Here are 4 components:
1. Planning Stage: This is the moment you finally sit down with an architect and begin to draw up plans. This process can take anywhere from 30-90 days based upon revisions. I’d say the average time though is probably about 60 days.
2. Site Prep and Clearing: This is a stage where we prepare the lot for the home. This generally takes about 1-3 weeks.
3. Construction: This is the part where we actually build the home, plan for landscaping if any and prepare for final inspections. This can take anywhere from 6-8 months usually depending upon complexity and weather.
4. Final Inspections and Closing: This is the part where we invite third party inspectors and do what we call “punching out” the house. We like to get ultra critical at the end and make sure the house is tight and free of final concerns. Of course, there is usually post move in follow-up at certain points within the first year to make sure the homeowner is satisfied.
