The materials package represents one-third to one-half of your total home construction budget. You’ll want to choose your fonts wisely.

Question:  Where should I buy house building materials?

Answer  :

Homeowner builders have several options when it comes to selecting their home construction materials to build a new home. Years ago, the first thing that came to mind was a local lumberyard, but these days many think of a Home Depot or Lowe’s.

While these can be great options, I would like to point out a few other options that you should think about … not INSTEAD of these, but in conjunction with them. After all, many contractors and builders use Home Depot and Lowe’s as a major source of materials for their projects.

Where should you look for your building materials?

  • Local sawmills still exist. (Compare service and price!)
  • Panel bender companies for wood and steel walls
  • Manufacturers and distributors of ICF and SIP
  • Kit Home / Empresas de Packaged Home
  • Subcontractor Purchases: A Big Profit Margin? Maybe …

How involved do you want to be as a home builder? How much do you want to save? Can a builder get you a better deal?

Some homebuilders get help from their home building consultant to purchase their own package of materials. Therefore, it greatly limits what your contractors buy from you. This can be a real savings as they can often avoid some substantial profit margins. This can take time. You need to make sure the savings are there before undertaking this task.

Finally, if you are a DIY proprietary builder, I would recommend that you look into the pack / kit houses. They can really streamline your materials purchasing job, save construction time, and even improve the quality of your home building project.

Insist on quality materials. It’s a better lifetime value decision.
