What happens in the Slab or Base Stage of your new build or renovation?
The Slab or Base Stage is when the platform of your home gets built. It is a stage that also locks in lots of decisions and limits or enables future inclusions. Many homeowners aren’t aware of this in their projects.
In this episode, we talk about the next stage of construction. This is the Slab or Base Stage. This is where the platform or floor of your home gets built.
I see homeowners struggle with understanding that, at this point, many choices about the finish and functionality of your home should be already decided upon, because it feels SO early in the process.
Yet the slab going down can lock you into certain things in your finished home. And prevent you from having the option to add or change things down the track.
Duayne and I talk about these things, and also the specific activities in this stage, and what to expect from your builder in their communication and planning.
We share specific information about important decisions to make NOW so you don’t lose the opportunity to include the choices you want later. And we also highlight one of the most important drawings your documentation package needs to build or renovate your home accurately and well.
