New Home Builder


Before we start: Once all pre-construction documents are completed and approved we will begin. This includes your plans, plot plan, change orders, design selections, HomePro, etc. We will have a team meeting with our construction manager and myself to review all documents.


1) Construction: In this stage, the site will be graded, and forms for the foundation are set in accordance with the approved plot plan. Plumbing and the foundation make up are installed and inspected. Then, the foundation is poured.

2) Framing: In stage 2, the home begins to take shape. Exterior and interior walls are framed and roof rafters are installed.

3) Roof/windows: During this stage, the house is "dried in," and the exterior sheathing, roof deck, shingles, windows and doors are all installed.

4) Trades: In Stage 4, the mechanical work of the home is completed. This includes plumbing, HVAC, electrical, TV/phone/audio and security wiring being installed. Both City and engineering inspections are conducted for the mechanical work and framing.

5) Second inspection: Once the City and engineering inspections are complete, you will meet with your construction manager for a pre-drywall review. The house is then insulated, and the City and third-party energy inspections are performed to ensure the insulation is installed correctly. Once this step has been completed, brickwork can begin

6) Sheetrock/texture: In Stage 6, the sheetrock tape bed and texture is completed.

7) Trim/paint: In this stage, the trim for the wood floors, cabinets, stair parts and interior are all delivered and installed along with all doors. Interior painting takes place.

This includes installing faucets, electrical fixtures, switch plates and outlets, HVAC condensers and grills. Wood floors are stained and finished, and carpet is installed. Driveways and walks are poured, and irrigation, fence, landscape and sod are installed. At the end of Stage 9, appliances are installed.
