What this is about...

diyhousebuilder.com is a free, web based system designed to give the consumer the skinny on building their own house. Yes, all the information in this web site is totally free, except for some detailed documents that you may wish to purchase. But other than that, all the resouces in here are free and will tell you exactly how to build a BETTER house that exceeds what the big builders can do for you at a substantially lower price. If you would like to build a house for $65 per square foot or MUCH less, you are at the right place. You can be your own general contractor. It is surprisingly easy for the right person to be their own owner contractor for the job. Keep in mind, though, that we are talking abour residential construction where you manage the subcontractors and do not actively build the house, unless you are skilled at a particular trade. No, you will be the general contractor of your home, and you will build your home right.

diyhousebuilder.com is a website written by an active, state licensed residential contractor from the State of Florida. I will tell you everything you need to know to plan, permit, subcontract, and build a house like we build in Florida. However, everything I tell you will also be applicable in nearly all states (and most likely will exceed your local building codes), and for basically the same price, you will have a substantially better built house that will exceed Florida Building Code for Residential Construction 2004. All for the same price. You will become your own home builder or personal residential general contractor in no time.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments. While diyhousebuilder.com is not actively soliciting construction work, if an owner-contactor in the State of Florida wishes to hire us as a contractor of record and actively participate in the entire process for a 12% fee (well worth it just in terms of the contactor's liability insurance coverage), we will try to work something out.
