Framing

Framing

After the blueprints are finalized and the lot you are building on is prepared for building its time to create the rough framing of your home and start getting vertical. This stage has a couple different names including the skeleton or shell, but in a nutshell, this means that you will be seeing wood, steel studs and roof trusses. This is when the blue print start coming to live and the exterior will start to look like a house.

Drywall

When the home is considered "dried in" you will begin the process of installing heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical wiring. After the inspector signs off on this its time to insulate the walls. The next step is when things start to get real, this is when the dry wall goes up. After the drywall goes up its time to prime and paint! The final coat of paint goes on the walls and everything from kitchen counters and cabinets to bathtubs and vanities will be installed.
