New Construction Pre-Drywall Walkthrough

 Carolina Preserve

When building a home, the new construction pre-drywall walkthrough is not only necessary but interesting.  I have a clients building at Carolina Preserve Del Webb and just occompanied them to thier new construction pre-drywall walkthrough and thought I'd take you along.  

The purpose of the pre-drywall walkthrough is for the buyer to see first hand how the home is coming along, orient them to the building process, have the home inspected, and make sure the upgrades are in place.

The buyer is often overwhelmed by all the details and new information, that is where I come in, thier buyer's agent.  I have walked dozens of homes in Cary NC during this stage and know what to be aware of throught the home.  I find this stage fascinating.  It's not often one gets to see the details associated with the building process.  Home building is complex, everything from insulation to fire prevention is taken in to account. Let your Buyer's Agent assist you.

Take a walk with methrough this Carolina Preserve home and notice items such as, the plumbing set-up, wiring, red fire prevention caulk, truss configurations, HVAC, etc.....

I just finished a pre-drywall inspection a couple of weeks ago which revealed a laundry list of "items" for the builder to correct.

I love the home inspection and they serve buyers well.

I love coffee & real estate. I am out of coffee!

Inspecting construction in progress is very important. Great post! And holy moly -- I hope all those windows aren't facing west!

And so important to inspect thoroughly before dry wall goes up!  This is a great piece!  Congrats on the well deserved feature!

Hello Linda - I get to do a lot of these out at Sun City in Georgetown.  It's a great time to make sure all of the food scraps and soda bottles are thrown out.  I've seen them drywall over that stuff several times leaving it to rot (and attract pests) behind the walls.

Linda, it is amazing how much could be hidden after the drywall is installed.

It brings back memories, Linda.  In the past I have worked for a production builder as well as a custom home builder.  Great post.  Is that the clubhouse in your first picture?  Beautiful!

Very good idea to inspect the home at this point. Once the drywall is up, who knows what's behind it.
