At Sterling Homes, we understand that building your dream home is a big decision. That’s why we’ve created a step-by-step guide to help you understand our building process. Our building process has been designed to make the experience as smooth and stress-free as possible: we provide our clients with clear communication throughout the entire process, from the initial design consultation to the final walk-through, as well as access to our team of experienced professionals who will be there to answer all your questions. 

What is the Sterling Homes Building Process?

At Sterling Homes, we have a comprehensive building process that’s designed to meet the needs of each of our clients. Our process starts with a free design consultation, during which our experienced team will work closely with you to discuss your requirements and create a unique design plan for your property. We then move into the planning stages, where our team will review your project’s scope and develop a detailed timeline and budget for your project. 


Once the planning stages are complete, we will work with you to select materials and review any construction documents that may be required. Once this is complete, the building process can begin in full.

The Benefits of Working with Sterling Homes

When you work with Sterling Homes, you can be sure that your project will be built to the highest standards. We have over 70 years of experience in the home building industry and are committed to providing you with the best possible service. We also offer access to a range of resources, including our network of local contractors who specialize in specific areas such as carpentry, plumbing, and electrical work. This ensures that your new home will be completed quickly and efficiently. 

Furthermore, we’ll provide you with regular updates throughout the entire building process, so that you’re always up to date on progress and can make any necessary changes along the way. 

Preparing For The Construction Process

Before we start any construction work, it’s important that you take the necessary steps to prepare for the process. This includes obtaining permits, arranging for utility hookups, and making sure your site is properly graded.  Additionally, you should be aware of any local zoning regulations that may affect your project. Our team can help guide you through this process so that everything is taken care of before construction begins. 


Once these steps are complete, we’ll begin to construct your new home in stages. 

The Building Process

Once the materials and construction documents have been reviewed, we’ll begin constructing your home according to the plan. Our team of experienced professionals will ensure the building process is completed accurately and on time, using only the highest quality materials. 


We understand that this is an exciting but also stressful time for our clients, so we’ll provide regular progress updates and contact you immediately if any changes are required. 

The Pre-Construction Phase

The pre-construction phase is the first step of our building process. During this stage, we’ll review your plans and begin to develop a detailed timeline for construction. We will also discuss any permits or inspections that may be required and arrange them on your behalf. 

Foundation Phase

The foundation phase is the next stage of the building process. During this phase, we’ll begin preparing the property for construction by excavating and levelling the soil. We’ll also install any necessary drainage systems before laying down a concrete slab on which to build your new home. 

Framing Phase

The framing phase is when we start to put the pieces of your home together. We’ll begin erecting the walls, roof, and floor joists according to plan before installing any necessary insulation. 

Insulation Phase

Next, we’ll begin insulating your home. We use only the highest quality materials to ensure that your home is energy-efficient and comfortable all year round. 

Rough-in Walkthrough

Once your home is at the rough-in stage, our sales team can take you on a tour of your home-in-progress. During this time, you can review the progress and make any necessary changes to ensure that everything is perfect for when your dream home is complete. 

Texture / Painting Phase

Once your home is fully insulated, we’ll move into the texture and painting phase. During this stage, we’ll apply drywall to walls and ceilings before sanding them down for a smooth finish. We’ll then paint your home according to your desired colour scheme

Cleaning Your Home

Once all the construction work is complete, we’ll go through a thorough cleaning process to prepare your home for move-in. We’ll remove any debris and dust from the construction site, ensuring that your new home is ready for you to enjoy. 

Homeowners Orientation

About 1-2 weeks before you take possession, we will provide you with an orientation to review the systems in your home and answer any questions you may have. During this time, we’ll show you how to operate any appliances that are included with your purchase, as well as other features such as security systems or HVAC systems.  

Taking Possession!

The last step in the building process is taking possession of your new home! We’ll go over all the paperwork and documentation you need to sign to officially take possession, and then you can move into your dream home. 

Troubleshooting During The Construction Process

At Sterling Homes, we understand that no two projects are the same and that you may experience unexpected issues during construction. If there is ever a problem, our team will work with you to find a solution as quickly as possible. 


We will keep you updated regularly on any changes or delays in the building process, so you can be sure that your project is being completed in a timely manner. We also have an extensive network of experienced contractors and suppliers, so if any unexpected issues arise during construction we can quickly contact the right professionals to get them resolved.
