The building process is underway…
The building process begins once building and development permits are approved.
Foundation – The lot is surveyed and staked out, and then the ground is excavated. Form boards are put in place where concrete is poured to form the foundation walls.
Structure – Your home will start to take shape once the framing of the walls and roof are completed by construction professionals. Windows are installed and the roofing material is complete. This is also called the ‘close up’ stage.
Rough-ins – Your homes infrastructure is created when the utilities of the home are complete. Electrical, heating, plumbing and AV wiring are all roughed in and ready for drywall and insulation.
Exterior – During this stage, the home’s exterior walls are finished and the interior work will now begin.
Insulation/Drywall – All exterior walls and ceilings are now installed with energy efficient insulation. Once the inspection of insulation is complete, all walls and ceilings will be dry walled.
Interior – Many of the finishes and fixtures you have previously selected are now being installed. Your home is beginning to have its own personal style.
Your home is complete; you have done your final walk through and are ready to move into your new home. All legal paperwork is finalized, you are officially a homeowner. Congratulations!
