Behind the Scenes
When you're working with a home builder on a new custom home, you're often dealing with the builder and his or her subcontractor. Everything from the original floor plans to the size and depth of the Master bath, you will be speaking with the builder to communicate your vision and needs and to the subcontractor to communicate the execution. Who you won't come into much contact with are the construction workers and other laborers on the project. But these individuals are the backbone of the operation. Recent findings note that the cost and availability of labor is the top challenge homebuilders expect to face this year. As builders, we can say that one of the crucial elements of maintaining a good quality business is to create partnerships with local vendors and laborers in which trust and reliability are key. When you've managed to build a certain level of loyalty when issues like this labor shortage arise, you can rest easy knowing that you may not be as short behind the scenes as predicted.
