Our Process

Initial Consultation

At McKinley Masters, the initial consultation is all about discovering your vision for your dream urban home. We are eager to ask you questions to better understand your vision, answer your questions and guide you through the process, helping you to determine the key elements that will bring your urban dream into a tangible reality.

Your Vision

With a focus on client satisfaction, McKinley Masters works with you to create a clear vision for your luxury urban home. We consider all aspects of your lifestyle and family needs to develop a personalized plan that reflects your personality, desires, and lifestyle for operational purposes. We aim to work extensively with all of our clients, so we can determine what exactly you envision for your future home and develop plans based on what you want.

Design Towards Reality

Once we understand your vision, we can subsequently start the design process. Our team of designers will create a set of plans that accounts for all specific requirements and requests. We use state-of-the-art technologies to create a rendering of your proposed home, allowing you to visualize the exterior design and interior layout and make any necessary adjustments before construction begins.

Defining Features & Objectives

During the design process, we will work with you to define the key features and objectives. This includes everything from the layout and flow of the space to the finishes and materials used throughout. We take into account your lifestyle, hobbies, and preferences to ensure that your urban home is not only beautiful, but functional and tailored to your specific needs.

From Plan to Construction

Once the design is finalized, we will begin the construction process. Our team of experienced builders and project managers will work diligently to bring your vision to life, ensuring that every aspect of the construction process is executed with precision and attention to detail. We use only the highest quality materials and finishes, and our builders take great pride in their craftsmanship.

A Celebration of Satisfaction

We also provide a comprehensive warranty to give our clients peace of mind that their investment is protected. Our goal is to develop a home for our clients that is worth celebrating!


We recognize that building a custom home, especially if you’ve never gone through the process before, can be daunting and overwhelming. At McKinley, we strive to remove some of the uncertainty by taking clients through our Partnership Process. From consultation to design to construction, we are here to offer support and assistance as you make some of the biggest decisions! During the construction process, we will visit the developing home multiple times per week to ensure the construction process is going smoothly. We also provide access to a premium project management software that enables access to all project details. We want to keep a steady flow of communication so we can offer support and address any potential issues effectively and swiftly. 

Yes, McKinley Masters offers customization options for our developed urban luxury homes. Because we also offer demolition and removal of a pre-exisiting home, you can begin to customize your new development from scratch. Our aim is to build you a home that can be lived in for generations, so expect custom input during the construction of your urban home for maximum satisfaction and success.  

Interior design is an intricate and vital part of the home development process and is always offered for homes built by McKinley Masters. We create plans and designs for all homes prior to the start of construction. Alternatively, you’re welcome to bring a set of plans to our initial consultation meeting, but McKinley clients often receive more value for plans drawn by our in-house team, inclusive in the final price of the build. We can also provide interior design consultations following the construction of your custom home.
