Excited about building your home! You've picked the location, the builder, gone through the mortgage pre-approval process. Sat down with planning and design. Now you are ready for the construction of your new home to begin.
But, there are processes the builder must follow to get to the end product. Your new home.
After your plan and design meetings, the plans are ordered, engineering is ordered and the plans are submitted for architectural approval. This process could be from 4 to 8 weeks depending on the scope of your design. If there are changes you are making to the builder's plan, these changes need approval. Approved, then the blueprints are ordered.
The plans are submitted to the city and the necessary permits are ordered. Visiting your lot from time to time, you may wonder what is going on when it looks like this!
This is a picture of how the form boards of the home will look like on your lot. The lot is graded and then the form boards are inspected to match the blueprints of the home.
Rough plumbing of the home and slab pour will be next.
The grid is designed by the engineer. Builders have found that the plastic that is placed over the grids before pre-pouring prevents fewer foundation issues. Once the slab has been poured, it may take up to 7 days to cure depending on the temperatures. Inspections will take place on the slab and then your home is ready for framing.
