About the Author

As a young boy Bob discovered a passionate obsession with anything involving the combining of pieces needed for building something larger. At the tender age of six he saw the need to protect his family from the ravages of a potential fire, so he made everyone rope ladders as gifts for their first Christmas in their new two-story home. The passion for serving, and constructing has never waned! Today, the puzzles are much larger and more complex. Each one represents a new and different challenge. Bob never tires of his work. Families he has been privileged to serve have been the unknowing benefactors of a passion started at a very young age. As the years fly by Bob still sees and understands their needs, but he is meeting their challenges with extravagant shelters instead of rope ladders. After all, Bob is just a big kid who has been blessed to grow up doing what he loves!

Mr. Hoebeke has always been a noted and "in demand" custom home builder in Texas. I was curious to read this book because of his excellent reputation and his focus on saving time/money. I found the book to be clearly lay out the process for having a custom home built by others, or even building your home yourself. It would be a wise investment of time to read this book. This book is not meant to explain the "nuts and bolts" of everything you need to know, and I didn't want that kind of book. Instead, this gave me a high level description of the overall processes of building, and the moving pieces involved...and was written in an easy to understand manner. I also enjoyed Bob's stories and his positive tone throughout the book. This is definitely someone to learn from...enjoy this easy, yet fun read.

After hearing about this book I couldn’t wait to read it. I downloaded it to my Kindle app and read it “cover to cover” last weekend. I found the book to be very well written, entertaining, and full of sage wisdom. It's obvious that most of the author's experience is with very high end homes, however the principals will apply to any price point. My wife is reading it as well and we’re planning to use it for discussion points as we plan our home renovation.

Bob has allowed the "rest of us" to see the inner workings and complexities of building a home in a way that is easy to understand and interesting to read. Even though I'm not currently in the market to build, his insight into the decision process has given me valuable knowledge of what to look for in my own home and how to be prepared for the inevitable need for a contractor, designer, or simple upgrades in the future.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a current homeowner, is considering building a new home or will be buying an existing home in the future.
