New construction can sometimes feel overwhelming. Rather than moving into a turnkey house, you have to be a part of all the pre-build activities.
Buying a new construction home comes with a variety of benefits, though. You can customize your home to your liking. Additionally, new construction doesn’t come with all of the hidden costs an older home may have. To be fully ready for the process you are about to embark on with your newly constructed home, we outlined what will happen once you decide to build.
- Lot prepped for building, and the foundation poured
- Frame will go up
- Plumbing, electric, and HVAC
- Insulation is added
- Drywall and interior fixtures, some exterior finishes
- Interior trim, exterior sidewalks, and driveway
- Flooring, countertops, complete exterior grading
- Trim finishes, install bathroom fixtures
The best part of this process is you get to sit back and watch the progress. You can stop by your lot and see it transform from a dirt lot to a beautiful place you soon will call home. There is no feeling like it, and it is a point in your life you will want to soak up.
Why should you know the new construction process?
It is good to know the new construction sequence because you will have to make decisions throughout the process. If you plan to have this as your forever home, you may want to do some premium installations with your plumbing and electrical to ensure longevity. Examples being premium insulation around your pipes to keep hot water hot for longer durations. Or, you may want to have dimmer switches for specific rooms and add outlets for potential additions. You can customize your home in so many ways, but knowing the process will make sure you make the choices before that stage of construction. In the long run, this will save you time and money.
