First and foremost, the actual construction of your new home is site preparation. So what exactly is site preparation? Well, it consists of clearing away the trees from your building site, rough grading, and staking the house location for the installation of the footings and foundation.

Rough Staking the Home

If your home site requires the removal of one or more trees which you don’t want to remove, you can make some adjustments to the home’s location.

Make sure to check the new location against setbacks and easements and required distance to your septic tank drain field. Moreover, contact your building department and get their approval with your new location.


Clearing the Housing Sites involves the removal of trees, roots and other vegetation. One thing you have to make a decision on is what to do with the debris. The expensive option would be to get it hauled away. If it is a rural property, you can bury the rubbish on site or maybe even burn it. But do check with the local fire department before deciding for the latter option.

If you decide to bury the trash, make sure you choose a location that is well away from the home.


If you want to have a basement in your home, it will need to be dug. The excavating of the basement is done by using a bulldozer. The hole will be dug to the proper depth.
