What You Don’t Know About Construction Managers and Custom Homes

When people build a custom home, it’s usually so they can have the house of their dreams. They want more input and more of a chance to see where their money goes than usually comes with working with a traditional builder.

As a part of building your dream home, it’s always a good idea to work with a professional construction manager. Whether you want to be able to choose special home features, hire specific subcontractors, or maybe even do some of the work yourself, it’s critical to keep the importance of construction managers in mind.

What is a construction manager, exactly?

A typical construction manager job description would be something like this:

Construction managers are the person that monitors and manages the day-to-day activities on a custom home build. Once building has begun, a construction manager is the point of contact for subcontractors, suppliers, and homeowners.

Some of the responsibilities of a qualified construction manager are:

  • Assisting and coordinating in project design
  • Managing all permits and paperwork
  • Collecting bids, hiring, and supervising subcontractors
  • Ordering building materials
  • Making sure county codes are met and inspections are passed
  • Providing direction for the mortgage process and lending inspections

Your construction manager will also be who you go to for tours of your home while it is being built. He will take you through the construction site, and answer any of the questions that you might have about the ins and outs of the building process, as well as pointing out aspects of the project that he thinks might need your attention.
