Building a new home is a complex process involving multiple stages. Here's a breakdown of the typical steps involved:

Step 1: Planning and Design
The first step is to work closely with an architect or designer to create detailed plans and blueprints for your dream home. This stage involves determining the layout, number of rooms, architectural style, and overall aesthetics. At Atlas General Construction, we collaborate with you to ensure your vision is captured precisely.

Step 2: Obtaining Permits and Approvals
Before any construction can begin, various permits and approvals must be obtained from local authorities. Our experienced team will handle all the necessary paperwork, ensuring compliance with building codes and regulations.

Step 3: Site Preparation
Once the permits are secured, the construction site will be prepared. This may involve clearing the land, grading, and installing utilities and infrastructure. We take great care to minimize environmental impact and ensure a safe and efficient work site.

Step 4: Foundation and Framing
The foundation is the backbone of your new home, and it's crucial to get it right. Our skilled crew will pour the concrete foundation and erect the framing structure according to your approved plans. This stage sets the stage for the rest of the construction process.

Step 5: Exterior and Interior Work
As the framing takes shape, our team will focus on the exterior and interior work. This includes installing windows, doors, siding, roofing, plumbing, electrical systems, and drywall. We use only high-quality materials and follow strict quality control measures to ensure a beautiful and long-lasting home.

Step 6: Finishing Touches
Once the major construction is complete, it's time for the finishing touches that truly make your home unique. This includes installing flooring, cabinetry, fixtures, appliances, and any custom features you've envisioned. Our team of skilled craftsmen will pay meticulous attention to detail, ensuring a flawless final product.

Step 7: Final Inspection and Move-In
After a thorough final inspection to ensure compliance with all building codes and regulations, your dream home will be ready for you to move in. We'll walk you through every aspect of your new home, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with all the necessary documentation and warranties.
