Offsite Building Guide

What goes into offsite building?

Building “offsite” can be extremely rewarding!  We want you set up for success as you pursue your dream home on your dream property.  Not only is it important for you to start considering these topics for your own knowledge, but any builder that you are considering should bring up ALL of these points as well.  Knowing all of the information that could affect your build and budget will ensure that the partner you are pursuing for your new home can navigate your property and home construction for the best possible outcome.

WITHOUT a team like Overstreet AND proper guidance, building “offsite” can be intimidating, costly and a huge headache.  FEAR NOT!  We are here to help!

This guide is:

  • To get you set up for future conversations with your Overstreet rep.
  • To get you prepared for questions  and discussions that will be coming your way and   how to start finding the answers.
  • To help you understand why certain steps need to be taken.
  • And many other considerations.

We will help you avoid potential disasters in your “offsite” building journey.

We hope that you will find some helpful information in this guide.  And remember!.. We are the expert in this field… let us work with you to put the pieces in place!  Missing just one tiny piece of this intricate puzzle could completely blow your budget, prevent the entire project from happening (yes, sadly, we’ve seen it happen) or turn your dream build into a nightmare.  We do not want that to happen to you.  Let us oversee your project so that you have the best outcome possible.

Use this as an overview of the things you need to keep in mind while selecting your city, property and floor plan so that there are no surprises and your build experience is as smooth as possible!  Being “in the know” – as they say – will help you feel the most satisfied with your overall experience.
