The Elevation Process

Building with Elevation is simple and fast!

WEEK 1

Site Preparation

Site preparation includes work such as excavation and staking. Workers will clear, excavate, and level the lot accordingly. Then stakes with flags will be driven into the ground to mark the footprint of your home.

WEEK 2

The 3 F’s

The “three Fs” stand for footings, foundation and framing. Once the footers are in place the foundation is built. The foundation of your home may be a full basement, or simply a slab. Next you’ll see framing go up. The floors, walls and roof are “framed.” Framing is inspected, and once it is approved, exterior finishes are applied.

WEEK 6

The Guts

Your home building timeline takes off weeks 6 to 8. This is when your home gets its guts. Heating and cooling systems are installed, plumbing lines are run and the electrical system is put in place.

WEEK 9

Flooring and Paint

You can expect flooring to be installed, and doors and cabinets to be set in place. Trim is put up and the second coat of paint goes on the drywall. Your home is finally looking like the drawings your architect showed you months ago.

WEEK 12

Final Countdown

You’ll notice a lot of commotion happen on site this week. That’s because now is the time when sub-contractors install faucets, light fixtures, plugs and appliances. You can expect that loose ends will be tied up, and the small details of your home are completed.
