STRAWBALE.COM reviews The Elements of Building:

"The moment I started reading The Elements of Building, I knew that the author was someone I wanted to listen to. The opening section of the book outlines his “rules, ethics, and opinions” as related to the construction industry and within those elements lies a list of details which I have long believed to be essential attributes of a quality builder. Unfortunately, those elements are far too often ignored or simply absent in builders. His up-front placement of these key elements creates a positive foundation for the book and a worthy guidepost for any builder.

Mark follows his own advice throughout the book when he says “Break every large task. goal, or project into smaller parts.” He outlines every step of a very complicated business in a simple to comprehend layout that not only teaches, but inspires further learning. I have been a professional builder for 20 years and I found myself glued to the book.

Whether you are an accomplished builder or just starting out, this book will help define the myriad of details that define a quality builder, contractor, sub contractor, consultant or any other professional working within the building industry. From personnel to suppliers, insurance requirements to code enforcement, and everything in between, this book lays out what you need to know and how to implement that knowledge successfully into your business."

SELLING A HOUSE

Before listing a property for sale, consider paying to have a home inspection done. This offers several important advantages: You choose the inspector. It will be obvious that you are not hiding anything. You can replace or repair those things you choose to and let people know in the listing the items that will be sold ”as is.” If buyers choose to have their own inspection done, there will be few surprises and, therefore, less disruption to the sales process. And it may remove the aggravation of the buyer using the home inspection report to gain concessions or lower the sales price. EOB, Home Inspection Notes

Avoid using the burdensome, traditional capital raising methods and soliciting hard-money lenders to purchase your next acquisition or finance the renovations. Crowdfunding is a quick and easy way to raise capital for your projects. https://goo.gl/1zHnVI

"An 'assemble' is a grouping of items, including labor and material, necessary to complete a task. For example, a plumber creates an assemble to replace a standard gas hot water heater—pan, unit, relief valve, wiring, piping, and labor to remove the old and install the new unit. Or a framing contractor creates an assembly to frame an 8’ stud wall—studs, plates, bracing, sheathing, glue, nails, labor—and converts that cost into either a square foot or linear foot figure."
