Many of our clients who are new to the luxury custom home build process are unsure of what to expect along the way. For first time home builders, the unknown process can be overwhelming and often leaves them unsure.
To assist in guiding first time home builders through the build process, we’d like to highlight the three main phases in order to provide more clarity into the overall process of building a new home in Iowa.
Custom Build Process: Initial Phase
During the initial phase your home’s foundation is put into place. This process includes clearing the land and prepping for the area for initial plumbing and concrete work. Once the concrete foundation in place, your Des Moines custom home will begin to take shape as framing of the walls takes place.
For many home builders, this first phase is exciting, but not as enjoyable to watch as some of the later phases as there is still much left to the imagination. However, as the walls and interior structures start to take shape in the next stage, the process truly comes to life for many.
Custom Build Process: The Build Out
After the foundation and framing has taken place, your builder will begin the actual build out of your home. During this phase your home will begin to take shape and come to life as your Des Moines builder installs the sub-flooring and walls of your home.
There is a lot going on behind the scenes during this phase of your new Iowa custom home. Plumbing is being installed, wiring is being dropped in and your heating and air system will be added.
Custom Build Process: The Final Phase
Your home is almost complete and you can now imagine what it will be like to live in your new Des Moines custom home as you walk through the house. Your home’s character begins to appear as cabinetry and fixtures are installed and tile and flooring is put into place.
You will have many opportunities to walk through your home during the entire build process, but this is often the most exciting stage for custom build home owners. During this phase you will work with your Des Moines custom home builder to make any last minute design changes to materials, fixtures or appliances.
Once this phase is complete, you and your home builder will do a final walk-through of the home to ensure that everything is as perfect as you expected and then your move-in day will finally be here!
