Whether using a professional contractor or doing all the work yourself, I will help you achieve your dream house avoiding the slip-ups, pitfalls and dramas that afflict many house construction projects. Learning what to lookout for will save you thousands and avoid problems which could spoil your project’s success.
I’m a construction professional, author of several successful construction management books, and a home owner. I’ve made mistakes in construction management, I’ve seen others make mistakes, but importantly I’ve had multiple successful construction projects and I’ve learned from the mistakes. I want to share these lessons and my knowledge with you.
This easy to read book is packed with tips and information to ensure your house improvement project is a success. It answers the what, where, when, how, why and who questions. It will open your eyes to possibilities for your new house, the traps and dangers you must avoid, and what you need to consider. All the stages of your home building project are discussed, from deciding what you want, where you’re going to build it, what help you need, designing your home, selecting and appointing contractors, what you need to know to do everything yourself, building processes, managing construction, and finally, completing the project. In addition, there are chapters on contractual and financial matters, as well as how to avoid common construction mistakes. To conclude, there are suggestions for simple changes you can make to improve your home.
Building your home, or undertaking a major renovation can be a daunting undertaking. There are literally hundreds, even thousands of decisions to be made, what to build, where to build, when to start, what help you need, what you will do yourself, down to the everyday decisions such as paint colours, types of taps and even door handles. Your home is one of the biggest financial investments you make and you will have to live with most decisions for many years. So it’s important to make the right decisions – decisions which are right for YOU and YOUR family. Some books advise you to do everything yourself, another book tells you not to trust contractors, while another says you should engage an architect and a contractor. But, we are all different, we have different abilities, financial means, time constraints and even varying physical capabilities. So, what’s right for one person may not be right for another. But, even projects vary, some are relatively simple, while others are complex, depending on the house design, the location, the property’s physical constraints, and even the local laws. Therefore I don’t tell you what you must do, rather I take you through the construction processes, providing you with options and their pros and cons, giving you sufficient information so you can make the best decisions for you.
Armed with this knowledge your home construction project will be a success. Good luck.
