For many DIY lovers, DIY home construction is a chance to put their skills to good use. When you act as your own general contractor, you can do as much of the work as you wish. There are many examples of owner builders who do the majority of the labor themselves, from framing all the way through to landscaping.
But if you could barely swing a hammer, and you also want to diy your home construction, how to do? Find a home that you liked and had the architect crank out an extra set of blueprints. You had better hire a Gc to help you build and get through permitting. Got help, as needed from LaborFinders plus there were friends from all trades that would just stop by to see how you are doing and end up staying half the day plus suppling lots of advice on all topics.
Even without doing any of the labor yourself, there is plenty of sweat equity to be made, because you will cut out the costs of the builder. Indeed, a lot of people don’t realize that their builder never actually does any labor himself. Instead, he typically manages the sub-contractors who do all the actual physical construction.
