Who's afraid of a little snow?

By Fifty @ Dec 5, 2016

Winter is coming, and for many that means putting dreams of a new Rainey home on hold.

But that isn’t always the case. In fact, there are a few advantages to starting your building project early in the year. The trick, of course, is to find the right balance and to work with a crew that knows what it takes.

Here are a few things to mull over:

  • You could save time and money. Since many projects aren’t slated for the winter, workers are eager to stay busy. You’ll have their undivided attention. There aren’t as many contractors clogging government offices with requests for permits, so the paperwork process could move faster.
  • If you can get the foundation in before the ground is frozen, the rest isn’t as dependent on warm weather. Try to schedule your excavation and foundation work close together to prevent cold-related setbacks.
  • Realize winter bring challenges. Although it’s easier to work through snow than rain, you will need to plow the worksite. Depending on your particular circumstances, the construction might count on thermal blankets and generator-powered heaters.
  • If construction isn’t possible, it might be the perfect time to mull over floor plans, choose cabinetry and flooring and line up financing. And don’t forget to get those permits!

The best plan is to meet with us at Rainey Homes. We can go through your dream project and make a viable decision on what’s possible, even in the dead of winter. We’re here to make your dreams come true!
