Building Process:

Contract Accepted — Your contract and all necessary accompanying documents have been received in the Contract Administration Department, and a Sales Manager has accepted the contract by endorsing it.

 

Permit Received — A building permit to build your home has been received from the municipality. The superintendent assigned to oversee the construction of your home received his “Start Package.” It contained all the plans and paperwork on your house. The house has also been placed on a dig schedule to have the excavation work done.

 

Basement Excavation Completed — The hole for your basement, crawl space or slab has been dug, and the sewers have been brought in.

 

Footer Completed — The forms have been built into which the concrete is poured to form the footers for your house’s foundation. A municipal inspector has approved the forms, and the footers have been poured.

 

Foundation Completed — The block for the walls was stocked at the home site, and the masons laid the block to form the walls of the crawl space and/or basement. In communities where poured walls are an available option and you selected this option, or in communities where poured walls are required, these walls would be completed by the end of this stage.

 

Backfill Completed — Tuff n/Dri® basement waterproofing has been applied. Gravel has been installed around the outside perimeter of house, the municipality has inspected the foundation, and the dirt has been pushed up around the block. The steel package (I-beam and posts) has been ordered. A temporary driveway has been put in. The lumber package to frame the house has been ordered, and a framer has been scheduled to frame the house.

 

Frame Completed — The frame of your home has been constructed. At this point, installation of the Andersen® wood windows, the front door, any exterior swing doors, and the door to the attached garage (if any) have also been completed. The stairs have been set, and the shingles have been scheduled for installation.

inside1imgRough Plumbing Complete — Underground drains have been installed for sewage and water. The installation of water supply lines on the first and second floors is completed.

 

Rough HVAC Completed — The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) duct work and air returns are in, as is the thermostat wire. The furnace has been set or hung. At this time the basement floor has been poured and the sump pump pit dug. By the completion of this stage, the garage floor may have been poured, and the exterior trim applied to the house. These steps are heavily controlled by the weather, and can be performed at other times during the construction of your home.

 

Rough Electric Completed — Electrical wire has been run, and the installation of the outlets, switch boxes and breaker box has been completed. The installation of the phone wire, cable, and security lines (if you selected a security system option) has been ordered. During this stage you will have seen the installation of any options you ordered that go in the walls, i.e., a central vacuum system, extra computer cabling, extra phone lines, speakers, or any number of options that require work behind the drywall. Since the superintendent does not have paperwork on what you’ve ordered, this is your chance to inspect things for yourself and contact the vendors to complete any outstanding work. You’ll have another opportunity to do a final check on these things at your pre-drywall conference.

 

Frame Inspected — All plumbing, heating, electric and frame inspections have been successfully attained from the municipality. Your superintendent will also have conducted a complete frame inspection at this time, and he has ordered the installation of the gas and electric meters by the utility companies.

Insulation Completed — Sidewall insulation is installed, and batting placed in the ceiling per the house plan. The air package has also been completed, which includes foam around exterior outlets and switchboxes, the frames of the doors have been stuffed with insulation, and the frame plates are caulked to the floors. By this point, your superintendent will have called you to schedule a pre-drywall conference. This is the time for you to check the wiring, cables, plumbing and HVAC before it is covered by drywall. This is also the final opportunity to check the installation of your options that you looked at during the Rough Electric stage. Once drywall has been installed, these items cannot be added, changed or moved. The completion of the installation of your security system, if chosen, occurs by that vendor after closing. Depending on the time of year and weather, the exterior painting has been completed by the end of this stage. Before this stage is completed, the drywall will have been ordered.

 

Drywall Completed — A drywall crew has completed hanging, mudding (with joint compound), corner beading, skimming and sanding the walls. They’ve also textured the ceiling. While the drywall was being installed, things have been completed on the outside, too. By the end of this stage of construction, the exterior material (vinyl siding, stucco, brick, or stone) has been scheduled or started, and the garage door has been installed.

 

First Coat Painted — Before the first coat of paint was applied, the house was prepped for this step. All floors were swept and screwed down, the drywall has dried, and it has been properly sanded. The walls were inspected and any nicks repaired. All walls were painted with the first coat, and a second coat was applied inside the closets, and in the kitchen and bathrooms. There will be another opportunity for drywall repairs, if needed, at a later date. The interior trim package has been delivered, which consists of base trim, doorjambs, door casings, and doors. If your home includes hand-stained trim, the on-site staining began while the first coat of paint was applied. By the end of this stage, some more exterior work will have been started, or completed, including the driveway, porch, sidewalks, service walks and approach. In the winter, these steps will be completed at a later date when weather permits, which is called being placed in escrow.

 

Interior Trim Completed — The doors, jambs and casings, baseboards, kitchen cabinets and base cabinets in the bathrooms have all been installed. The ceramic tile in the bathroom is in. The superintendent has scheduled the measurement and delivery of the countertops and vanity tops.

 

Finish Electric Completed — At this stage the light fixtures have been hung and plates installed on outlets and switch boxes. The breakers were installed in the breaker box. The painter has returned to finish staining and lacquering the hand-stained trim, if applicable to your home.

 

Flooring Completed — The vinyl, laminate, wood or tile flooring has all been installed, depending on what you selected. The carpet will be laid at a later time. At the end of this stage, the asphalt driveway has been scheduled, and the gutters, downspouts and conductors (to funnel the water away from the house) put in. During inclement weather, the asphalt and conductors will be installed at a later date when conditions allow for proper installation, which are called escrow items.

 

House Completed — The floor was cleaned, and the pad, tack strips, carpet and floor registers have been installed. The house now has sinks, faucets and toilets, and the water supply lines have been hooked up. The drywall vendor has returned to touch-up any nicks to the drywall, and a second coat of paint was applied. The painter returned for final touch-ups, and the cold air return grills installed. Outside, the air conditioning condenser unit has been installed. The lot has been graded to a finish, and the landscaping and sod installed. In inclement weather, these steps will be placed in escrow to occur later when they can safely be put in place, and sod farms can begin cutting sod in the spring.

 

Final House Inspection Passed — The house has passed all final inspections by the municipality’s inspector and was awarded a Certificate of Occupancy. In some cases, the Certificate of Occupancy is given to use before we’ve finished with all the steps in building your home, since it has to do with passing inspections and not whether the house is completed. If this is the case, this stage will show up on your status report as completed prior to earlier stages being completed.

 

Homeowner Orientation Meeting Held — A crew has come in and thoroughly cleaned the house from windows to basement to appliances to get it ready for your Homeowner Orientation meeting.

Custom Single Family Homes:

Every ZeesGroup  home project is designed to satisfy 3 major criteria:

 

· Your design needs
· Your land
· Your building budget

 

You will come to appreciate the skill of a talented home designer when you begin to see how many other criteria, often with competing priorities, must be addressed in a well designed custom home. Structurally the home must be sound. The home must be functional and the spaces must work for the activities taking place there. The plan should flow logically from room to room and from the inside to outside.
The home should be oriented to take advantage of views and reduce the impact of obstructions. It should be environmentally sound. Many custom homes end up satisfying some of these criteria, but it’s an art and a science to design a home that does it all !

 

2, 3 and 4 Flats:

 

If you are thinking about an investment property a 2 flat would the best choice. Zee’s Services Co. specializes in multi unit buildings which are more affordable, considering the income.

This would a good investment for the beginners, who later want to start going on a bigger scale.
