Site Construction – Last Steps!


There are just a few steps left before construction of the foundation begins on your new home – a big day! None of these are really complicated, so let’s cover them all now.

Delivery of Documents:
Your building permit application was submitted after the surveyor came out and created a plot plan, based on the footprint of your home and the septic system. (the plot plan and copy of the health permit had to be submitted at the time of building permit application). Right! That was done and now any remaining contract documents are given to your Lockridge agent. These include the Building Permit (a copy goes in a box on the property during construction), Funding Agreement, Approved Construction Drawings, Permits, Plot Plan, and Certificate of Insurance.

Temporary Water & Electricity Set Up:The construction crews are going to need water and electricity to complete your new home. A temporary hose bib connected to either a private well or public water supply is installed. Temporary electric service is installed by an electrician and an account is set up in your name at the power company.

Dumpster Delivery & Porta Johns:
Trash handling and Porta Johns are scheduled to be placed and picked up on your property.

Septic System Installation:
If your property requires a private septic system, it can be installed anytime between the lot clearing and grading/landscaping steps and doesn’t interfere with the building process.

Site work is done! The construction crew is ready to start building the foundation of your new home! Paved driveways, sidewalks, and landscaping (seeding/sod/etc) occur after your home is complete.
