Home Again: Rebuilding After the Camp Fire . Saturday, April 27, CSU, Chico
Printer-friendly version

From conception to occupancy, learn what it takes to rebuild your home and be your own contractor. The one-day, 7-hour seminar will cover everything from developing your home plan to occupancy. It is recommended for those who are ready to move from the disaster of losing their home to the reality of being home again.

Instructor Keith Warwick will highlight the many aspects of home construction, from hiring an architect and engineer, the permit and licensing process, locating a construction manager to guide you through the bidding process, hiring subcontractors, liability insurance, environmental concerns, and assessing whether you have the skills or the time to be your own contractor. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss scenarios, and will walk away with a better understanding of the home building process. Join us for the best day you will invest in before making the decision to rebuild as your own contractor or not.
