William's Blog...with a smile!


If you want to build, you need to plan ahead!

If you are going to build you need to think ahead...way ahead.

Had a client today wanted to pick out a plan and have a price and start building tomorrow.


There are many things to think about.

Does the plan need to be altered.Have you picked out a lot

Permits...driveway, electric, septic, well, building...and more

Do you have a construction loan ready to go.



Having a new home is great, but you need to plan ahead  a couple months to get it all right

I know that when we built a couple of homes it was a 2 year process and part of that was also to make sure the finances were in order

Sage advice, William.  There's more to building a home than just finding a lot and putting up a home.

Good morning William. This is pretty funny but funny always comes from truth.

Those whho plan now may get started in the spring.   If you are picking a lot the builder owns, that may shorten the start time, but not if you have to buy a lot first
