Dovetail Construction is the realization of a childhood dream among two lifelong friends. Since Kevin and Tim were 5 years old and met in Mrs. Nathy’s kindergarten class, the two things they always wanted to do was to live in the mountains and to build. Both obtained engineering and construction management degrees and for many years followed their own paths working on major construction sites throughout the U.S. Kevin eventually escaped from New York and moved to Montana. When the two lads would occasionally meet up and have an adult beverage (or two), talk would always return to their childhood dream and plans would once again be hatched late into the

night. Well, one day that plan survived the second thoughts and Tim made a major move to The Last Best Place—where Dovetail Construction was born. Dovetail Construction can best be described as a family business that takes advantage of a wide range of construction experiences. Over the years they learned many things, but the two most important things they learned (even before they entered Kindergarten) were: do exactly what you say you’re going to do; and if you do something, do it right. It seems simple, because it is. Dovetail Construction, “Where Quality Joins Integrity.”

of being your own Contractor (and More)


hinking about it….

It is the American Dream to own your own home…and many people think they will save an enormous amount of money by building their own. This could be a costly mistake financially, emotionally and physically. Many aspects need to be considered and the purpose of this article is to help you think about avoiding some of the pitfalls and what you can do to make this a successful undertaking. There are several questions you will need to answer. Our hope is that you will be helped by this publication. Ask yourself… Do I really have the time to undertake a project so time consuming? Is it worth the time? How stressful will it be on my family? Do I really have the skills to build a home properly? Do I have the correct tools for those jobs I plan to do? If not, how much money will I spend on those tools? Will I use them again once the home is completed? Your home is the single largest investment you will make in your lifetime. Do you have the expertise to make sure this home will last you a lifetime?

A. Arranging Financing

Arranging and applying for a house loan can be quite involved and should be one of the first orders of business. Even if you feel that you have enough cash to do the job, applying for a home loan to allow for inevitable overruns due to increased material and labor costs or upgrades is always advised. Most mortgage companies will not lend money to cover the unanticipated costs on a home on which construction has already begun. As a selfcontractor, some lenders will not lend you more than 80% of the projected cost of your home. House plans, specifications and an itemized list of documented costs and bids must be provided to the lender. In calculating costs, do not allow for “sweat equity” as most lenders do not recognize this as a legitimate cost.

B. Bookkeeping Responsibilities IRS

The IRS requires that you send any sub who earns $600.00 or more a 1099 form at the end of the year. In the event you are audited, be prepared to prove that the sub is an independent contractor – that is, you did not have to supervise his work and you did not dictate what time he reported to the job. Tracking Materials Purchases It is very important to be on the site or have someone you can trust to document delivery slips. Returns must be accounted for since inaccurate billing can run up costs. You will need to check all invoices and account for all materials. Waste can add hundreds if not thousands to the cost of your home.

C. Construction Management

Do not take this area for granted. There is much more to building a home than meets the eye. Be realistic about your level of skill and the amount of time you can spend on the jobsite. Base your decision to put “sweat equity” into your home on your experience, 10 SWMBIA Home EXPO Magazine

skills and the amount of stress you and your spouse are able to manage. Your ability to handle long term disruption of schedules is just as important as your ability to swing a hammer. …and there’s more! Deposits Deposits may be required by all utilities before construction can begin. Make deposits early as some may take weeks to get their services connected. Insurance Do you know why builders carry Builder’s Risk, General Liability and Workman’s Compensation insurance on all of their building projects? Because they know what their liabilities are and YOU, as a self-contractor, may have to assume the same liabilities. General Liability Your lender may or may not require this type of insurance, but as a self-contractor, the permit purchaser and the property owner, YOU are responsible for any third party injuries that may occur on your property. Without the proper general liability protection, YOU will be held liable if anyone gets injured on the project, including children injured while playing on the jobsite. Builder’s Risk The mortgage lender will require this type of insurance which covers the home materials only (no bodily injury, etc.) Upon completion of the home and closing the loan, you will want to convert this policy to a homeowners policy. Your lender or insurance agent can explain this to you. Workman’s Compensation If you are not in the business of building homes, you may not be required to carry workman’s compensation insurance; however, it would be prudent to require any subcontractors you hire to provide certification of their workman’s compensation coverage. Also, it is important to know that any subcontractor who employs any number of workers is required by law to carry workman’s compensation insurance. Friendly Warning Do not accept a release of injury in lieu of a sub having workman’s compensation insurance as the release may not be binding in a court of law. There is an issue which has been increasing concern to property owners… there is a fine line between being an employer and a do-ityourself minded builder. A recent case in Oregon ruled that, since the property owner was serving as their own general contractor and had the right to control the worker, they were employers and therefore liable for workman’s compensation insurance. This presents a legal issue about which property owners should be knowledgeable. Your attorney or insurance agent can explain this exposure to you.

