Construction Phases

A general overview of the homebuilding phases are provided below:

Foundation – The lot is cleared, footings and foundation walls are installed,
garage slab poured.

Framing – The floors, walls, and roof are framed.

Exterior Finish – Windows, doors, house wrap, roofing, siding, and decks are installed at this time. This exterior stage will overlap several of the interior stages.

Rough-Ins – All of the “behind the wall” systems are installed including plumbing, HVAC, electric, and specialty wiring (e.g., phone, cable, sound, and security). You will be asked to attend an electrical walk-through on site after framing is complete to ensure all lights, switches, and outlets will be placed where they are most convenient for you.

Insulation and Drywall – We maximize energy efficiency with various forms of insulation before finishing the interior walls. Drywall finishing is overseen daily by the owner of the company for quality assurance.

Cabinets and Trim – Expert craftsmen install the woodwork you have selected for your home including molding, cabinets, stair railings, and doors.

Painting – Sherwin Williams paint products are used during the paint phase of your home.

Trim Out – The installation of appliances, plumbing, and electrical fixtures completes
trade work.

Flooring – The subfloors are covered with the materials you have chosen such as carpet, tile, and hardwood. Different materials are installed at different times during the construction process, but all flooring will be complete by this stage.

Punch out – Final details such as door and bath hardware, mirrors, and shelving are installed.

Landscaping – Plants, sod, and irrigation are installed at this time.
