Self Build Management Assistance

“Self-Build” Management Assistance

Timber Ridge Design

If you are trying to save some costs on your home or cottage building project and acting as your own general contractor TRD can provide additional construction advice and details that will save you money and time at each stage while building a more energy efficient home that will pay you back every month.


A big barrier to successful self-building is the potential for problems with trades.  We can help you manage your trades in three important ways:

1) Scheduling – TRD will provide you with timeline literature for what to do when from the permit application process to having all the custom materials ordered at the right time to having the final trims pieces installed stress free and avoid undo delays or interference.
2) Quality Control – We will inform you for what to look for and how to determine what is is trade standard and will pass to what needs to be repaired or replaced by the appropriate trades people, making sure the critical task are done right and that small but potentially costly mistakes are corrected before they are hidden from view by drywall or siding.  Also provide you with the correct information to inform and also which questions to ask each trade from the first meeting right through to the final walk through.
3) Price Awareness – With years of construction experience we can help you compare products and trade services to help you get the right quality at the best price.  If you have all but a few trades lined up and need to fill those voids, TRD has multiple certified trade references to provide you for each and every trade.

Our project management assistance service provides you with better budget control, a clear understanding of your trade and product options and over all of these the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have a journeyman builder to contact who is looking out for your best interests.  

Let TRD show you the low-stress way to “Self-Build” your next home or Cottage!
