During the framing stage, your home starts to take shape.
Once the walls are framed you can start to see the different rooms within your home, especially after the windows and exterior doors & trim are installed!
At this point, you'll have a good feel for what your outdoor areas will be like and can start planning.
Mechanical / Electrical / Plumbing (M/E/Ps)
The systems in your home (heating & air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, etc.) are installed during the framing stage and may not happen in the same order every time due to scheduling.
Once framing & M/E/Ps are complete, you will meet with your Superintendent for Pre-Drywall Orientation (PDO) to see all the inner workings of your home.
This stage begins with the installation of outdoor materials and ends with final landscaping.
Depending on scheduling, certain items will happen before PDO, while others will happen at the very end of the process.
By far the best part of the process, once the drywall is hung, you'll be able to truly visualize the layout of each room and get an overall feel for your new home.
This is one of the faster moving stages of the construction process - each week that you stop by you'll see more and more progress as the colors & finishes you chose for your home are installed and the look of your home comes to life!
Prior to completion, each home is thoroughly inspected by your Superintendent and any items requiring attention are resolved.
Once your home is complete, you'll meet with the Superintendent for Orientation to learn the ins & outs of your new home!
You can expect to hear from your Superintendent weekly once your slab is poured. This is when you will set your communication preferences for a quick call, email or text message.
