although the design fee is separate from the construction fee, collaboration of the Marvel team and the designer during the design process helps to maintain your target budget.
Marvel Homes has worked with many architects and designers throughout the years. If you do not have an architect or designer on your short list, we can recommend one.
We have worked with Steve Backus of JSB Designs www.backusdesignbuild.com for many years and have been rewarded with many satisfied customers. Steve is a great designer, has a keen background on building, great customer rapport, and works along with Marvel to give the customer what they want, within budget, and on schedule. Whether you use our designer or yours, from concept through construction, Marvel partners with your architectural designer to bring the master builder’s perspective into the process, collaborating from the beginning of the project. As the architect translates your vision into innovative design, we help them to ground it in financial and construction realities and ensure the highest-quality building solutions.
Marvel Homes provides the project schedule and price, so that you can move forward with confidence and construction. We provide project management that tracks budget, schedule, and incorporating design changes.

Our company continues to evolve, but our fundamental ethics will never change—Marvel Homes delivers functional, sustainable projects and quality craftsmanship.
Once the contract is signed, Marvel provides a detailed schedule with a start date and a completion date. We set an aggressive schedule, but also leave room for the unexpected during the planning and design process to mitigate any unforeseen potential problems that may occur. Your personal schedule will include the major construction milestones such as Foundation , Framing, Drywall installation, plumbing, inspections and when we will need decisions or items from the home owner. Devin Nasvaderani, owner of Marvel Homes, is always available by phone if questions arise.
