PUYALLUP, Wash., Aug. 30, 2023 – Builders Capital, through its affiliate partnership with customhome.ai, now offers its clients fully-modeled residential home designs that include helpful quantity takeoffs and cost estimates.  

Builders Capital clients can take advantage of this in three easy steps:  

  1. First, a builder chooses an exterior home design style.  
  2. Second, the builder selects the model that best fits their needs.  
  3. Third, the builder can make changes to both the exterior and interior from a list of options to customize the home in real-time. 

The result is a design that speeds the process to plan and budget homes that are more efficient to build and better targeted to the end homebuyer.  

One of the most beneficial features of the tool is that it displays an estimated build cost during the real-time design stage, based on proprietary regional data. The plans also offer localized material cost estimates and quantity takeoffs through the integration with BIMQuote.com. This is an industry first.   

“We are tackling the problem of buying an online plan, only to find out it’s too costly to build,” said Travis Dodge, CTO at Builders Capital. “Customhome.ai has produced thousands of unique home-building plans to date, and we are on our way to being one of the largest online sellers of residential plans that are modeled and rendered, with material and quantity takeoffs.” 

Customhome.ai is the most tech-enabled residential home design platform available, and it’s integrated with BIMQuote, for modeling and material takeoffs. Together these tools can dramatically shorten the preconstruction window with streamlined communication, project definition, and budgeting to help ensure the project is financially sound from the beginning.  

“The customhome.ai platform, BIMQuote.com technology, coupled with the purchasing power of Builders Capital and its $5B+ worth of homes financed in its active portfolio, delivers a revolutionary combination,” said Rob Trent, CEO. “With links to major national suppliers, we’re offering material discounts that most builders don’t have access to and leveling the playing field for our private homebuilder clients.”  

Builders Capital will rebate the cost of designs purchased through customhome.ai for their clients participating in the Material Order Rebate (MOR) Program. The costs are credited against the loan origination fee when financed through Builders Capital, another first of its kind in the building industry.
