Timeline From Start To Finish?

The timeline for building a custom home varies greatly depending on the level of customization you desire. Designing plans from scratch can take longer if you have specific, unique requirements. Engineering also requires a significant period to ensure all structural elements are tailored to your design.

Permitting times depend on the jurisdiction and the complexity of your customizations. Once Mountain View Builders pours the foundation, the construction phase begins. Weather conditions such as snow or heavy storms can extend the timeline further.

Let's take a look at the stages required to build a custom home:

  • Initial Consultation & Design
    In this stage, we discuss your ideas, preferences, and budget to create a design brief. Our design team will then develop a preliminary concept plan that matches your vision. This process typically involves multiple meetings and revisions.

  • Engineering & Finalizing Plans
    After the initial design is approved, we proceed to engineering, where we finalize structural plans and specifications. This step ensures the plans meet local building codes and regulations.

  • Permitting Process
    Once plans are engineered, we submit them for permitting, which varies based on the jurisdiction. We handle the permitting process to ensure all requirements are met.

  • Site Preparation & Foundation
    During permitting, site preparation can begin. This includes clearing the land, grading, and setting up utilities. Once permits are approved, we pour the foundation. Site preparation and foundation work are critical steps.

  • Framing & Exterior Work
    Framing and exterior construction, including roofing, windows, and doors, are the next steps. Weather conditions may affect this phase.

  • Interior Finishes & Mechanical Systems
    Once the structure is weather-tight, we install electrical, plumbing, HVAC systems, and insulation, followed by interior finishes like drywall, cabinetry, and flooring. This phase includes detailed work to ensure quality.

  • Final Inspections & Walkthrough
    After all work is completed, final inspections are conducted to ensure the home complies with building codes. We then conduct a final walkthrough with you to address any last-minute adjustments.

  • Move-In & Post-Construction Support
    Congratulations, your custom home is ready! We provide post-construction support to ensure any issues or touch-ups are handled promptly.
