We believe understanding the process of building a home is important to our clients. With our long-standing subcontractor relationships and our extensive experience, we can help you through the entire building process.
Excavation & Foundation
To begin construction, the site is excavated and foundation forms are placed and inspected according to the site plans. Concrete is poured and cured followed by backfill of the foundation to prepare for framing.
One of the most exciting stages, the home takes shape as walls are framed and roof trusses set. Once framing is complete, the project superintendent meets with the homeowner to conduct an onsite walk through.
Mechanical & Electrical Rough-ins
At this stage plumbing, HVAC, electrical and low voltage wiring and lines are installed in framed walls.
All framing and trade work is inspected by the local jurisdictions to verify code compliance. Once approved, insulation can be installed and inspected.
Sheetrock is hung. Tape and texturing are completed. Suddenly the shape and space of the home is revealed.
Trim & Paint
Trim work and doors are installed throughout the home. Painters prep all woodwork and apply paint coatings.
Cabinets are delivered and installed. Countertops are templated and installed.
Tile & Flooring
Shower waterproofing is completed. Tile showers, floors and backsplashes are installed. Hardwood flooring and carpet are installed. Exterior driveways and walks are poured.
Final Trade Work
Plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems are completed. Faucets and light fixtures are installed, and equipment set. Once all trade work is complete the project superintendent inspects for any touchups and corrections. Final inspections are completed through the local jurisdictions.
New Home Orientation
The home is finished! The onsite superintendent will conduct a new home orientation and key turnover to homeowners.
