Step-by-Step Construction

Building your home is an exciting part of the home buying process.  You can watch as your home goes through the different phases of construction all the way to completion.  To help you better understand the construction process, Keystone offers several on-site meetings with representatives from our staff.  The Pre-Construction meeting, framing meeting, and homeowner orientation, make you a part of the building process.  We take the guess work out of what is coming next and make building your home a stress-free and memorable part of the experience!

You are welcome to visit your homesite during the construction process but keep in mind that safety is our first priority. You must have a hard hat and safety glasses on during several phases of construction. We strongly recommend that you speak with your Neighborhood Manager or Associate before visiting your homesite. They can provide the necessary safety equipment and let you know when it is most appropriate to visit your home without delaying the construction process.
