6. Framing & Installation of Hardware
Now that you’re at the framing stage, it’s easy to see daily progress and this is where the excitement begins as your dream home takes shape before your eyes. It can be difficult to visualize how the various spaces of a home come together, but this stage makes it possible to experience the sizes of your rooms, hallways, bathrooms, etc. If you notice some areas are not built to your expectations, now is the time to make any adjustments.
Including in the framing are the beams, rafters and hardware. This is a critical part of the construction process, because everything needs to be framed and lined up perfectly. Here is where you and your contractor need to think about everything within the larger picture – the electrical, plumbing, water proofing, windows, and doors – to keep your dream in perspective.
