If your tool skills are limited to a screwdriver and a bottle opener, you can still build your own house.

Teal Panels makes structures from molded polyethylene panels that fasten together using nothing more than a Phillips head screwdriver. The wall and corner panels can be configured into pod-like playhouses, fishing cabins, guest suites, and backyard offices.

You can build a 10-by-10-foot structure in about 90 minutes, says Teal Panels president Lawrence Drake. Pretty zippy if you’re into the tiny house movement.

Drake originally designed the panels to make lightweight camper shells for pickup trucks, but quickly realized the potential of the modular design.

“Everything has been designed to use the fewest number of parts and the simplest building techniques,” says Drake. “It’s easy, accessible construction.”

Highlights of a Teal Panels structure include:

Interlocking tabs help the 21-inch-wide, 20-lb. panels fit together, and waterproof gaskets between the panels seal out air and moisture.

Panels can be ordered with windows and polyurethane insulation. The panels nest together to reduce shipping bulk, and for compact storage.

Lightweight canvas roofing is available, but home owners may decide to build their own roofs from plywood or metal.

Flooring is not part of the package. You’ll have to provide your own using a wood deck or a concrete slab. You can put a Teals Panel structure right on the ground — it’s rot-proof — but you’d be wise to add a PVC vapor barrier over the ground or under a gravel bed to ward off dampness.

Cabinets, vanities, dinettes, and other accessories are available. Space-saving designs include wooden cabinets that fold up when not in use, and canvas “bag cabinets” that collapse to save space.

You’ll have to provide your own plumbing service and electrical service.

Other custom options include skylights, exhaust vents, and exterior colors.

Right now, Teal Panels is putting the finishing touches on their production facilities, and Drake estimates the panels will be available for purchase in late fall. Expect a basic wall panel to cost $175 to $200.

And when you’re done assembling your own mini-house, you can use your other tool — that bottle opener — to celebrate.

New Home Upgrades | Tips on Buying a New Home

newhouse

Buying a new home comes with a maze of options. That’s a good thing. Here’s advice from a pro on choosing them.

When I think of building a new home for myself and my family, the first thing that comes to mind is a big, honking, six-burner, stainless steel commercial-style range with dual ovens, a warming drawer, and more knobs and dials than the cockpit of a 747.

ON HOW TO AVOID FORECLOSURE WITHOUT ANY COST TO YOU!
CONTINUE LIVING IN YOUR HOME UNTIL THE NEW OWNER CLOSES ESCROW!

 

If you cannot refinance, a short sale may be your best option to protect yourself, your business and your family.

In fact, you may qualify for assistance through the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) Program.

Qualifying Bank of America borrowers could receive anywhere from $2,500 to $30,000 in cash upon the close of a short sale by 9/30/2013. The amount of assistance provided under the new program is determined on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration the value of the home, amount owed and other considerations. BofA will approve the short sale PRIOR to going on the market to make it easier to find a buyer and importantly close sooner !

Are you facing Foreclosure ?

Tired of Lender collection calls, and mail ? Facing homelessness for the holidays ? Have a agent that hasn’t sold your property ? Do not know what do ?

A short sale can be an excellent solution for homeowners who need to sell, and who owe more on their homes than they are worth. In the past, it was rare for a bank or lender to accept a short sale. Today, however, due to overwhelming market changes, banks and lenders have become much more negotiable when it comes to these transactions. Recent changes in corporate policy and the government have also improved the chances of getting a short sale approved.

 

    Short Sale Advantages:

  • No cost – your Lender pays for the transaction
  • Avoid foreclosure
  • Qualify to repurchase property in 3 years
  • Possible relocation financial assistance
  • End of paying your unaffordable  mortgage

 

My short sale approval is 93%, because I work with motivated sellers and lenders who want to end the financial nightmare and get owners back on the road to financial health.

Only 9% of property owners qualify for loan modifications and most of those owners lose their property to foreclosure.within two years of receiving the modification because loan modifications benefit the bank not the consumer.

There are both credit and financial benefits for a property short sale

Some Lenders will pay you up to $20,000. Many people, who completed a short sale can qualify for first time homebuyer incentives. My team of qualified, nationally recognized lenders, are standing by to qualify you for your next home, today.

Seriously considering a short sale and not a loan mod, I can solve your problems with a successful short sale.

Completing a short sale will remove the nightmare of collector phone calls at all times of the day and night, unopened registered letters from your lender threatening foreclosure, appraisers showing up at your front door claiming a right to inspect your property, agents driving by and taking pictures in front of the neighbors and most importantly, remove the worried look in the eyes of your spouse and your children.
