I am an owner builder. As an owner builder your job is to organize a new home build, you do not need any construction knowledge or experience to get it done. I actually I had no idea what the first step to building a house was before I built my first home. I have no construction background, I don't own many tools and would not consider myself "handy" in a mechanical way. But I did jump headfirst into building a new home without knowing much about how to build a house. My first experience was a great learning experience and essentially that is the first step to building a house... learning how to do it.
The first house I built turned out great and yes this was before I knew how to build a house. The problem though was the cost to build the house. You see when you jump into building a house without knowing what you're doing you trade money for lack of knowledge. I ended up spending tens of thousands more than I should have simply because I did not know all the steps to building a house. As I went along building that first home I learned a lot, then I decided why not try again. At this point I knew how to build a house and all the steps to building a house so things went much smoother... so I did it again and again. Each time I built a new home I learned how to decrease the cost to build a house and increase the profit on each home I sold.
I've spent many years building and then selling homes. I know how to do it efficiently and make a huge profit each time. Being an owner builder has great rewards, not only financially but it's also amazing to see your project come together. I've told many people about my success as an owner builder and they always want to know more... how do you build a house, what design should I choose, what are the steps to building a house, what does it cost to build a house and how much can I save by being an owner builder? I decided to put all the information together and wrote THE BLUEPRINT - a step by step guide to building a house. I also included blueprints, my personal home design that I now build exclusively. With THE BLUEPRINT you've got step one all figured out.
