Our end to end services for custom new house construction guides you through each phase of a home construction project from consultation to final inpsection. Our documented process is strictly followed to ensure consistent quality and workmanship in all our homes. We have provided the phases of a typical new home construction project below to give you an idea of what to expect.
This phase takes your ideas and dreams and puts them to paper. Our team works with you to draw up what you want. This can take some time as you will work with the designer to include all the features that you want in your new home from the basement up. When you are staisfied with these drawings we send them to an architect to finalize. Then the architecture plans are used to obtain permits for site, electrical, plumbing, septic or sewer, wells or city water connection. We want this Phase to be exciting and stress free for you and we will guide you through offering suggestions and/or recommendations based on our expertise in custom home building.Occacssionally what you want may need to be adjusted in order to meet building codes and ensure that your new house is solid yet still maintain that unique look you are looking for.
After site tests have been taken and all permits are obtained, the excavation begins. Our skilled workers bring in the heavy machinery to dig your foundation and construct the footings. This must be done concisely and accurately as your entire house will depend on a firm foundation. After the basement walls are constructed, a vapour or waterproof film will be applied to the outside perimeter. An inspection must take place before we backfill to the barrier to ensure that all materials and methods meet code.
If your hosue is a typical framework construction, the outside walls and interior walls will now be constructed. A standard wood-frame home is built with 2” X 6” outer walls and 2” X 4” inside walls with computer-stamped trusses,has fiberglass batt insulation with a vapour barrier and uses oriented strand board (OSB) for the exterior shell. It is important to get the roof on quickly at this point to protect the interior from weather damage. Sometimes the roof trusses will be built on site however it is common to see your roof trusses being pre-constructed elsewhere and shipped to the site. A crane will postion the trusses and our team will secure them in place. It is at this point that you can begin to envision the layout of your home and imagine how it will look when it is complete. Typically the plumbing and electrical layout is roughed in at this stage. When all this is compelte there will be another inspection to ensure that everything is up to code.
Our skilled tradesmen are now installing the drywall and the choices you made for the interior and exterior of the home. They will paint, install the kitchen and bathroom fixures. lay the flooring, finish the electical and plumbing, and tile the bathroom. Meanwhile another team is completing the exterior of the house, installing windows and doors, applying stucco, and completing the brickwork, eaves, fascia and troughs. Some landscaping will de done to level your yard, entrance, and driveway. Our team will be in constant contact with you at this time to ensure that all your specifications are met and to advise you of any issues that may arise. Final inspections will need to be completed for electrical and plumbing. Arrangements are made to hook you up to city hydro and sewer or septic and well if you are rural.
Our quality control team will now complete an in-house inspection and will identify and correct any minor issues that arise.
