Our Building Process

Here is a typical look at what our building process looks like.

Getting Started – The first draw will be collected at the time of the contract signing.

Milestone One – Legal Compliance, Excavation, and the Footings
During this phase of construction measures are made to make sure all local government requirements are met. We also complete the excavation, footings, and block work. By this time we will have already meet with our homeowners to discussed the exact positioning of the home. Building inspections are required after the footings are poured.

Milestone Two – Installing the Main Home Systems and Exterior
The next milestone funds the installation of the homes main systems like the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems in addition to funding the siding and roofing. On larger projects, these may come in two separate draws. Before these systems are installed you’ll have an opportunity to meet with your builder to walk through the home together. You’ll also meet with our cabinet maker to select what kind of style and color you want to order. Finally, your second home inspection will be ordered.

Milestone Three – The Finish Work
The third milestone funds the drywall and finishing work. This includes items like trim work, flooring, and painting. Depending on the size of your project, this milestone may require two separate draws. You’ll have additional meetings with your builder along the way to make sure everything is living up to your satisfaction. Your final inspection from your local government will be completed and you’ll be given your owner occupancy certificate.

Milestone Four – Our Customer Satisfaction
Just because our home passes a government inspection doesn’t mean it passes ours. The final milestone isn’t funded until we are 100% complete and you are 100% satisfied. When the last of the work is finished you’ll receive a folder containing all of your warranty information and a receipt of our checklist certifying your home is Lucas Robert approved.
