Custom Home Builders

How long does it take to build a custom home?

North Carolina new home building timeline

A typical timeline to build a custom home by Travars Built Homes is about 6-9 months, once the project is underway. We divide your home build timeline into two stages – pre-construction and construction.

What are the key phases of a pre-construction timeline? 

Before we break ground on your new home, we’ll work with you through:  

  • Floor Plan Selection
  • Floor Plan Customization and Design
  • Build Permitting
  • Pre-Construction Prep

Here’s how the overall timeline for your new home build project works:

During the Plan Selection Phase, we help you find a new home floor plan that suits your lifestyle, budget, and home site. Start with some popular floor plans from a variety of architects on our site. Tell us what you’re looking for, if you want something different! The floor plan selection phase usually takes 2-4 weeks.

Custom Home Builders

During Floor Plan Customization and Design, we help modify your floor plan. What are some common changes we make? Here are the kinds of changes we can make to your plan as part of our design phase – at no extra cost to you:

  • Making a master shower larger
  • Separating sinks and vanities
  • Opening up the kitchen or adding an island
  • Adding a mother in law suite or small apartment in the home
  • Turning a front facing garage to a side load

Our in house design team works closely with you and your budget. This phase usually takes 2-6 weeks.

New Custom Home Builders

Next, we submit for Build Permits. We’ll do your site assessment in conjunction with your floor plan footprint, water hookup, and setback requirements for your lot – taking things like the slope of your lot and the length of your driveway into consideration. The permit phase usually takes 5-7 weeks.

Upon county approval, we break ground onsite by clearing and prepping for your home’s footing and foundation. Once your footers are in the ground, the typical build time is about 6-9 months.  

New Home Build Timeline

What are the key phases of the home build?

  • Excavation: Grading, clearing and site preparation
  • Foundation, damp proofing
  • Framing
  • Windows and doors
  • Roofing
  • Rough mechanics, electrical and plumbing
  • Siding, exterior paint
  • Insulation
  • Drywall, paint primer
  • Interior trim, flooring
  • Cabinets, counter tops
  • Trim outs/ fixture installs
  • Final paint
  • Final punch work and clean up
  • Move in day!

Our build process at Travars Built Homes is outlined in your personal online portal that keeps you informed about everything happening in your home. You will also have the option to meet with your builder on site at all key points during the build, to talk about what’s happening now – and what’s next.

3 Ways to Get a Better Bathroom for Your Guests

3 things to think about when you design your guest suite bathroom in your custom home.

There are 3 different approaches to take to having a bathroom with privacy for your guest bedroom.

  • Approach #1 The bathroom is attached to the guest bedroom, and hallway. This being the least private or non private option.
  • Approach #2 The bathroom is between two bedrooms, also know as a “Jack and Jill” – this being a semi-private option.
  • Approach #3 The bathroom is only accessible through the bedroom – this allows for complete privacy.

Example Of Approach #1 – Bath Shared with Common Areas

One of the most common layouts for a guest suite maximizes usability while minimizing cost, by including a full bath that has access from both the guest bedroom, and from the main areas.

There is a second door from the guest bedroom directly into the bath, so guests have full privacy, but homeowners are spared the expense of an additional private bath.

Example Of Approach #2  – Jack and Jill Bath

This floor plan illustrates a “jack and jill” bathroom, where two bedrooms share a bathroom. With this layout, a guest would share a bathroom with someone in another bedroom, but would have the ability to close off that bathroom for themselves when it is they use it.

Jack and Jill Floor Plan | Pittsboro New Home Builder

This floor plan, the Blackstone also has a powder room on the main floor, so the designation of this layout would be that the jack and jill bathroom would typically be limited to use by people in those two bedrooms, with semi-private usage.

Example Of Approach #3 – Full, Private Bath

In this layout there is a full bath off of the mudroom and beside the guest bedroom. With a small expansion to the exterior wall of the bathroom we can change the functionality of the space.

Take a look at the redline modifications. By expanding the bathroom slightly, it can be accessed en-suite, providing total privacy for the guest suite.

The redline modification at the foyer illustrates how a powder room can be added, to help ensure that privacy with the existence of another bathroom on the main floor.

These three guest bath layouts are some of the most common, but of course there are dozens of variations.
