The Home Building Process
 
The Home Building Process

At R&B Builders we custom construct dream homes with pride and craftsmanship. Our professional carpenters, electricians and plumbers have decades of experience in building solid and beautiful homes. We will work with you through every step of step of the home building process.

Just thinking about building a new home can be a confusing, daunting and sometimes overwhelming task. Below is a collection of photos that detail the process of constructing a new home and will introduce you to several members of our professional crews. We can take the worries out of home building and make the process pleasing and comfortable. Just ask any of the many folks we recently built homes for. We listed their names and phone numbers on our References page along with a link if their home is featured on our site.

Please call or e-mail us with your questions. We look forward to working with you to build the home of your dreams.
Site Analysis

Site Analysis - we can help you decide where the best placement for your house, well, garage, outbuildings and septic system is before ground is broken.

 
Blueprint
We can help you design your new home or work with your architect.
Locating Water
Our professional hydro-seismologist will test your site and help you find the best location for a well.
Well Drilling

Our expert well drillers will bring fresh, cold and sparkling mountain water to your new home.

 
Concrete Work
Our professional excavators and concrete team will prepare your land, install your septic system and your new home's foundation.
Concrete Complete
The concrete footings and foundation are completed and the site is roughly graded.
Framing

Framing follows concrete work as the next step in the home building process. As you can tell by the snow our skilled and hardy crew works in all seasons.

 
Sheathing
The 2 by 6 framing is sheathed with OSB and then trusses are installed. Note the completed garage to your left. We often build the garage first so it can be used as a dust free and controlled temperature paint studio to perfectly finish trim and siding.
Trusses
The trusses are precisely aligned and solidly secured with steel hurricane brackets.
Roof Sheathing

After the trusses are installed both the roof and remaining walls are covered with OSB sheathing.

 
Tyvek Cocoon
A Tyvek weatherproof vapor barrier and GAF roofing shingles forms a protective cocoon around this fine home.
Siding
Milgard windows and Weather-Tite brand wood siding are installed after the house is wrapped in Tyvek.
Roof Sheathing

Once the house is fully enclosed we will install rough plumbing, electrical, HVAC and then sheet rock.

 
Electricians
Our highly trained and licensed electricians will work closely with you to design and install an electrical system that perfectly matches your current needs yet remains flexible for future needs.
Plumber
Our plumbers are rigorously trained, tested and licensed. They will help you design a modern plumbing system and then meticulously install it in your new home.
HVAC

Our professional Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) crew will help you select the most efficient and durable equipment, skillfully install it and perfectly tune it so your new home will always be cozy and comfortable.

 
Insulators
Our dedicated and safety conscious insulation crew will find the perfect balance between energy efficiency and home breathability so your home is always fresh and comfortable.
Sheetrocker
Our sheet rocking team is quick, precise and professional.
Carpenters

Our cheerful, hardy and dedicated carpenters practice their craftsmanship regardless of the weather.

 
Living Room
Now that the rough wiring, preliminary plumbing and sheet rocking is done we will start to add window, door and ceiling trim.
Flooring
Finished flooring like hardwood or tile is installed next and then we move on to the kitchen.
Kitchen

Kitchen cabinets, counters and some appliances are installed after the floor and walls are finished.

 
Team Work

Our team of well trained professionals work hard to earn the trust and confidence of our customers every day. We listen carefully to our clients and try to exceed their expectations during every step of the home building process. At R&B Builders we solve problems quickly both during construction and after our clients turn their new house into a home. Our skilled and dedicated team takes pride in our work for we understand that intricately entwined with every house is our client's dream home.
