What happens during the timber or steel framing of your new build or renovation?
When your timber or steel framing gets constructed, it’s your first look at your overall home’s shape and layout. This is known as the Frame Stage, and it’s an exciting time. It’s also critical to get things right now – before it’s too late or expensive to change them.
In this episode, we talk about the next stage of construction, which is the Frame Stage.
This is where the skeleton of your home gets built … the frames of the walls, any upper floors, and your roof frame. And there are a load of decisions you need to make before all of this work gets wrapped up inside your walls, so the finished home works well.
Knowing what you need to get done in this stage, plus how to check this stage before your project moves on, will significantly save drama down the track.
If you don’t check this stage thoroughly, or be ready with all your selections of fixtures and finishes, you can lose the opportunity to change your mind later.
Any items that need to be hung on your walls (from toilet roll holders to televisions) need to be thought about before the Frame Stage is complete.
Duayne and I talk about some great steps you can take to be sure, and what to expect from your builder in their communication and planning.
