Testimonials

Zach & Erin Taylor

Zach & Erin Taylor

Zach & Erin Taylor are an amazing couple! They also were able to build their home quickly, just like Zach's parents, but they added to the mix chasing kiddos around! They did a great job and are now enjoying the fruits of their labor.

Danny & Kim Taylor

Danny & Kim Taylor

The Danny and Kim Taylor family blew through their construction project in just over 3 months! What? How did they do that? Most builders don't build that fast! Their goal was to have as much of their selection process as possible completed before they started construction and then in order to move quickly, COMMUNICATION is the key with subcontractors! Check out their photos!

Michael & Anissa St. Clair

Michael & Anissa St. Clair

The St. Clairs met with us several months ago and got started on their design process with our designer (David has been working with our clients for over 15 years and he understands their goals of saving money but still producing a quality home). The St. Clairs built on a reclaimed lot in the city of Dallas where the previous home had burned down.

Scott & Julie Davis

We knew we wanted to work with Owner Builder Network on our new home since my sister (Julie's sister and brother-in-law – Jeff & Nettie Mallet) built their home with OBN several years ago. We had very specific ideas of materials we wanted to use in our home, especially on the finish out.

Owner Builder Network allowed us to provide exactly what our family needed. My husband had gotten a new job so we needed to move and find a home that would accommodate our family of eight.

Wendy L.

There is no doubt it has been a challenge this summer "attempting" to build our custom home with the help of Owner Builder while I have spent the summer home with 4 kiddos. But, I absolutely have fallen in love with the process including organizing a plethora of details, acquiring bids, meeting new people, making phone call after phone call and LEARNING a ton of new things.

Scott and Larna R.

I have found that success has come through planning. The building calendar and building steps guide in the OBN notebook were essential. The OBN staff has also been very responsive to all of the questions we had along the way...

You guys have really looked at every angle to smooth...

Bill and Debra D.

I can't rave enough about the quality of workmanship from your subcontractors. This building is the best built structure in Keller as far as energy efficiency and quality. I added wind straps to the joists and it only added about $400 to the overall cost, I loved having that kind of project control. Thanks again for all your help...

"The choice was easy for us. Pay a builder thousands of dollars or pay OBN to help us save thousands. OBN taught us step by step how to build affordably, timely, and energy efficiently . a true 100 year home. Our family now lives in the dream home we could not afford with a builder. And upgrades- no tract home here! We have the hardwood floors, single and double Crown moldings, granite countertops...
