We are wrapping up our series on 'How to Begin a Wellness Home Build' with some guidance on choosing the right contractor for your project. Choosing a contractor can be a tricky task! Not all contractors are created equal. Some contractors are much more experienced in building durable, energy efficient, healthy homes than others.
Want to know why so many home building projects go over budget? Your first guess might be a bad grasp on how much there is to spend, or how much things cost, or maybe that material and labor costs seem to keep going up. And honestly, all of these problems do make a project go over budget.

"Doesn't a healthy home cost more to build than a regular home?" If you have had this thought, please raise your hand. You are not alone in that assumption! The truth is, health and wellness focused homes can cost more to build, but they don't have to!
