Permits – The first step in any build process is for MHC to obtain your permit based on the plan and home lot that you have selected. Depending on where you home is located and the governing municipality’s schedule this process can take between two to six weeks. The MHC construction team works diligently during this process to ensure it goes as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Once permits have been received construction work can start. During the permitting process you may see that your property is staked, and the property boundaries are clear for the correct placement of your home.
Foundation – Time for the real work to start, that first step in construction will be the foundation of your future home. You will see the lot you selected get graded and the foundation forms set, this is also the stage where your plumbing pipes and electrical conduits are installed in the ground. Once completed your foundation will be poured, you will start to see great progress once this has been done.
Framing, Rough Mechanicals and Insulation – Now that the foundation is in the next step is framing. You will start to see the shape of your home forming; the roofing being installed as well as your windows. Your rough mechanicals will then start to be installed including your HVAC, Plumbing, and Electrical Systems. During your rough mechanicals stage your home will be inspected by the governing municipality to ensure everything is done correctly so that the insulation can then be installed. Insulation is added on exterior and interior walls, on ceiling joists and blown into the attic. You may also see some of your exterior finishes being completed during this time, like brick/stone installation as well as your exterior elevation products like board and batten and siding.
Interior Finishing – Once all inspections by the governing municipality have passed your home will then move onto the drywall and interior finishing. Now you will be able to see the true flow of your home with the drywall complete. Interior finishing including your cabinet installation, flooring, trim, countertops, and painting will now begin. You will be able to watch all your interior design selections come to life in your future home. Your final HVAC and electrical trim will also take place truly turning this into a dream home. You will then see final touches start including light fixtures, mirrors, and plumbing hardware being installed. The final step is the drywall and paint touch up, getting your home ready for that sparkling clean finish. We will be able to give you an exact close date once your interior finishes are completed.
Exterior Finishing – During the interior finishing of your home some additional exterior work is also done. You will see your driveway, sidewalk and patio get poured. Landscaping will also start during the exterior finishing process as well as your exterior painting. Sometimes the exterior finishing of the home can be affected by the weather conditions, but don’t worry we will get everything completed before we schedule our first walk through and home orientation.
Future Homeowner Orientation – There are two meetings scheduled to complete your Homeowner Orientation. At the first meeting your construction manager will walk the home with you and make a detailed list of any cosmetic or mechanical defects needing attention prior to closing. You will also be able to schedule a home inspection at this time should you choose to do so. The first meeting can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. During this time the construction manager will show you all the important details of your home and how to use them, they will also explain the home warranty programs and how to initiate any warranty service needed after closing. You will also receive your warranty details in writing which can help to explain topics in more detail. During this first meeting you will also schedule directly with the construction manager your final walk through. Your final walk through consists of going through the list of items that needed attention from your first meeting. You will be able to check those items as 100% complete and move onto closing.
