Editorial Reviews


This new book is written for the protection of the consumer and discusses the process of building or renovating a home from the design phase to final completion. The authors took a unique approach to writing The Streetwise HomeBuilder. While the bookshelves are filled with construction "how-to" books, it is almost impossible to find straight forward information about why and how so many problems happen during construction projects. The authors have combined their 16 years experience with a cutting sense of humor... -- From the Publisher

Format: CD-ROM
After first skimming through this book, I was impressed with the content and planning order. After reading the book in its entirety, Kathy and Mike has done an exceptional job at helping the home buyer to prepare for the tedious journey of homebuilding. For their efforts, I am sincere. However, because I purchased an electronic copy of the book, I would have liked for the content to be more organized. Utilizing MS Word 97 style features would make it easier to navigate through the document. Lastly, because the book is packed with so much information you walk away with a to-do list. Nevertheless the book has 17 pages of detail specification sheets to complete. It would have been nice to for Kathy and Mike to write a simple to-do's list, one that I could have checked off as I went along. The book suggest how to convert the specification sheet into spreadsheet format, but I guess I'm lazy and don't want to spend the time. It is apparent that Mike nor Kathy is fluent in MS Word 97, but I don't want to minimize their efforts on that fact. At least the content was solid as a rock and just what I was looking for.

Having never owned a home I had no idea how much I would need to know before starting the process. This book is essential for every potential home buyer or those wanting to build their own home. This books walks through the entire process, from finding a lender and a contractor, to how to sat within budget. I like that there is a worksheet at the end to help you plan everything out so that you don't go way over you budget. The authors even tell you what to watch out for so that you are not cheated: for instance, the contractor that skimps on quality materials thus making you newly built home inferior. All in all this is an excellent resource and a must read if you are planning on building your own home.
