I like that you pointed out that every piece of equipment must be checked prior to using them to ensure that they are not damaged and they are safe to use. I will make sure to relay this information to the custom home builders that I will find near us now that I have enough money to finally have my own home built this year. If they can assure me that they will follow and they value safety, I will definitely hire their services.

Thanks for pointing out that the pieces of equipment should be checked before using them to find any damages if there are. I hope that I find builders that are following that kind of protocol to give me peace of mind that the house will be built safely. This has been my dream ever since I was a teen, so I am really looking forward for the project being a success.

I like what you said about wearing a hard hat. That makes sense considering you don't want stuff to fall on it. I'll have to hire a professional crew to tear down my kitchen.

I'm glad that you said that using proper equipment and materials is important when building a home to prevent mistakes and for better production. I have a cousin who is intending to build his own custom home and has asked if I have any suggestions on the best way to design his home layout from the ground up. Thank you for teaching me how consulting a reputable residential general contractor can answer all of his questions and determine the best plan for his home.

It captivated me the most when you wrote that you should not leave harmful tools in a place where children could reach. We are having a home renovation and it's a good reminder for me. I will make sure to inform the home builders I will be hiring about it as well so they can be extra careful.

It's good to know that you should never demolish load-bearing walls. My daughter is helping me renovate my kitchen, and we're trying to come up with a floor plan right now. We'll definitely need help from a demolition contractor before we start any of the work though.

Thank you for reminding us never to expose live electrical cables. My father has made the decision to build a house and is considering who to hire to oversee the building. I would recommend that he hire a skilled home builder who will not only build the house but also ensure that the work area is clean, the electrical wires are covered, and everything is secure.

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.
