  • You decide who to hire, your subs or ours and you can even do some of the work yourself
  • You have peace of mind that quality control is in place when you follow our inspection recommendations

Financing Your Dream Home

Posted on: September 25th, 2017 by admin


When it comes to building a new home financing is always a big consideration. OBN has established relationships with financing
resources that will allow you to make all the financial decisions during the construction of your home. These banks are familiar
with how
we do things here at OBN which makes it easy for our clients to work through the approvals process and secure a construction

Do you have land already, or know where you would like to build but don’t know how to get started? Taking that first step is
always intimidating. If you need to purchase land it can be absorbed into your construction loan, existing land pay offs can
also be rolled into your
construction loan. Design fees, and OBN’s fee can also be included in the construction loan.

All loans are subject to credit, debt to income ratios, and appraisal.

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.