More to Think About:

Time Constraints Be prepared to spend at least 35 hours per week for probably 5-6 months. This is calculated for an average 1,500 sq. ft. home. If the home is larger, figure accordingly. Does your present employment allow enough flexibility to spend this amount of time away from your job? Selection & Scheduling of Subcontractors Remember these subcontractors have other jobs in progress besides yours. Their loyalty may be to those builders that give them the most work during the year. Will they be available to you at the proper time? For example, do you have the toilet installed before or after the flooring? One sub cannot do their work until another has completed theirs. Delays are costly, frequent and frustrating.

inspection of a single home under construction resulted in $20,000 worth of citations. (Source: NAHB Business Management) Warranty Responsibility If you build your own home and sell it to another party, you may be responsible for any defects that are discovered within a 10 year time frame. In the case of your death, your estate would be responsible for claims. As far as the law is concerned, you will be the builder and responsible for claims brought by subsequent owners of the home.

Bidding Expertise Do you really know how to properly analyze a cost break-down? Are you able to distinguish high bids, low bids and work quality? Are you allowing for all the materials you’ll need? For example, everyone knows to buy tile… what about grout, thin-set and spacers? Is everything that will be needed to complete the task included in the bid? Do you know enough about the work to realize if it’s not? Remember, the lender will require that your cost breakdown be documented and if you have not projected costs efficiently and run short of funds, the loan amount cannot be adjusted after it is approved. Technical Expertise As the general contractor of the home, it will be your responsibility to hire qualified, licensed and/or certified subcontractors. Do you have the technical expertise to oversee if the work is done properly? If, after inspection, the work is rejected by the Codes Department, who will absorb the cost to redo the work? While this work is being redone, time will be lost, and other subs may have to be rescheduled. Occupational & Safety Health Administration (OSHA) As the general contractor of your own home, you can be held responsible for all subcontractors who do not adhere to the construction site OSHA safety requirements. Specifics such as regulations involving stairways and ladders have been a major source of injuries among construction workers. OSHA has set out about 17 detailed rules that govern stairway and ladder use. Other OSHA standards for a jobsite include postings of emergency numbers and instructions in the event of an injury. If your jobsite became the target of an OSHA inspection, penalties for any infractions could be very costly. For example, in Texas one

Lien Laws In the event any of your subcontractors fail to pay their suppliers or laborers, a lien can be filed against your property. A lien is a claim against a piece of property and can cloud the title or deed to the property. These suppliers and laborers, if not paid, can file a lien against your property, even if you have paid the subcontractors. Permits Building permits and periodic inspections are required even if you are self-contracting. It can be a tedious and frustrating experience if you are not familiar with the system and all of the “red tape” requirements, which must be complied and before commencing work. Mistakes here can be costly and time consuming. Looking for more information? Visit or contact SWMBIA at (406) 585-8181 or

INSIDER Hints for design on a budget


at the kitchen. “You can never go wrong with neutrals, but color is hot now,” Edwards says. “Not necessarily vibrant colors — although for the right space, they can be fabulous — but think along the lines of buttery yellows, soft sage greens and nearly neutral blues.”

One of the most common fixes for a boring room is color. “Color is easy to do and inexpensive,” says Kathy Browning, owner of Design Consultants, a design firm in Virginia Beach, Va.

