Kit Home Building Tips

• If you decide to assemble a kit home, you will have to convince your mortgage lender that you are capable of successfully completing the project. Do this before you buy the kit.

• Expect to spend up to a year building and finishing a kit home yourself.

• If you hire a contractor to build your kit home, choose someone who has experience with a factory-built home. Many kit manufacturers can provide you with the names of skilled contractors in your area.

• If you want to be directly involved in the construction of your kit home but don't feel competent to manage the entire project, consider hiring yourself out to your contractor as a worker.

• Significant differences exist between various kit-home packages; read the specifications and the contract carefully so you know exactly what you are getting.
