Indoor work always takes longer, there's a lot to do, different trades, different materials, critical dependencies on the schedule, including inspections, and they'll take longer if changes are made. The next step in the homebuilding process begins with the site. A crew will have to clear the ground and level it before construction can begin. In many areas, additional infill is required for the house to reach a minimum flood height, as required by the Federal Government.
Then the shoes are dug and poured out. A stem wall is then placed and filled. All underground pipes and electricity are placed in the stem wall, then the slab is poured. After pouring the slab, the outer wall of the block is placed and then a row of lintel is placed and poured, which secures the walls to the shoes.
Like any other region, the type of project plays a role in the average. Homes with specifications took 6.5 months to build, houses built by contractors took 10.7 months to build, and houses built by owners took 14.3 months to build (the longest term of owner-built projects). Obviously, the size of the house will also affect construction time and just because a house is single-family doesn't mean it's small. Prefabricated homes can help homeowners move to a home quickly and, at the same time, reduce construction time.
While buying a home that's already on the market is usually easier and takes less time, future and future homeowners may wonder how long it takes to build a home that fits their needs.