Adding accents to pieces you already own can also make a large difference. For instance, if your couch is not as exciting as it once was, try throwing a few fun accent pillows on it. Remember, throws and cushions, when selected as accents, can really bring new life to a tired piece of furniture. “The use of pillows, throws and draperies in living spaces enhances a room in many ways,” Warnock says. Fabrics also can add beautiful softness to a room and allow additional patterns and textures to be brought into a room.

pend lazy Saturday afternoons browsing the pages of Architectural Digest or Dwell, wishing you had the budget to hire an interior designer to replicate their artistic interiors? Well-designed rooms don’t always have to come with a huge price tag; in fact, designing on a budget may be easier than you think. Many times, by changing small elements, you can give a room an entirely new personality. Sometimes adding a few colorful pillows or picking up a paintbrush is all you need to do to make your room look like something out of the pages of a magazine.

Updating the color of just one wall in any room will give it an entirely new feel. Painting, when approached correctly, can be an enjoyable experience with instant rewards. Lauren Warnock, vice president director of design at Mary Cook Associates, an interior design firm based in Chicago, reminds home owners that warmer colors can make a room feel cozier and more inviting. Cooler colors like grey or “stark white,” on the other hand, may give a room a more industrial feeling. “Light airy colors open up a space, while deep, darker colors can make a room appear smaller,” Warnock says.

Another budget-friendly change is to rotate the artwork in a room. Using the same frames but changing the images can easily create a new theme or mood, and combining several different frames in different finishes and sizes can achieve different looks.

For the style-conscious, earthy tones such as ambers, browns, and rust are currently popular. “Using modern glamour hues such as white and black with a punch of a teal, coral or chartreuse color is very hot as well,” says Warnock.

Kate Brennan, vice president of new business development at Mary Cook, offers some advice for ready do-it-yourselfers. “Get excited about the transformation that will occur — usually people become more inspired to continue updating their homes.” Brennan says. “Take your project one step at a time and follow your gut.”

Connie Edwards, director of design for Shenandoah Cabinetry, has her own advice when it comes to color, particularly if you are looking

Often overlooked but strikingly effective, updated lighting can work wonders. “Lighting will dramatically change the mood of a room,” Warnock says. Try installing a new fixture or simply swapping out the shades on current fixtures. Installing dimmer switches can also make for an interesting change.



HOW TO LIVE with your remodeling project


What areas of your home will be off limits to workers?

Does your house have an alarm system? Will workers need a key or will someone always be there?

How will you ensure that your children and pets stay out of the work space?


How will trash removal be handled? Where will the remodeler locate the dumpster on your property?

Determine who you and your remodeler should contact for daily decisions or an after-hours emergency. For example, your contact may be the lead carpenter for the job, while the remodeler's contact could be your spouse.

Does the remodeler anticipate any interruptions of utilities during the project? If so, when and for how long? At certain stages of construction, the project may affect basic household necessities like water and electricity. Will you need to vacate the house at any time?

What are your expectations regarding clean up? Will sweeping be sufficient for a daily cleaning, or will you need a more thorough cleaning in order to use the space?

Designate a backup for each contact person to assure continuity in anyone's absence.

You should also use the pre-construction meeting to establish guidelines for the remodeling crew working on the project:

Create a place in your house where the contact persons can leave messages for each other (a securely anchored notebook is a good idea since it is less likely to disappear).

Speak up. If you are uncertain about any aspect of the project, be sure to let the contact person know.

Determine who you and your remodeler should contact for daily decisions or an after-hours emergency. For example, your contact may be the lead carpenter for the job, while the remodeler's contact could be your spouse.

What times will workers begin and end work at your home? Be sure to consider the neighbors as well as household members.

Where can workers park near the jobsite?

Will you allow workers to use your phone for local business calls?

Will bathroom facilities in your home be available to workers?

What is the remodeler's policy on smoking on the jobsite?

What is the remodeler's policy on the use of profanity? If you are especially sensitive to this issue, you should let your remodeler know.

