DirectBuild Construction Consulting Franchise Information:

The Company
DirectBuild®, LLC, established in Colorado in 2005, provides Construction Consulting services to "owner-builder" homeowners wanting to be their own general contractor. DirectBuild, LLC was founded by Michael New, an award-winning custom home builder with more than 20 years of experience in California and Colorado. Michael has developed a proven system for DirectBuild, based on two generations of custom building experience, to help an owner-builder efficiently manage their own construction projects and achieve the best quality for their money.

Another unique distinction of DirectBuild are the marketing and sales objectives. DirectBuild offers construction-consulting services to owner-builders building a higher value of finished homes ranging from $250,000 in smaller markets to $2 million and up in larger markets. With the current and projected homebuilding starts in the $200-400K leveling off nationally, this trend provides additional opportunities for DirectBuild to serve the upper-income bracket of owner-builders who are not affected as directly by marketplace economic changes.

The Opportunity
Over 194,000 homeowners nationwide acted as their own general contractor in 2005 (NAHB and U.S. census). This national and regional trend has been developing at approximately this same number for the past five years, and represents an increasing number of "owner-builders" who are seeking consulting services to assist them in the building of their own home.

This "smaller-niche" market provides a unique opportunity for a qualified individual to own and operate a construction-consulting business serving the ever-growing "baby-boomer" and "empty-nester" consumer marketplace. With DirectBuild®'s Franchise Program and DirectBuild's experienced people, a Franchise owner will have every opportunity to succeed in this business.

The Product
A DirectBuild® franchise offers a turnkey consulting program to people who want to build their own home rather than hire a general contractor. With the buying power of large national builders, DirectBuild passes through cost savings of 20-40% when clients use our pre-screened network of sub-contractors and suppliers.

A detailed and proven process along with 25 scheduled site consultations allow clients with little or no construction experience to become successful owner-builders.

Affiliated vendors, such as Sherwin-Williams and Pella Windows and Doors, provide quality materials and supplies for DirectBuild clients with real savings. Additionally, clients have access to real estate land professionals, architects, designers and lending specialists.
