STEP 1 Prepare site –  Time to bring in the dirt! Using a backhoe and a bulldozer, your builder will clear the lot of rocks, debris and trees for the house.  Your builder will have the lot  leveled to ensure proper drainage, and will put up wooden forms to serve as a template for the foundation, and dig the holes and trenches for plumbing.  It won't be long before you see real progress.






STEP 2 - Form the Foundation  Now that the dirt is poured and leveled it is time to build the foundation. The footings are dug, formed and poured; the area between them is leveled and fitted with utility runs (e.g. plumbing drains); and the slab is poured.  We should start seeing some real progress.






Step 3: - Pour the Slab Once concrete is poured into the holes and trenches, it will need time to cure. During this period, there will be no activity on the construction site.

After the concrete is cured, the next steps are framing.








Step 4: Time for framing: The walls and roof  are being framed (collectively known as the shell or skeleton of the house).   You can now see the floor plan.  Now is the time to pick out the Brick color, Light Fixtures and Cabinets.  

New Construction St Bernard Parish









Step 5: All Closed up: The doors, windows and roof decking is installed.  The house can now be locked up and start working on the electrical.  Time to pick out the brick.






Step 6: Complete rough framing: The shell or skeleton of the house is complete.  The roof, and the bricks are complete so it is time to lock it up.  At the same time, the electrical and plumbing contractors start running pipes and wires through the interior walls, ceilings and floors. Sewer lines and vents, as well as water supply lines for each fixture, are installed. Bathtubs and one-piece shower/tub units are put in place at this point because there’s more room to maneuver large, heavy objects.
