Prep and Pouring Foundation
After your blueprints are finalized and you get the go-ahead from building authorities, your lot will be prepared for building. It’s heavy equipment time, so expect backhoes, bulldozers and dump trucks. Workers will clear trees and other obstructions, level the lot and dig the holes and trenches. Now , it time for footings and foundations. Most footings and foundations are poured cement that is reinforced with steel rods called rebar. Footing forms are laid along the outline of your home and filled with concrete.
