You’ve chosen the perfect community and home plan. Here’s an overview of the work that goes into planning and building your home
The site is prepared for construction. The land is surveyed, and the foundation begins. A proper foundation not only keeps out moisture and insulates against the cold, but it also takes into account soil conditions, water tables, and backfill material.
The home begins to take shape during the framing stage. Fire-rated lumber is used to erect walls, contour rooms, and construct the “bones” of the house.
Spray foam insulation provides an outstanding building envelope that helps drown outside noise, reduce space for pests, maintain livable indoor temperatures and improve indoor air quality. At this stage, the weatherproofing involves the home’s roof, subfloors, windows, exterior doors and walls. With spray foam insulation and a tight, structurally sound envelope, you will conserve energy and save money.
Mechanical, electrical and plumbing are next. At this stage, all electrical wiring, outlets and breaker boxes are also installed. The walls remain open for a city inspector to examine the installations so that a building permit may be finalized.
Your home’s interior and exterior start to take their final forms. Drywall is hung throughout the home. Flooring and tile finishes are installed. Brick, stucco and/or stone go up on the exterior.
At this time, you join the construction team for a walk-through inspection, itemizing any final punch-list items. Any items identified will be corrected before you are introduced to your new home.
The new home is now complete and ready for move-in. You will be introduced to your new home, pointing out all its unique features and systems. In as few as 10 days, you will have closed and be given keys. At this time, you will transition to customer care for home maintenance tips and warranty.
