Don’t Let Costs Prevent You from Building your Dream Home

OP TOTW 21014Listen to insider tips from award-winning homebuilder Orren Pickell.

When it comes to building a home, big or small, cost is a universal concern. With so many elements in the mix, dollars can quickly get out of hand. This is why it is so critical to stick to your budget. Orren Pickell Building Group has an outstanding process in place as well as a team of experts who thoroughly understand how you can adhere to your budget while creating the home of your dreams.

Here are two rules of thumb from Pickell:

  1. Don’t make it bigger than it needs to be.
  2. Don’t make it any more complicated than it needs to be.

The key is to design a space that is both comfortable and livable—a simple equation for success, but one that requires careful planning and clear, open communication. “Let’s not make it more expensive than we have to,” says Orren Pickell, the company’s president and chief executive officer.

Throughout the homebuilding process, OPBG keeps a close eye on every element that can drive up the cost of construction. To keep construction costs within budget OPBG recommends finishes that are beautiful but also practical and long lasting. “If you put the right materials into the home, the residual cost of maintenance will come down,” Pickell says. And with their extensive experience and knowledge of the homebuilding experience, OPBG knows instinctively how to make that happen. Visit OPBG’s website at
