Why Do People Build Their Own Home?
People build there own home for a variety of reasons. Some do it so they can better control the quality of their home. Others do it to save money. Many like the “Sweat Equity” value they create as a result of their work. Some customers have moved in with over $200,000.00 worth of equity. Most do it because they do not believe they should pay someone to do work that they can easily do themselves.
Landmark serves as an architect, engineer and panelizer all in one to make your building experience fast, cost effective and under your control. We combine these three disciplines so you can better manage your project. We are a “one stop shop.”
Building your own home can be one of the most rewarding projects you undertake. You have the opportunity to not only design the home, but stay actively involved in the construction process. Customers have tremendous sense of gratification and accomplishment after their home is completed.
You can make sure that you are getting the best home you can afford, with features that you like, at a reasonable cost. Owner involved building can also give you the opportunity to stop renting and get into your own new home. You can build your dream home in a neighborhood which you would like to live, instead of settling for an existing home which may need extensive repairs.
What Would I Do As An Owner Builder?
Being an owner involved home builder is an exciting and challenging project! You get involved with home design, finding and selecting land, budgeting and financing, obtaining permits, coordinating and scheduling, all the way through home completion. You can even do the work yourself or have friends help you save money. Some customers actually get involved with every step of the building process while others simply coordinate the project with subcontractors.
To get the most out of the building process, and to save money, you work off your strengths and get other people to help you in areas where they are better. For example, if you know how to wire your home you should do it. If you are not able to roof your home, have someone else do it.
