    100. Why An Architects Attention To Detail Matters - With Chris Colby of CPL Architects and Engineers and Owner Antidote One

    One of the very first steps to building a custom home is Architecture.  Hiring the right architect to design your homes is as crucial as hiring the right builder.  The architect is creating not just your home's footprint but also how the home will operate.  The more detail on a set of architectural plans, the beet.  This will help the build process run a lot smoother.  

    In this episode of The Real Build, I sat down with architect Chris Colby.  He has over 20+ years of diverse experience in design, planning and project management, and Client Development. Chris's expertise is in the field of K-12 and Upper Education Facilities and commercial buildings. He also does residential.

    Chris has worked on numerous Architecture projects throughout his career of all sizes and budgets and has managed and provided documentation of multi-phased and multi-building projects. His experience in project management, construction practices, and the Wick's Law bidding process will prove to be an exceptional addition to your project.  A true advocate for new ideas and innovation, he is passionate about K-12 design, outfitting our students with spaces for learning and exploration. He is on the leading edge in designing flexible spaces for small group instruction and individualized learning.

    Specialties: architecture, design, project management, net-zero energy buildings, eco-friendly buildings, planning, commercial & municipal property planning, and Better School Design.

    99. Bringing Respect And Dignity Back To The Trades - With Tom Reber, Owner of Contractor Fight

    99. Bringing Respect And Dignity Back To The Trades - With Tom Reber, Owner of Contractor Fight

    In this episode of The Real Build, I got the opportunity to have on Top Contractor coach Tom Reber.  Tom and I had an in-depth conversation about the things contractors should be doing to deliver a better experience to clients.  If you are someone looking to build a home, this is a must listen to episode!

    Over the past several years, Tom and his team have helped 1000’s of home improvement contractors earn the respect & dignity equal to the value that they bring to their clients. 

    He understands you and the challenges you face because you ARE contractors.

    One way he does this is through his Contractor Sales Academy training program. 

    For over five years, they have been training contractors to sell VIRTUALLY to their prospects. Nobody teaches this better than his team. they train them to connect with their prospects in ways their competitors never will, and in turn, they sell more jobs at 50% and more gross profit margins without setting foot on a prospect's property.

    98. What To Do When Building A Custom Home Part 1 - Before The Build

    98. What To Do When Building A Custom Home Part 1 - Before The Build

    In this episode of The Real Build, I wanted to discuss what a customer should do when building a custom home.  This will be a three-part series highlighting before, during, and after a build and what customers need to do.  In this episode, I cover before the build.  Some topics I cover are the following.

    Financing - Must get this lined up - takes time - Plans - contract - Get initial paperwork done.

    Lot selection - Get a builder's opinion - Finding a builder before purchasing a lot is excellent. I get customers lots all the time. I look at the dirt, seawalls, animals on the lot, set back restrictions.

    Budget - Have this in mind - Starting with the lot and then home. How much do you have for both? Plan on having a little more to spend than what you initially think

    Floorplans - Look at a variety of floorplans and pick elements you like from each. A custom builder can add all elements you want

    Look at model homes, Builder portfolios, Pinterest, Houzz, parade of homes, Sand dollar awards.

    Meet the team - Are the builder's team people you will be comfortable working with? How do they all work? What is there process of each person?

    Timeline - Need to ask your builder for a rough timeline - 18 months to build a home need to know when selections need to be made. A rough idea of stages. The idea of payment structure. Selling a house have a plan.

    Architecture/design - Is the builder involved in this process? Is there a designer? They should be engaged at the blueprint stage.

    Know what you are getting - features list - ask a lot of questions - all about details. What is behind the walls? No blind spots do as much research as possible but ask ask ask. 

    Review contract - hire a local attorney to review. Ask questions and state your concerns.

    Know the permitting process and what to expect.

    The series will be scattered a little, so the next part I will cover during the build.  That part will be launched in a few weeks
