special offers BY MR X A former home builder admits that blaming the recession for his companys failure would be easy but looking hard at his own mistakes is a lot more useful Starting out with the best of intentionsI started my home-building business after burning out as a high-school science teacher My goals were simple: start a small residential contracting business dedicated to great design quality construction and green building My wife was incredibly supportive yet understandably nervous Nevertheless she did not nor has ever faltered RELATED ARTICLES Change orders can help avoid dreaded lawsuits 20 considerations that help a project run smoothly Remodeling trauma The business case for smaller is better Being a virginal builder I couldn’t convince any sane individual to contract with me to build their home and I didn’t want to build for insane people My wife and I stretched out on a limb a bit and decided to build a home my first build for us Our plan was to live in the home for a few years establish the construction company and see what happened On this first home I touched every stick and brick myself And that house was the first in our state to be recognized by a regional green-building certification program It was a "right time right place" scenario and as a result the house garnered a fair amount of media attention and generated interest in our company I resisted taking on employees because I really didnt want to be responsible for other peoples livelihood But thanks to the publicity the demand for my companys services was such that I had no choice I could no longer be effective without help so I hired a couple of folks including the man who would become our general manager But I stayed awake nights worrying about having enough work and about missing paydays My wife and I moved into that first house and within a year were presented with an offer to sell The potential buyers had been living in an older home and worried about exposing their child to lead paint They wanted to build or buy a green home and I offhandedly suggested they take a look at our place The deal was done very quickly The buyers were sold immediately grew a family in the home and still live there to this day Since we didnt even have to list the house on the real estate market and sold the home for a profit I realized the potential power of spec building Even though that first house wasnt technically a spec house it worked out that way and I was immediately addicted to building spec rather than custom homes I knew how I wanted our homes to look and how I wanted them to perform I didnt want to concede to a clients agenda I felt like I could sell any home as rapidly as I could get it built and thats what we did for next few years Up until 2008 we sold every home within two weeks of completion Initially making money was not one of my goals All I wanted was a decent salary for me and for my employees At that point being such a small company We were a very tight knit group Employees became fast friends with similar goals and motives We wanted to grow be the best and save the planet all at the same time I didnt care about big profits As it turned out this was one of my biggest mistakes [[[PAGE]]]From builder to developerFor the next four years our company continued to build and sell spec homes at the rate of 2-3 per year We also built a few customs and tackled the occasional renovation project In 2007 I took on my first partner My good friend and freshmen college roommate bought shares in the company and took over our sales and marketing At this point we had four or five projects going at once and over a dozen employees My old friendship with my new business partner grew stronger and our families became very close My wife and I had our first child during this period as well which added to a euphoric state of mind I think I actually and embarrassingly developed a sense of invincibility We were having a great time Homes were selling the media was calling and leads were coming in Our city was getting a lot of national media attention The city hadnt seen the huge up tick in home prices that some of the coastal areas had but over the last 15 years real estate prices steadily grew to some of the highest in the state That coupled with the momentum of people immigrating to town added to our confidence We believed the Chamber of Commerce and media as they were hyping our citys strength and growth potential as well We were in exactly the right place in the right business at the right time Life was good My wife began selling our houses bolstering our ability to garner more income There was an amazing comforting and motivating consistency that was a threaded theme throughout this phase of my life: my marriage My wife and I have grown closer with every stage of our relationship We didn’t listen to the naysayers the nagging nettles that say that marriage is hard and no fun We started our relationship with transparency mutual respect and fervor for effective communication We were getting even better at that during this phase of the business I felt that I was building a company that could be a legacy–one of those folkloric idealistic companies that I could pass on to the future generations of our family if they wanted it Family was a motivator and a reason to do good work I felt that the addition of my good friend of many years would add to that motivation In retrospect I was naively Utopian in my thinking If I had a dollar for every time that I heard that going in to your business with a friend was a bad idea… I couldn’t or refused to think that the partnership could be anything but a great thing Our two families worked together ate together played together and grew our families together With the oncoming storm all of the relationships in my life were about to be taxed and stressed Only time could reveal how far that tension could stretch before snapping [[[PAGE]]] Early in 2007 I received a call from the CEO of a company that manufactured prefab housing They were interested in partnering with us This fairly liquid company wanted to invest in property and develop green homes We had the building knowledge and a good reputation but no cash A partnership looked like a great way to gain some business acumen pay off some of our debts and get some working capital So we made a deal and I