Our Process

At William Blakeney Building Company we focus on getting the details just right and making sure every element of your home flows seamlessly into the next. And, most importantly, we accomplish this while building your home right the first time.

We take great pride in building one of the most important investments you will ever make. With your help, we can create a unique, well-built home that includes all of the features and details that make it “yours.”

Building a home is going to be very different from most other purchases you make, because:

• You get to watch as your new home is created in front of you.
• You have more opportunity to personalize the end product.
• You have many opportunities to ask questions and discuss details as construction progresses.

The Construction Process

Pre-Construction Meeting

You’ll meet to review the home plans and specifications, and to become familiar with the construction process.

Construction Begins

Your home is about to take shape very quickly — starting with site preparation and continuing through foundation, framing, roofing, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. You are welcome to make casual visits to your home as it comes to life, provided you follow the safety rules.

Construction and Finishing Continues

This phase of construction includes sheetrock, cabinets, trim, tile, paint, flooring, and appliances.

Homeowner Orientation

A New Home Demonstration is your opportunity to take a look around and make sure that we have installed your selections and options as you ordered them and to identify any “punch list” items that may need to be corrected.

Move In

Once you’re settled in, don’t forget to share your William Blakeney Building Company experience with your friends. And keep in touch…we look forward to hearing how much you are enjoying your new home!
