Budgeting for Your Project
12 Sep 2017 Russ Busa

One of the questions I get most frequently from people contacting us about new jobs is, what will it cost to build my new home / addition / kitchen, etc.? It’s an understandable first question – you need to know what things are going to cost so that you can determine what you can afford – but answering the question without knowing what exactly you’d like to build and what your existing site conditions are, is difficult for any contractor. That being said, I do want to offer you some guidance to help you with your project planning.



The True Cost of Modular Homes
9 Jun 2017 Russ Busa

We’ve all seen the ads for $150,000 two-story 2,500 square foot modular homes in the newspaper or on the web. Sounds great, doesn’t it?

A Tribute to My Father
1 Jan 2017 Russ Busa

"The words that a father speaks to his children in the privacy of home are not heard by the world, but, as in whispering-galleries, they are clearly heard at the end and by posterity." — Jean Paul Richter

The New Year is a time for reflection and for inspiration for the year ahead. I’m beginning 2017 by reflecting on a man who inspired me and this company beyond what words can express. I would like to dedicate this post to my father and mentor, Frank Busa, who passed away in December at 85.
