It’s your home.
Make sure it reflects your voice.
It’s your building project, so the choices should be yours. From sub-contractors to materials, we make sure you have the final say. You see every receipt and invoice. Nothing is hidden.
Home Sweet Home Designs, Inc. has a unique approach: we work directly with homeowners, giving you the option to self-contract your own home. Self-contracting is a great way to save money and build equity, but you may wonder if you have the time or knowledge to tackle it.
Surprised? Indeed, most people are unaware that they can do this.
The benefits of self-contracting, without the headaches.
We take care of the bidding process while giving you the option to use any sub-contractor you may know. You also have the freedom to contribute as much or as little sweat equity as you like.
We specify everything ahead of time, before plans go out for bid. This allows us to “count all the costs” before construction to establish a realistic budget and eliminate any hidden costs.
Your dreams, come to life.
We also offer a full custom home design service, carefully planning room arrangements and traffic flow to maximize the size of each room by eliminating wasted space.

We bid out the entire job using our proven sub-contractors, or you can choose to supply some of your own.
We schedule and manage the entire job from start to finish.
We ensure quality workmanship and conformity to codes and specifications.
We work with your lender, track your job each month, and process all requests for payments.
