How Long Does it Take to Build a House?

When someone is thinking of having their house built, one of the most common questions that arise is “How long will it take to build my house?” This is not surprising: The process of building a house is always exciting, and sometimes even cruel. When a person sees the finished designs, they sometimes would like to fast-forward into the future. Unfortunately, this is not possible… and they are left to waiting.

But how long to they have to wait? The truth is that the answer depends on many, many factors. Generally speaking, people can expect a house to be built from the ground up within a time frame of 3 to 4 months, although it is good to note that it can take longer during the winter months (especially in Calgary). Bigger homes, however, can take as long as 9 months to be built.

It’s also good to remember that a custom home tends to take longer to build than a semi-custom home. As we already discussed in one of our earlier articles, a custom home is a home that is build around the future owner’s personality. It allows the latter to personalize their house completely without having to worry about pre-defined features.  A semi-custom home, on the other hand, tends to be more affordable but borrows many pre-determined features that can’t be changed.

Of course, the building time relies heavily on the expertise of the builders as well. With Riverview Custom Homes, you don’t have to worry about such a thing. We offer services that are both affordable and reliable. For more information, click here:
