What It Takes To Be a Home Builder

As a Home Builder in State College, we thought you would have interest in learning some of the things we do in building custom homes.

A home builder guides dozens of skilled artisans and professionals, including carpenters, architects, engineers, plumbers, electricians, painters and landscapers. The builder must understand all of the home’s complex systems and know enough about each contractor’s trade in order to coordinate this skilled team to build and sell a quality product.

Some home builders develop the land on which the homes are built. They look at a piece of land to determine whether it complies with zoning regulations, local planning laws and environmental restrictions, and whether it is suitable for development. The home builder studies the lot’s topography, searching for rock outcroppings, shallow depth bedrock, shallow groundwater, natural drainage sources and dense vegetation. Landscaping options and erosion control also have to be considered. Once a builder determines that a site is suitable for construction, they must navigate the permitting process.

Building With Experience

For many folks, building a home is something they may experience only once or twice in a lifetime. We all know that you learn through practice and doing something once or twice provides a little knowledge but not a lot of experience. How then, can the typical homeowner gain confidence in building a home if they don’t do it often? The answer is to select a builder that has both longevity as a business and who has built homes for many customers. In doing so you gain the knowledge and expertise from all those years of experience. 

A lot of time and thought goes into finalizing plans for your new home and your builder should offer suggestions on things that you might not have considered. Again, using the experience from past customers and sharing worthwhile ideas with prospective customers provides remarkable value to the new customer. As an example, Fine Line Homes offers Themed Enhancement Packages for customers to consider. They may not be for everyone, but they engage the customer to think about aspects of the home that they might not have thought about before. We try to avoid the feeling of “If only I had thought about that before….” In many cases, the enhancements can easily be done during construction, but after the house is completed, they’d be hard to retrofit.

It is just another way that Fine Line Homes uses it’s 39 years of experience in assisting customers in the design, planning, and building of their new home.
