Getting ready to build a new home on your raw land? In addition to hiring a reliable contractor to take care of the legwork for you, there are a few services you can invest in for optimized convenience and minimized stress. Consider using one or more of the following service options while your home is being built:
One of the most important services you can invest in while your home is being built by a contractor is as-built surveys. These surveys are sometimes required by counties or states depending on the location of the build, but even if you aren't legally required to provide your county building inspectors with as-built surveys, they'll come in handy for your own oversight purposes. The idea of an as-built land survey is to ensure that any updates and changes made to your raw land are being done as planned and are in compliance with your official building plans overall. It's a good idea to have an as-built land survey completed after each stage of the building process is completed and before the next stage begins.

A Dumpster Rental
Another service to consider investing in for our home building project is a dumpster rental. By having a dumpster dropped off at your property before construction begins, you will ensure that your contractor and their crew can easily clean up as they go so the site doesn't end up being cluttered and dangerous as work commences. You can have the company that rents the dumpster pick it up when it's full and replace it with an empty one anytime it's necessary until construction is complete. After your home is built, you can have the dumpster picked up for good without having to worry about managing any of the scrap materials or debris that accumulated throughout the building process.
You should also think about how your property will be protected when nobody is there working. Consider renting a construction fence to erect around the property so passersby can't get too close to the project site and end up injured. In addition, you can rent some security cameras and install the along the fence to keep an eye on things. It is also a good idea to rent a portable storage unit that can be stocked with your building materials and locked overnight.
Investing in the services outlined here is sure to help increase convenience and lower stress levels while your new home is being built.
