Only in Savannah--Design Build

At Nautilus we understand there is virtually an unlimited number of questions you can ask your builder when interviewing them for construction of your renovation project or new home. At the end of the list, what you will learn is that Nautilus is the only builder in Savannah that will give you what you want most: Price Security, Schedule Security and a good warranty.

Guaranteed Estimate!


Easy. All day long. At Nautilus, we think every project should finish on budget. Isn’t that what the contract price is for? Allowances are simply another way of spelling change order and since those are a disaster for everyone, we don’t do allowances. And since most folks agree it’s kinda hard to guarantee the price of something if you don’t know what the item is, we ask you to make timely decisions. If you don’t make the selection, we can’t price it and it is not included. But once you make your selections, we can price them, include them and guarantee the price 100% no exceptions. Fair?

Guaranteed Schedule!


You better believe it! No ifs, ands or buts about it; we guarantee our schedules. Here are what we consider to be 3 pretty reasonable conditions to giving you the schedule security you deserve:

Because nobody ever knows how long getting a permit will take, we only guarantee the schedule after we have the permit in hand.


Of course, weather delays are not included but we tell you when the delay has occurred and we document it at the time of the event so there is no surprise at the end of the project.


The big one comes next--we can only guarantee our schedule if you make the required selections according to the selections calendar we give you during the design stage. Some folks still insist the project needs to finish on time even when there are outstanding decisions yet to make. At Nautilus, we believe in a true partnership with our clients. A partnership where both parties keep their commitments to ensure the on-time completion of their home.

Awesome Warranties!


The state of Georgia mandates builders provide a 10-2-1 Warranty: 10 years structural, 2 years mechanical deliver systems (water, electrical and HVAC) and 1-year workmanship. However, at Nautilus we would be embarrassed to build you a new home or remodel your kitchen under those terms.

Quite simply we put our money where our mouth is and instead of 10-2-1 we provide 10-5-2. Every builder speaks platitudes about pride in “craftsmanship,” but are those builders willing to back up their craftsmanship in writing with warranty terms as strong as ours?

Price Security. Schedule Security. Awesome Warranties!
