On the materials selections process

I’ve been in discussions with a group of builders about the importance of making all the project selections before starting a project.  A good friend summed up the need for making decisions very well:

“I always use the analogy of the car assembly line.  Can you imagine trying to build a car as it comes down the assembly line and there are no parts ordered, but the car is waiting to have them installed?  Not only would there be a major delay in the finished product but you’d never know the actual budget, there are bound to be huge cost overruns, poor quality… you name it.”  A great illustration of the importance of selecting materials before beginning the construction of their project.  – Anthony Lightman, Osprey Custom Homes
