How to Build Your Dream Home!

By Illinois Valley Community College | Mar 03, 2014

So you’re thinking of building a house? Remodeling your current home to meet your current needs? Check out IVCC's Continuing Education and Business Services "How to Build Your Dream Home" 6-9 p.m. Thursday, March 13 and 20 in room C-316. 

This informative class will take you through the house planning stages from turning that first shovel of dirt all the way through to the certificate of occupancy issued by the building inspector. Avoid the “money pit". Learn the dos and don’ts of building your dream home from a former contractor who has 35 years of experience in the building industry.

Topics include deciding on the style of your house, visiting showrooms and show homes for ideas, financing, insurance, hiring a contractor, building permits, project schedule, making changes not included in the contract, inspections, warranties, and resolving problems. Whether you plan on building this year or in the future, or remodeling your existing home, this course will help you make informed decisions.

The cost of this two-session class $45. For information, call (815) 224-0427 or to register, call (815) 224-0447.
