Master Building Schedule (pg. 2)


This house building schedule will get you through the process, step-by-step.

It is offered only as a guideline to help planning in the building of your house.  It is based upon the schedule that I use.

No assurance is offered that this list contains every task you will have to perform to successfully complete your house.

Every house building project is unique, with its own specific tasks.  Building code requirements differ by states, counties, and cities.

 

Foundation - week 1-2 (continued)

  • Have soil treated for termites, if required.
  • Rough-in electrical conduit, if needed.
  • Measure plumbing locations for accuracy.
  • Check slab frame for square corners, level boards, grade beams, and accurate dimensions.
  • Have foundation pass inspection.
  • Pour concrete slab.
  • Order lumber delivery for framing.
  • Order foundation survey if required by lender.

  • Begin framing.
  • Hire electrical contractor.
  • Hire HVAC contractor.
