Construction To Permanent Loans

In any building or structure, construction vehicles would serve different purposes. Without the help of such equipment, it is not possible to complete any construction. This is the very reason why it is important to know about construction vehicles. We should understand and have a good idea of what this industry aims for.

To state that the work was hard would be an understatement. It was very hard and took brute strength to get it done. It was a crude and brutal environment with injuries being commonplace. It was a man’s world and the females were not welcome or wanted on the job site. Of course they would occasionally tour the building site or work in the construction trailer on some sites as a secretary but that was the extent of their involvement.

Story #1: We all reacted negatively to the idea of living in a Construction zone. What an imposition! Yet we could actually see through the construction to the beauty of what was to come. What had been just “ok” was going to be gorgeous. All we had to do was see through the mess and chaos to the perfection and beauty already present in the thoughts of the architect and builder.

Is it cost effective for you to do this? If you went to work and paid an external project manager to take control (and responsibility) from your wages would you have a better quality of life during the project? Would you feel out of sync with it? Could you relinquish that much control? Only you can decide these things but just make sure you at least consider all the options and consequences before accepting the role. It will cost more, proportionally speaking, to engage a project manager further down the line to rescue a self build nightmare than it would to include one from the start with a contract and guarantees etc.

Also, provide yourself with a Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK). Study it and look for key points; the PMP Exam is taking its questions from this manual. Then understand and remember lessons from the PMBOK for the exam.

The thing is, nothing raises your insurance rates like being in an accident. And nothing screams, “Help yourself to a piece of this ten car pile-up” like winter and road construction! You’re obviously going to do everything possible to prevent yourself from ending up in that situation, but bad things happen to good people every day. The secret is to minimize the impact those “bad things” are going to have on your auto insurance quotes.

A little history of my time in the construction industry will give you an idea of my expertise in this field. I have been involved in the construction industry for over forty years starting as general a general laborer than working in plumbing than teaching than being a superintendent and finally a construction manager/consultant. I have worked on commercial projects ranging in cost from $10,000 to $30,000,000.

With everything planned and laid out, you should have a reasonable estimate on how long it’s going to take the construction to finish. If you know how long it would take, it would be less stressful for you. Of course, monitoring the project from time to time is necessary too. After all, you would want to make sure that the builders are doing everything right. You would also want to protect your investment.
