Hello friends!

As those of us in the U.S. prepare for Thanksgiving, I'm to share a connection between Thanksgiving dinner and planning a new home.

If you've never hosted Thanksgiving dinner, it may be easy to think, "How hard could it be? It's just putting out some plates and cooking a few dishes. I could do that." From the outside, many big projects look simpler than they are.

Experienced hosts know that pulling off a memorable event involves much more than the right dishes. Most of the work is invisible to the guests. An amazing event comes from the host managing a hundred details, over multiple days, behind the scenes. Real experience matters in getting it right.

Building a home is similar. From the outside, it can be easy to underestimate what's involved. The process seems pretty straightforward if you've never been through it.

You may ask: Do homeowners really need to prepare?

Home construction involves thousands of discussions, decisions, and dilemmas that you can't see or anticipate from the outside. Virtually every day you're confronted with decisions you never expected to make. This is where expensive, avoidable mistakes happen.

You deserve better. You deserve to start your project with an accurate picture of what to expect, how to prepare, and how to navigate the entire process. That's why we created Build Livable.

Our self-paced courses solve this problem by explaining every phase and what you need to know.


Get the Courses: 2 for 1

We offer two comprehensive online courses that prepare homeowners for construction:

We're offering a Black Friday 2-for-1 discount on these courses. Get BOTH for $99 until November 28th.

If the courses help you avoid a single mistake, they pay for themselves.

Wishing you and yours a happy Thanksgiving!
