Kit Homes Help Owner Builders and Builders

Kit Homes Make Life Easier for Owner Builders and Builders. In fact, Kit Homes can make life easier for everyone! At UBuild Homes we even have builders who are buying kit home packages from us because of the saving in time and money over the life of the project.

Help with Kit HomesSo if you are considering Owner Building you have to ask yourself if a kit home package with a proven step by step system is going to add value to your role as the Project Manager.

To understand better what these benefits are you first have to understand the amount of work, time and energy that goes into the specifying, ordering and scheduling of materials for any building project.

Developers and Builders are finding the process very cumbersome and costly so are looking at every opportunity to cost effectively outsource this function. So why don’t Owner Builders do the same? Well, the reason is that Owner Builders think they will get better pricing by shopping around. Sometimes they might, but most often they don’t. In fact most times, unless you are an Owner Builder and you work in the construction industry with access to buying power and trade accounts, you will actually pay much much more.

You see, building supply companies see Owner Builders as a prime profit opportunity. As they don’t provide repeat business they will nearly always pay full retail price for all materials. So when they add it all up the price they pay for a package of materials to lock up stage can often be as much as 20% more than what it would have cost if they had sourced it through a kit home company with a builders licence who has access to trade buying power. 

One developer has identified the value in the UBuild System and Kit Home Package as a complete new way of doing business. He simply outsources all the systems and material construction delivery schedules. UBuild Homes have 45 years experience in residential construction with the past 20 years developing excellent systems from design management construction management in the form of construction work orders, purchase orders, final hand over processes, and account tracking systems.

Many builders are great at building and not so good on the administration side of things. UBuild Homes are currently working with builders all over Australia providing packages of systems, processes and materials to suit the construction needs.

Many builders simply do not have time to do the estimating and quoting accurately and effectively and many Owner Builders simply don’t have the skill or experience. So if UBuild Homes are doing something that builders, developers and finance companies are supporting then why not consider this approach as an Owner Builder. You might be surprised by the outcome.
