Build Timelines – Exploring the Kimberley Difference

One of the initial inquiries our clients often pose when embarking on a Kimberley homebuilding journey is, “When can I move into my new home?” We share your enthusiasm, and we’re committed to ensuring that the waiting game, while challenging, is ultimately rewarding. As you research builders, you’ll notice variations in build timelines. What factors contribute to this, and what implications does it hold for your new home?

At Kimberley Homes, our typical build timeline ranges from 11 to 14 months from the moment your purchase agreement is signed to the day you receive your keys.

There are several distinctive factors in the Kimberley homebuilding experience that prioritize the quality of your home over the speed of the build timeline:


1. Excavation, Footing, Foundation, and Backfill

Creating a solid foundation is paramount to the structural integrity and longevity of your home. Kimberley takes pride in executing meticulous steps during this critical construction phase:

· Foundations are poured only on thawed ground, ensuring an optimal environment for curing.

· Pressure-treated lumber is utilized to prevent rotting over time, prioritizing durability.

· Proper timing of backfilling allows the foundation concrete to cure effectively.

· We conduct foundation inspections promptly, ensuring adherence to quality standards.

· In colder months, we employ heating or tarping to facilitate optimal curing.


2. Framing


Our custom homes are framed on-site, ensuring meticulous attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. We collaborate with skilled framers we trust, ensuring your home is built to the highest standards. While prefabricated framing may expedite the process, we prioritize durability and quality over speed.


3. Scheduling Subtrades


Throughout the build, Kimberley orchestrates a sequential schedule for each trade, allowing them ample time and space to complete their work to the highest standards. This meticulous approach ensures

quality control at every step. We avoid stacking multiple trades simultaneously, as it can hinder efficiency and compromise quality.


At Kimberley Homes, we understand the significance of time in the homebuilding process. However, we firmly believe that quality should never be sacrificed for expedience. Our commitment to building high-quality homes ensures that your investment is safeguarded.


While construction timelines may vary due to a multitude of factors, rest assured that Kimberley’s dedication to quality remains unwavering. If you’re ready to embark on your Kimberley homebuilding journey or explore our move-in ready homes, our New Home Concierge is here to assist you.
