FOR OWNER-BUILDERS

The Collective Home platform offers a compelling solution for owner-builders who want to build a high performance home without the risk and time involved in designing and executing the structure, insulation, and air and weather control layers.

While it’s not impossible for a first-time owner-builder to manage the process of incorporating a prefabricating building envelope – and coordinating all of the local trades required to do the work on time and on budget – we find that most owner-builders looking to build with Collective are coming with significant building experience.

In addition to purchasing the prefabricated building envelope from Collective Carpentry, owner-builders can either work with outside collaborators, or directly with Collective Carpentry for design modifications, structural engineering, windows & doors, delivery, and installation.  The owner-builder manages all sitework and foundation, as well as follow-on trades like plumbing, electrical, mechanical, roofing, siding, drywall, and finish carpentry.
