Self Builder Services, Inc. provides a unique opportunity for OWNERS to be involved in the construction process of their custom home. Through our program, the owner is in the driver's seat at all times, making decisions and choices on material, suppliers, and subcontractors. You may - or may not - want to participate in the actual construction work yourself. The beauty of working with Self Builders Services is that the choice is yours!

As the owner, you have complete control of the construction budget. You decide exactly how to spend your money. You are able to build at contractor's wholesale prices, and if you find or negotiate better pricing, the surplus is yours, and remains in your budget! Building at wholesale prices gives you more house for the money and instant equity. Just ask our clients!
