Job Site Requirements








  Most job sites can be easily accessible by larger trucks if graded properly. A site that can be easily driven to can reduce your construction cost significantly. If possible, sites should have driveways at the main level. Entering the home at the main level is much more desirable than climbing up steps from the basement level, and adds to the resale value. Homes with minimal parking can be slow sellers. Many home buyers own motor homes, boats, and travel trailers. Homes with circle drives are usually fast sellers. Driveways and parking areas need to be graveled and be a minimum of 10' wide. Culverts should be at least 30' long. You will need to  rent a boom truck or crane with operator locally. The crane will need to be a minimum of 17 ton capacity with boom length no less than 70 feet and have the ability to lift 1800 pounds at 70 feet radius. The crane will need at least a 20'x28' LEVEL area not over 20' from foundation (usually in driveway) of home and CLEAR OF TREES, and POWER LINES. You will need to verify with crane operator that your site is accessible for crane BEFORE ORDERING HOME. The crew will need 1 level spot to offload trucks at least 10'x35' close to the crane. Roads and driveways should be all weather useable by 2 wheel drive vehicles. Curves should be as gentle as possible. Treated top plates and drop beam will need to be installed on foundation prior to delivery. If your job site is muddy.You will need 15 square bales of hay on site at delivery. The crew can spread it on the ground to keep the panels clean before erection. One portable toilet needs to be on site. If possible backfilling should be done before delivery.
