An Example timetable of the Construction Process


(Starting after the building permit has been issued)


*Note: This particular schedule was for a simple 1000 sq.ft. home… this is a perfect scenario schedule. Winter construction and weather will affect/delay the timeline. The schedule listed is just to help homeowners understand the approximate sequence and process of building their home. A schedule is flexible so homeowners should not be surprised if their particular home does not follow this exact order.*
