Home Construction Process After Natural Disaster


Hi, my name is Adriana Guy with Emerge Rebuild. And today, I want to talk about the construction process for rebuilding after a natural disaster. Please keep in mind that these are just opinions.

Step one is designing your new home. If you sign with a bigger builder, they should take the lead in assisting you with the design of your new home. If you go with an architect or designer independently, be sure to keep your builder in the loop so that you don’t exceed the construction cost budget.

Step two. Your builder or contractor should get all engineering completed including structural, soil, etc. Then they should go forward with permit applications.

Step three. Your contractor will break ground once permits have been issued.

Step four. As draw payments come due throughout the construction process, we recommend that homeowners hire an inspector to ensure that the construction is being completed properly prior to releasing any draws.

Step five. Once your home reaches completion, your contractor will submit an occupancy permit. Which once issued will allow you to move back home.
