Process of New Home Construction

Once they have the building permits the contractor can start the earthwork on the site. This will including any grading that needs to be done to create an even level foundation for the new home construction. During this part of the process the earth is removed or added as needed. All underground piping is also installed. If there is going to be a crawl space or basement it will also be added at this time. Once all the earthwork has been done the next step is to start framing the houses using steel or wood studs. The builders will create walls, roof framing, and floors at this stage. They may also install windows and exterior doors. Once the building of the house has been completed it is time to put the roof on to create a structure that is watertight. To give the house a finished look they may install brick or exterior siding.

Once the framing work and exterior work is done it is time to start on the interior work. Electrical and mechanical contractors will run the plumbing pipes and wiring throughout the ceiling and walls. The heating and cooling systems are installed and tested, molding and interior doors are put in place and then the drywall is hung. Next the fixtures and hardware are added and the walls are painted. The new home construction is finished and ready for an inspection by the local authority to make sure that the home meets safety and local building codes. An occupancy permit is issued so the family can move in.
