The Steps of New Home Construction

1. Planning and Design

All new home construction begins with planning and design. In this stage, you’ll determine the essentials of your new project, such as:

  • Your Budget
  • Site Location
  • Home Design
  • Special Additions

If you’re unsure about any of these parameters, it may be worth it to contact our professionals today to get a better understanding of how to proceed.

2. Securing Permits and Approvals

Before construction can begin, you’ll need to secure the necessary permits and approvals from local authorities. This ensures that your construction project adheres to zoning laws, building codes, and environmental regulations.

3. Site Preparation and Foundation

Now that your permits are all in place, the construction site is prepared for the long haul. This means clearing the land, excavating where necessary, and laying the foundation. This foundation will be essential to your home’s future, and will act as the building block your home will be built on.

4. Framing

With the foundation in place, the first step to building your home is building your home’s framing. During this stage of development, we’ll start building the walls, floor, and roof. Notably, this is the first stage of the process where you’ll begin to see your dream home take shape.

5. Installation of Systems

During this phase, essential systems such as plumbing, electrical, and HVAC are installed. Depending on your personal goals and needs, you may have specialized systems put in place, such as heated floors or zoned air conditioning.

6. Interior and Exterior Finishes

Now that all the basic structure and systems in are place, it’s time to shift to interior and exterior finishes. That means determining the materials you’ll use for insulation, drywall, flooring, cabinetry, and exterior siding. Don’t worry though—our professionals will help you throughout this process.

7. Final Inspections and Walkthrough

Before you can move in, final inspections are conducted to ensure everything meets building codes—not to mention your personal standards for success. Taking time for a walkthrough with the builder allows you to discuss any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have.

8. Move-In and Enjoyment

Now that the final inspections are over, the time has at las arrived for you to enjoy your new home. Finally, your dream has become a reality for you and your family.
