What to Expect When Building Your Own Home

There are lots of happy stories with happy people that built their own homes and survived to tell about it. Yet for every one of those, there are 10 more that later wished they had hired a good home builder. 

This is the story of Milt and Chris Ritter who decided to build a net zero home using their small savings. Their experience is consistent with countless others we have talked to that spent far more time and money then they budgeted for. And without an expert walking them through the process, they experienced immeasurably more stress learning as they went. 

Building your own home is a rewarding process that can be done hand in hand with a qualified builder. At New Era Homes, we charge a fair rate for our services and avoid unnecessary markups because we want our clients to feel good about the built-in value of their home. Our deep understanding of the home building process means that by choosing New Era Homes as your building partner, you are saving time and stress from the beginning of the project to the end.
