No Experience Necessary
Contrary to many beliefs, it does not take brawn or carpentry skills to build your own home. What it does take is organizational skills and simple tools like a phone and a calendar. UBuildIt clients are saving lots of money by making decisions, contacting subs and suppliers and paying the bills. That is why we refer to your gained equity as “smart equity”, not sweat equity.

Professional Guidance
Your UBuildIt Consultant coaches you every step of the way. It begins in the planning stage with invaluable advice that allows you to complete the process of goal setting, budgeting, financing, land acquisition, plan development, permit application, and project bidding. In the construction phase coaching continues throughout the building process with numerous on-site visits, planned in-house meetings, and a customized building guide created specifically for your project. We assist you to run your job like a seasoned professional.

I cannot say enough about the office personnel regarding overall response and help in a timely manner throughout my whole building experience.” B. Knobloch
