I am delighted that you have decided to take the first and most important step in building a home, and that is to gain the necessary information and knowledge to assure your success.
I have been in the construction business since 1949 and with a few years out for the Korean war, have operated my own contracting business since 1954. I have been a subcontractor on Manhattan sky scrapers, schools, hospitals, airports and industrial plants.
I have always had a creative urge and in 1973 I designed and built my own home in the beautiful Hudson River Valley in New York. I must have done something right because people heard about the house I had built and came to me asking that I design and build their dream house for them.
Building and designing homes was love at first sight. I never felt so fulfilled and satisfied. The excitement and delight of my clients as they saw their life's dream take shape was a big extra bonus and I never looked back. Over the years I have designed and built hundreds of original homes, developed sub-divisions and condominium projects.
I was often invited to give seminars on new home construction to real estate brokers and sales people who wanted to know more about the product they were selling. The lectures were popular and I was more and more in demand. After every seminar people told me how helpful and informative my little talk was. They always asked, "Why don't you write it all down?" But with running a very active building business there just never was time.
Well a few years ago, after I had finished selling out my condominium project the housing market was pretty poor so I decided to take some time off. Suddenly I realized that I had the time to write that long delayed book. SO NOW I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU ALL THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE I HAVE GAINED BUILDING CUSTOM HOMES, IN A WAY THAT WILL ENABLE YOU TO AVOID THE MISTAKES AND PITFALLS THAT I MADE ALONG THE WAY IN LEARNING THE BUILDING BUSINESS.
This book pulls no punches. It tells you exactly what you are in for if you decide to build your dream house and what will be required of you for success.
This is your first important decision and it must be an informed one. "HOW TO PLAN, SUBCONTRACT AND BUILD YOUR DREAM HOUSE" will give you all the facts you need to know.
There are important things you need to know before buying land or a building lot. In this book I explain to you all the factors and pit-falls that the broker trying to sell you the lot is not going to tell you about, even if they know!
How do you find and hire good sub-contractors? How do you motivate them to do what you want? How can you tell if they are doing the work properly? All of these things are carefully spelled out for you in easy to understand language and with real life examples.
Just learning how to insulate the RIGHT way will save you hundreds of dollars every year in energy costs. The TABLE OF CONTENTS will show you how many topics and details are covered, from selecting the lot to planting the lawn.
