Yes you can build your own home in Asheville North Carolina, get exactly what you want, and even save lots of money in the process. Our team has worked with hundreds of families to help them realize their dream of home ownership. There are plenty of folks in the Asheville area who have enough time to help manage the project and even do some of the work themselves. Maybe you want to do the painting, or maybe you can build the decks with some help from family and friends; and save thousands of dollars in the process. Sweat equity equates to actual money invested into your new home. Also, not everyone has the funds to pay a Home Builder or General Contractor the overhead price above the actual building costs associated with building a new home. This is where we come in as your consultants and help you build a brand new custom home for way less money.

Here is how to build your own home in Asheville North Carolina:

  1. You hire us as your consultants and we get the project started.
  2. We secure the piece of property that you are going to build your new home on.
  3. We start the estimating process and come up with a final cost for the home. This is where you can work alongside us with your family and friends to get a discounted price on anything from electrical, to plumbing, windows and doors, roofing and more!
  4. We secure financing. If you are paying cash, great, no financing needed.
  5. We start the building project by getting the foundation installed, whether it is a slab, crawlspace, or basement.
  6. Our team then comes in and gets the main structure of the home built. This is when the walls, roof, roofing, windows, doors, and decks go up. This takes less than a month for an average 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1200-1500 square foot home. This is also called the dry-in phase and it is probably the most important part of the project as we are making sure the interior of your home is closed up and protected from natural elements such as rain, snow, sun, etc.
  7. From there, we are then ready for the electricians, plumbers, and heating and air contractors. After their phase is complete (usually a 2 week window) the insulation and drywall is installed on the inside, while the exterior siding is installed on the outside.
  8. After that, it is pretty much all cosmetic from there – flooring, cabinets, painting, finish carpentry, and the trades (electrical, plumbing, heating and air) trimming their work out.
