Checklist for House Builders: before construction starts on your new home

 

Checklist for House Builders

You’re building a new home; it’s a very exciting time and also a big very big deal. The building and construction phase of the project is all about bringing your design plans to life, and you need assurance that things will run as smoothly as possible.

Clearly stating your needs and expectations is the ideal way for you and your construction team to be on the same page. 



Before new ground is broken, you need to run through the checklist below to ensure a productive and harmonious job site.

The best way to avoid misunderstanding is to spell it out. From decades of new home building experience Chateau’s builders recognise what creates a successful project, and (of equal importance) know how to identify potential problem causers.

Know the Answers Before the Job Starts
After the design phase is complete, Chateau with the clients in their home to discuss the details of the project. Before any crew begins to work on your new home, they will want to know the answer to important questions, such as:

• What is the best way to communicate with you, and how often?



• Where is the best place for the crews to park to minimize neighborhood disruption?



• Keys and lock boxes

• Yard signs

• Storage of materials

• Work schedule

• Completion dates and expectations

There is also a detailed discussion about dust protection, job site cleaning at the day's end and agreed-upon start and stop times for the work day.

Having this converstaion before the job begins builds a mutually-beneficial working relationship and of course trust and confidence.
