Q: Can I really build a new home? I can't even hang a picture straight on a wall.

A: Absolutely! Most Owner Builder Network customers have never built a home before. You will have a "Team of Experts" helping you from start to finish. All that you will need to build is the capability to schedule, make calls, pay bills, and visit the job site possibly once a week to pay sub-contractors.
