What do new home builders do?


For builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform Okawville, IL market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Okawville, IL market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. They also obtain the necessary permits.

A good builder has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on Okawville, IL zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

Builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders.
