MAITLAND, Fla., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Since the late '90s, there has been a spike in the popularity of becoming an owner builder, that is, people are increasingly customizing their homes from the foundation-up. Since word-of-mouth has been the major source of information about this popular venture, Dr. Linda M. Combs chose to compile all of the vital information of the owner builder process in one place. Her new book, The Owner Builder Experience: A Cautionary Tale, ($13.99, paperback, 9781498403658; $6.99, e-book, 9781498403665) follows the entire project from beginning to end. The author discusses her first-hand experiences as an owner builder, and her advice to potential owner builders, including a "Lessons Learned" section.
"The reader should become aware of cautions and suggestions to help them be better prepared to be owner builders," states the author. "This book offers insights to help individuals decide whether the owner builder route to home ownership is one they wish to undertake."
Dr. Linda M. Combs is an educator who holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in teaching from Sam Houston State University and advanced degrees, Master of Education and Doctor of Education, from Texas A&M University. During her thirty-two year career, she has acquired extensive training and experience in project and human resources management. Dr. Combs is the owner builder described in this book. She had direct interaction with the owner builder network advisors, and personally interviewed and developed agreements with contractors who were selected. In addition, she prepared and submitted all aspects of the project budget, including: developing and obtaining the construction loan, paying contractors, and transitioning to the mortgage loan.
