Stages to Building a House

Simple House Building / December 21, 2021

From start to finish of building your house, there are 5 typical stages professionally known as "phases". You are not obligated to select one single designer/architect for the entire project. You may choose to authorize service incrementally to establish a comfort level between both parties. The first two stages are considered design phases, followed by two documentation/procurement phases, and finally the construction phase. The five phases of the projects are:

  • Schematic Design (SD): During this phase, the designer/architect communicates his/her proposed design to you. Not all details will be worked out during this phase, but you should have a general idea of the design approach. If your project needs to go through a design review or planning commission hearing, it will take place around 75% to 90% of this phase. If your project includes major mechanical, electrical, or plumbing upgrades, discuss the general approach for each discipline, also known as “system approach” with your design professional.
  • Design Development (DD): The designer/architect continues to develop the design. Typical design details will be developed during this time.
  • Construction Documents (CD): The designer/architect works on documents that will eventually be submitted to the local jurisdiction for building permit, and can also be used to solicit construction proposal from contractors.
  • Permit/Bid: Either the designer/architect or owner submits the documents to the local jurisdiction for building permit and waits for their comments. Meanwhile, the contractor can use the documents to provide a more accurate bid for the project.
  • Contract Administration (CA): This is the construction phase. Often, you will hire the designer/architect to administer the contract between you and the contractor. Hence the name, Contract Administration. You are not obligated to retain the designer/architect for the service.

For larger projects such as multi-million homes, sometimes the designer will add a "Concept Design" phase prior to the Schematic Design phase to establish the overall aesthetics of the project. This is an optional phase and can be eliminated if you already have a clear idea of your ultimate house.
