Road Sign with the Words Happy Ending Ahead - Daniel Builders

You’ve heard the stories before. Client goes to a custom builder with a big dream. Builder says no problem and off they go building, when seemingly out-of-the-blue MAJOR problems arise. Questions and fears multiply. Will my project ever be complete? How much added cost? And ultimately how bad can this get? A ton of money, time, sanity and yes someone's very home is at stake.

On this episode of Ready, Set, Renovate! Hailey Evans shares how she worked hard to keep her custom home from turning into a contractor horror story. She and her builder (not Daniel Builders) thought they had a good idea how everything would go, but those expectations changed radically after a few months of building, and not for the better. Issues surrounding COVID only added to the difficulties. Being a “can-do” person, Hailey rolled up her sleeves and became the self-appointed project manager for her custom home. Pretty remarkable considering she had zero experience as a builder! As she articulates, the learning process wasn't easy, but rewarding. Hailey was determined her custom home story would have happy ending. Fortunately, the ending was happy in more ways than one.
