If you are handy or can gather friends and family who have talent in the trades, you would likely be interested in shell or super shell packages that let you complete your own custom home. With the DIY movement, many people have learned there are some things they can build or construct and other things better left to professionals. If you prefer on your lot construction in the Northwest, consider a residential home builder with options for the DIY home owner. Before making a final decision, consult with friends and family about their abilities, skills and time commitments. Find out whether you would have to pay for assistance with completing a home.

Do you have plumbing and electrical skills?

If you have a background in plumbing and electrical, but can’t do heavy lifting, opt for the “Shell” package offered by HiLine Homes for on your lot construction in the Northwest. HiLine completes the foundation, finishes the framing and installs the windows, siding, roofing and exterior doors. If you have electrical or plumbing knowledge or know someone who does, the shell package could work well for you.
