Walk-Throughs

During the building process, you will have a couple opportunities to view the progress of your new home on-site. We will confirm electrical placement and selections during frame stage and prior to drywall stage. Once drywall stage is complete, we will plan your scheduled close date. One week prior to closing, you will walk the near completed home with our Superintendents to makes sure everything is completed to your standards. You will go over warranty information and any neighborhood info you may need. Your final walkthrough will be the morning of closing, the last time you see the home before it's officially yours!
