Building a New Custom Home Step-by-Step
At Budget Construction we walk each and every one of our customers through the entire home building process. As such, we’ve developed a handy step-by-step guide that will give you a brief overview of the steps involved in building your dream home.
STEP 1: Laying the Foundation
First, the foundation of your home will be planned out according to your layout designs. A home’s foundation can be either a flat slab of concrete or it can be built to contain a basement. Once the foundation is poured a building inspection will take place to ensure all aspects are up to code. When the inspection is completed the framing that formed the foundation will be removed and the next step of the building process will commence.
STEP 2: Building the Frame
During this phase of the building process your home’s shell, sometimes called a skeleton, will be built on your foundation. The home’s walls, flooring system and roof frame will be installed and sheathed. Sheathing will be applied to the frame in order to protect it from the weather elements and prevent water from infiltrating the materials. This will ensure that no rot takes place or mold builds up.
STEP 3: HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical Systems Installed
When your new home’s outer frame is completed then the house will start to take shape. This is the step when the plumbing and electrical system will be installed as well as any associated fixtures. Your water and sewer lines will also be hooked up. Any large plumbing item, such as bathtubs, will also be installed because it’s easier to transport them at this stage. Any HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) units needed will also be put into the home. The light fixtures, switches and other items will be installed. At this point another building inspection will take place.
STEP 4: Insulation is Installed
Insulation is a home’s best defense against the outdoor elements and temperature. It also plays a role in reducing outdoor sounds from entering the home. Insulation provides energy efficiency and helps you maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. The thermal performance of the insulation will determine how well the material resists heat transfer. In the majority of homes all exterior walls will be insulated along with the attic and the ceiling of an unfinished basement, provided you chose to have a basement installed in the foundation. Fiberglass and mineral-wool matts are typically used for insulation with paper attached that acts as a barrier against the air.
STEP 5: Drywall and Interior Finish
Next, your home’s interior walls will be installed, typically called drywall, and other finishes such as trim can be installed as well. The drywall is then taped and a coat of primer paint is applied. Any exterior finishes such as stucco, brick or siding will be completed. Once those steps are completed, any fixtures such as counter tops, decorative trim, baseboards, cabinets and vanities can be installed. Any outside walkways or patios that you chose to have installed will also be completed. At this point your home will really start to take shape and when all is completed you’ll be ready to move in and enjoy it.
Once these steps are completed and a home inspection has been finalized you will be ready to move into your new home. It’s an exciting moment when you first enter a home that you built and designed exactly the way you wanted it to be. Having the experienced crew at Budget Construction by your side will go a long way towards getting your dream home just right at a price that will fit into your budget.
How Much Will Building a New Home Cost?
The cost of your new custom home can vary based on several factors. A house can have many different components to it. For example, you could build a home with a garage attached to it, multiple levels, a basement or certain advanced stylish features like a rotunda. You can choose to add other amenities like an outdoor patio, paved walkways, beautiful landscaping and a paved driveway.
The total cost of your home will depend on labor time, type of materials and the quantity of materials needed to complete the project. Larger, more complex homes will obviously demand more labor hours. Also, you may choose to have your home constructed with various materials such as wood siding, which is a bit more expensive than other alternatives such as vinyl. How large and intricate your home is will determine how many materials are needed to complete the job.
