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.

We strive to give our best effort to help your building experience to be the best it can possibly be!!

Why You Should Do It Yourself


Posted on: August 7th, 2015 by admin
Often times when someone is considering building their own home and maybe checking out every option including visiting with a traditional builder, the builder will tell them, “Oh goodness, why would you want to do it yourself? I can build for that same price and do all the work for you!” The reason why this is a bad idea is because there is no way that a builder is going to do all of the management of your project at a cheaper fee than you can Be Your Own Builder with Owner Builder Network. When you work with us at Owner Builder Network, you are in complete control of your project, and we have a low, one-time, flat fee. This means that there will never be any upgrade charges and there are no change order fees. You carry the checkbook and you are simply paying our low one-time flat fee plus materials you choose and labor to install the materials. You can even provide some of the labor yourself if you have those skills!
There are three reasons that people use our services: savings, control and quality. Set up a free appointment to meet with an Owner Builder Network® team member. We will help you to understand how our program can help you to $Save Thousands$ building your very own custom home. We can also help with plans and financing.

Going the extra mile for our customers


Posted on: May 18th, 2015 by admin

To make a better connection with our customers, we have taken the time to have some company pictures made so that you can put names with faces the next time you call our offices! They should be through the editing process and online soon! Some on our staff required a bit more edit work than others! 

What sets Owner Builder Network apart from our competition and what makes us unique? One of the main reasons our clients appreciate us being on their team is because we are able to help save them money by allowing them to manage their construction projects themselves. With our program, we empower our clients to be able to control the project by being in the driver’s seat – our clients control the bid process, subcontractor selection, the construction schedule and manage the budget and most importantly THE CHECKBOOK!! This control allows our clients to have a more hands on experience. Even though as an OBN Client you do have this level of control over the construction of your home, you are NOT alone in the process. We are available throughout the  whole project for consultation on any matter…we have even been know to do a little marital counseling if necessary! 

Some of the services we provide at OBN include providing you with contacts to reputable designers that will help you design with curb appeal, cost and energy efficiency in mind. We also have relationships with lenders willing to work with owner builders to provide construction financing. In addition to design work and access to construction financing, a large part of our services is providing and managing a reputable supplier and subcontractor list that is willing to work with our owner builder clients to help you accomplish your individual goals. We know that this is likely one of the biggest undertakings our clients may experience in their lifetime and we stand ready to guide, advise, and support them to the finish line!
