Care and Caution for Summer Months

Posted on: August 3rd, 2017 by admin

Summer months are some of the most ideal times to get to your home improvement projects. Not only are the days longer, but the added time that the sun is out makes it perfect to tackle those projects you’ve been putting off. But, do keep in mind that high-risk is also a part of summer.

Be very mindful of the temperature, as well as being in the sun for long periods of time. Also, keep in mind that different parts of your house can either be cooler or hotter than normal outside temps. If you’re attempting any work within your attic, make sure you try to get to it during the morning times, as heat has not had the chance to build & collect up there. If you do have to work in your attic at peak temperature hours, minimize your times up there to only a few minutes at a time, drink plenty of water, and, if possible, maximize air flow.

Posted on: June 6th, 2017 by admin

Owner Builder Network is there to help our families with all parts of their building projects – from beginning to end. But even before you pick up the phone to call us, you can start preparing for your construction project.

  • put together a general idea of your WISH LIST
  • look at your finances to determine a budget
  • be aware of any major time constraints for your project

Not sure on what the costs will be and how to finance everything? Come in for a one-on-one free consultation to discuss financial planning for the construction, land pay-off, materials, and contractors. If you’re not sure about how to put your ideas into concrete plans, you can talk to our designers, or get in touch with references. We’ve also shared some of our finished projects in a gallery for you to view.
