The Owner-Builder Program Explained in 7 Minutes:

Best Home Builders in Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs and…

If you’re in Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, or Pueblo, there’s a HomeWrights office near you! The HomeWrights Owner-Builder Program consists of on-site and digital assistance with all phases of planning and preparation for a client’s new custom home. Each Owner-Builder is assigned a dedicated Project Manager to guide and coach the homeowner to a completed home. Meet the team.

HomeWrights has helped more than 400 homeowners complete their custom homes since 2002. These homes would be described as modest to legacy homes, and range in price from $500,000 to $4,500,000. Anyone can act as their own general contractor, but now, you don’t have to do it alone! Don’t overpay for a luxury home. Yes, you can act as your own builder even on a luxury home!

How to Be Your Own General Contractor 

As an Owner-Builder you’ll have access to the proprietary HomeWrightsToolbox. This toolbox consists of documentation, filing systems, contractor and supplier search tools, scheduling tools and day-to-day management tools to keep each Owner-Builder client on track and on budget during their project.

One of the biggest challenges any new home builder face is finding qualified, dependable subcontractors. Without the HomeWrights Toolbox, finding subcontractors on a Google search is like rolling the dice. You never know what you’re going to get. HomeWrights Custom Homes has solved that problem.

Denver Mom Becomes Custom Home Builder With No Experience

Watch HomeWrights Custom Homes client, Chelsea Thomas in the video above to understand how the Owner-Builder Program saves you a fortune and give you the luxury custom home you want.

This Denver mom put in about 20 hours a week supervising the building of her own new custom home alongside a second home on the property (recently subdivided). She would have paid a contractor $100,000 to $200,000 MORE to build what she wanted so instead, she hired the consultants at HomeWrights Custom Homes to guide her and coach her as her own general contractor.

She’ll live in the new home and rent out the second house. It’s called a tandem property. She is maximizing the use of her land, reducing her monthly mortgage and growing her equity fast!
