Your selected contractor will help guide your building process and schedule. For the most part, your home will get built from the ground up: starting with grading, groundwork, and foundation work, on to framing and wrapping up with walls, details and landscaping. While your contractor is leading you through the building process, they will also be helping coordinate a series of milestone-based inspections. These ensure each step of your new home meets code standards and keeps the progress moving.
- Once Building and Safety has approved your permit application and has issued your permit, you are ready to begin building.
- Work with your contractor to manage building schedule.
- Coordinate with your contractor to schedule and manage inspections.