Will you allow workers to play their radios at a reasonable volume? Are there any stations or programs that you do not want played?

emodeling your home is uniquely different from building a new one. With remodeling, your home becomes the worksite. You live side by side with the project from start to finish. Once construction begins, you'll probably long for simple pleasures like a dust-free home or a fully functioning kitchen or bath. But the end result will be well worth these inconveniences. Consistent and open communication between you and your remodeler will enhance your understanding of the project, provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, and ultimately help to make the experience a positive one for everyone involved. To facilitate this process, you need to: •

The Pre-Construction Meeting

One way to ensure the success of your project is to plan for and actively participate in a pre-construction meeting. This allows your remodeler to clarify procedures and explain how the job will progress. It also offers both you and your remodeler an opportunity to prepare for those issues that may arise later. You should think of this meeting as a forum for all participants to define their expectations and agree on the anticipated outcome. Some of the issues you may wish to cover at this meeting include: •

Will you allow your remodeler to place a company sign on your property? Remember that, in addition to being a marketing tool, signs help contractors and suppliers locate your home.

Preventing Remodeling Fever

The train-station atmosphere of a remodeling project can lead to remodeling fever. The main symptom of this temporary affliction is feeling a loss of control that results from disrupted routines and the impact on your personal space. The best way to prevent this fever is to prepare well, remember that “this too shall pass,” and focus on the progress being made. A few other suggestions from remodeling pros:

Prepare for inconvenience. A remodeling project can turn your home and — on some days — your life upside down. A kitchen remodel will, of course, affect meal planning. But a little ingenuity and some culinary shortcuts can lessen the impact. Set up a temporary cooking quarters by moving the refrigerator, toaster oven, and microwave to another room. Arrange a dishwashing station in your laundry room. If the weather is warm, fire up the grill and dine alfresco.

Designate a safe haven in your home where you can escape from the chaos and commotion.

Guard against dust. During a remodeling project, dust has the unfortunate tendency to appear everywhere from lampshades to plates stacked inside your kitchen cabinets. To keep out as much dust as possible:

1. Seal off doorways and stairs. 2. Turn off central air or heat when workers are sanding and stock up on extra filters so that you can change them often. 3. Have deliveries made though a designated entrance. 4. Use doormats and temporary floor coverings where appropriate. 5. Remove anything that might get damaged by the dust or at least cover it with plastic drop cloths that are taped shut. •

Maintain a sense of humor. Remember that certain things are out of your control and it’s best to laugh rather than upset yourself about things like the weather or delayed delivery of materials.

See the remodeling process as an adventure. Tell the kids that you are “camping in” and transform inconvenience into fun. Along the way, celebrate as different stages of the project are completed.

SPRINGTIME simple organization tips S

tep outside and take a deep breath. The snow is melting and flowers are blooming and the fresh scent of spring is once again in the air. This means that heavy coats and scarves are giving way to short sleeves, and snow shovels are being replaced with small gardening tools. But where to store all of your now-unneeded winter accessories? Effective storage ideas are abundant, and getting organized now will ensure you are prepared when Old Man Winter comes back around. Some hoping to get organized may find it helpful to start by making a list of everything they want to store. This list will help ensure that nothing gets lost once the organizing and storage begins. If you have additional space in a basement or garage, you may want to look into purchasing shelving. Easy-to-install, heavy-duty shelving can be purchased at just about any major local home supply store. Many of these units are designed so that you can leave as much room between the shelves as you like, making it easy to get larger and smaller items onto the same unit and saving you space. It is important that when shopping for storage shelving that you look carefully at the installation process. While most are simple enough to install in less than one hour, some may be more involved, requiring multiple tools. Look before you buy and you will have a smoother process while getting organized. Heavy winter clothing can take up lots of closet space, leaving you with little additional room for your spring wardrobe. If you are looking for clothing storage space, have you considered what may not be under your bed? Many home owners forget about the ample storage space lurking there. Invest in some under-the-bed storage units. Many such units work perfectly for storing heavy coats and sweaters until next season, especially in homes with limited storage space. Simply fold your clothing and additional accessories flat and place them into the storage containers. The containers slide right under the bed for excellent outof-sight storage. These handy units can be found at just about any store that sells storage solutions and are relatively inexpensive.

For city dwellers, storage can take an interesting angle of its own. Stretched to find storage space in often cramped apartments, some builders are responding to the need. Fixes to the storage problem include larger built-in cabinets and a unique process known as raised floors. A section of the floor is elevated like a platform, high enough to include small access doors with space to store boxes, skis, heavy coats or just about anything an urbanite may need to pack away with the coming of spring. Storing all of that winter gear away can be as easy as you make it. Remember, make a list and assess what you will need. Take a look around first to see what you already have that can be used for storage. With just a little preparation, storing your winter items can be as relaxing as a warm spring breeze.

