A famous American leader remarked about doing things “not because they are easy, but because they are hard” – and it applies in the case of building a new home. When you and your home builder are committed to such an important undertaking, it’s vital that things go according to plan. However, it is not advisable to make haste on the project.
The entire process starts at the initial consultation for your house and land package, where one major element is to decide on a target completion date. Many projects take between seven months to one year to finish, depending on various factors such as the intricacy of the house plans, the land survey on the plot, and the securing of building permits, among other things.
Your house will have a number of important systems to be completed – each requiring the expertise of a sub-contractor. Your home builder will have the resources to mobilise the contractors, but coordination is essential in hammering out the timetable. For example, the foundation and framing crews may have completed their tasks in good time, therefore scheduling the roofing and siding crews next. The mechanicals, insulation/drywall, and interior crews can be slated next over the next several months.
Erecting an important structure, like a house, is always a complex and time-consuming process. However, if the planning factored all the variables and settled any issues, you will be assured that the final product is something that will truly last.
