We love our new custom home! We shopped the house market for nearly a year before
deciding to try building ourselves. Nothing we saw during that time was close enough
to our 'dream house' requirements. So we sat down with (much) paper & pen and
wrote down all the features we wanted plus the features we loved in the many houses
we looked at then tried to combine our favorites into one plan...

We completed and closed on our house in October 2010. Just wanted to say how much
we appreciated the help of Paul Artmann, Brad, Sheila, and Gayle. We built in Fayette
County on 9 acres and they were usually a phone call away with answers to my questions.
My husband was preparing to retire and I was pretty much on my own in building our
house, lived in a RV on our property. Thanks to all of you, I...

a pool with extra landscaping, and a boat dock with lift and cover, and still saved
about $140,000, if not more. Best of all, it was our own custom design. We love
the new home we built. I have...

My wife and I built our dream home in 2006, moving into it New Years weekend, 2007.
Our ideas were roughly sketched on an 8.5x11 sheet of graph paper when we first
meet with our OBN representative. While our plans were being conceptualized by drafting
and designers, the 14 evening “building classes” offered by OBN to members provided
the foundation for the construction of a...
