Construction usually begins 30-45 days after you sign an Agreement to build. It is, however, subject to potential holdups such as local government approvals, utility availability, construction backlogs, delay in the developer’s delivery of lots, availability of materials and contractors, changes requested by the homebuyer, and the degree of difficulty encountered in initiating those changes plus the time for independent inspections. The most frequent cause of delay is usually weather, specifically rain or other poor conditions.
Your Haddix Construction Sales Professional will be able to tell you when construction should begin on your home, as well as the average number of days for normal construction in your community.

Before construction begins, you’re guided through the entire building process, starting with a meeting to introduce the construction team and to give you the opportunity to ask any questions about the construction timetable.

Prior to drywall installation, you will receive a guided tour, allowing you to inspect the inner workings of your home, view its quality components, verify optional features you have selected, and ask questions.

Before your final walk-through, Haddix Construction conducts its own quality control check to ensure everything is in proper working order and up to quality standards. At this time, any needed repairs or touch-ups are made, and the home is thoroughly cleaned in preparation for the Pre-Closing Orientation.

When your home is finished, your project manager and salesperson will take you on a room-by-room tour to demonstrate the quality features and operating procedures for all aspects of your home and will explain our service procedures.

Once you are all settled in, we check back by letter, phone, or even with a knock on the door to ensure continued satisfaction.

Eleven months after closing, we reiterate our commitment to satisfaction by again taking the time to handle any required warranty work, discuss issues, or answer any questions that you may have.

The construction of a Haddix Home is divided into several key stages:

• Permits and approvals are secured from the local building authority.
• Haddix Construction determines where your home will sit on the home’s site.
• Your home’s position and orientation (“right” or “left”) is determined by such factors as terrain, drainage, utility easements, and municipal requirements for setback and side yards. Due to technical requirements, Haddix Construction assumes sole discretion for home placement.
• Your home is surveyed and marked to show final positioning.
• The land is cleared of obstructions, and the soil is prepared for construction.
• Existing trees may be removed from the home site as necessary, based on state and local laws and sound building practices. Haddix Construction does not accept responsibility for the life of existing trees.

This is the most important stage of construction. Careful planning and inspections take place to ensure steel is installed properly and proper footing depth is achieved before concrete is placed.

  • Footers are either dug or formed to proper depth.
  • Reinforcing rods are installed in the forms for the type of wall construction that follows.
  • Whether your foundation is a basement, crawl, or slab determines if the wall will be made of block or concrete construction. In most situations, basements are concrete and crawl and slab will be block.
  • Lot grade is established.
  • After the foundation is in place, the structure is ready to be framed, a process that normally takes one to two weeks.
  • The framing for each floor plan is individually engineered to meet structural code requirements for the geographic location.
  • Wood studs, beams, floor joists or floor trusses and rafters are used to create the skeletal structure of the home.
  • The exterior walls, interior walls, and roof are erected.
  • Exterior OSB sheathing and House wrap is applied.
  • Windows and exterior doors are installed.
  • The eaves, fascia, and overhang are built.
  • Frames are inspected per local requirements.


This is where we button-up the exterior. Once it’s completed, the house is considered “dried in.”

• Vinyl Siding, soffit, and other cornice work is installed
• Brick and Stone veneer is installed during this stage.
• Roof shingles are put into place.

It can be difficult to see the progress that’s being made during this stage, but important work is going on inside the walls of your home. These following steps occur:

  • Wiring and cables are installed, including electric, alarm wiring, RG6 cable, telephone, and plumbing lines.
  • HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning) equipment and ducts are installed.
  • Fire Caulk and form insulation is added to all exterior voids in corners, plates on the first floor, doors and windows, and penetration of wall plates common to the attic.
  • Once the mechanical systems are installed and inspected, insulation is placed in the exterior walls.
  • Mechanical systems are inspected per local requirements.

Finally, your home is beginning to look less like a construction project and more like a home.

  • The sheetrock, also called drywall, is installed.
  • It is then taped and floated to cover nail and screw holes and seams.
  • It is finished to be paint ready.

The trim stage focuses on the fine carpentry details that finish a home.

  • Bath and kitchen cabinets are built and/or installed.
  • Moldings and baseboards are installed.
  • Interior doors are hung.
  • Stairs are installed (where applicable).

Painting brings color and personality to your home. Haddix Construction uses a Sherwin-Williams washable flat-based paint.

  • Interior painting, caulking, and staining begins.
  • High-grade enamel is applied to all designated trim material.
  • Exterior painting is done, dependent on weather conditions.

Once the painting is finished, the mechanical details can be added. During this stage:

• Plumbing fixtures are installed.
• Electrical fixtures are installed.
• The HVAC compressor and thermostat are installed.
• The HVAC components are matched for maximum
• The alarm keypads and control panel are mounted.

Finally, many of the final details can be added to your home.

  • Mirrors are hung.
  • Ceramic tile and wood floors (where applicable) are installed.
  • All final paint and stain is touched up.
  • Any remaining floor moldings are installed and painted.

Once the interior of your home is complete, we focus on the outside. Then it’s time to transition the home over to you.
• Sidewalks, driveways, patios, and fencing are installed (where applicable).
• Your home is again inspected by the local building inspectors (where applicable).
• Your Haddix Construction Home is now ready for the homeowner orientation, closing, and move-in.
