The Ryan Home

Posted on: June 12th, 2018 by admin

Ryan Home Exterior

Every once in a while it’s not uncommon for some of our clients to ask “Can I do some of the work myself?” and Curtiss and Sarah Ryan were one such client. Our OBN Consultant’s response to them was “Absolutely! You can do as much of the work as you want to do on your project! After all, you only have yourself to please.” So the two went to work as they utilized family favors and friends with specific skills and with Curtiss and Sarah filling in the gaps.

Curtiss did a majority of the work himself, he was very keen on building “sweat” equity into his project. The two even working in their Texan pride onto their propane tank outside. Curtiss and Sarah did a great job – WE ARE VERY PROUD OF THEM! They are very pleased with how it all turned out and with the amazing equity they had upon completion of the project. We at Owner Builder Network allow our clients to have the flexibility of doing some work themselves.

We have some amazing clients, and we are always happy to help them reach their goals. OBN is always keen to help you build your house with many options to how it gets done.

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.