now had my second partner The contract we signed a shareholders agreement established their partial ownership of our company however it did not clarify anyones specific responsibilitiesanother big mistake The partnership really marked our companys switch from builder to developer and began a serious ramp-up process Our corporate partners balance sheet allowed us to borrow more money from the banks so we bought land and started a small nine-lot subdivision Something that I couldn’t pull into focus and be cognizant of at that time was what it truly meant to have business partners It seemed that we were all heading toward fulfilling the same goals and had similar enough motivations to enjoy the journey but again I had on some utopian blinders During the same timeframe a giant wave was forming in the countrys economy The energy behind that wave had been swelling for years but like nearly everyone else we just ignored it We felt invincible seduced by the possibility of what our company could become This is specific to my situation and not a generalization but it seems like that during heady times in bull markets that fundamental and philosophical differences are easier to ignore So what if my college buddy was more interested in selling and marketing than the tenants of green building and conservation Big deal if our corporate partner looked at the business from a corporate standpoint That’s what makes for healthy balance sheets right These differences were easy to justify when homes were selling It would become increasingly blatant to me that hard times increase erosion rates between our philosophical differences The economic shit storm worked just like torrents dropping on barren soil The stress would end up carving a deep and wide canyon between the three business partners Look my glass is half full and I like aligning my work with my philosophical ideals National media promised major marketingIn 2008 the producers of the television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition contacted our new partner about building a home in New Orleans Since our company would share the proverbial spotlight this seemed like a phenomenal marketing opportunity We made several planning trips to New Orleans And among other things I got the USGBC involved and convinced the project team to register with the LEED for Homes rating system USGBC saw the marketing opportunity They sent a great support team to the build to expedite the certification process The president of the USGBC came down to New Orleans and I toured him around the completed project They also created a project profile for the home and pushed that on their website The travel was a bit tough at first for our family but we saw this as an incredible opportunity and great investment for our business future At the transition between the winter and spring of 2008 my wife and I found out that we were expecting our second child Both of our kids were planned but that doesn’t necessarily mute the concerns and pending responsibility of having children In keeping with the shows tradition the house was completed in only five days and new to the show received a Platinum certification In fact it was the first LEED certified home in Louisiana and one of only 10 Platinum homes in the country at that time But for a lot of reasons the marketing spotlight never focused on us We were just part of the team overseeing the green strategies All of the time effort and money we donated turned out for naught [[[PAGE]]] Around the same time our company was also approached about building a Southern Living Idea House just outside of town This project would be featured in the magazine with an associated summer tour that we were told would bring in ten to twenty thousand people Readership for the Idea House issue was supposedly 16 million Once again the marketing potential seemed too great to pass up We were forced to create a budget for the project before the plans were complete Then we discovered a spring under the detached garage that required additional engineering and work on our end Sponsors were specifying products as we built and some even charged us for materials we thought were going to be donated The charges were discounted but unexpected nonetheless We were over budget and behind but we were also under the gun and risked ruining our reputation if we didnt deliver a great house on time This was a pivotal time for us We had huge PR opportunities and wanted to be ready for the inevitable (we thought) demand for information about our company We believed that the combination of magazine and TV coverage would result in major web traffic and call volume We wanted to have marketing materials in place and a web site and server setup to handle the traffic We saw this time as our chance to make it big When it aired I couldn’t wait to see this behemoth TV show purport the efforts of the build team and the green achievements of the home For whatever editing corporate or production reason the green accomplishments weren’t covered in the episode The sustainable attributes of the project were boiled down to a sentence about the pervious pavers in the driveway This house used 50% less power than an equivalent home built to the International Energy Conservation Code It had great systems a kicking envelope sealed crawl with breakaway flood doors etc etc etc I was very disappointed but learned some very important lessons It was obvious to me that I couldn’t assume that talk and execution are exclusive I also learned that it is very challenging to align differing philosophies no matter how much I wanted to The most important lesson that I learned during this time was really a reinforcement: for me family is paramount It is why I am who I am and ultimately why I do what I do I have a wonderful and powerful relationship with my wife and I was developing an incredible powerful relationship with this new human that was part her part me and all her own person I had a new best friend and another one on the way I felt an undeniable urgency to get my shit together Unfortunately the countrys economic degradation paralleled the construction of these two homes As we built the economy crumbled Im not sure if it was naiveté arrogance or what that kept me from paying closer attention When I finally realized what was going on it was too late
