Moving into a new home is an exciting part of life, especially if it was built from the ground up with your vision in mind. When planning your new home from scratch, you get to have a hand in designing each room to your liking. You can decide the look and feel of every area of your home along with the specific features that will be in each room. For some, planning and building a new home can be a stressful process, but it doesn’t have to be. There are a few simple steps you should know about before building your new home.
Preparation and Foundation
One of the first steps in building your new home is to prepare the site and lay the foundation for your property. If you decide to hire Thomas Builders for your project, they will start by clearing the ground of all rocks, trees, and debris. Thomas Builders will then level your site and start to dig holes to represent various areas of your future home such as the basement. Footings are then placed around your to serve as a layout and will be the supporting structure of your home. Workers will then pour cement in all of the holes and then it will dry to serve your home’s foundation.
Plumbing, Electrical, and HVAC
Once the exterior shell of your home is installed, Thomas Builders can then start hooking up the pipes for plumbing. Professionals will start connecting water lines to various parts of your home such as the kitchen and bathroom. At the same time, an electrician will come in and install all of the wires so you will have lights and working electronics when you move into your home. A technician will come in and install an HVAC system so you will have function air and heat.
One of the most important parts of any home that most people do not think about is the insulation. Proper insulation helps to keep your home’s climate comfortable and consistent, while making it energy efficient. Your home’s insulation should be highly heat resistant and installed in exterior walls as well your attic and basement. Insulation materials range from fiberglass, cellulose, and foam.
