What to Expect When Building a New Home

Stages in the New Home Building Process

Building a new home or doing a remodel can seem like an enormous challenge. However, by breaking it down into its key elements, it becomes more manageable and easier to digest.

We have outlined stages of the construction process so that you may understand the sequence followed. All stages usually occur but the order may be modified. Keep in mind this listing is meant only help initialize ideas for those thinking about building in the future. As with all homes that are custom built, there will be some variation to each job.
