Site work

1. Site Work: land clearing, surveys, fill dirt, stem walls, pad, form boards, underground electrical and plumbing, drill well (this can be done later)


2. Dry-In: slab, block, trusses, windows, doors, framing

House upgraded with spray foam installation

3. Rough-In: plumbing, electrical, HVAC, insulation,

Kitchen cabinets and countertops installed

4. Interior Finishing: drywall, flooring, paint, trim, cabinets, tile, additional plumbing (i.e., toilets installed)

Siding, stucco, and stonework

5. Exterior Finishing: simultaneous to phase 4. siding/stucco, paint, soffit and fascia, stonework, trim (shutters, decorative, etc.) septic (if needed) sidewalks, driveway, landscaping
