3. Deal Direct with a Full-Service Prefabricated Home Manufacturer

Don’t waste time and money dealing with a “middle man.” Find a manufacturer that you can deal with directly.

Even better, find a manufacturer who can walk you through the entire process. The right company will offer you more than just “export” experience.

Find a company that offers a full-range of services like design, engineering support, permit drawings, freight rates, site supervision, prefabrication (to make assembly quick and easy) and help with planning and budgeting.

Getting this kind of help from your manufacturer can save you thousands of dollars and months of planning work because you are not wasting time on focusing on the wrong priority items to get your house built.

Tamlin is a manufacturer and a builder with nearly 40 years of experience in full residential construction. While we are not going to build your house, we will work with your local builder (or recommend one where possible) and be an incredibly valuable resource for you.

Give us a call at our Toll Free: 1-877-826-5461 and let’s talk about how we can help you get your custom home built.

4. Save Construction Management Fees

With Tamlin’s help, many home owners are delighted that they can manage their own projects much more cost effectively. And that’s on top of saving 30-40% on importing your dream home from Tamlin!

If you feel that you have some project management skills, enough time and resources to manage your project, this may be a great option for you. We can help you decide if you want to take it on — ask us how you could coordinate your own project and reduce your building budget significantly!

Typically fees for managing your project will be 10-20% depending on your location and particulars of your project. Why not pay yourself to do the work?

When you build a Tamlin Home Package, you have our expertise on your side. We can advise and point you in the right direction to help save time and make more efficient use of your resources.

5. Get Help Choosing Your “Team” of Experts

To build your home, you’ll need your own “Team” of experts. While you may be the “quarterback” you may need a great coach to help offer you guidance from the sidelines. Let’s say you have some building experience or know family or friends who can help you but you are not sure where to begin or need advise on how to save time to get started. We can help with that!

Tamlin supports our clients by helping them organize their planning process, make the right contacts and put together their team of construction experts. We have been building dream homes for 40 years — we know how to get this done!

We can help you get proper bids from sub trades, work out budgets, and get your house to weathertight “lock up “ as soon as possible. Even if you’ve never built a house before and want to hire a project manager, we can help ensure they are doing things “right.” For example, we can communicate technical details with them, while sharing your goals for design.

There is a lot we can do to help you save money and build a stunning high-quality custom home. Give us a call today or email me back (hit “reply” or email me directly at [email protected]).