DID YOU KNOW? 18 million new homes and apartment units will need to be built to meet demand over the next decade. A typical new home weighs in at about 339,000 pounds, or more than 150 tons. 16 SWMBIA Home EXPO Magazine

BIG DESIGN Ideas for small homes


here are any number of reasons families might want to make better use of the space they have in their current or new home. As a family grows, their lifestyle changes, and space for storing toys or doing homework is at a premium. Multi-generational living, where elderly parents, grown children or other relatives all live under the same roof has become common. Or it may just be cosmetic, and the best way to keep clutter at a minimum. Home builders and remodelers are responding to the demand by maximizing the utility of living spaces without sacrificing visual appeal. With creative storage and built-in features, dining rooms can become a home offices or game room in minutes, living rooms can

be used for family meals, and foyers can store much more than coats and umbrellas. In new home construction, smaller-scale, walk-able communities have become popular. To accommodate the size constraints of a skinny lot, homes are being designed with features like stacked garages where two cars can be housed trunk to hood instead of side by side. Using flexible walls, attractive flooring material and a roofless interior garage space, the area can easily be converted to a patio for entertaining. Improved energy efficiency of windows and doors means homes now feature more indoor-outdoor connectivity. Moveable walls and outdoor spaces tucked within the home’s floor plan provide for better flexible use of the

space, as well as improved privacy in densely populated areas. The often unused space under a stairwell can be engineered to accommodate filing cabinets or drawers, or even to create a sanctuary for the family pet complete with a bed and gates to close it off. Drawers built into stair risers are a great place to store small items such as gloves and hats or art supplies. The trend extends to home furnishings as well. Murphy beds, where a piece of furniture conceals a bed that can be set up for sleeping in few minutes, have been around for many years. Modern murphy beds are hidden not only in armoires or bookcases, but new designs feature beds that lower from the ceiling electronically at the touch of a button, or fold out from inside a desk or counter. Other creative, multi-purpose furniture designs include dining tables that convert to a billiard table, bookcases that contain fold-down chairs for when you’re entertaining more than the usual number of friends and family, and cocktail tables with trays that pull out for eating in front of the television.

the sale of your home P

utting your home up for sale can be an exhausting, stressful experience. But there are several things you can do to improve your home's marketability. By expending a bit of effort before it goes on the market, you can ensure that your home presents well, stands out from the crowd and doesn’t turn off potential buyers so that you can sell quickly…and at the best price.

Tone Down Personality

Your bookshelves may be filled with PulitzerPrize winners and your collection of Americana figurines may reflect your personal interests, but to home buyers, it looks busy and cluttered, and may distract them from truly seeing your home’s unique architectural features and spacious rooms. Also consider whether family pictures help or hinder a sale; future home owners may not be able to look past your kids’ smiling faces plastered all over the walls and see themselves building their own future in your home. Since you hope to move soon anyway, go ahead and box them up and put them in storage in advance of the open house or showing. While that red accent wall opposite the lime green fireplace perfectly ties in with your ultra modern furniture, a potential buyer at your open house may be turned off immediately and decide that the entire

house doesn’t reflect their style. Consider painting walls a neutral color such as beige or taupe. The interior paint job should be fresh and clean and in a single, neutral color throughout. The same goes for the exterior. Don't forget shutters and windows. If your home has vinyl or aluminum siding, be sure it's clean. Moldy, dirty siding will tell a buyer that your home has not been taken care of properly. Old, matted carpeting will be a detriment to your home selling. Real estate agents all have a dozen stories of a home that sat and sat on the market until the old carpeting was replaced. Then, it sold immediately. If you have hardwood floors under old carpet, tear up the carpet to expose them; today's buyers love hardwood floors.

First Impressions Count

Clean your house top to bottom including walls, floors, furniture and tabletops. Everything should be sparkling clean when a buyer makes that all-important first visit. Don't leave dirty dishes in the sink, crumbs on the counter or laundry stacked in the bedroom. Take a long, hard look at your home from the street. Does it have curb appeal? Is it warm, inviting and well-kept? Make sure by mowing the lawn, weeding garden areas, trimming unruly bushes, resealing the driveway and sweeping the porch. Pay particular attention to your front door. Repaint it if necessary. Polish the doorknob and knocker and clean the glass and screen door. When a buyer waits at the front door to enter, make sure he or she sees that your home was cared for lovingly.

