THE STEPS TO BUI LDING YOUR NEW HOME
PLUMBING Holes and trenches are dug, formed, leveled out and fitted for the installation of utilities including plumbing and electrical chases, along with wooden forms or footings that serve as the foundation template.
FOUNDATION The concrete slab or foundation of the home is poured, filling in the holes and trenches and given time to cure. Once cured, a waterproof membrane is applied to the foundation walls, first floor plumbing is installed and the dirt that was excavated is back-filled into the hole around the foundation. MECHANICALS Rough plumbing and electrical systems are installed once the skeleton is completed, running through the interior walls, ceilings and floors, including sewer lines, vents and water lines. Ductwork is installed for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning. This is also the stage where bathtubs and shower/tub units are put in place. INSULATION Insulation plays an important role in creating a comfortable, consistent climate inside your home, keeping you cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter months. The type of insulation used will vary from region to region.
FRAMING Serving as the skeleton of the home, framing includes installation of floor systems, walls and roof systems. Sheathing is applied to exterior walls, and installation of the roof, windows and exterior doors is completed.
ROOFING Final mechanicals are installed after the roof goes on. This includes installing receptacles for outlets, lights and switches, wiring for telephones, cable TV and music systems.
DRYWALL Prior to drywall, a Pre-Drywall Orientation will give you the chance to see behind the walls! Once the drywall is installed, you can really see your home taking shape!
HOW YOUR HOME IS BUILT Now that you’ve selected your favorite home design, options and finishing touches, the construction of your new home begins! Century Communities will keep you abreast of key stages and milestones during the building process.
FINISHES It is now time to install exterior
finishes such as brick, stucco, stone, siding, and exterior driveway and walkways. Next comes the interior finishes with doors, baseboards, door casings, window sills, stair balusters and all the decorative trim, along with cabinets, final coat of paint and flooring. The most exciting part will be when we hand you the keys!
Depending on the stage of construction of your home at the time of purchase, your construction manager may be able to conduct a Pre-Drywall Orientation to showcase the quality we build into our homes.
