Kids Playing

Maybe as a kid, you were building castles in the sandbox or on the beach or using crayons to draw pictures of your future home. If you took those imaginations and carried them with you over the years, dreaming of that perfect place, then it might be time to make it a reality with the help of Owner Builder Network. It doesn’t matter if your ideas have turned into concrete plans or just sketches. We can help you create a blueprint and detailed plan to help you build your own home.

First, we sit down together for the planning phase. This is where we discuss budgeting, financing options, buying land, and designing your home. You take an active part in making your home a reality, while we prepare an easy-to-follow plan and timeline, describing the individual steps, tips, and items you have to consider throughout the project.
After the planning comes the construction! But don’t worry, you’re not on your own. Your team at OBN is there every step of the way to guide you through the process, give good advice, and help you to coordinate with your subcontractors. We check in with you regularly to make sure you’re on track, but ultimately, you’re the one in control! This is your dream home and we’re just here to make sure it happens.

House Sketch

The holiday season can be filled with lots of errands and stress, but we also like to think of it as a time to reflect on the year, while considering the future. As we sit with our families and friends, enjoying quality time together, it’s easy to start talking about our dreams and ideas. If you’ve been talking about building your own home, making sketches, and even talking finances – it’s time to talk to Owner Builder Network.

We can help you shape those initial ideas into a realistic plan. Don’t know what kind of kitchen you want? Look at some of the fantastic interior designs our OBN families have brought to life. Not sure about what kind of materials you should use on the outside of your house? Look at these different exteriors for a better idea. Are you concerned with the timeline for parts of the project? We bring over 20 years of experience in finding and coordinating the best contractors. We know how long each part of the project should take and we can make sure you have the right support. Our team works hand in hand with you throughout the entire process, guiding you when you need it.

Your ideas might look like just a pipe dream, but with the right experts working through every aspect with you – that dream can turn into happy inspirations, then an exciting journey, and eventually a finished home. Someday soon, you could be enjoying the holidays in a home you helped design and build.

Do you know when you should install flooring or appliances, but don’t know how to get your project to that phase? Don’t worry – you’re not alone! We can help you with our detailed process and continual support. We are here to fill the informational voids regarding the construction process that most have. While most of us are familiar with a kitchen remodel or bath remodel or painting the extra bedroom, managing your home construction requires everything to be done in a specific order and schedules should be planned 4-6 weeks ahead to avoid chaos and troubles.


Our team will sit down with you to discuss the best order within the different phases of construction. This ensures that installations happen in the right order for efficiency and cost savings. Ideally, you should stay 6 weeks ahead with your construction planning. This way, you can look ahead and know what is coming up when talking to subcontractors. Even if you get held up on one part, you can give them a heads up in time. Communication is key!

Your team at Owner Builder Network will work closely with you to create a construction calendar customized to match your needs and is based on our extensive experience. So, call or email us to schedule an appointment before launching into work! We will help you master the scheduling process for your construction project.
