The Building Process

ORIENTATION
At this time, we will meet with you to discuss a house plan and ask you questions regarding the home you would like to build. Once all decisions have been made a price will be proposed.

PRECONSTRUCTION
Before your home building process begins, you will be invited to a preconstruction meeting for a final review of your blue prints and answer any questions you may have.

FOUNDATION
The foundation is the concrete structure that supports your entire house. Sub-contractors set forms, pours the foundation, and installs the rough plumbing.

FRAMING
The frame is the skeleton of your home. Most of our homes are built with concrete block. Upon request we use metal studs or wood framing.

ROUGH MECHANICALS

FINISHES
This includes drywall, stucco or synthetic finish, roofing, siding, the driveway, and all major interior and exterior surfaces. Countertops and cabinets are installed, and the house is painted. Selected floor covering is installed, and any additional plumbing and electrical projects come to completion.

TRIMS
The Installation of faucets, sinks, light switches, and doorknobs are completed.

FINALS
At this point, minor adjustments are made such as paint touchups and the house is thoroughly cleaned.
