1. SITES WORKS
The first stage of construction is to prepare the site; this is when the bobcats/ diggers will prepare the platform in the ground. Any retaining walls needed may be completed at this time and there may even be a requirement to let soil and fill settle, so don’t be impatient if progress appears to be slow, we have it all under control.
2. BASE AND FOUNDATION
The foundations will be dug and set, and next the concrete slab will be poured to form the floor. For the first time you can see the footprint of exactly where your house will sit.
3. FRAMING ( 1 - 3 WEEKS )
Wall framing will be erected and roof framing will be set into position. This is an exciting time as now you can really visualise your home. This stage of construction feels most exciting as changes to the house are happening very rapidly.
4. CLOSE IN ( 3 - 5 WEEKS )
The roof goes on, the exterior wall cladding is fixed and windows are installed. For the first time your house starts to looks like a home. You can now start to see what your finished home will look like.
5. FIXING / INTERIORS ( 3 - 5 WEEKS )
Now we start work on the inside; plumbers and electricians will plumb and wire your home, insulation (i.e. Pink Batts) is fitted, wall linings (i.e. GIB board) are secured, and our painters will apply your chosen paint colours.
6. FINAL FIT OFF ( 3 - 5 WEEKS )
The last stage of construction will see your kitchen installed, bathrooms finished, tiles and carpets laid and all of the finishing touches like towel rails, door handles and the like.
7. MOVING DAY
On completion of your new home we will perform a quality-control check and arrange the final council inspection if required. We’ll also get your home fully cleaned before you move in. You’ll now need to make final payment and then we can hand you the keys and celebrate your new home.
