Steps In Building a New House

The steps in building a new house can be complicated at first. We at Legendary Homes hope to make the home building process as simple as possible. The first step is to get educated of the building process.

There are many construction stages of building a home. Some steps in building a new house include clearing the lot, digging the hole for the basement or crawl space. Then installing the footers and the foundation walls. Once the basement walls are set, any underground plumbing for a basement bathroom will need to be put in and inspected by the plumbing inspector.

Then the flat work contractor can come in and pour and finish the basement floor.

The next step is bringing the modular home in onto the building site. Legendary Homes excavator who is subcontracted normally will back fill the foundation the day the house is brought in. For insulated pre cast basements, we are careful to be sure to brace the walls and not backfill all the way up to avoid issues with the foundation. This is an important step in the building process.

Special attention is also required in preparing the house and foundation before back filling all the way up once the house is set on the foundation. Straps need to be nailed to the house and braces need to be put between the floor joist for added support.

Set day is normally the day or two after the house is delivered to the property. If the site allows we will “roll set” the modular home onto the foundation. If the site does not allow a “roll set” then we will use a crane to set the modular home.

Once the house is set then the building construction process continues.

Electrical is one of the first things we get done. Having the service installed and inspected is critical to getting power.

If the new home is on a basement we try and build the stairway as quickly as we can to make it easier for the subcontractors to have access to the basement to get their work done.

Mechanical work such as gas line and any duct work connections or even a new furnace installed if required is also part of the building process.

The well is drilled normally right after the house is set and then the water line and pressure tank is put in a day or two after that. Plumbing of the drain lines and connecting the water lines will also be part of the building process. This is done after the pressure tank is put in and the power is on at the house.

Installation of the septic tank and drainfield will also be done near the time of the modular home set.

The average cost of building a house can be hard to figure out without having more information about the project. Location, types of soil, size of home, what types of options/upgrades are going to be done, are just some of the information needed to figure out the cost of building a new home.

I was looking for a modular home for my mom. I called and they were closing for the day, but Todd offered to stay open for us to come look at the model. He was very professional and answered all of the questions we had about purchasing a home. I definitely would recommend working with Todd and his staff!

We are very very pleased with the experience we have had with Todd. We have dealt with other builders and the experience was no where near the ease and personal attention that he has given us! His communication far exceeds anything we have seen!

Todd was a pleasure to meet with...We've been looking for quite some time to purchase a home, but this seller market has been tough, so we decided to look into modular homes. Todd was able to get us into a consultation quickly, answered all the questions we had for beginners, broke down the pricing and potential unanticipated costs, and presented us with a great deal of material to go home with and review. Eventhough we were able to get an offer accepted on a home within a couple days of meeting with Todd, we will definitely be considering a modular home with Legendary Homes for our future purchase. Thanks Todd!
