Understanding the Stages of Residential Construction
Once the location has been chosen, designs have been made and building permits have been secured we can then start the construction process.
Stage 1: Site Clearance
The first step in any construction work is to clear the lot from any unwanted grass, boulders, trees, hills, etc.
Stage 2: Breaking Ground & Excavation
Once the site is cleared, the layout of the home can begin to be excavated. Here is where the foundation is dug and the lot is graded to prevent backfilling into the home.
Stage 3: Foundation and Structure
Once dug, the foundation is then poured and structure starts to take place with columns and beams placed. Next come walls and the roof.
Stage 4: Electrical and Plumbing
Once the foundation and structure take place, next up is electrical and plumbing work. The “guts” of the house which will be built into the walls and eventually covered with drywall.
Stage 5: Plastering/Drywalling
Next up the drywall gets put on the walls making the interior of the home start to take shape.
Stage 6: Interior finishes
Once drywalled, flooring gets installed, rooms get painted, cabinets are installed, and lighting fixtures are installed.
