Being able to build your own home provides you with the unique ability to be able to design it anyway you choose. The only issue with building your own home is that the land where it will be built will need to be leveled and grated so that a foundation can be created. If the land where you plan to have the house build has a lot of rocks on the property, use the following guide to learn how to get rid of them safely.
Hire a Contractor
The first thing you need to do is you need to hire a contractor to determine the layout of your home. You need to know what the size and dimension of the house will be so that the ground can be properly prepared to that exact size. Be sure to let the contractor know if you want any kick outs on the house and if you want a detached or attached garage. The contractor will have blueprints created that you can then give to a rock excavation company to have rocks that will be in the way removed.
Hire a Surveyor
You then need to hire a land surveyor to find out where the best place for the house to be located is on your property. This is important to make sure that you are going to be able to get access to water and do not try to build your house over an area that may not be as sturdy as you need it to be. You also want to be sure that you build the house on your property and do not accidentally go onto your neighbor's property.
Hire a Rock Excavation Company
Finally, you need to hire a rock excavation company to come to the property and remove any rocks that will be in the way of the home. Large rocks may need to be broken into smaller pieces to be able to be easily removed. Consider if you want to keep any of the rocks to use as landscaping features before the company hauls them away. They can place the rocks where you want them to be placed for an additional fee.
Once all of the rocks are removed from the area, the ground can be grated and leveled so that construction can begin. Taking the time to remove the rocks will ensure that your foundation can be as solid as it can possibly be.
