The hard work of making design decisions, planning and permitting is now over. Phase V is when you get to watch it come to life. Depending on site conditions and the size of the home, construction will take two to four months.

The most satisfying and remarkable aspect to the construction phase is how quickly it advances day by day. Through the site work, demolition, drainage, concrete, and foundation you will see crews prepping the site, digging trenches, laying plumbing, and setting a foundation. It is clear that work is happening, but the progress being made doesn’t jump out at you. Then it comes time for framing, and in what feels like a short weekend, the wall and roof framing goes up and the outline of your new home is suddenly standing in your backyard.
Framing is when you first get to see the real-life version of the drawings you’ve been working with over the previous months. Throughout the construction process you’ll have subcontractors coming through to work and the city inspectors coming by to confirm that the project complies with earthquake and fire safety in addition to building code standards for plumbing, gas, electricity, and water.
A New Avenue team member is available to you throughout the whole process to interact with the construction team, monitor the project’s cost, and deal with any questions that might come up. Our goal is to deliver a seamless, enjoyable experience from the beginning to move-in day.
