Selecting a Design

Determine the floor plan, exterior type and color:  stucco or lap siding, roof:  tile or composition shingles, patio area, interior: ceiling height, rooms with crown molding, cabinets, and tile or granite countertops. Ask your Project Coordinator any other questions you may deem important.  If you have specific ideas for your floor plan, our Design Center can draw your plans.


The Contract

When you have chosen your plan, your Project Coordinator will set up the contract. He will explain all the details, discuss your financing requirements, and refers you to lenders if necessary.  When your contract, financing arrangement, and construction schedule are completed, you will sign the contract and an Earnest Money Deposit will be collected.


Financing:  Ask your Project Coordinator for a list of lenders


Construction Phase:  Building a home is a complex process with many phases


Phase 1  Once Permits from the county or city are obtained, the trenches are dug, forms for footings, and plumbing  are placed preparing for concrete pour.  A thorough inspection is done by a county or city building inspector.  


Phase 2  The framers layout and build the walls, set the trusses, nail the roof sheeting, and lace the windows.  Your home is wrapped with a vapor barrier for moisture protection and lath with 1” styrofoam and chicken wire.  The roof is papered and loaded with either tiles or composition.  The electrical wiring and plumbing are installed.


Phase 3  Once your home passes the framing inspection stage, the drywall is hung, taped, textured and prepared for painting.  After the trim, doors, crown molding and baseboards are installed, the interior is painted. Cabinets and countertops are finished.


Phase 4  While the interior is in the finishing process, the exterior stucco finish is applied. Final grading of your site, fencing and landscaping are completed.


Phase 5  The county or city building inspector does a Final Inspection and a “Certificate of Occupancy” is issued.  You will do a “Walk through” with your Project Coordinator who explains the workings of certain items, general maintenance issues and addresses any concerns you may have.
