In our blog series Custom Home Building Steps, we have been following the building process step-by-step. At Sunset Homes, Calgary's bespoke home builders, educating our homeowners about their new home builds is essential. We know that our homeowners are always interested in the steps of the pre-construction, design, and construction stages because having this information allows them to plan around their new build.
Your Custom Home Foundations
In step one of the homebuilding process, we have learned all about your custom home foundations and why they are an essential step for your infill home. Additionally, we talked about the advantages of building with ICF and how this material allows having a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly home.
Framing Your Modern Infill Home
In step two, we learned about the Framing stage. This stage consists in assembling the bone-structure of your custom home and is the starting point for the shape of your home. As green builders in Calgary, we emphasize on the use of quality and efficient building materials in every step of the construction process.
Mechanical Installation in the Building Process
In the third step of the custom home building process, we have all the items that constitute the mechanical installation. An essential feature of a quality build is an effective and efficient mechanical system. Your new custom home's mechanical system is largely comprised of the HVAC system (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning).
During this stage of the construction process, we have many crews working simultaneously. On the one hand, we have the electrical, security, and plumbing services being roughed in; on the other hand, your custom home builder will install all the ducts needed for heating cooling and ventilation, all designed to provide you with a comfortable living environment.
The following steps will be wiring for any system you choose to have at home, including home automation, the receptacles for electrical outlets & lights, installing the insulation, vapor barriers, and then finally drywall. The mechanical installation in your new custom home will control the air temperature, humidity, air movement and quality, and overall efficiency of your home. Get guidance from your experienced home builder to have an efficient and environmentally friendly system in your new dream home. You should also get tips on mechanical and electrical safety for after your home is built.
