Dear Future Home Builder:

mike pompeii My name is Mike Pompeii. I recently subcontracted and built my own home & documented the whole experience into a step-by-step PROCESS THAT YOU CAN COPY AND USE.

I am also an experienced Home Inspector who is well aware of the right way to construct a home, as well as home construction pitfalls and mistakes to avoid. I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in engineering, and am a licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.).

The fact is that you can save about 20% to 30%
of the cost of your new home by doing it yourself.

  • The best way to find and develop house plans and drawings.

  • What construction loans are and how they work.

  • How to save thousands of $$$ in closing costs by using a certain type of construction loan.

  • Details on planning and scheduling the construction.

  • Details on insurance and recordkeeping.

  • Essential tools and equipment that you really need.

  • Detailed information on permits, building codes, and inspections.

  • How to find and select good subcontractors.

  • The most important subcontractor. (You will be surprised!)

  • Numerous "Helpful Hints" for each phase of construction.

  • And much more!
