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.

Making Four Walls a Home

How many times have you moved in your life? Once? Twice? Twenty times? Each time you move, even if you’re upgrading locations and you’re excited for the new place you’re going to call home, how long does it take you to get settled and make it truly feel like your home? It could take you as little as a couple of weeks or as long as a year or more to turn those four walls into a space that fully represents your style and your way of living. Not when you decide to build your home though!

When you go through the process of building a home and you’re there for every moment, from finding land to creating a blueprint and picking out tiling and light fixtures, then the moment you and your family move in you are going to feel more at home than you ever have before. Helping people create homes is the reason why Owner Builder Network does what we do. We want to help give as many people as we can that feeling of finally being home.

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.

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.
