Zicka Custom Homes in Cincinnati

A collaborative process.

Step 1 Bringing your custom home to life.

Zicka Homes starts your building project by ensuring that you’re in the ideal place. Our seasoned sales staff, all of whom have been with us for 20+ years, can share various communities and sites with you for your consideration. A number of model homes are also available to get a feel for the floor plan and extraordinary craftsmanship.

Step 2 Explore existing floor plans.

Zicka Homes wants your new home to be truly yours, so you meet directly with award-winning architects to brainstorm ideas. Your direct input helps the team design your home completely around your tastes and preferences.

A number of Zicka’s existing floor plans serve as inspiration for your future home. If you see one you like, we make specific alterations to suit your lifestyle.

Should you wish to see a specific floor plan in a finished state, Zicka Homes can arrange for you to see the end product of one of our previous projects. Zicka clients enjoy sharing their homes with potential buyers.

Step 3 Get a taste of the Zicka Design Center.

A visit to the newly renovated Zicka Homes Design Center gets your creative juices flowing. Browse the accent elements and fixtures to pick up some design cues for the home you envision. Chat with one of our professional Interior Designers to brainstorm ideas.

Step 4 Experience delivers an accurate price quote.

More than five decades of experience equips us with the knowledge to provide you a very accurate quote for your custom home project. We know our industry and process so well that you won’t encounter any surprises.

Step 5 Signing the contract.

All the procedures and costs are reviewed with you. Most homeowners don’t need a construction loan to start building. Zicka Homes requires just 10% - 20% down to get going. If other options suit you better, we can discuss those, too.

Step 6 An eye for design.

One of the most rewarding and fun parts of building with Zicka is your experience with our newly renovated and upgraded Design Center. Together, you and a professional designer choose the ideal materials, appointments and accouterments for your home. This attention to detail ensures that your custom home reflects your creative vision. Additionally, the broad selection of options enables you to make all your decisions in one place, eliminating multiple trips to various stores.

Step 7 Walk your home site.

Before we break ground, we stake out your future home on the building site. During this meeting, you will walk the lot with your sales person and building supervisor.

Step 8 Let the building begin.

The building process follows this basic schedule. When complete, you’re the owner of one of the finest custom homes in Cincinnati.

  • Foundation
  • Framing
  • Rough plumbing, electrical, HVAC
  • Insulation and drywall
  • Flooring (Hardwood and Tile)
  • Finish carpentry, painting and staining
  • Installation of plumbing, electrical and lighting fixtures
  • Finishing touches
  • Quality assurance inspection and homeowner orientation

Step 9 The Home Stretch

Upon completion, your supervisor conducts a thorough and informative walkthrough with the homeowner. During this meeting, any final details are discussed so the Zicka Homes team can attend to them and ensure complete satisfaction. Additionally, the Zicka associate performs a full new home orientation, demonstrating how everything in the home works. Once all the details are covered off, it’s time to call the movers. Welcome home. It’s yours!


Zicka has built us such a beautiful home and now we get to share it with our community. Our home will be featured in the Junior League Tour of Homes/Kitchens 2014. Thank you all again for making our move back home to Cincinnati a wonderful experience.
