Only a Phone Call Away

Posted on: February 20th, 2017 by admin


Spring is a time when things are picking up around the office. We’re hearing from new builders and looking forward to progress reports from current projects. Of the new builders, we’re pleased that about 60-70% of new leads are coming from referrals. We have no better compliment than referrals from our clients! If you know of a family interested in building a home of their own, take a look at our referral form.
Interested families can have their initial questions answered by having an informal chat at one of our home shows, contacting us over Facebook, Linkedin, or Google+, or giving us a call. We also offer free consultations to anyone interested in building their own home or working with OBN.

It is always a great experience, being part of a home building journey. We enjoy helping families build their own homes, by helping them get the network and know-how that they need. That is why we are only a phone call or office appointment away. We are always available to discuss how you can turn your dream home into reality. In addition, you can connect with other Owner Builders going through the program to share advice, stories, and get support. Take advantage of our workshops and classes to network, while learning what you need to know for a successful project. If you’re curious about how other families have completed their homes, take a look at our gallery or check out our video sharing some of our Owner Builders’ stories.

Benefits of Choosing Owner Builder Network

Posted on: February 10th, 2016 by admin

We are always ready to assist you in all aspects of your building process! Let us help you build the home that you want, the way you want. We have a talented team that will help you design your custom dream home with cost in mind. You will have a solid understanding of the cost of your home before going to final plans. This ensures that you will not design a home you cannot afford! Not only will you be able to design your home the way you want, but you also decide who you want to hire from a subcontractor standpoint on the different parts of the project. Most builders do not bid jobs out to make sure they are getting the best pricing. A recent conversation with a client proves this. He said his first framing labor quote was $12,000 more than the framer he ended up going with to frame his home. Had he not gotten three quotes and stopped at the first one, he would have spent an unnecessary 12k on his project!

Here are some other benefits of working with OBN:

  • The interest on your construction is a loan is a tax write off.
  • You are in control of everything, especially the money. You write the checks.
  • Owner Builder Network is a one-stop shop! We help you from the design process, along with budgeting with your specifications in mind, availability of construction to permanent financing, affordable and reliable subcontractors, discount suppliers, and finally to moving in.
