As an experienced contractor we are quite knowledgeable with construction terminology. As in most professions, communication is one of the most important aspects of the job. If you can't understand what's being discussed, then the possibility of making mistakes will increase and can create problems with the overall quality and progress of the project.

Just What is a "Cope" Anyway?

What is"Crown Molding" anyway?

". . . communication is one of the most important aspects of the job. If you can't understand what's being discussed, then the possibility of making mistakes will increase . . ."

To help our customers, and the project itself, we have created a dictionary of construction terms that are essential for communicating and understanding the process of building a luxury home. We hope that you take the time to review this dictionary and prepare yourself for the home building experience.

We don't expect you to become a master craftsman like Paul Lehmann, but we all want the custom home building experience as efficient and friendly as possible. You may begin browsing our glossary using the A-Z index below.
