The home building process timeline can vary depending on the type of home, the actual area in which it’s being built, weather concerns, and a few other factors. However there are a few things that everyone should be aware of. Here are a few aspects of the home building process timeline prospective home buyers and home builders should consider.


Before just about any decisions are made in the home building process, you need to first budget your finances. Hopefully, you’re aware of your plans to buy and build months before the actual process begins, so you’ll be able to spend a few months saving some money, but it’s essential that you at least set a budget at some point before the process begins. If you wait too long to actually determine what type of financing you’ll be working with and how much money you have to contribute, you might end up not having enough money to finish what’s been started, which can lead to a stressful financial nightmare.

Architectural Home Design

Once you’ve determined a realistic budget, it’s time to work with your home builders on the actual design of the home. Having a personalized home built for you can be amazing and will only add to the love and affection you have for your property as you spend the next few decades enjoying your new home. Make sure you talk to your builder about every aspect of the design so you’re both on the same page. You should identify whether or not you want certain personalized aspects of a home like patios and other design layouts. Of the 648,000 single-family homes completed in 2015, roughly 183,000 had a patio and a porch and 14,000 had a patio and a deck. Home designs should be discussed in great detail with your production builder before any construction begins.

Home Site Preparation

Before the actual building of the home begins, the home site will have to be properly prepared for the next few months of work. If the home is going to have a full basement, a much larger hole will have to be dug, as well as the proper formation of the footings and cement pouring. Once the foundation is set, the building of the home officially begins.
