I write this in hopes of saving anyone looking to build a home in Brookings heartache, and urge everyone to be proactive, as for me, the process was a disaster.

Once you have decided to build, do your homework when selecting a contractor to build your dream home. Check the contractor’s board, check the licensing and hopefully get recommendations and references. The building process is exciting and you as homeowners should follow along closely to ensure you are getting what you paid for. It is not only the contractor that can make mistakes.
