Home / The Construction Process
Though the average time taken to build a home is about 9 months, the geographic location, the type of home being built, and the actual construction process can influence how long it takes to build a home.
As you may know, overall market conditions also affect the timeline of building a home. A busy housing market generally results in longer durations while a down market shortens the timeline.
Below is an estimate
Our complete home building timeline can be broken down into three main facets as follows:
DESIGN AND PLANNING PROCESS
o Exterior door and window quality control reviewo Thermal modelingo Permitting/inspections application o Purchase Orders processing which is the final design and planning process before construction begins, which is called Stake-Out
This can also be broken down into five phases.
• Phase I – Excavation (1.5 months) – This involves the stakeout, excavation and back fill.
• Phase II – Lock Up (1 month) – This is the framing of dimensional lumber, floor joists and roof trusses.
• Phase III – Electrical and Mechanical Rough Ins (1 month) – This is where we complete the rough ins for electrical, plumbing and heating/ventilation.
• Phase V – Finishing (2 months) – This is where we complete painting, doors, millwork trims, cabinetry and flooring.
And finally, the most exciting day of all, possession day!
