There are a great number of steps involved with new home construction. However, they can be broken down into about two dozen major projects.
According to howstuffworks.com, these are the major phases of home construction:
- Grading and site preparation
- Foundation construction
- Installation of windows and doors
- Rough electrical
- Rough plumbing
- Rough HVAC
- Finish electrical
- Bathroom and kitchen counters and cabinets
- Finish plumbing
- Carpet and flooring
- Finish HVAC
- Hookup to water main, or well drilling
- Hookup to sewer or installation of a septic system
- Punch list
Several of these processes are executed concurrently, but this is a pretty good rundown of the major steps in a typical home construction. I will be linking to the appropriate tags as we progress through each phase above.
