people think building their own home involves vast knowledge of
all aspects of the home building process. The impression of most
people is they don’t really know enough to build their own
home. Let’s face it, most of us know a little about the
process. Some of us may know a lot about one aspect or the other
involved in building a home. You may know how to paint or do carpentry
work or lay tile, but you probably don’t know everything
about home building.
is so different about building a home than the rest of major tasks that
we take on in our everyday lives? Right now I am typing on my laptop over
a wireless connection that is networked to the Internet. Do I know how
all this works? Nope, I just knew how to put it all together and eureka,
I can do it! Well we all know it is not that simple sometimes with computers,
but my point is you don’t need to know everything about something
to do it.
this age of the Internet with it’s endless sources of information
and connection to other people that have the knowledge you need, almost
anything is possible. So why is building your own home any different?
It isn’t really, let me tell you why. First a little background
about the building process.
of us buy a home that is built by a builder, or general contractor. The
General Contractors hire Sub-Contractors to do the work, or essentially
build the homes. The Subs put up the framing, roofing, siding, flooring
etc… Normally the General contractors employ building supervisors
to watch over the building process. They are the managers that have day-to-day
contact with the subs. This process is not really complicated.
what is so mysterious about building your own home? What do the builders
have access to that you don’t? Nothing, this is the fact that not
to many people know. I built my own home. Am I some kind of rocket scientist,
not hardly? The fact is you can save thousands of dollars and have the
home of your dreams. We saved 40% and have a beautiful home that is exactly
what we wanted.
have access to the Building Contractors, House Plans, land, materials
and financing. You just don’t know it! You see the General Contractors
just put it all together and present it to the masses, at a hefty markup
your own home is very similar to all the other important tasks that you
have mastered in your life. You study the information follow a process
and commit to the task. Is it easy no, is it worth it, yes.
