CONSTRUCTION PROCESS

"I'll help you avoid any rush decisions or surprises."

Now the fun begins.

We may have cut the lot, cleared some trees, and started the foundation. By then, you will have received a list of when all the decisions and selections need to be made. I'll help you avoid any rush decisions or surprises. I'll also give you a list of my suppliers, but you can shop around and feel free to do different things and shop for bargains.

I think you will enjoy meeting the sub-contractors and learning about their area of expertise. One would be David Janysek, the framer, whose brother and father have framed houses in New Braunfels for many years. Most of my subs are local, and I prefer small companies where the boss is on the job site, as I am.
