A list of builders who build houses in your area can be found by contacting your local home builders’ organization.

Create a list of contractors who specialize in building the style of house you want within your budget.
Get references from friends and family. Inquire about the contractors they have worked with personally or get names of friends who recently had a positive experience with a contractor.
Do your homework
