Once a building permit is issued, you can take a deep breath: The ball is in our court. Gene Kopaygorodsky, the owner of K Homes, always says, “If the planning is done right, the execution becomes fun and easy.”
The construction of your house will take approximately 150 days. Two months prior to the completion of your home, we will give you a completion date so that you can begin planning for the closing.
Here are a few common topics regarding the construction process. We encourage homeowners to contact us anytime to discuss any questions or concerns. Email is preferred, however please call if you have an immediate need.
Making changes to selections during the construction phase
K Homes can accommodate changes to your initial selections. There is a $250 charge, plus any costs required to make the change.
Visiting the building site
Most construction will be done between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Homeowners are welcome to visit and walk through the job site, but we require advance notice in order to make sure your visit is safe and supervised. Hard hats are required when on-site, and two will be provided to you at the pre-construction meeting.
Prior to drywall, our field superintendent will go over all the rough-in plumbing, HVAC and electrical. The purpose of this walk-though is not to make changes, but to make sure that everything has been installed according to the plan, building specifications and building codes.
Weekly updates from the superintendent
Homeowners receive weekly updates from the field superintendent, explaining what was completed in the house that week and what progress to expect the next week. The superintendent will also answer any questions you might have, and provide you with a closing date approximately two months prior to the home’s completion.
Home orientation and final walk-through
Before you close on your new home, our field superintendent will go over everything in the house, such as manufacturers’ warrantees, and the field representative will answer any of your questions about home maintenance and what to expect during the first year in a new house. Home orientation and final walk-through will be scheduled 7-10 days prior to closing.
