31 Days to Building Your Dream Home:: Stage 2

Now that your house is completely framed and stage 1 selections have been made {plumbing, appliances, lighting}, stage 2 of construction will commence.

Can Lighting Installed

This means all the rough-ins for your plumbing, electrical and HVAC will be installed. In short that means all the pipes, electrical wiring and can lighting is installed. Anything that will go behind the walls or the ceiling needs to be configured because following installation and inspections is drywall!

Ya’ll, this stage of the process is a game changer. Once drywall goes in, your house will feel like a home.

What may have seemed like a never ending process with no end in sight now will now feel completely different. You will be able to clearly see how each room in your home will look and start envisioning the finished product.
