Insider Secrets of Custom Homebuilding Revealed

What if you could build a brand new custom home and have everything go right?

Most people – especially those in the market for a luxury home – recognize that any major project will have its share of glitches.  What most people don’t know is how much really can go wrong in the custom design/ custom homebuilding process.

“And that,” says Dave Konkol, President of Konkol Custom Homes, with a smile, “is why I wrote this book.”

Dave Konkol puts his 20 years of experience to work for you in his first book, Building a Luxury Custom Home – What You Need To Know.  In this helpful and user-friendly book you will:

  • Learn the 10 critical questions to ask before you build.
  • Find out the 7 most important places to spend money on your home.
  • Understand the top 11 mistakes made by new homeowners…and how to avoid them.
  • Learn the 8 common arguments homeowners and home builders have…and how to avoid them.
  • Discover the starting step most people fail to take when choosing a builder.
  • Uncover the unwelcome surprises that could inflate your custom home cost.

“I realized that writing this book could save people thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of dollars,” Dave said.  “But more importantly, I believe this book can save people headaches and heartaches.

“I’ve learned a lot, and I’ve seen a lot.  There are plenty of horror stories out there of things gone wrong,” he says.  “I want my clients to be among those who have a great experience building their dream home.”

Building a Luxury Custom Home has short, easy-to-read chapters, organized for easy reference during the building process.  “It just started to make sense to me,” he said.  “If I could organize all this information and put it in people’s hands, it not only empowers the homeowner, it also helps me as the builder.”

Although Building a Luxury Custom Home was written for the Central Florida market, its easy-to-read format takes the reader step-by-step through the complete design and construction process and can be useful anywhere in the country.

All proceeds from first book print sales are being donated to Habitat for Humanity of Orlando.
