If you have plans to have a new home built, you can benefit greatly by reading this blog. My name is Lance Harcourt and last year I decided to build a new home. Before the contractor and the construction crew began working, I wanted to learn everything I could about new home construction. I spoke in depth with the contractor, I talked to friends and family who had new homes built and I also did research on my own. I wanted to know the home building process from start to finish. I learned a ton of information about home building, such as surveying the site, pouring the foundation, framing the structure, and installing beams and joists. Learning all of this information allowed me to be involved in the house building process. I hope that this blog gives you the information you need when your house is being built.
