When You Choose Us
Once you choose Furin Construction as your home remodeler and a preliminary budget is established, we coordinate a design meeting to shape your ideas into a real-time workable model. Based on the scope of the project, we can also work with one of our recommended architects and interior designers to help build your dream home. A final project pricing will be delivered to you once the design and finishes have been selected. Upon approval of the scope of work, plan and pricing, we will prepare a contract for construction, and we're on the way to creating the home of your dreams!
Most construction projects require a building permit that we obtain through your governing jurisdiction. During the two-week period it takes to receive these permits, Furin begins the planning and scheduling phase of your remodel. Once the permits are in hand, we prepare your home for construction by protecting the spaces outside of the construction site with erosion control and landscape protection, as well as dust prevention inside the home.
Demolition is our first order of business - and one of the most exciting! We will conduct demolition and the removal of debris in an orderly, systematic and clean manner. Following demolition, if required, concrete placement and foundation work occurs. There may be one or more inspections required during this process. Framing follows then the installation of all the mechanical "rough in" (plumbing, HVAC, and electrical).
Once all the mechanical work and framing is installed, we have our first round of inspections for jobs requiring a permit. Some jurisdictions also require an inspection of insulation and envelope sealing. We meet all inspectors. You should expect a few days of limited construction activity during this inspection process but these days are taken into consideration and are part of our expected duration for your project.
Once the "rough in" inspections are complete, we're back off and running. Walls are covered with gypsum board followed by finish items. This is when your vision starts becoming a reality - the wood trim, flooring, fixtures, cabinetry, countertops, appliances and such are installed.
We work diligently throughout this entire process to minimize the "punch list" at the completion of the project. As we near completion, we constantly critique the project and perform "pre-punch lists". A list of small, detail-oriented adjustments which are addressed accordingly.
When we feel satisfied the project is up to our standards, we will walk through the project with you to make sure it is up to yours and identify where, if any, corrections need to be made. We will also show you important features such as pipe shut-off locations, operator's guides, electrical breaker locations and more.
At the time of substantial completion, we will go through another round of inspections from the county or city for your area. Once again, we take care of this entire process. Occasionally, a "Certificate of Occupancy" will be required for you to move in, and we obtain that for you.
