Property Designs. Construction will begin for a home after a SCLT qualified buyer has a pre-qualification letter from their lender. Once we have that, we take it to our lender for a construction loan and schedule construction. Federal loans such as USDA Rural development and VA will necessitate having a back-up buyer before construction begins. House Plans
