New Home Construction

They say home is where the heart is, but, sometimes, an already built, already lived-in home may not deliver everything your heart desires. When that happens to be the case, finding local builders to construct a new home tends to be the most viable option. At Oasis Builders in Los Angeles, new homes are one of our many specialties, so we’re the local builders you can trust to help the home of your heart come to life.

Advantages of building a new house

The advantages of building over buying are significant. If you’re still on the fence, consider these benefits.

* Ability to Customize the Floor Plan

When you order a new construction that takes shape from the ground up, you have much more opportunity to customize it. Want that bonus room? It’s yours. Prefer green building materials? That’s possible, too. You’ll work closely with your architect and contractors during a new construction to design the perfect home that fits your family’s needs.

* No Bidding Wars

You’ll have a concrete plan already in place when building a new house. Therefore, you won’t have the worry of being outbid. There’s no competition, and you’ll already have your budget, more or less. As a result, you’ll know ahead of time what it’s all going to cost.

* Use of New, Energy-Efficient Materials and Techniques
Wars
New homes must be built to strict codes, and these codes take things like energy efficiency very seriously. Your new construction will cost less to heat and cool than an older home might. Additionally, everything will be new, from your furnace to your plumbing, meaning you’ll have fewer upkeep costs for at least the first several years.

Challenges of building a new house

Estimating Garage Conversion Cost
Personalized Service
More Difficulty Getting a Loan

Because there’s no existing home to use as collateral, it may be more difficult to secure a loan. And if you do find a good option, fees and interest charges may be higher. A reputable loan officer can help you find that perfect lender.

Clear Communication
Fluctuating Costs

While you’ll have a set budget, home construction often encounters unforeseen situations. For instance, it may cost more to drill your well than you budgeted for if you’re building on solid rock. Equipment breaks down occasionally, too, which may cause costly delays. Use licensed and experienced professionals to keep unexpected costs low.

Streamlined Process
Longer Time Frame From Start to Finish

It takes longer to plan, design, and build a home than it does to close on an existing construction. Therefore, if you have a strict goal in mind, such as being in a new home by Christmas, it may be better to look for a home that’s already on the market. Start planning at least a year in advance if you want to build from the ground up.

Our New Home Construction Process

What are the steps to building a new house in Los Angeles? Here is a closer look at our process when you come to Oasis Builders to make your new construction ideas a reality. 

Plans, Permits
& Designs
3D Design & Rendering

Our home designer works with you to pick the floor plan and home style that best suits you and your lifestyle. From here, we will draft the initial designs and blueprints, and then obtain the necessary permits to get started with the project. 

Demolition & Excavation
Demolition

Site demolition and excavation involve removing any element in the way of the planned structure, including existing vegetation and structures. During excavation, the ground will be properly graded in preparation for the new materials. 

Foundation & Framing

The foundation goes in place as the first element of the new construction. This support system for the new structure may be a solid slab or blocked, depending on the situation. Once the foundation is complete, we begin the framing process, which includes building interior walls, exterior walls, and roof trusses, and enclosing the framing with sheeting. 

Roofing
Roofing

With the primary frame of the home done, our first objective is to get a roof in place to protect everything. So, at this point in the build, we install the chosen roofing materials, as well as other elements of rooftop protection, such as vents and gutter systems.

Windows & Doors
Windows and Doors

Windows and doors are often installed at this point in the new construction process. From entry and exit doors to decorative and functional windows, these pieces will be installed before we move on to the rest of the finish work. 

Plumbing, Electrical
& Mechanical
Plumbing & Electrical

Rough plumbing, electrical, and mechanical elements are installed at this point. We will install wiring in the walls and floors, route plumbing and septic lines to the proper rooms, and handle all other mechanical aspects of the build. 

Insulation
Insulation

Insulation goes into the outer and some interior walls at this point. Depending on your preferences, we may use standard rolled insulation, blow-in insulation, or even spray foam insulation to make the home as efficient as possible. 

Drywall & Interior Paint
Drywall

After insulation, we get to work with the wall finishing inside the house. Drywall is hung on the walls and ceilings throughout the structure to enclose each room, the walls are then primed, and interior painting is finished. 

Stucco & Exterior Paint
Stucco & Exterior Paint

Here, we move on to finishing the exterior of the home. Stucco or other siding materials are installed, exterior trim work is primed and painted, and other aspects of the exterior of the house are completed. 

Cement & Tile
Cement and Tile

Cement and tile work is tackled at this point in the project. From hardscaping outside like the driveway and walkways to tile installation indoors, we wrap up each aspect of this area before moving on to other finishing processes. 

Flooring
Flooring

With much of the exterior finished and the floorplan, walls, and mechanical elements in place, we get started on the flooring. From wood flooring and laminate to carpet and vinyl, our team brings each room to life with the flooring you have chosen. 

Features & Fixtures
Connecting Appliances and Fixtures

Cabinetry for the kitchen, countertops, appliances, sinks, and other fixtures and features are the finishing touches to the new structure. We add the final elements, room by room, until each area is complete.

Client Testimonials

John Teschner

Kitchen Remodeling, Studio City

What was important for me about Neev that made me hire him was that when I asked him serious questions, he had the answers. I felt like I could trust him to do what he said and if he did what he said, I knew I’d be happy. The communication was great, I spoke with Neev every day, if not once, maybe two-three times. The quality of the job came out just as I expected, really good. The project came in before the deadline and right on budget. What more can you ask for these days?
Alexis Kavazanijan

General Remodeling, Long Beach

I found Oasis Builders on yelp, and they had 5-star reviews and everyone was over the moon about working with Neev. I decided to hire Neev and Oasis Builders because when I spoke with him, he was really honest and transparent about the process. As a first-time homeowner, going through construction can be nerve-wrecking, so I was concerned that working with a wrong person won’t be the right fit for us. Neev quelled any nerves that I may have had.

/ Common FAQs When Build New Homes

YOU ASK WE ANSWER

Construction Costs
What are the stages of building a new house?

Building a house is a huge undertaking with a lot of steps involved for the local builders you choose. However, the general stages of building a house can be broken down into a few general steps:

  • Preparation of the construction site, such as leveling and grading or excavation
  • Local builders install the foundation, which may or may not include a basement
  • Implementing ground utilities, such as septic lines and water lines
  • Building the frame of the home, including adding roof trusses
  • Completing the basic plumbing, electrical, and HVAC implementations
  • Installing insulation, interior drywall, electrical fixtures
  • Finishing the exterior with roofing, siding, etcetera
  • Finishing interior and exterior trim, driveways, and walkwaysA well-built new home can retain its value just like any other home. As always, real estate values can ebb and flow depending on supply and demand, but the general value of a home often rises over time.
How long does it take to build new homes?

The construction schedule for building a house can vary depending on several factors, including location, the size of the home, and even the configuration and which local builders you choose. The best local builders can give you a reliable timeline before the project begins.

How can you keep new home construction costs low?

New home construction costs are based on size, materials used in the build, and the time involved in construction. Working with local builders, being mindful of material choices, and collaborating with a cost-conscious designer are all good ways to save money on new homes.

Does building a new house cost more than buying a new one?

The costs can actually be quite comparable, and in some cases, building new homes can be cheaper. You have to consider when buying a home, part of the cost is on assumed home value based on location. When building a home, you are paying directly for the materials and labor involved only.

Do new homes lose value?

A well-built new home can retain its value just like any other home. As always, real estate values can ebb and flow depending on supply and demand, but the general value of a home often rises over time.
