Stages of Building a home
At Shaddock Homes, we provide exceptional quality and value. We have a reputation for extraordinary customer service and pride ourselves on being one of the best homebuilders in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
We realize that understanding the process of building a home is important to our clients, and knowing the Stages of Construction will help track the progress of their new home.
Before the stages of construction begin, all preconstruction documentation must be completed and approved. This includes the contract, plans, plot plans, change orders, design selections, etc. During this time, you will have a team meeting with your construction manager and sales counselor to review all documents. Engineering work will be completed, and an application for a permit will be submitted to the City.
In this stage, the site will be graded, and forms for the foundation are set in accordance with the approved plot plan. Plumbing and the foundation make up are installed and inspected. Then, the foundation is poured.
In stage 2, the home begins to take shape. Exterior and interior walls are framed and roof rafters are installed.
During this stage, the house is “dried in, ” and the exterior sheathing, roof deck, shingles, windows and doors are all installed.
In Stage 4, the mechanical work of the home is completed. This includes plumbing, HVAC, electrical, TV/phone/audio and security wiring being installed. Both City and engineering inspections are conducted for the mechanical work and framing.
Once the City and engineering inspections are complete, you will meet with your construction manager for a pre-drywall review. The house is then insulated, and the City and third-party energy inspections are performed to ensure the insulation is installed correctly. Once this step has been completed, brickwork can begin.
In Stage 6, the sheetrock tape bed and texture is completed.
In this stage, the trim for the wood floors, cabinets, stair parts and interior are all delivered and installed along with all doors. Interior painting takes place.
