David Weekley New Construction Home Buying Process
Below are phases that you can expect over the next several months while your new David Weekley home is being built.
Ready, Set, Wait?
At the start, you might not see much activity on your homesite. Don’t worry! A lot of behind-the-scenes work is happening. This is when David Weekley secure the various permits, finalize plans, distribute blueprints to the plumbers, electricians and framers and order materials. It might be several weeks before any major activity begins on your homesite, but rest assured that all of the background work is being done to create a smooth process!
Stage 1: Foundation Complete
This is when David Weekley prepares the homesite, set foundation forms, install in-slab plumbing and when the concrete is poured and cured. This is the point when many people wonder if their home will be large enough. Seeing the foundation without walls can be very deceiving.
Stage 2: Frame Complete
You'll be surprised how quickly this is done. One day, there’s nothing but slab. A few days later, there’s a home – well, at least the framework of one, with exterior and interior walls, as well as the roof. This is when you get your first true sense of your home’s breadth and shape.
