Builder Girl was born when a girl moved into a brand new home in a town that didn’t offer many ‘easy buttons’. Online inspiration curbed and destroyed reality, contractors killed confidence, and the yard with no sod and piles of cedar shreds made her cry.
And then…her business sense kicked in. One year later, a landscaped yard, huge granite rocks as sitting areas, granite and slate from the hill country ground were made into a patio, pallet wood from the local dumpster made a table, and about $4,000 later, a yard was born. A brick driveway is also on the way.
Most don’t have the perseverance or the know-how to figure out where to look for the project, remodel, and construction resources. Interpreting videos online can be just as frustrating. And if you are in the real estate marketing, whether you are buying or selling, how can you trust the advice of realtors who ‘may or may not’ be feeding you a line for a commission?
So, Builder Girl connects you with that information. How hard is it to REALLY install gutters on your house? (FYI, if you have a 2-story home, hire someone). What is it really like painting your garage door when it is 99 degrees outside? Your realtor said he could list the house for more if you fixed the bathrooms and the front door. Is landscaping REALLY worth the additional $10,000 asking price?
And we are growing: fast. We have questions that are piling up as we figure out how to answer them all! Women who are building a new house and trying to figure out what’s worth it…and what isn’t!

“No man but feels more of a man in the world if he have but a bit of ground that he can call his own. However small it is on the surface, it is four thousand miles deep; and that is a very handsome property.”

“Many novice real estate investors soon quit the profession and invest. When you invest in real estate, you often see a side of humanity that stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and saving money shelter you from.”
