When building your own home, it is important you know what to expect. This helps avoid any nasty surprises and ensures you know what is happening with your build.


1. Preparing Your Site


Once all plans including budgets and schedules are in place, the first stage of construction is preparing your site in Wakefield. Our house builders undertake site clearance and preparation services that can include a variety of tasks, such as:


  • Clearing Debris & Vegetation
  • Levelling the Plot
  • Setting Out Trenches
  • Creating Access
  • Setting Up Facilities & Services
  • General Groundworks


2. Foundations


Proper foundations are essential for ensuring your property in Wakefield is safe, stable and durable. The type of foundations our house builders construct will depend on the specifics of your project. However, all foundations involve excavation and installation services as well as inspections and approvals.


3. Superstructure & Weatherproofing


At this stage you really start to see your home in Wakefield take shape. House builders construct the superstructure and make the property weathertight. This involves brickwork and blockwork, including chimneys, as well as constructing the roof and installing windows and doors.


This phase of construction creates the main structure and body of your house and makes it weathertight so interior work can begin.


4. First Fix


First fix includes a variety of services that take your build up to the point of applying internal surfaces. Our team of house builders includes plumbers, heating engineers, electricians and joiners to provide efficient and reliable building services.


When undertaking first fix in Wakefield and the surrounding areas, tasks typically include:


  • Structural Carpentry
  • Doorframes
  • Stairs
  • Electrical Work
  • Plumbing & Heating Work
  • Plastering


5. Second Fix


Once internal surfaces are in place, house builders carry out second fix work. This involves carpentry such as fitting doors, skirtings and architraves as well as installing interior fittings and fixtures. In addition, second fix services include connecting appliances such as radiators and sanitaryware.


6. Decoration


After all the building work comes painting and decorating. This is an exciting stage that lets you really make your new Wakefield home your own. You have total freedom to decorate your house however you like, whether you want a traditional or contemporary style.
