Money Saving Tips For Building Your House


Building Materials

You’ll face dozens of choices regarding material that give you the opportunity to save money.

Here are a few of the major items that present the largest potential for savings.  You should compare prices with all material suppliers.

This is an estimated list of all materials you’ll need to build your house, with the cost of each item.

All you need to do is give them a set of your house plans along with a specification sheet and they will do the rest.

Get at least two take-offs and compare prices.
