For Arm River Builders, taking the project from design to construction is simple. The handoff from the design department to the construction team consists of several meetings to ensure the on-site Construction Manager understands all the construction documents clearly.
Step 4: Break Ground
As soon as we’re permitted, we’ll break ground and begin construction. At this stage, you’ll already have a thorough understanding of how the home will look and what will be in it—now, it’s simply a matter of watching your construction team make it a reality.
Throughout the construction process, we provide a more comprehensive suite of inspections and quality assurance programs than any other builder. These include our:
- Regular walkthroughs with your Construction Manager at each stage of construction where we double and triple check that everything is progressing the way you want it.
- Continuous Punch List System that allows us to track each trade and review their punch list at each stage of construction. This eliminates costly errors and rework.
- “End of project” management inspection and project review.
Step 5: Building the Home
To ensure the long life and minimal maintenance of your home, we’re diligent about building according to proven scientific methodologies. Below are just a few stages of the homebuilding process and how we address quality control in each of them. Although every home is different, the quality and systems are always the same:
Step 1: Pour the Slab
Step 2: Build the Frame
Step 3: Install the Roof
Step 4: Install Mechanicals (wiring, plumbing, & duct work)
Step 5: Insulate and Sheet Rock
Step 6: Install Cabinets, Trim, & Paint
Step 7: Bring in Countertops, Appliances, Plumbing & Electrical Top-Out
Step 8: Install Flooring, Hardware, Mirrors & Glass
Step 9: Final Touches & Final Clean
Once you’re moved into your new home, we’ll still be your builder for the next two years. We provide a warranty that not only doubles the industry standard, but is also one of the best in the business.
