Construction Process

At Canebrake Builders, we ensure your home is built right and according to our highest standards.

Phase I – Homeowner and Site Manager Meet

At this meeting you will meet the Site Manager to go over some specifics, such as stake out the placement of your home. This is a great time to meet and get comfortable with one another, layout expectations, and profile you with a format for asking questions and getting timely answers.

Phase 2 – Foundation Formed

Arrangements will be made for your foundation to be formed/poured.  The site will be graded, and forms for the foundation set in accordance with the approved plot plan.  A local code official will inspect prior to crews starting the foundation pour.  Plumbing and the foundation make up are installed. The foundation is poured and after it has cured the concrete forms will be stripped.

Phase 3 – Material Package to Site

Your Site Manager will order/schedule a lumber and window drop date.  Additionally, he will enlist and schedule the mobilization of sub-contractor and supplier partners.

Phase 4 – Framing

Floor systems, exterior and interior walls, and the roof truss system will be completed during this phase.  OSB sheathing is applied to the exterior walls and roof.  Windows and exterior doors are installed.  The sheathing is then covered with a protective barrier know as Tyvek house wrap, which prevents water from infiltrating the structure while allowing water vapor to escape.

Phase 5 – Rough Plumbing, Electrical, and Heating Installation

The Site Manage will arrange the siding and roof installation.  In addition, a crew of professionals will begin the rough-in phase of plumbing, electrical, and AC/heating systems.  An official inspection will occur at this time.

Phase 13 – Quality Inspection & Orientation with the Homeowner

By the time your home is completed, every desire is catered to and every concern is addressed.
