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.

From Inspiration to the Finished Project

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.

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.
