Building Your Home - Start To Finish

What is the first thing that you need to know in order to get your dream home started? You might want to look at what funds you expect to have for your project, use our mortgage calculator to get an idea, then read on down the page. This calculator is for informational purposes only and is not intended to be used for anything beyond this purpose. Enjoy!!

We have the ability to complete any project whether small or large. Typically we provide the home, the freight and the set.  With local contractors that we have done business with for years, we are able to handle any size project that you can imagine. Just follow these simple steps and you will see how easy it can be.

1.) Contact us with the plan that you are interested in. Whether you walk in, email, or call us, just let us know what you are interested in.  And we can start pulling together all the information you need to decide what options you want, which floor plan you are going to use, or if you need to custom design your own plan.

2.) Have a meeting with one of our sales team.  If you call ahead we can set up a time to meet with you and explain everything that you may need to know.  Even if it happens that you cannot meet with us face to face we can do a phone conference and pull your package together through email, or snail mail.  We are here to work with you.  Convenience is part of our customer service, because we understand that sometimes life is just too busy to stop and get things planned.

3.) Once your floor plan is picked and you choose what you want to do for options, then we forward your plans to the off-site builder and start getting bids from the contractors who will complete your project. This is the cost estimate process which will ultimately provide you with the information you need to take to your lender so that you can get your loan approved. At some point during this process you will sign the contract with us, stating that you are going to buy the home, so that we can proceed with ordering your house. 25%-30% of the contract is due before the home can be ordered.  Once that order has been placed, the ball gets rolling very quickly and it won't be long until you start seeing exactly how hard we work, and how quickly we can make your dreams come true.

4.) There are several things that are standard in every contract and those are the following.

     A. Permits: These can include but are not limited to; address permit, driveway permit, septic permit, well permit, engineering foundation plans submitted for building permit, plot plans these are most of the permits needed but every county is different that we offer our services to take this stress out of your hands. Permits can be a pain...

     B. Septic and excavation including profiling and inspecting the hole, installing the septic and excavating for the foundation.   Septic Trenching  Septic Tank In Place  Excavation of Basement 

     C. Foundation Work: Forming the foundation, Inspecting the forms, Pouring the foundation, Strip forms, Top plate.     Basement Walls Poured  

5.) Building your home at the off-site operations center. Steps four and five happen at the same time. While all the site prep work is being done, the house has been ordered and is being built. That is one of the reasons we are able to complete a project in such a quick time frame. There is no waiting for the house to be built, it is constructed in a sealed environment while the site is prepped and when things are ready the next step happens; delivery of the home.

6.) Framing out and back-fill of the basement, or crawl space in preparation for the home being delivered. Pouring the concrete for the basement floor is generally completed at this time as well. Backfill The Home   Framing    Pouring Basement Floor   Pouring Basement Floor

7.) Paying off the home comes before delivery of the home can be completed. Then the home is shipped to the delivery sight and the final prep work is done before the setting of the home. The day the crane arrives means it is time to set your home on its foundation. Setting the Home  Setting 2nd Half  Finishing the Set




8.) At this phase things can vary a little, depending on what your contractor has set in place. You can have your temporary electric brought in, your water well dug, and this is also the time when the interior finishing starts. Some of that interior finishing includes finishing the marriage line, running plumbing, installing fixtures, lights, carpeting or tiling, or dry wall work. Water Drilling      Temporary Electric  Marriage Line & Drywall        

Final Steps: The final steps are made between you and your project manager, but we will do a final walk through with you and make sure that everything meets your satisfaction. The homes are all serviced with us for one year after completion and we make sure that you our customer service does not stop when your home arrives.
