Building your dream home

Your dream home. It will be beautiful. It will have every bell and whistle that you can think of. Your family will love living in it. Your friends will be envious. It will cost some good money, but it will be worth it when it is finished. To save some money, you will act as the general contractor. You can do it. People do it all of the time. And you will save money.

Building a home is like running a business. Anyone can make a stab at it, but not everyone can do it well. Talk to anyone that has had a home built and they will tell you that it took more work and planning than they thought it would.

Acting as a GC will save you money. Quite a bit in most cases. But, if you want your dream home built on budget and on schedule, you may want to consider hiring a professional to help you. That is where I come in. With over 25 years of homebuilding experience, a degree in Construction Management, and countless hours helping hombuilders to be, I can be your representative.

You can hire me to talk to your subs. Have me check their licenses, insurance and references. Let me talk specifics with them.  Let me and my team check their work in progress. Let me and my team make sure that you are getting what you pay for.

My rates are reasonable. Usually I can save you more than I cost. You will know my price going and it will not change.

Build your dream home. Save thousands acting as your own general contractor. Use me to get you there.

My 100th blog

I just realized that I wrote my 100th blog on AR this morning. Kind of cool. When I joined in March, i thought that I would give this thing a try, and see how it went. Kind of a test run of sorts. I have gotten leads and customers from my blogs on… more

Anyone who has ever owned a real busines has done it before. After paying all of the bills and the employees, there is simply no money left. The owner gets zip. Been there done that. Any parent knows the feeling. Buy diapers, formula, school… more
The unthinkable

I had to do the unthinkable yesterday. Heading home from meeting with a client. I had been putting it off for a few days. I just wasn't ready to make the commitment. Well, I had no choice. Darn. I pulled into my local gas station. Parked next… more
Twin Falls Airshow

Laying on my grandmas lawn and watching the jets fly over. My grandma lived right off the end of an Air Force Base runway, and on some days during the Vietnam War, fighter jets would fly over every couple of minutes. My friends and I would spend… more
What have we done?

When my grandfather was 13 years old, he was asked by his parents to drop out of school. He had just graduated 8th grade, and it was time. His father told him it was time to start earning a living and make something out of himself. My grandfather… more
It was there

A record fell this week. Actually it was crushed. A guy named Tom (he does not want any publicity so no last name). Tom and I grew up together. Tom was a good athlete. A very good one who excelled at track in college. Like the rest of us, he… more
A simple test

Here is a little test, written by Dennis Prager, well known author and pundit. Take it and see how many you get. Hopefully everyone gets a zero, but I somehow doubt it. Add a few questions if you like. Do you believe the following? &… more
Down our throats

Now I am convinced. I am sure of it. Liberals actually hope that the price of gas stays high. $4 per gallon is probably not high enough for them, but it is a start. My feelings or fact? It is pretty obvious. The Dems in Congress just keep… more
Mass transit will not help

Here in southern Idaho there is a plethora of SUV's and trucks. Most are full size. Most probably average around 15 mpg. Things are pretty spread out in our state as we still resemble a rural setting with some suburbs thrown in here and… more
