11 Stages To Getting Your Dream Home


Stage 1 - The Foundation

Once your home site is cleared and the building pad is complete, we can begin the foundation. Stage 1 is complete after the concrete is poured.

Stage 2 - Cue The Framing

In our second stage, we complete the rough grade around the building pad in order to establish draining. We then begin to frame your home.

Stage 3 – Your Home Takes Shape

By stage 3, your framing is nearing completion. This allows us to install windows and exterior sheathing. Your home has begun to take shape!

Stage 4 - Every Home Needs a Roof

In stage 4, your roof is installed, alongside the mechanical roughs, which includes HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and structured wiring.


Stage 5 - Feeling Insulated

Now that the framing is complete, your home can pass the required inspections. The inspections lead the way for the insulation to be installed.

Stage 6 – Drywall and Texture

Now that the insulation is installed, we can really begin to build the interior of your home. This begins with hanging the drywall and completing the texture.

Stage 7 – Your House is becoming a Home

Drywall and insulation are necessary, of course, for every house. But it’s during stage 7 where homeowners start realizing that their dream home is coming to life. We install cabinets, doors, and trim. We then paint the interior walls and millwork.

Stage 8 – Tile

In this eighth stage, we install all tile and mechanical trims (including plumbing and light fixtures). We prepare the home for carpet installation.

Stage 9 – Floors & Finishing Touches

We install carpet and wood floors. We also install the hardware and final front door. Once this front door is installed, we’re just steps away from your move-in date.

Stage 10 – Ready for Inspection

In our second to last stage, we complete the punch-out and all final touchups. The stage is not complete until we’re certain your home is ready to pass final inspection.

Stage 11 – The Stage Is Set for You

We’ve reached stage 11 when your home has passed final inspection. Once we get the okay, your dream home is ready for you to move in to. Welcome home!