Don’t Burden the Buyer with Repairs

If there are problem areas in your home, get them fixed before the showing. When prospective buyers tour the house and see leak stains on the ceiling or peeling paint, they will also see future work and 28 SWMBIA Home EXPO Magazine

assume that bigger maintenance and repair issues are lurking behind those small problems. This is particularly true in kitchens and bathrooms, which are often the two rooms that make or break a sale. The expenses you incur on the front end sprucing up your home will be cheaper than the profits you could lose by having to lower the price to meet buyer demand. If your home’s appliances, like the dishwasher, oven, refrigerator and washer and dryer, are old and outdated, it could pay to replace them. Buyers do not want to be faced with the possibility of having to replace appliances upon moving in to a new house. Shiny, new appliances already in place will be a big selling point.

Maximize Exposure

Lastly, take advantage of new technology to find unique ways to market your house. Use YouTube, a video sharing website, to introduce yourself and your house for free. Take home shoppers on a virtual tour and tell them about its uniqueness and strengths from a

first-person point of view. Use Internet social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter to create a Web link with a profile of your home. Include pictures and a description of your home’s features. Email the link to your friends and ask them to forward it on to their network of contacts. Get your home listed on real estate websites. There are some that are national in scope and others focus on your specific markets. Examples include Redfin and Zillow. Be sure that you are using traditional marketing techniques to your best advantage. When photographing your home for promotional purposes, invest in a wide-angle lens for your camera so that rooms appear bigger and in proportion when they are displayed on Internet home listing sites or in marketing flyers. If you decide to create a virtual tour, look for professionals who will be able to film and upload your video using the best techniques and technology.



combine function and fashion with edible landscaping


s Americans become more health conscious, farmers’ markets, produce co-ops and community gardening spaces are gaining popularity. Many families want to grow their own food, but may be challenged by a lack of space for a full-sized garden in their yard. But did you know that with the concept of edible landscaping, you can have an attractive-looking yard or patio that also provides fruits and vegetables your family can eat? According to the Ohio State University Extension Department of Horticulture and Crop Science, edible landscaping is the use of food producing plants in the constructed landscape, principally the residential landscape. Edible landscapes combine fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers and ornamental plants into aesthetically pleasing designs. The designs can incorporate any garden style and can include just a few, or be completely comprised of edible species.

Some Reasons to Include Edible Plants in Your Home’s Landscaping:

• Ability to pick and eat fresh, fully-ripe fruits and vegetables • Control the amount of pesticides and herbicides used on your food • Save money by not buying fruits and vegetables at the grocery store • Grow unique types of foods that may not be available in the store Many edible species are not only functional from a food-on-your-table perspective; they are also attractive. For example, some flowers, such as begonias, day lilies, carnations, pansies, peonies and roses can be eaten. They also make a colorful addition to salads or as a garnish on plates. Red and yellow tomato and pepper plants add a splash of color to ornamental beds. To help you get better use of your yard, raspberry or blackberry bushes make a great border, and fruit trees provide shade. Just make sure you consider where you are placing them, cleaning rotten fruit or berries that have dropped onto your patio can be a frustrating and messy chore.

More Ideas For Edible Landscapes Include:

• Put pots of herbs on the patio • Include cherry tomatoes in a window box or hanging basket • Build a grape arbor • Grow nasturtium, violas, borage, or calendula and include flowers in salads • Grow Red-jewel cabbage • Plant colorful pepper varieties alongside flowers • Tuck lettuce, radishes, or other short-lived greens into a flower bed • Replace a barberry hedge with gooseberries • Put basil together with coleus in a planter • Try yellow or "rainbow" chard • Grow chives around the mailbox • Train raspberries up your fence The amount and location of consumable plant varieties you choose to include in your landscaping is completely up to your tastes, both literally and figuratively. Make sure to do your research and know how much sunlight and water each plant requires, what type of soil will best support that species, and how much maintenance you’ll have to do to get the fruits and vegetables you desire.
