What You Should Know About SFH Construction
The following factors are things that every prospective home builder should know before beginning work on their new home projects.
It’s essential that you know the property that you want to place a new home on is zoned for SFH structures.
Permitting and Inspection
Permitting and inspections for SFHs can be time-consuming and are often out of the hands of the contractors. Check with your contractor to determine the time allotment for these requirements.
Budgeting for Materials
The cost of building materials is often driven by the market and local economic forces. You should discuss the risk of budget overruns with your contractor.
Codes and Regulations
It’s important to know the legal options that are available to you when you’re building a new home. For example, in Florida, hurricane regulations dictate the types of doors and windows that a home can have.
Financing new construction in South Florida is different than purchasing an existing property. Because the bank can’t inspect new construction homes, they may require additional assurances to finance projects.

Frequently Asked Questions About New Home Builds
The following questions are frequently asked by individuals and investors who are planning on building one house or many. Contact us to ask specific questions about your projects.
How long should it take to build an SFH?
Generally, a new home takes six to nine months from its inception to build. Factors that can affect the timetable include the following:
- Material shortages due to construction booms and supply chain interruptions
- Local government inspecting and approving various stages of the process
- Seasonal inclement weather or hurricanes
- Revisions requested by the buyer
- Demolition of the existing property on the job site
Construction projects are complicated, multi-tiered processes, which means that different factors can speed up or delay a project.
What are the advantages of building a home from scratch?
For one, you can custom-build your home to your exact specifications with respect to the regulations and ordinances that affect your build. If you own vacant land, building a home or group of homes on it could substantially increase the value.
What are the disadvantages of building a new home?
Custom building a home takes time. If you need a place to live immediately or you don’t have the patience for the development process, you should consider buying an existing property.
What type of regulations affects new home builds in South Florida?
Florida has a history of homes being buffeted by hurricanes. Consequently, the regulations affecting new house construction are rigorous. Windows and doors must be hurricane rated. Roofs also have to withstand high winds. You can ask your Admer representative to discuss how Florida’s hurricane regulations can affect your new home build.
