Pasadena Custom Building for Luxury Living

San Marino • Arcadia • Monrovia • Glendora

We have seen a transition of design themes over the years from traditional regional architectural styles to more individualized designs. New materials and techniques, together with new attitudes, have opened the door to exciting personality focused designs.

Arcadia - Custom Home

Whether building a new custom home, or remodeling an existing home, everyone wants to make their home special. However, for many owners building a custom home or starting a remodeling project can be overwhelming. Where do you start? Are there budget considerations? What about the style, design, and plans? Is the property in the right neighborhood or location to make changes that will increase its value? Are there community or homeowner association restrictions that may impact the design or plans?

Others wonder if there is a professional that they can trust who will take full responsibility for the entire project? Should you form a team? Which professionals do you need, and how do you select them?

"The 5 Simple Steps"

Inspired Design

Exciting design ideas drive every project. It all starts with our listening and idea session.

Tipping Custom Homes understands that you want your own special place that reflects your style and taste.

STEP ONE: “Let’s Talk.”™ This is a listening and idea session to establish the scope and estimated budget range for your project. Your space needs, design preferences, and personal details are all identified.


STEP TWO: “Storyboard Process,”™ This step is when your design team is selected and ideas are transformed into a preliminary schematic floor plan. Your estimated budget range is revised to reflect the accepted plan and a chart of allowances is created for the selection process that follows. Specific code or structural issues will be assessed and resolved at this stage.


STEP THREE: “Rendering to Scale,”™ is where selections and specifications are finalized to complete the bid process. A full set of construction plans are created to maximize design, innovation, and value engineering to meet your budget. Upon completion, a final construction agreement is presented for your approval.

STEP FOUR: “The Big Event,”™ is when the Tipping Custom Homes construction team transforms your plans into reality. Your plans are built to specifications.


STEP FIVE: “Happily Ever After.”™ Your project has been completed, on time, on budget, and Tipping Custom Homes has earned your 5-Star review.

Our process, “The 5 Simple Steps” allows you to describe what you want, the design team draws it, you approve it, and Tipping Custom Homes builds it.

By following “The 5 Simple Steps,”
You'll love your home!™
