My name is Nate. I'm a horse trainer in Lamar, Colorado. I didn't have any prior experience in construction, just normal day to day ranch work. I contacted Redstone Engineered Homes Systems to see what kind of house I could build. The price for a modular was going to cost $95,000 with a foundation. I didn't want a modular because of the resale value, I contacted a few builders in my area, and the cheapest was $100 per sq' for a stick built home with plain jane finishes. I sent a sketch to Redstone of the floor plan that I wanted. Within a few days, I had a quote for the engineered home system. Redstone helped me with a construction budget of $88,000 for the finished house. They were very helpful with negotiating with the sub-contractors so I could get a fair price for their work.
I purchased the engineered system in June of 07. While the sub-contractor was building my foundation, Redstone was building my engineered system. The last week of June the engineered system was delivered to my ranch. On the 4th of July I had 3 friends of mine lined up to help me put the "kit" together. All the walls were numbered and easy to understand. At the end of the 4 day weekend, I had every thing up except the roof sheathing. My friends had to leave, and it took my ranch hand and I 2 more days to put the sheathing on and install the windows. I never did anything like this before. The windows were real easy to install. The openings were so square, that all I had to do was make sure the windows were centered in the opening. After 6 days the "kit" was up and under roof. Anytime I had a question, I would just make a phone call, Redstone was always there to help.
From this point on, I could only work on the house in the evenings, after riding horses all day. I had all my sub-contractors lined up to do the work that I couldn't do. I moved in the house during the 2nd week of October. I went over budget by about $12,000, because I put hardwood floors in, and also had the home stucco sided.
My final cost for everything was just over $100,000. My cost per sq' foot was $55.55.
I saved $80,000 over a stick built home, and it's not a modular home.
I would recommend your company to anyone you wants to save money building a house.
