Construction Outline

Construction photo 1Having your new home built is exciting, especially when you understand how the process works!

Building any home requires extensive coordination between head office, site superintendants, contracted trades, municipal employees, consulting engineers, and legal offices. Your most crucial contribution to this shared endeavor is ensuring you complete your décor appointment when required. As soon as you finish your appointment and sign your colour chart, all finishes and customized selections are immediately processed, materials are ordered and the various trades are notified. Construction materials for your new home are ordered well in advance to avoid complications when it is time to start building.

Even though there have been innovations and advancements in the home building industry, the process has remained the same, with what is essentially a “hand-built” product. Overall, the process of building a new home takes approximately 6 to 8 months. The following outline explains the typical process in the construction of your new home and will help you become familiar with what generally happens at the key stages…

For Your Safety:

We understand that the construction of your new home is a very exciting process and tempting to want to visit through the various stages. For your safety we do ask that you please refrain from visiting. We look forward to the opportunity to show you your new home at the end of “Phase 2” (prior to drywall and insulation) and at the end of “Phase 5” (during the pre-delivery inspection).
