Our Cincinnati Custom Home Builder Construction Process

First of all, when you choose Hensley Custom Building Group to create your dream home, we handle the heavy lifting of the design details, specification listings and subcontractor vetting and bidding.

Plus, we walk you through every stage, from purchasing land to designing your home, to the construction process. From before you break ground until after you move in, we work to make your experience seamless.

Construction Begins

Using your final plans, we request all the necessary permits. Then, we stake the house out on your site. Excavation of the foundation can then begin. Once the foundation walls go up and underground plumbing is installed, the work is approved by an inspector. The garage and basement slabs are poured.

The steel eye beams are installed and sub-flooring installation begins. Wall framing happens next. Following wall framing the trusses and roof sheeting are added. Then shingles are installed. The windows are set. At this point, we walk through the project for mechanical and with you. We are looking for you to confirm the layout before mechanical systems are put in place. This is an exciting time and an opportunity for you to get a feel for the home’s layout.
