Building Process

Pre-Construction Meeting
The Troy Davis Homes process begins with a Pre-Construction Meeting where you will have the opportunity to meet with your Construction Coordinator and Sales Manager to review your new home. You will walk through every aspect of your new home—from placement on the site to interior selections—as well as your timeline.

Construction
The next phase is construction where your Troy Davis Home will begin its transformation from a vacant piece of land.

  1. Foundation
    During this process, the basement will be excavated and the foundation footings and walls poured. A waterproof membrane will also be sprayed on the exterior of the basement walls. This is where the first of several Quality In-Line Inspections will be conducted.
  2. Rough Framing
    The structural steel, lumber, flooring system and engineered roof trusses will be delivered during this process and you will begin to see your home take shape. Your Construction Coordinator will complete the Frame In-Line Inspection to confirm your home is being built with your specific selections, as well as inspect room and window dimensions, elevations and bearing points.
  3. Rough Mechanicals
    Your rough plumbing—including tubs, showers, water supply lines and drains—will be installed at this time. Once complete, ductwork will be installed to property heat and cool your home, in addition to electrical wiring, switch boxes, light openings and phone and cable locations.

    Several inspections will be conducted by the local building department to ensure all mechanicals comply with current municipal building codes. Your Construction Coordinator will also complete a Rough Mechanical In-Line Inspection to verify components are installed to Troy Davis Home specifications.

  4. Insulation and Drywall
    Just before this phase of the process, you will meet your Construction Coordinator for a Pre-Drywall Orientation Meeting to inspect your new home’s inner workings, the quality of the products installed and review expectations.

    Insulation will then be installed in your walls and attic, kicking off several days of drywall installation.

  5. Interior and Exterior Finishes
    You will notice something new going on in your new home every day once you’ve reached this point in the building process. The interior trim will be installed, including interior doors, base moldings and cabinets. Another In-Line Inspection will follow to confirm the quality of the trim and drywall before painting.

    To round out the the finishing stage, flooring, countertops, plumbing and light fixtures, registers, plugs, switches and carpet will be installed. Here you will also see your driveway, sidewalks, porch posts and garage doors completed and your new home’s exterior painted.

    Your home will be cleaned and your Construction Coordinator will conduct one more Quality In-Line Inspection to ensure the property is ready for you to move in.

New Home Orientation Walk
Your new home has passed the required inspections, you’ve received a Certificate of Occupancy and your Construction Coordinator has completed the final Quality In-Line Inspection. As the final step in the process, you will now complete a detailed walk-through of the home, inspecting the entire property and learning all about its inner workings.
