How to build your house error-free, within budget and without being taken advantage of by anyone...
...even if you have zero previous experience
You research your cellphone. You research your TV. You research your refrigerator. You research every big purchase before you part with your hard-earned cash. But how much research do you plan to invest in the single biggest expense of your lifetime – your home – before it gets built?
Blew my expectations out of the water! Thorough doesn’t even begin to describe this kit, it has everything you want, as well as everything you never knew you needed. I’m beyond impressed!
A rich compilation of resources that can help you not only visualize your ideal home both inside and out, but take tangible steps toward making it a reality.
This is an absolute must-have if you ever plan to build your own home. The book and resources answered so many of my questions, and the plans included are just fabulous!
Which of these mistakes will you make?
Embarking on building a custom home can be an expensive, time consuming and mentally draining affair if you make bad decisions. Here are just *some* of the things that could go wrong...
You have no idea about the 11 factors you should take into account when choosing the location of your home or the 17 type of buildings or site conditions near which you should never build a home.
You don't know whether you're even at the right phase in your life to start building your home. You just think you need to build one because your peers are doing the same thing. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The home building process is like a symphony with a diverse cast of people doing specialized things at different stages and you need to know what everyone, including you, should be doing at each stage. If you don't, people will take advantage of you.
While we're all fans of Pinterest here, there is a lot of planning and preparation involved besides that before you even set foot inside an architect's office. Don't worry, Pinterest is in our workflow too!
And we haven't broken into the top 4 yet. Things could get a lot worse
This is not a full list but here are a few more super-costly errors that could adversely affect your project and finances long term.
YOU BUILD YOUR HOME WITH THE WRONG MATERIALS
You aren't aware of the 9 class of materials that you should completely avoid while building your home. As a result, in a process known as off-gassing, harmful compounds leach into your water or migrate into the the air in your home risking the well-being of your family.
Being a first time home builder, you haven't sat down to balance your current expenses and you think that the building quotes you received are all you need to consider.
You have no idea about the 7 step vetting process you should follow or the 10 red flags you should watch out for when choosing professionals. The result: you hire someone unqualified for the job who ends up fleecing you.
What if there was a single resource that could tell you everything you could possibly need to know about the home building process...

Our story and why we built The Dream Home Kit…
It began with a passion. A passion for inspiring people to dream…
Our mission has always been to help people imagine, create, and maintain beautiful homes. In pursuit of this mission, we sought expert advice and crafted content focusing on interior design, architecture and landscaping.
As we continued our work, people started to take notice…
Over time, something important came to our attention…
We recognised that the main challenge people face when designing and building their own home is that there is no one-stop resource to guide them through the process from start to finish. We even heard some sad and scary stories of people...
So, we set out to compile an easy-to-use kit that included beautiful plans, practical guidance, and insider knowledge. The Dream Home Kit was designed to be a comprehensive crash course in custom home creation. We’re proud to say, it does exactly that! But hey, don't take our word for it!
If you ever had angst about not knowing enough about the home building process — from ideation to completion, this is the single most important thing you could own.
