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.

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!

I cannot say enough good things about Todd Rutledge & Legendary Homes. I was frustrated with the running around, people trying to take advantage of my lack of knowledge and the time that I had to spend researching what I needed to do in order to make my move a reality. Then I found Todd. He gave me the information & tools that I needed, he understood & worked with my budget & he showed great professionalism. He was timely & considerate. But most of all, he showed great integrity. I know that I can trust him to look out for my families best interest. He went above and beyond. Thank you Todd!!

I appreciated Todd taking the time to speak with me at the model house about the various options and things to consider when building a home. He was clear, direct, and easy to work with. Legendary Homes works with Redman Homes, which offers solid construction and just a few decisions to make in terms of finishes. For those who get analysis paralysis, this is a blessing! Definitely worth a look if a solid, simple home is the goal.

Todd was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. We had some questions he didn't have answers for, but he quickly researched and gave us an answer the next business day. I especially enjoy how candid he is with the cost of everything, it gives me confidence that he's not trying to minimize the costs or hide charges for later. Once we find our land, I will be coming back to see Todd.

After contacting several builders in our area, we found that Legendary Homes was by far the most upfront and honest about the costs associated with building a modular home. I started reading Todd's blog and quickly realized he was the best fit for us. We were trying to decide between a couple of pieces of property so Todd volunteered to meet us at each site to give his input. He was very patient with us and quickly answered all of our questions about the process. I would highly recommend Legendary Homes to anyone who is considering building a home.
