Really glad we found the site when we did, almost make some huge mistakes; but luckily reading about other owner-builder jobs help sway our decisions in the right direction.

Hi all!

I am Marietta and have been seriously considering acting as an O-B on a home construction.  The problem is that this is not a big town with lots of choices on contractors.  Are there other O-B's out there in the Marietta area?  I would love to talk with someone who has gone through the process in this area.

Thanks for any help!

B,

Hi there.  I am an OB in Morgantown, WV.  I am not real close Marietta, but I am in Parkersburg pretty often. I have friends and family that live down there.  Actually the guy I had frame my house is in Parkersburg.  I used Sterling Building Systems, they won't sell to an OB, but I ran it through a builder here in town that was approved.  It worked out great.  WHat stage are you on your project?  If you haven't started you might consider there product, I am now a GC and an approved building with Sterling.  I would defnitely run it through my company for you, if your interested.  Good luck!  If you have any questions shoot me a message.

 

Kevin

Hi Kevin:

Right now we are still in the planning and estimating stage.  We have our plans pretty much how we want them and are trying to figure a cost estimate for the construction.  I have talked with several differnet subs on a few different items, but have not gotten too far yet.  We are still working out all of the details on what we want: types of windows, doors, lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures, etc.  The plan is once we have all of that planned out, we can send it out for real quotes from both Generals and the subs individually.  If a general comes back with a good price we may take it, but I am betting that we will be better off going with the subs and acting as our own general.  We don't plan to break ground until early next spring.

B,

Good luck with getting everything together.  If you are looking for any subs down that way let me know.  I may be able to help.  If you are interested in panelized framing, let me know, when you get plans finished and you are getting closer to breaking ground.  I could get you a quote.  The company I use quotes framing, doors, and windows.  This also includes labor for setting the house.  Good luck and let me know if you need anything.

Kevin

Kevin:

Thanks!  I will let you know when we are closer and take you up on the offer for some info on subs in the area.  I will have to look at the panelized framing some more, but will definitely consider it. 

Regards,

Brian

B,

We are in Wellston, near Jackson, OH and we are also  looking to do an OB home. We seem to be in the same place you are. We plan to break ground next spring. We are in the early planning stages. We have a floor plan pick out that we found on the web at Coolplans. We have a couple of small modifications we are making but not much. I was in the remodeling business for 15 years so I am going to act as the GC and do lots of the work myself. We too are interested in the packages for the home. If you find someone who will do the installation in the area let me know. We will do the same.

I have chatted with u-buildit and have done some initial contact with Owner Builder Alliance out of Atlanta. They have an affiliation with Cool House plans.

Any info you have would help. We will do the same.

 

J & C
