    Pre-Start Activities

    After the excitement of dreaming up your new home, you might feel anxious without another "to-do."  Rest easy.  While you wait, we're getting things done - like finalizing the building plans and obtaining necessary permits.  It's all part of the build process.

    Buyer Start Order

    Now that you loan is approved and we've received your permit from the city, your home will be slotted into the schedule to begin construction. Your Field Manager will reach out to you to schedule your pre-start meeting to review your plans.

    Pre-Start Meeting

    Join your Field Manager at the pre-start meeting when we double-check that everyone is in agreement regarding the build.  We know that open communication is essential to a smoother build with fewer surprises.

    In this meeting we will:

    • Meet your Field Manager
    • Review home plans & design selections
    • Establish future check-ins and update methods to keep you informed
    • Answer any questions you may have

    The Foundation

    Let's build your new home!  There's nothing quite like the thrill of knowing your foundation has been poured.  It's not uncommon at this stage to feel like your home looks small.  Don't worry, that feeling will change as we start the frame.

    The Frame

    After the foundation is poured, skilled tradesmen will start the frame.  At this point, you'll really start to get a feel for your new home.

    Pre-Drywall Meeting

    This is your opportunity to review all electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems and other "behind the wall" details before drywall is installed.

    Drywall Installed

    As the drywall is installed, you'll start to get a much better feel for your new home living spaces.

    Finishing Touches

    It's not uncommon to squeal with excitement as trim, cabinets, and fixtures are installed during this phase.  We won't judge.

    Quality Inspection

    Our Quality Inspectors evaluate every one of our homes with a quality, top-to-bottom inspection.  You can feel comfortable knowing you're buying a well-built home.

    Pre-Close Meeting

    During this meeting, your Field Manager will educate you on the operation and care of your home systems, like plumbing, electrical and air conditioning.  Our goal is for the home to be 100% complete at this time. If anything is outside our model home standard that needs correcting, you Field Manager will document it and commit to a time to have it completed. There's nothing to sweat here.

    Final Sign-Off Meeting

    We'll walk through your new home with you and confirm that all of the items noted in the pre-close meeting have been addressed.

  • Content Section Image

    The Closing

    This is it!  After you sign the closing documents and finalize any closing costs and down payment, your loan will be funded.  Mission accomplished.  Congratulations on your new home!

    Customer Service Meeting

    Even though you've settled into your new HistoryMaker Home, we're still available to answer any questions or help fulfill warranty service requests should you have any concerns after closing. Our Customer Service Team is here to help, long after we hand over the keys.

    You may have closed on your new home, but we'll still be by your side when you need us.  If you're happy, we're happy.

What Our
Are Saying

We really enjoyed working with folks at Auburndale (our new home), especially Dean!
