New Home in Del Webb Stone Creek part 3
This is part 3 of my experience building a new home in Del Webb Stone Creek.
We met our Field Manager on March 8th. It had been about 6 weeks that felt like a very long time before anything seemed to get going. Then BANG as soon as we were assigned Jacob our field manager things really took off. They installed the underground utilities and poured the concrete slab within 7-10 days. Next a crew came in and put up the block walls. We had to wait for inspection of the walls before proceeding but that didn’t take long. Next framers came in and set the roof trusses and sheathed the roof. It was beginning to look like a house. The interior walls were framed, the AC, electric and plumbing are roughed in, exterior doors and windows installed and the roof has been shingled all as of today April 19. Next week we meet with Jacob for a pre drywall build quality orientation. Up to this point we get weekly reports along with pictures of the weeks accomplishments.
Pictures below for anyone who enjoys construction like I do.

WE have never built a new home before. I have heard people complain about the process but for us it wasn’t stressful at all. If you decide to buy a newer resale or build new I’d love to help !
Did you notice during construction, did they put rebar in the block walls?
Hi Don About every 8 feet they put rebar down the block wall and fill it with concrete. That forms a post of sorts. My construction manager told me you could bash a whole between the posts and not effect the rest of the wall. At the base of those rebar columns they smack out the bottom block so you can see the concrete made it all the way down to the bottom and filled the cavity. Hope I explained it well :))
