Build a Mungo Home

Many people dream of building a new home from the ground up, but don't know where to start. At Mungo Homes, we take pride in making the building process easy and convenient!

Where Do You Want to Live?

First, choose the desired area for your new home. Do you travel a lot and need to live close to the airport or Interstates?  Do you want your children to attend specific schools? What is your preferred commute time to work? Do you want to be close to grandchildren, healthcare facilities, or recreational opportunities?

Select a neighborhood within your desired area, in your target price range, (the mortgage calculator helps you understand how much can you afford), and meet with one of our on-site agents to choose a home site and a floor plan from our extensive portfolio. 

Once the purchase agreement is executed and approved, you will have 30 days to apply for and get approved for a mortgage loan.

Selections for Your New Home

While your construction documents are being prepared, you will meet with a Mungo Homes Design Coordinator to choose your interior and exterior finishes, such as cabinets, counter tops, flooring, exterior color scheme, etc.

You will then have a Pre-Construction Meeting with your builder to review the floor plan, selections made at the Design Center, the location of the home and driveway, and have answered any additional questions you may have.

Prior to installation of the dry-wall, you will meet with your builder to see everything behind the walls and to review the locations of your electrical outlets, phone, and cable jacks.

Building Your New Home

While each home varies slightly, below are the general steps involved in building your new home:

  1. Clearing and Grading
  2. Foundation
  3. Framing
  4. Rough Electrical, Plumbing, and HVAC
  5. Insulation
  6. External Finishes
  7. Drywall
  8. Driveways and Sidewalks

Final Orientation

When your home is completed and prior to closing, you will have a Final Orientation with your builder so he can demonstrate and explain the products and features in your home, like how the tilt-out windows work, where your main water shut off is, the location of your panel box, etc. This is also the time to review the workmanship as it relates to the applicable construction standards, and review all finishes so that any imperfections can be corrected prior to closing.

Homecoming

A Homecoming Meeting will take place prior to closing in order to review your home Warranty as well as any items that needed correction from Final Orientation. The Customer Service process is also explained, and you will be shown how to maintain certain features in your home.

Closing

At closing, you will be provided with your keys and officially become a Mungo homeowner. It's that simple!
