As the homeowner what are my major responsibilities during construction?

During construction in a Turnkey project, there will be certain things required of you. Obviously these will vary by project but there are a few specific things which you must take care of in order to keep things moving and on schedule.

When asked to do so, contact the power company with your billing information shortly after the contract is signed. This will help ensure we get temporary power as soon as possible.

Sort out what you will be doing for flooring, cabinets & vanities and light fixtures as soon as possible. If we're supplying these components to your new home then no problem. If we're not then it's important to advise your chosen suppliers/subcontractors well in advance of approximately when their goods or services will be required chedule. Also please let us know whom you have chosen so we may assist you in coordinating their work.

Aside from the “personal taste” type components mentioned above, as a homeowner you will have to help us coordinate and manage any sub-trades you may have hired directly. This responsibility will extend to your own “sweat equity labor.”
