Picking out the home of your dreams is exciting, especially when you get to see it delivered and then placed on your land. This is where your dream of homeownership becomes a reality, and we want to ensure you’re well prepared for this process. So, let’s discuss what you need to know.
Working with a Home Consultant
While your home is being built inside one of our home building facilities, you'll be working with your home consultant to make sure your land is ready for your home to be delivered. Specifically, you will want to know what you are responsible for and what our home center experts can help with when it comes to preparing your home site and the final, on-site installation of your home.
Most home centers will handle hiring site preparation crews and the on-site completion of your home for you. If your home center does not, they can provide you with a list of local contractors that are familiar with our homes and guide you through your home site preparation journey. This may seem overwhelming to do alone, so we want to make sure you and your home consultant work together to ensure all the building and code requirements are met for your new home!
So what do you need to do to make this process go smoothly? Before the contractor begins preparing the land for the home’s delivery, be sure to let them know ahead of time if they’ll have to:
- Avoid trees, brush, fences or other obstacles
- Avoid low hanging power lines or an underpass
- Drive on narrow roads with tight corners
- Cross someone else’s land to get to yours
You’ll also work with the on-site construction crew to plan the delivery of your home and determine the layout of the home on your land. Once you and your crew have determined that your land is accessible for home delivery, land preparation can begin.
