What To Expect When Working With Custom Home Builders
When work with a custom home builder to build your dream home in the Chicago suburbs, you’ll find yourself less stressed and more confident if you begin with an accurate understanding of what to expect throughout the process.
- Design & Site Location – Your custom home builder’s designer will work closely with you to develop a design that suits your family’s lifestyle and tastes, as well as including design features and materials that give the healthiest possible environment, and state-of-the-art energy efficiency. This phase of the project will also include a survey of your property, so that your final design can take advantage of a great view, or existing landscape features you want to keep.
- Site Prep & Foundation Pour – Preparing your property for building may involve things like grading the site of the foundation or installing drainage plumbing. Once the foundation is poured, your project will get its first inspection.
- Rough Framing, Electrical & HVAC – After the foundation passes inspection, your custom home builder will work through the processes of rough framing and installation of the electrical and HVAC systems, which will later be enclosed in the walls. The framing, electrical, and HVAC will all be inspected before the next phase of construction.
